Internet Security Systems Too Strict?
from the loosen-up-a-bit dept
The common complaint that we hear is that people aren’t careful enough with computer security. However, are we reaching a point where security programs are erring on the side of being way too cautious? People are getting increasingly upset that security programs are blocking way too much that’s legitimate. Personally, I keep having problems with some anti-malware software deleting my backup software. Part of the problem, of course, is that these products don’t do a very good job of giving context. They don’t explain things very well, and many users either just go with the default or if they’re getting annoyed, just disable the software. That doesn’t make anyone any safer.
