Internet Users Care Less About Security

Whether it's the case that we are all too busy, too distracted, or just too confused to do anything about it, the US public as a whole is less careful about online safety than in previous years, according to the current Microsoft Computing Safety Index (MCSI). Security in the world of computing (and by "computing" I include smartphones, tablets and so on) is the definition of a moving target; the methods and types of attacks change constantly. For those of us (most of us) who are not familiar with computer security concepts, it can be a frustrating and sometimes bewildering maze that we have to navigate. For basic help, consult the FLOSS (Free/Libre/Open Source Software) manual page here.
