    Hi everyone! I have started up an online security magazine called PeskyMalware.

    PeskyMalware.info was created to provide industry leading news, reviews and help to all internet users. It is a community project, and therefore we recruit anyone who is willing to help. PeskyMalware has been designed to provide information in an easy to understand language, so even the most technologically challenged of us can understand it.

    The first issue of the magazine can be found at http://peskymalware.info/magazine.html.

    The contents provided in the issue is as follows:
    • How to stay safe online
    • How to get rid of malware and keep it that way.
    • Comparatives of security software.
    • Honeypots vs Honeyclients


    If you have any feedback or would like to help please contact me.

    Great idea but please make the magazine available as HTML instead. Not everyone wants to (or can, think Digital Divide) download 18mb of content - particularly when it is just 13 pages thin.

    I am currently getting the PDF developed into a flash booklet. It should then reduce the size to 1.85mb :) But until then the PDF will be used :oops:

    Thanks for all the comments :D

    Edit: There is now a flash booklet available :)

    'To view please click here' takes getting used to. You have such a great site design, why not build on that? It saves a lot of work too since you can use a CMS and won't have to design everything by hand. That way, you'll be able to focus on content more :)

    The hits are going down at the moment as I haven't been able to update the site. As soon as exams finish (tomorrow) there will be many updates including a change in the target of the site :) It will become much more community orientated :D

    Thanks for all the comments :)

    The site has been edited :) It is now more of a blog/magazine. All the articles in the original magazine will be posted, and more articles will be added throughout the week :thumb:

    Yes, I know :( I am unable to edit my first post, so I cannot change the link. Simply visiting http://peskymalware.info will take you to all the articles etc :)
