However, it is the User’s responsibility to assure that the computer they are using is properly protected against prejudicial “software”, computer viruses and worms. Moreover, they should be aware that without the proper safety measures, (for example, without safe configuration of the internet browser, updated antivirus software, firewall software and the non-usage of software from questionable origins), the risk that the personal data and passwords be accessed by a non-authorised third party is aggravated.
