 Security Updates

Click Repair if a page that breaks out of frames is preventing you from
loading the AutoSurf Player

VERTICALBROWSER.COM is an online application that displays and rotates web pages in frames. Vertical Browser is a free client-side application that requires no downloading. We do not keep AutoSurf user data. No signup is required for the Vertical Browser AutoSurf Player. Our visitors are anonymous. Vertical Browser does not track or log its user's downloaded files.

Due to the risks of domain masking, the real URLs of some sites you visit might not necessarily appear in the address bar of even some well-known browsers. But as pages are being opened, their locations will be identified in the Status Bar at the bottom of the browser window.

Before you make online purchases or share secure information over the Internet please be sure to follow these three steps:
 

1. open in new window
 
   

Click on the 'new' check box next to the address bar and open the web page you want to visit in a new browser window.
 

2. check the URL
 

 

3. check the padlock
 

 

The URL in your new browser's address bar should begin with https://  The letter 's' after 'http' indicates that this is a secure web site.
          
You should have a padlock icon visible in your new browser window. Double click the padlock to verify that the security certificate is issued to the web site you are currently viewing.
 
  •  Never click a link in an e-mail, an e-book, or a third-party site to go to any of your financial accounts. 

  • Always open and use a new instance of your default browser before visiting a secure web site.  

Be careful to avoid submitting to counterfeit sites run by spooking, pharming, or phishing scams (cross-site scripting, user control attacks, and cloaked page redirection). Some browsers may hand over control of an exposed computer to an attacker if a specially made web page is visited. 

              Criminals typically try to trick people into visiting such sites by sending out spam or phishing e-mail messages. Sometimes the sites of these messages contain links to closely look like bank web sites. Others look harmless but behind the scenes they are installing backdoor spyware that malicious hackers can remotely command.

HiSafe Security Mode lets you browse with strict security restrictions without changing your system settings. It doesn't execute runtime script, but only views the document's design surface.  HiSafe security mode is strongly recommended for viewing unreliable web pages or ones experiencing technical difficulties.
 

 

What's the Safest Browser? 

According to TechRepublic, a 2012 study by NSS Labs clearly showed that Microsoft Internet Explorer was significantly better at blocking malware than any other browser tested. In fact, the study showed that no other tested browser even came close to challenging IE. Perhaps it is time information technology professionals reassess their web browser choices. When used with Vertical Browser's HighSafe security mode, Internet Explorer does a better job of blocking malware sites because scripts are not executed. 

In the late 1990s, when Internet connections were slow dial-ups with tiny bandwidth, many people viewed the use of frames as an evil scourge. To have their pages trapped inside someone else's inline frame was described as hot-linking or taking bandwidth in the wrong manner. It was also argued that cross-frame implementation could possibly launch a virus. But after the Internet bubble of the 1990s finally burst, the opposite of accepted conventional wisdom appeared to be true.

Today, the web has high-speed broadband and unlimited bandwidth. Webmasters now want to be linked to by all means because that drives more free traffic to their sites. It also emerged that various companies that defamed inline frames and persuaded developers to avoid them were in fact using them more than anyone else - to set up billion-dollar advertising delivery platforms. Firms that collect user information loathe iframes because surfing in a frame makes it harder for third-party cookies to track the end user. As the trend moves to hands-free AutoSurfing, it is perhaps ironic that the business of blocking frames and crippling the web in order to collected user data is actually driving away traffic and locking itself out of the Cloud.

AutoSurfing lets you monitor 36/576 websites with no typing or clicking. Walk Away From Net Addiction. Feel Free To Do Other Things. Hands-Free.

  • Firewall - A firewall guards the ports to your computer and allows only the traffic you approve of. It offers a basic protection solution for web surfers (with real-time Internet traffic information) and personal computer network security against Internet attacks.


 


The following security enhancements are also recommended: 
 

  • Microsoft Windows Wireless Network - There are certain kinds of local links, such as wireless LANs, that provide no physical security. Because of the existence of these links it would be very unwise for an implementer to assume that when a device is communicating only on the local link it can dispense with normal security precautions. Failure to implement appropriate security measures could expose users to considerable risks.  -The Internet Society

  1. If you are running any kind of network firewall - including the firewall that comes built in to Windows - you won't have to worry about strangers connecting to your laptop. 

  2. Many laptops have a button to push that disables the built-in wireless feature until you hit that button again. Turning off the wireless connection when you are not using it also prevents this from being a problem. 

  3. Change the setting on the computer's wireless card to connect only to 'infrastructure networks' - real wireless access points that actually allow you to surf the Web. To do this, go to ''Network Connections,' and then right click on the entry labeled 'wireless network connection' and select 'Properties' from the drop down menu. Then click on the 'Wireless Networks' tab, and then on the 'Advanced' tab at the bottom of that window. A box should pop up that gives you three buttons to choose from: Select the one next to 'Access point (infrastructure) networks only.'
