The Busy Computer Seasons: a Virus Writer’s dream!
by André Thomas
In the world of computers, there are two primary busy seasons – the holiday shopping season of November and December as well as Tax Time, though not in the ways you might expect. Viruses, malware and spyware have an ebb & flow. From years of experience, we have seen this pattern over and over again. This is not to say that viruses are not a concern all year round, they are, though there are times when you should make doubly sure that you are browsing safely.
So, why do virus programmers and hackers find these times particularly tempting? The reasons are great, though here are some of the top reasons to think about:
How many credit card numbers do you type in when shopping online?
How many times do check your bank balance?
How many new store accounts do you sign up for with your favorite password(s)?
How many emails with sales circulars and tracking info do you open?
How much comparison shopping/browsing do you do looking for a great deal?
Make a GREAT present! Our Gift Certicates are valid for 5 years for the service! Gift certificates are an original and appreciated gift for most occasions. When bought online, they are great as last minute gifts or when all traditional shops are closed. So, why notgive them a gift you can trust!
Avast! is one of the top rated Anti-Virus tools on the market! It has a very small code base (meaning it runs much faster than most other virus scanners on the market --- helping to NOT bog-down your system). We HIGHLY recommend this virus scanner, and the virus scanner that we use in our own home and offices. (we might try other virus scanners to test them, though, we have found every time that we prefer this one).
