Beware of the false Vladimir

In The Netherlands Symantec has launched an infotainment website to explain users the risks of using the Internet and the its solutions to avoid problems with digital assets and sensitive data. You never know who's watching you when you are online, the "false" Vladimir might be there ready to steal your credit card number...


The project reminds of a similar initiative launched last year in New Zealand. Probably the execution is not as good, but the website still does a good job in explaining the risks to a target that is not very aware nor familiar with them.
