More and more people are finding out the hard way why secure password storage is so important for keeping themselves safe from Internet predators looking to steal their important information. A recent report from McAfee shows that people who create so-called “malware” designed to infect computers and potentially steal valuable information such as log-ins and passwords are getting more proficient – and clever – at coming up with ways to steal.
The report showed that the use of “Trojans” has jumped more than 400 percent within a one year period. In 2007, about 100,000 Trojans designed to log keystrokes and record passwords were found. In 2008, that number jumped to nearly 400,000, and projections show this trend has no sign of slowing down in future years.
