Security is no laughing matter, but AVG Technologies (http://www.avg.com) knows how to have fun with a serious topic. The company recently launched its “Hugs for Hackers” campaign, aimed at educating IT pros about current Web threats. At the Hugs for Hackers Web site (http://www.hugsforhackers.org), you can find out about top threats, learn how to avoid getting hacked, and watch some videos that illustrate recent hacks—for example, the Major League Baseball Web site hack, and Alicia Keys’ MySpace site hack. The entire Hugs for Hackers site is rather tongue-in-cheek, but the message isn’t: Hackers are constantly trying to break into networks and steal information, and you need to protect yourself and your organization more than ever before.
