Most of us have had to deal with a computer virus or some sort of malware by now. It wasn’t fun; it was annoying, time consuming, and very frustrating. Here are some tips on keeping your computer safe.
The single most important question you should be asking
Email, while useful, can be a dangerous thing. Reading an email is usually safe if you have the latest security patches, however some attachments can be harmful. Any type of file can be attached to an email, including .exe program files. Look for the common warning signs so you can avoid viruses, worms, and Trojans.
Phishing is a cybercrime that where a target is sent an email which appears to be real to lure the individual into providing sensitive information such as social security numbers, passwords, credit card information, or bank account numbers. The criminals then use the information to access important accounts which can lead to identity theft.
