    New article about dialers
    A new article about the dialer problem is now available at the a² Knowledgebase. Dialers are small programs that change the number you normally dial to get on the internet. The new number is a premium rate number running up a huge phone bill for each call without your knowledge. The article describes how you can easily identify dialers and how you can protect yourself against them.

    Read all about it at the a² Knowledgebase:
