People should not be afraid of putting their information online, but should be aware of the issues involved in doing so, according to Get Safe Online.

People should not be afraid of putting their information online, but should be aware of the issues involved in doing so, according to Get Safe Online.

Tony Neate, managing director of the online security watchdog, said that people are naturally worried about who has access to their personal information.

"People have to be aware of the information that they put on and how useful it can be to somebody looking to take over their identity," he added.

He went on to say that the internet is a "fantastic place, but we just need to be aware of some of the issues that surround it".

The news follows an announcement by Norman Data Defence Systems that company chief executives (CEOs) have been targeted by a spear phishing attack.

A fake subpoena has been sent to the CEOs telling them that they are being sued and need to install a plug-in to view the documents. On doing so a Trojan in the plug-in gives criminals access to their entire computer.
