Vulnerabilities in Dial-Up Internet Accounts

So you connect to the internet with FreeServe, BT-Internet or a similar service and you think you are safe from hackers right? Well the truth is you are vulnerable to attack by hacker and worm viruses. We strongly recommend that you download a software firewall from or ASAP. There are free versions that give you a good level of protection and the full versions are very reasonable to buy too. If you are using a broadband service you can also use the software firewall but a hardware firewall would be better.

Once you install a software firewall have a look at the log file and you will be amazed at the number of attempts to connect to your machine from the internet. Some are hackers scanning the entire address range and some are viruses all are malicious and you need to protect your machine from them.
