International Computer Security Day

Date: December 04, 2007

Internet users are being warned to never respond to emails which asks for personal details.

Netsafe Executive Director Martin Cocker says criminals are getting smarter and making better use of technology. He says people would be surprised at how sophisticated some of the phishing attacks have become.

Mr Cocker says there are very credible copies of websites and emails, which are sucking in the most unlikely people. He believes more money is being made by organised crime through internet fraud, than through illegal drugs.

International Computer Security Day is being held today, to help highlight the growing number of scams.
