If you travel for the holidays and normally end up using family and friend’s PC/laptops to check email, pay bills, etc. – beware! You have no idea what resides on that system. It could be infected with a virus or key stroke logger. If you send an email or connect to work, you could be opening up others to viruses lurking within. If at all possible utilize a secure remote desktop or clientless VPN solution (GoToMyPC, Secure Access, etc.) to reduce the likelihood that your data will be exposed to unknown entities.
