Look At Download Sites Carefully Before Using
The latest virus overtaking computers is called Flammer. Like any other computer virus, Flammer overtakes your machine and can lead to loss of data, hours of frustration and eventual replacement. Due to malicious programs on the internet, it’s important to look at download sites carefully before using.
Believe it or not, some websites are specifically built for the sole purpose of infecting unassuming user’s computers. Then, these sites are programmed to earn money by causing pop ups to show up on the screen which offer to clean up the computer for a fee. These pops up are just a scam and they actually make the problem worse.
Never download content from a site that is not trusted. Your computer should always be protected with reliable, up to date antivirus software. Then be sure to pay attention to the messages and warnings the software gives you when you visit sites. Browsers have also built in programs that scan sites and links as another line of defense.
If you must download a video, document or song, make sure that the website is trusted. If you have any doubts, don’t click on any links or you may end up having to replace your current computer.
