Do I really need an anti-virus? I get asked this question all the time.
People understand why businesses insist on having an anti-virus, but they don’t understand why they as individuals need to purchase it for their personal computer. Why would anyone be interested in hacking or harming my computer?
There are approximately 30,000 websites hacked every day. Most of these hackers play simple pranks like hiding a joke on the website or rearranging menu items, often kids practising their skills. Some hackers do have very malicious intentions like stealing user data or credit card numbers.
Yes, anti-virus is important. Making sure your antivirus is up to date is equally important!
