Think Before You Click: How to Protect Yourself from Fake Antiviruses

Rogue antivirus software is malware that mimics authentic security software and which is distributed in through a variety of channels: emails, search engines, social media sites, and online advertising. So, here is how to avoid being infected with a fake antivirus: never open emails that include attachments from unknown and questionable senders; ensure that all your software is patched and updated regularly; and renew your software subscriptions annually (visit the vendor’s website as well to check for updates). Another good tip: keep a close eye on your bank/credit card accounts and be on the lookout for any unauthorized activity.
