After my father got scammed by having his dial up changed to a premuin rate number I have been very wary of what is going on. I have broadband, but I still use dial-up for work, imagine my surprize this morning when I started my work session to see a completely different dial up, with a long telephone number and no username/password. I checked my Network Connections, and sure enough my work dial up had been renamed and in its place was an anonymous dial up with no username or password, a quick check of the number showed it began with 00, an international line, then 423, which is the code for Liechtenstein ! I have no idea how this number got on my machine, I have a pop up blocker and I regularly run a virus checker and Ad-Aware, and I never respond to any of those stupid certification messages. Advice for today - if you have a dial up, or you know someone who does, check the number and turn off auto-connect just in case.
