Malware: What can happen to you!!!

Panda Software issued their annual list of 10 most interesting attacks or malware. The bad guys are out to get you in so many different ways, including:

  • track whether you view pornography
  • collect your personal information
  • turn on your microphone and/or webcam so you can be watched
  • change icons, hide file extensions, delete or remove access to tools and options
  • trick you into thinking you are being protected.
Take home message: Make sure you keep your anti-virus software updated.

If you need anti-virus software, one option that is free and fairly user-friendly is AVG's Anti-Virus, which can be downloaded here.
