MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Attorney General William Sorrell is warning consumers to be extra vigilant against credit card fraud as the holiday shopping season gears up.

Sorrell says data security breaches and credit card fraud are significant problems and cause millions of dollars in losses to consumers each year.

He’s offering a series of tips, including recommending anti-virus software updates for anyone shopping on line. Sorrell says several software companies offer good free versions of their anti-virus software.

He says people should never shop online from a library or other public computer network.

More tips are available on the attorney general’s website.
