A blog I enjoy may be under attack, and I am worried about being hacked or being infected by a worm. Will Avast protect me from an attack on a blog that I post to? Can other people hack into my computer if I post there? Thanks you guys, I'm really an idiot when it comes to this stuff!

Do you have a firewall? People can hack into your pc at any time if you do not have a firewall, you do not have to be posting anywhere to be hacked. I believe that most AV will kill any worms if they've been kept up to date. Good luck.

ZoneAlarm is free firewall software.
