Default Safeguard users online fraud

The new product aims to safeguard users from online identity theft, protecting them from online scams like phishing, pharming and from keystroke loggers, which are designed to steal p***words, account numbers and other confidential information.

The more unnerving threats of going online, such as identity theft, phishing, pharming and keystroke logging, have been with us for sometime.

To this end, Symantec is currently running a beta testing program for a new product called Norton Confidential.

The Norton Confidential system focuses on the point of transaction. Prior to users logging in, making a purchase or otherwise submitting personal data, Norton Confidential scans both their PC and the web site, and attempts to protect them from known or suspicious phishing sites, crimeware and other threats designed to steal their information. Among the features claimed, the new security system blocks or warns users from visiting known or suspected phishing Web sites; protects them from keystroke loggers and programs designed to steal identities; confirms the authenticity of banking, shopping and other sites; and blocks p***word information from going to unauthorized sites.
