Yesterday Microsoft announced the latest effort in the fight
against crafty cybercriminals who try to steal our
personal data from the Internet.
Internet Fraud Alert
is a centralized alert system powered by Microsoft technology and managed
by the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance (NCFTA). This powerful tool will quickly inform
financial and online companies about compromised customer account credentials
(such as online usernames and passwords) or stolen credit card numbers.
For more information and to watch a video about how Internet
Fraud Alert works, see A
New Tool to Fight Against Fraud at the Microsoft on the Issues blog.
