Valentine Warning

People looking for love online this St Valentine's Day are being warned about the rise of DTDs - that is, Digitally Transmitted Diseases.

Online lovers be warned! DTD's are on the rise...

Security software company PC Tools is urging people to be wary of contracting viruses and infections in the digital world.

As in real life, virtual venues for dating and social networking can be dangerous if people are unaware of potential risks, warns the software company.

Michael Greene, a vice president at PC Tools, says criminals are aware of the increasing trend to find love online and are "applying more sophisticated techniques to target the digitally active consumer".

The company says the single and lovestruck are particularly vulnerable on Valentine's Day as they are more likely to open love-themed messages that contain bugs.

Emails entitled "meandyou.exe" and "onlyyou.exe" are among those being used by cyber criminals to gain control over users' computers.

Mr Greene says computer viruses are often behind identity fraud - many victims wake up "the morning after" to find their identity has been stolen and their bank account drained.

"Cyber criminals attempt to trick consumers into clicking on hyperlinks that can either direct them to infected websites or download infected files," he said.

According to a study of 19 million websites by Web of Trust, adult websites pose the single most significant security threat for the digitally active.

Out of all the websites deemed dangerous by the security add-on service, 31% of them specialised in adult content.

Like all infections, a DTD has the potential to spread to everyone the victim knows.

Experts advise all internet users to help protect themselves against infection by installing anti-virus software.
