How secure really is the web?  Today what most people do; technologists, geeks and the rest of the world revolves around the world wide web
but have we stopped to ask ourself this one question, Is the world wide web really secure?
Even with SSL, encryption tech., there are still vulnerabilities on the web that are being exploited everyday.
Consumer data is being sniffed online; used for analysis, sold to advertisers, and for other purposes unknown to www consumers.
Worst yet is identity theft, someone else is using your credit card details and impersonating you online.

Conclusively, Is the internet really secure or is security just an illusion?
