BBB advises consumers to follow these tips to protect their computer from malware:
· Research before you click. Before clicking on an unknown popup, take the time to research the company on your own to assure it’s a reputable company or website.
· Don’t believe the message. To persuade you to launch a virus-laden link or provide your personal information, virus authors must earn your trust. They try to accomplish this by composing convincing-looking messages that entice consumers to click the advertisement.
· Protect your personal information. Don’t provide your personal information or credit card information to an unknown company or website. If you’re thinking of purchasing something from a website, there are various icons and software programs that indicate that security software is in place, such as “https” instead of “http” or a padlock icon will show at the bottom of the screen.
· Protect your computer. Installing updates to your operating system can be done for free by enabling the option on your computer’s security center. Keep all anti-virus software up to date and make sure all security patches and updates are installed for programs that access the Internet.
