DANGERS OF THE INTERNET

Dialer (Or Dialler)

 

A dialer is a program that will try to use your computer or modem to connect to one or more high toll numbers or internet sites if your computer is infected by it. The high toll numbers may be calls to pay-per-minute phone services or long-distance numbers. It often refers to dialers which connect without your, or the user's full knowledge when it does connect you to an Internet porn website which will automatically charge you for accessing the service and will appear on your next phone bill.
