Are home users a serious target for hackers?

Yes! Home users are arguably the most vulnerable people around simply because they are usually not well protected. Adopting a 'path of least resistance' model, intruders will often zero-in on home users - often exploiting their 'Always on' broadband connections and typical home use programs such as chat, Internet games and P2P files sharing applications. HackerGuardian Scanning Service allows home users and network administrators alike to identify and fix any security vulnerabilities on their desktop or laptop computers.
