In my eyes, BleepingComputer is the best site for anti malware/virus removal etc. Sure everyone can have their opinions, but like I said this is my opinion.

 

However, I never really understand if BC also provides useful information about defending against hackers? Or any hacking general information that we should know just to be safe?

I found these pages pretty useful:

 


AMD FX-8120 Zambezi | GeForceGTX550Ti | 16GB G.Skill DDR3 1600 | ASUS M5A99X Evo | Windows 7HE SP1....or something like that!

quietman7 has a few topics in his list of "What to do" pages.

He has also written a few good responses to this topic.

 

If you are very lucky, he may reply to this question -

I have some info in this pinned topic: I have been hacked...What should I do?

More reading resources:

BTW...your topic title is misleading as it suggests BleepingComputer is an advocate of hacking.

I find it a bit incredible the number of users who never read any of the articles or follow a tutorial on how to detect, remove and prevent re-infection of viruses.  They post the least informative question and neglect to get system  parameters conveyed to anyone.  BC has a huge number of members and visitors and is as informative as any can be when dealing in generalities.

Hello mjd -

I find it a bit incredible the number of users who never read any of the articles or follow a tutorial on how to detect, remove and prevent re-infection of viruses.  They post the least informative question and neglect to get system  parameters conveyed to anyone.  BC has a huge number of members and visitors and is as informative as any can be when dealing in generalities.

One can do no more than agree with your observations. The main problem is that most users would rather ask a banal question than search for a listed (and already posted) reply to their questions.

 

I tend to quote a lot of the material from quietman7 that has been listed for several years, and is updated on a regular basis.

Items like the ComboFix tutorial are ignored by many who want a reply supplied in a hurry - Then they regardless ignore the warnings -

 

For a signed in member of only 1 month, your observations are quite spot on -

 

Thank You -
