Program exposes computer hacking

From page A5 | November 12, 2013 |

A program to help keep The Grinch away — tips to avoid holiday computer hacking — is planned for 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 25, at the next meeting of the Woodland Senior Center Computer Club.

“This time of year is an easy time for hackers to get you to open their computer viruses,” says Roger Peeples, vice president and resident guru of the club. “Viruses are like the common cold. You’d think someone would have cured both by now; unfortunately, computer viruses are just getting stronger and smarter.

“Today, in addition to traditional viruses, there are Trojans, worms, ransom ware, spy ware, adware and plenty of other ‘wares.’ ”

The computer industry term for all this is “malware” and the public is invited to the Nov. 25 meeting to hear Peeples present tips on what to do — or what not to do — to be safe. There is no charge; light refreshments will be served.

The event will begin at 1 p.m. in the meeting rooms of the Woodland Community and Senior Center, 2100 East St., Woodland. Members will be asked to ratify changes to the bylaws and vote on officers for 2014. There will be no meeting in December.

Questions about the club may be answered on the club’s website, www.wsccc.com; if not, a message phone is available at 530-662-9598, or call Jill Brooks at 530-668-9522.
