Symantec’s Internet Threat Meter
The Symantec Internet Threat Meter is a free resource that provides you with up-to-date information on the risk level associated with specific online activities. Unlike some other security meters, Symantec breaks down the current risks by activities, such as E-mail, Web Activities, Instant Messaging, and File Sharing. Here’s what the threat meter is reporting today.
Other security meters, such as Computer Associates, Internet Storm Center, and Internet Security Systems all provide only a single overall rating. Symantec’s threat meter ensures that users are aware of current Internet threats and provides information on how to protect personal data and computers while they are connected to the Internet.
