Recommendations: How to protect yourself
- System Updates
Please ensure to have automatic updates activated in your control panel.
For further information and a tutorial, see this Microsoft Support article.
What you need is one (not more) virus scanner with background protection. Additionally I recommend a special malware scanner to run on demand weekly.
Personally I am using avast! Antivirus Free Edition and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. They offer good protection for free.
- To keep your browser free of advertising, you may install the Adblock Plus browser extension.
It will filter unwanted advertising out of the website´s content.
- To protect yourself from accidentally visiting malicious web sites, install the Web of Trust (WOT) browser extension.
It will display a green (safe), yellow (unknown) or red (potentially dangerous) icon for a visited website within your browser.
In addition, before accessing a dangerous classified web site, a warning screen is displayed.
- Up to date Software
Keep your Windows and your third party software up to date. The easiest way to get infected is an outdated windows, followed by: browser(s) (including add-ons and plug-ins), Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Reader, Java Runtime Environment, your antivirus program and so on. These links may help you to check:
Hardware issues, malware, fire, lightning strike: There is a long list of different ways to loose all your data. Back up your files regularly. Use the windows internal backup function or a third party tool and save your data onto an external hard drive, cloud storage, optical media like CDs or DVDs or (if available) a professional network backup system.
The commonest error when using a computer is "error 80" - what means that the error is located about 80cm in front of the monitor. This is a common joke between IT support technicians but it shows that all the safety mechanisms won´t help if you aren´t careful enough.
- While surfing the internet, don´t click on anything you don´t know. In the worst case, it infects your system with malware.
- Watch your step in social networks! Many cyber criminals use them to spread malware, mine personal pata (to be sold to advertising companies, for example) or simply do damage to other users. Even if a received hyperlink within a message seems to be coming from one of your friends, have a closer look. In addition, don´t click everything.
- When installing software, have a look to each of the setup windows and uncheck any additional toolbars or free programs that may be offered additionally. Most of today´s setup procedures contain potentially unwanted programs so keep them off your system.
- Avoid gaming sites, pirated software, cracking tools, keygens, and peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing programs.
They are a security risk which can make your computer susceptible to a wide variety of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. Many malicious worms and Trojans spread across P2P file sharing networks, gaming and underground sites.
