My knowledge is extremely basic!
But I have always been interested in everything "computer" and have followed or am following all the news, computer and otherwise.
The reason I learned about Bleeping Computer was a ransom ware shut-down on my PC, Windows 7, and the rescue by a computer expert, probably thanks to BC when I asked him about the best site to check.
I maybe a somewhat unusual newcomer to this forum because of my 76 yrs on this planet, but I am very aware of the great vulnerability we all have to live with. So, being a strong believer in prevention, I would like to "arm" myself with as much knowledge as possible and hope to find some patient help here at BC!
Also, in order to warn my 4 "kids", now in their 40s, to be much more careful with private information-volunteering.
I am not on any message site, except facebook, which I joined only a week ago.
(In 1970 I had bought programming lesson, bec. I knew what was coming, but with my 4th child on the way, I didn't have enough discipline and am forever sorry about it!)
