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 an anti-virus for their personal computer.

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!
