Yesterday Microsoft announced the latest effort in the fight against crafty cybercriminals who try to steal our personal data from the Internet.

Internet Fraud Alert is a centralized alert system powered by Microsoft technology and managed by the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance (NCFTA). This powerful tool will quickly inform financial and online companies about compromised customer account credentials (such as online usernames and passwords) or stolen credit card numbers.
