Security Advice

Today, spam is still a problem, viruses and other “bad” things are still circulating, and spyware is worse than ever. These are generally lumped into a category called “Malware” these days, from the French “mal” for “bad”.

To protect yourselves, I still advise the use of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, as well as Spybot for anti-spyware, and Avast and AVG for anti-virus. In addition, I use ZoneAlarm for my firewall (to keep the “baddies” from “calling home” and sending your private info to the writer of the spyware). Also, Adobe Reader is now the most secure yet. As well, Mozilla’s Firefox has many new features, and both it and Google’s Chrome browser update often.
