It’s a dangerous world out there. While we would like to believe that humans are inherently good, some people out there like to make mischief. And frankly, some things out there that make mischief are not human. There are malicious software on the prowl: viruses, trojan horses, worms, and the like. They are ready to pounce on your computer (or other gadgets) any chance they get. With everything connected to the Internet these days, things are just so easy for your system to get fried with one wrong move.
Prevention is the best cure, but when an attack is already there, you also need to know how to fight back. So you need a good combination of preventive measures and defensive countermeasures.
Fortunately, there are the good guys, and the authors of the IT Security Blog are among them. The IT Security Blog regularly features tips and tutorials on how to secure your system from attacks, and how to clean up your system when malware is already present. The blog also has regular news and updates about the security situation of our online world.
