What about having another board (part of the forum) for security questions, threat alerts, etc???

I find myself asking these types of questions in the "Free clinic" or "Windows Parlor" sections... why don't we devote a section to the subject (since this is apparently becoming more and more of a concern for people).

(Or would this type of board end up helping the "hackers" by them knowing how people are combating cyber-crime, rather than helping the common public...?? And Yes I'm aware of the FAQ section, where tips and tricks can go...)

I don't think a separate folder is required. Most of the time (if the security topics are Windows-related), they can just be posted in Windows Parlor.

If the security issues are general, they can go in the Internet Truckstop. The Free Clinic is for people that actually have a problem (ie. Windows not booting, BSOD's, random crashing, etc).
