Protect Yourself From Malware Online

1st Dec

There are a lot of words that get thrown around when discussing attack attempts on your computer.

Trojans, Bots, Worms, Malware and spyware are the most common types of attack. It sounds like a nightmare and if your computer isn’t protected, it can quickly turn into one for you. There are three main ways to protect yourself, your business and your family. Because lets be honest, attempted attacks aren’t going away so it’s better to deal with it.

1. Educate yourself (learn how to use the internet safely)

2. Anti-virus system (we highly recommend CryptoPrevent Software)

3. Common sense (don’t open and download strange emails or files)

  • Most of us realise that there is malware on the Internet, but not all of us realise just how varied the types are.
  • Malware differs in the ways that it affects your data and in the exact damage that it does.
  • However, trojans, bots, viruses and other malware types can be dealt with proactively, by filtering emails, installing anti-virus cyber-ware and keeping computer updates current.

Malware can cause a lot of damage to your computer, such as changing how other applications work and locking or destroying data, but it does have limitations. So with the right protect like CryptoPrevent Software, you can stay protected. You can also rely on us at Tetrabyte to keep your business safe, and manage your security online for you.
