When will the internet become secure? once i ask this question most of my colleagues often respond by asking , 'Dude, but is there a problem with security now?'. If the windows users still have doubts on where their security lies they can have a look at this article explaining 'Operation aurora' a successful attack against Google by the Chinese crackers. Read the article here
While attacks are happening at Intel Google and similar software giants, how can you say you are secure? What you think if someone can access your G mail data intentionally and pinpointing your account from millions?
See this sentence quoted from itmanagement.earthweb.com

PS: As long as you are not worried about what the government is doing to your nation, you don't need to worry about internet security.
