I don't keep any financial or personal info on my computer for just this reason. Now if they installed a key logger on me they might get my credit card number, but at least I won't be liable for charges if it is used by a thief. Don't use a check card if you can help it. Also don't keep cookies for sites that you use to buy stuff (like Newegg).

Im a noob with security software and alot of people are mentioning things i dont know a thing about.

My brother has a lot of enemies on xbox live and i get pinged/ddos'd more times than i would like. If anyone can throw me a bone here and help me out it would be great.

Also, i'm using a d-link dir 655 router. anything i can do with that model to increase my safety from potential attacks. And as for a firewall, im using the standard windows version right now, i tryed to install Zonealarm but unfortunately that gives me BSOD's bc of an apparent conflict with AVG.

I coulnt never get haxxored nope i Have a 4096Mbit ecprtyon server machine for my connedctoions and no one can get through them.also i have northon anti-ubervirus 7.0 and it blocks ANY haxxor ever

No, I've never been hacked, I use a firewall and router w/ firewall. I'm not all that worried though, I'm not worth hacking.

I never used a firewall or a antivirus in my life. And haven't gotten any kind of hacking. I just had to reformat couple times for the viruses and spywares.

I was interested in hacking before and i know some stuff about it so i am cautious. I check suspicious files thru a online virus scan and don't look at

I recommend setting the browser to delete cookies upon exiting the browser if you are using Firefox. I don't know of any other browsers that have this option.

Never been hacked, all I have is an anti virus. The "uber leet hackers" who have a "vendetta" against you probably don't know the first thing about hacking. The mass attacks can't really be considered hacking and not clicking on the free ipod nanos usually keeps you safe from those.

I'm port scanned on a hourly basis, I believe it to be because I have a web server setup. Been going on for years now nothing has happened, so I'm pretty sure I'm good.

For those acting as if their Linux machines are so secure you have to remember the VAST majority of hacks now a days are social. Tricking the user to install, download, allow etc. A windows or OS X gateway could just as easily be as secure if not used as a workstation as well.

Credit cards dont automatically take money out of your bank account.

Because most card companies offer theft protection where the unauthorized charges will be dropped in a relatively short amount of time. It also is not linked to your bank account. An atm card goes straight to your actual account and is a way bigger hassle getting the bank to put your money back in. Look at it like this, stealing credit cards is stealing from the bank. Stealing atm cards is stealing from you personally.

Some certain groups of people have tried to hack my computer before but failed. So no, thankfully I haven't been hacked.

No one has ever successfully managed to hack me, but someone did attempt to WinNuke me a long time ago, but my awesome blockage of port 139 defeated them instantly.
