VeriSign on Tuesday launched a Web site called Verisignsecured.com, which is designed to help educate Web surfers on how to make Internet shopping safer. "We have launched this site so they can go and check some of these tips--not only what you should do in a generic sense, but also what is happening in terms of new scams and rip-offs," Gregg Rowley, VeriSign's vice president for Asia Pacific said.
The move is designed to promote public awareness of the risks of shopping online. Internet users are spending far more online than was predicted four years ago, despite the uncertainty generated by viruses, Trojan horses and other online threats, VeriSign said.
