Heyyyy! What goes on? My name is Smiley, and I’m here to tell you about a little thing called “Internet Safety”. I know you’ve probably already heard about it, but just in case you haven't, that’s where I come in!
Let’s start with viruses. As you know, they’re nasty little boogers. A virus is basically a computer program that is part of another and inserts copies of itself. They get into your computer and do some pretty grody things. They can use the information on your computer to hack into your accounts and really hurt you. The best way to avoid them is to get a computer protection program, like AVG.
Some Viruses Are:
Trojan Horse - Spread through e-mail
Worm - Spread through e-mail,
open network shares and
Slammer - Works by taking
advantage of a bug in Microsoft
SQL Server 2000
Code Red – Attacks computers using
Microsoft IIS 2.0 Web server and
Windows 2000 indexing .
They're Bad Chiz! PS: It is illegal to make viruses
Never give out any of the following,
through your username or anything else:
Your name or names of your immediate family and friends
Your phone number (cell or home)
Your address (mailing or e-mail)
Bad guys can track you down
using all of these things in less
than 20 minutes!
SarahSmith15 Bad Username. Why?
A predator is someone who wants to hurt you.
They will lure you away from safety (friends, family) just to do bad things to you.
Only talk to people online that you know IN PERSON.
People aren’t always who they say they are, so DON’T ALWAYS TRUST THEM!
They Are Also Very Bad Chiz! I’m gonna get you! Lalalala…… Predator Prey
Sexting is sending inappropriate pictures of yourself or others (usually naked) through your cell phone.
This is just plain bad phone etiquette people!
If discovered, you may have to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life and it can land you in jail for a long time!
Don't be a jail-bird!
Flaming is when you send someone a threatening or hurtful text or e-mail.
This is never the way to solve your problems with someone because you could really hurt their feelings!
Remember, you can never take those kind of things back.
If someone sends you something hurtful, just delete it. Fighting never solves anything.
PS: Spamming is when you send someone a bunch of random crud, like forwards.
“ Copyright is a form of protection granted for original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression. Copyright covers both published and unpublished works. “
In English, this means that Copyright protects people’s ideas. If you steal someone’s copyrighted idea and don’t give them credit, it’s called plagiarism and is punishable by law.
Some Other Things to Know About Copyright:
It IS okay to copy and paste
pictures off the internet for schoolwork.
It’s NOT okay to download
music off the internet without paying for it.
It’s NOT okay to buy music,
then burn copies of it to sell/give to people.
ANYTHING can be Copyrighted,
whether it’s music, paintings or books!
C Copyright C Leave the stealing to me!
Hoaxes are things
that try to trick
you into believing
them (like the
picture to the right.)
You can’t believe
everything you see
Real? Fake? or Come on guys! That's so fake!
Thanks for watching my PowerPoint!
Just in case you're wondering, Fin is French for "the end."
