Ran­somware Safety

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - BUSI­NESS -

A decade-old form of ma­li­cious soft­ware known as ran­somware has been mak­ing head­lines af­ter cy­ber­crim­i­nals hi­jacked hun­dreds of thou­sands of com­put­ers world­wide. To keep your com­puter safe, se­cu­rity ex­perts rec­om­mend the fol­low­ing: up­date your soft­ware reg­u­larly, make sure your Win­dows ma­chine has the lat­est se­cu­rity en­hance­ments, in­stall an­tivirus soft­ware, be wary of sus­pi­cious pop-ups and emails, and cre­ate a backup of your data.
