Teenagers putting computers at risk

Almost 40 per cent of European teenagers are unconcerned by the risks of viruses and other threats when downloading music or video content, according to a survey by a security vendor.

The report by McAfee found that 56 per cent regularly use illegal file sharing sites like Kazaa and Limewire, which the security firm said were well-known sources of malicious content.

"A quarter don't worry about internet security and a third rarely check to see if their security software is up to date," said a spokesman for McAfee. Teenagers putting computers at risk - vnunet.com
