Been doing some thinking about MITB

For those that are not aware of what MITB is. It's basically a hidden browser trojan that could capture and or change online financial transactions without your knowledge. I have been reading about this and it doesn't seem there is a lot that can be done unless your bank offers out of band authentication. Which means they contact you in some way outside of your pc to authenticate transactions. I realize that once your infected then there is really no way to protect yourself. I was reading this article and I think it's a good idea. What do you guys think? Increasing your banking security by using a dedicated browser (Preston Hunt)

Yeah, I generally do my banking on a browser specifically for that. The plethora of browsers out there kinda helps in a way, I can do my browsing and stuff on one browser while I use a few others for specific activities. Just gotta remember to keep em updated when necessary.

There are certain circumstances keeping me from getting one at the moment, but as soon as I can buy one without going broke, I plan to buy a 30-32GB one for the OS and use my current HDD for file storage. If you had to choose between the two...

Thinking about a new SSD
Im thinking of getting around a 250GB SSD. Do they last any longer or shorter than HDDs? Will they make my computer faster? The big question: Is it worth it, or should I go with a 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD?

thinking about SSD
Hello again, Looking to move my primary W7 machine to SSD in March. Plan on a small one, probably 32gigs for W7, CS4 Design Premium, etc. etc. Is this too small, do I have to go 64gigs? Also, most of the reviews out there, at least on New Egg are average except for the Intel ones. Any...

Windows Seven, should be renamed Windows. Just simply Windows. No suffix. No XP, no Vista, no codenames, no numbers. Just simply Windows. This OS is by far the best I have used. Sure it has some bugs here and there, but that's what happens with Betas. It could be: Windows Basic Windows...
