THE DAILY TIP

Stay safe online and keep your software up-to-date. This is especially true for things like Windows, security software and your browser. Malware often takes advantage of exploits in these programs and while the publishers that make these programs are usually quick to fix them, those fixes only work if they have been installed.

It's also important to avoid taking actions that could put your computer at risk. These include opening unsolicited email attachments, visiting unknown sites or downloading software from untrustworthy websites or peer-to-peer file transfer networks.

To ensure that your family understands the risks, these procedures should be taught to everyone, and children should have their Internet use monitored to ensure they aren't visiting suspect websites or downloading random or adware programs.
