My real name is Rich Walston and I enjoy the F-Secure community and I hope that there are other people from New York on here somewhere who maybe can meet up and start a group for Computer Security issues. Especially when it comes to a lot of people WAY TOO MANY to mention hacking and cheating on First Person Shooters etc. They are using the computers to hack etc. Leaving the other parts of the forum to that though. I am a Paramedic who went back to school and I am looking for online friends who just want to chat here or there. I am also participating in the F-Secure Internet Security Preview Testing. I am into Skyrim on my Xbox 360(My PS3 was pronouced dead) and I go to college online now for Psychology. That's all there is to say about me for now :). Thanks for reading my post guys. Rich
Nice to have you onboard

Hi, I'm Sladey, new here. Came for the freebies.
For online shopping, I have a credit card with a very stringent low limit but since the CC companies will pick up the tab on a breach, why do I care? Probably the inconvenience.
I've been in IT security since 1998 and interested since 1993 when I ran a BBS then a dial-up Linux server. I've only recently started using Internet backing, since my bank is now providing a 2FA for my accoutn. Imagine my disappointement as they now allow a bypass of that!
I post many places, under several pseudonyms. I'll go and wander throught the forums now. :)
Hmm, I really haven't considered security much when shopping online. But if I buy something online, I use just the biggest shops that (hopefully) can be trusted. I don't use online banking that much, about once or twice a month I log in and out, no problems there either.
I have been using F-secure since 1999 and never had a single problem except when I VOLUNTARILY disabled it to make some experiments - and had to re-format the pc.
I had experiences of bad homebanking always stopped before the damage was done. I strongly suggest to use F-secure together with another small program like "Superantispyware" they work perfectly together and keep your net browsing incredibly safe. I trust the home banking login with virtual keyboards only if used by my own pc, otherwise I will not log in and use alternative banking methods.
The guys at f-sec are excepional, all of them.
My experience of online shopping has been pretty good over the years. A part from CC companies blocking transactions for security reasons and not bothering to call you, but expecting you to call them to resolve the issue.
Looking forward to getting a set of the new laptop stickers =)
