The Conficker Virus, one of the world’s most virulent PC viruses that is said to have infected up to 3 million PC’s, is set to be let loose tomorrow on April Fool’s day. However, this horrible little creature is no laughing matter. With this in mind we thought we’d give you the head’s up on how to protect your family when you are using your PC.
Solutions: Protecting yourself against malware, spyware and making sure your firewall is protected can be fixed easily with the likes of Norton 360 Version 3 security software. This particular package is easy to set up and use and can be installed quickly. As well as malware and spyware, it helps defend against botnets, identify theft and automatically backs up your files. With phishing, just be very careful when you receive emails that are asking for personal information. Banking and other financial institutions will not ask for passwords over email, which should immediately set of alarm bells. They also never ask for credit card details, after all, with banks especially, they should already have that information on file.
