SANS Ouch! Newsletter - Browser Security & Privacy
We touched on browser security and privacy last month in our posts on "They're Watching You...Through Your Browser." The November security awareness newsletter from SANS covers these topics with some additional sound advice:
- Keeping Your Browser Current (keep it patched!)
- Plugins and Add-ons (only install what you need and keep them updated)
- Browser Security Features (Warning when visiting a malicious site)
- Privacy (how to limit exposure to tracking cookies)
In addition, the newsletter provides some excellent resource links on how to ensure that you are properly securing the different browser types - Internet Exporer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.
