I have posted this before so maybe it's time to say it again.Four Easy Steps that will prevent malware infection:
from all wired and wireless network connections (Ethernet, Bluetooth, Infrared, Router, Wifi, Cable Satellite, Modem)
all CD/DVD-ROM/DVD-RAM drives (and floppy disk/zip drive if you still have one).
3. Carefully super glue
or expoxy shut ALL other connectors
, especially Firewire/USB ports and Ethernet cable port. Advanced users can use high grade solder instead.
the computer in an safe place where no other users have access and it will not be prone to any dreaded dust bunny
Now you can relax, kick back and enjoy a cup of coffee knowing cyber criminals cannot access your computer or personal data. As the Great One
would say..."How sweet it is
Seriously, no single product is 100% foolproof
and can prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time.Security is all about layers
and not depending on any one solution, technology or approach to protect yourself from cyber-criminals. The most important layer is you
...the first and last line of defense. Unfortunately, it has been proven time and again that the user is a more substantial factor
) in security
than the architecture of the operating system or installed protection software. Cyber-criminals succeed because they take advantage of human weaknesses...relying heavily on social engineering
to exploit the the weakest link in the security chain
Thus, a multi-layered defense using an anti-malware
and anti-exploit solution to supplement your anti-virus combined with common sense
and following Best Practices for Safe Computing
provides the most complete protection.
