Anti-Virus Software and Phishing

One of the most important parts of your computer software is the Anti Virus protection.  This is your first line of defence from a variety of scammers and con artists, whose sole aim is to upload malicious software to   your device, with a view to harvesting your personal details for their own financial gain. 

Phishing is one such tactic used by online scammers and criminals who try to trick users into clicking onto websites or links that are not legitimate.  They attempt to fool the user into downloading malware, by clicking on a fraudulent link or by directing the user to a dodgy website.  

As users such as yourself become more aware of the risks, where even the most seasoned us of us can be fooled, the scammers in turn are increasingly trying more sophisticated ways to acquire your personal information.   The best way to beat the scammers is to have the most up to date Anti Viral Software Package you can.
