The Five Most Dangerous Internet Security Myths

Eric Larkin reported in PC world that we must get rid of myths about theInternet to stay safe online.
Myth No. 1:
Maladjustment, vandalize your computer.
Reality # 1:
Gone are the days when youngsters saw 15 minutes of fame. Organized crime is the culprit. They want money. Online marketers make black square malware on computers that money. You assume PCs to send spam, steal logins and credit card information or hack game accounts.Webmail accounts using stolen transfers of contact lists inquiry and online games to sell in order to attack the elements or the in-game currency for real money. Financial fraud by cyber-criminals have cost consumers and businesses billions of dollars.
Myth No. 2:
All you need is a good antivirus program.
Reality # 2:
Wrong. A good antivirus program will be much help, but the antivirus companies are in a constant battle against cyber-criminals locked up in an effort to make a stepbefore the antivirus software. Yes, often, the security software can prevent the attacks, but sometimes there are holes in the software and the criminals the upper hand. They need more security software than just a good antivirus program to protect you from cyber-crime.
Myth No. 3:
You're all right, if only careful where you surf.

Reality # 3:
This thinking is outdated. Several years ago, one could recognize whether a site was dangerous by itself, and ifThey have been careful with your e-mail, you could go without antivirus software. Not anymore. Now, personal pages, and big-name company sites are hacked by cyber criminals with deficiencies in the security software to install malware. You would have to be an expert to identify a hacked site or an e-mail that was attacked, too. In addition to antivirus software, you need to protect anti-spyware, anti-rootkit and a two-way firewall, together with a team of technicians to you from cyber-criminals.
Myth No. 4:
"If itis not broke do not fix it "requires knowing when something is broken.
Reality # 4:
Today, there are malicious hidden processes, threats, files or registry keys, and you need to remove advanced anti-rootkit technology to them.
Myth No. 5:
The worse myth. We are all doomed. Stay Offline.
Reality # 5:
Yes, you can be hacked, but if you know the risks and prepare yourself to enjoy enough of what the web has to offer. By following these simple steps, you can be protected fromCyber-criminals.
* Install antivirus + anti-spyware, anti-rootkit and a two-way firewall on yourcomputer.
* Make sure you fully support your computer daily security updates,automatic upgrades to new software and security software.
* Did you monitor your computer every day malware and malicious code stopped before they can harm your computer.
* Get the protection for e-mails and attachments.
* Have your ownTeam of technicians to keep your computer clean and running.
Do not fall hostage to cyber criminals. Accept not the worst myth that the fraudsters themselves, that is the internet and the only good way of theInternet as little as possible.
