SYSTEM (PC, Cell) SECURITY

Connected and bad people will do bad things!

Why do most systems get infected?

No updates to software (Routers, Switches, Firewalls, Operating Systems, Application SW)

Phishings – Get to click on a bad link or code that infects

Popups – malware, adware, search engine hijack

DEFENSE –

SOFTWARE- Stay updated, SYSTEMS HAVE END OF LIFE. WIndows 7 Jan 2020.

WINDOWS – Use SW Update, Defender and Firewall https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4013263/windows-10-stay-protected-with-windows-security

Add on AVG free as antivirus https://www.avg.com/en-us/free-antivirus-download

HOME ROUTERS – A full reconfig can help get rid of hidden software. On and Off can help.
