What do I have to answer?
You must answer the following two questions. (1) What are my browsing habits like? When you answer this question, it will help us determine whether you are a low, medium or high risk internet user. (with high doing torrents, etc). (2) What is my computer security set-up? This question is pretty self explanatory.
How must the questions be layed out?
(1) What are my browsing habits like? (State your answer next to or below the question mark);
(2) What is my computer security set-up? (State your answer next to or below the question mark).
(1) What are my browsing habits like? I use the computer on an often basis. I do not use torrent programs, but I often open websites that I have never been on before. I download software often, sometimes they have little reputation. I consider my browsing activity to be at medium risk.
(2) What is my computer security set-up? Norton360, 5.0 as my main antivirus program. I also have Malwarebytes (on-demand) installed that is also used on a regular basis. In addition to the above, I have portable back-up programs. TDSSKiller, SuperAntiSpyware & Comodo Cleaning Essentials to name a few.
I have deployed EMET and I also have KeyScrambler installed. In the browser I have tweaked several (about:config) options and installed the following extensions: AdBlock Plus, BetterPrivacy, WoT and HTTPS Everywhere. I also have every plug-in disabled.
I have many more security features, but they will be talked about in future blog articles.
So lets here everyone else's security set-ups!
