Recently we mentioned a FREE program anyone can use to protect your computer from a Ransomware infection, such as the recenet "WannaCry" bug making it's way around the globe. We realize several of you may not have pen and paper handy while listening (especially if enjoying us in your vehicle), so here is the info we shared:
The website and program we were referring to is “CryptoPrevent”, which is available as a free program at https://www.foolishit.com/cryptoprevent-malware-prevention/ It is an excellent program to automatically set your computer settings in a way preventing most ransomware from being successful. I personally use this program for my family computers, and have even implemented the commercial version at work for an added layer of protection.
Please note, however, that any security software is merely a speedbump, so still exercise caution when dealing with email and web traffic. If something doesn’t feel right, click away!
Please feel free to share this information with others, as we would love to help keep your friends and family safe as well!
Thank you for listening… “see” y'all Wednesday!
