Hello Pwners! Today Lets get back to the basics!
Hackers have become very common nowadays and they are planning to produce new malwares everyday so it is very important to protect your computer from all such threats to remain safe. In the earlier days, malware were used to destroy files and gain access to them but now most of the malwares being produced are profit based and hackers think to generate profits from such programs.
These online hackers are mostly looking to get your banking information. Hackers usually send these malware in the form of emails and when the user opens this email, the program is installed in your computer and the malware gains access to the files in your computer. There are a few ways you can use to protect your computer from any kinds of viruses.
The first thing you need to make sure is that your computer is updated and secure from any kind of viruses or malicious software. Usually the antivirus programs we use are not always completely secure and they contain certain loopholes that can be breached by the hackers to gain access to your computer.
The software companies that there software is not completely perfect and that is the reason why they tend to release updates to their programs and you should make sure that you install these updates to get the maximum security. It is also recommended to run online security programs that enable browsing security and this way your computer can be protected from online threats.
Random pop-up windows that usually pop up when you’re browsing can be very dangerous so it is important to be very cautious of them. Most of the pop ups are just annoying rather than harmful but you should always try not to click on them and close them by other means and if these popups try to install any program automatically you should cancel the installation right away.
Another way to stay protected is to think several times before installing malicious software. Some people download and install programs right away without even checking them properly but it is recommended to think at least thrice before installing any program on your computer.
Before installing a program, google it and search about it and gain some information and if you’re uncertain about something try to contact somebody who has proper IT knowledge and guide you through the installation of such programs.
Hopefully this helps keep your computer free of malware!
