U.S. reviews Aussie computer program against hackers

hackersInternet has been known to be a new worldwide avenue for international trade and currency exchange which involves billions of dollars. It was reported that Australian cyber experts are developing a computer program giving permits to Internet Service provides (ISP) to issue warning to their internet customers about hackers trying to control their PCs and could possibly limit internet access hacked computers.

The U.S. government officials have been actively meeting with leaders in the industry as well as cyber experts purposely to enhance online safety and security. They have trying to hit a balance in internet security while safeguarding at the same time the privacy and civil liberties of the American people and industry.

This U.S. initiative was undertaken amid fears and alarming number of computers owned by private, corporate, and government offices which are reportedly under the control of hackers and other computer criminals. Hence, other Cyber experts and government officials are increasingly interested.  The plan is proposed to take effect in Australia by December this year. Close door meetings have already been conducted and private discussions on the security features have already been outlayed for its launching by the end of this year.

Computer hackers usually overtake PCs by a botnet, which is a network of thousands of hacked computers. Hacker control these computers using different units which are connected to a botnet server. Accordingly, owners of these computers are not aware that their units have been hacked or linked to a botnet. Most of the times, these hacked computers are being used to shut off target websites, to send off malicious codes or spam.

According to cyber experts, if there is greater security environment in using internet in industry and business, there will also be better privacy to internet users, hence, it would certainly assure growth and build confidence in a longer term.

    ISP’s and free mail providers like gmail don’t even take action when they receive direct notice of hacked users. What makes anyone think they’re going to spend money to fix the problem? Google’s gmail doesn’t even have anyone working in abuse to respond to complaints.

      Well, in my opinion, this could possibly provide a lot of opportunities for users to get involve in protecting their own interest. And if this program will indeed be available in the market, I believe it would be affordable for the worldwide computer users. We’d just expect that it would happen. Thanks for the comment.
