Who may need my computer? – You ask – it is not a state secret, nor access to billions of dollars. In fact, the “hacked” computer can present a serious threat. For example, attackers can still use your PC for DDoS-attacks – and you know it, your Internet traffic “eat” all the money from the account …

– do not forget to use anti-virus software regularly update anti-virus databases to scan the computer;
– use a firewall – “firewall” that controls access applications on your PC to the network and the Internet;
– stay tuned software used, because often new versions released for “closing” discovered “holes”;
– do not open e-mail messages from unknown senders, do not click on suspicious links;
– do not use Apps from unknown suppliers;
– use strong passwords to protect the information;
for network access “open” only those files and folders that do not contain confidential information;
– back up data regularly;
– make sure the computer when it is used by children;
– disconnect from the Internet, unless you need to use it at the moment.
