Just wondering how you guys handle the internet security issues (How to protect your computer from unwanted viruses, worm, Trojan, malicious-ware).
No one want his/her computer being hijacked and become one member of the botnet unless it is for experiment/investigation.
I know there are website talking about this topic, but a big question in my mind is:
"Will a good Internet Security Suite able to give me 100% protection?
That means after I install the Security Suite into my Windows, I can be sure that my Windows PC will never be hijack by the hacker to become a botnet machine? (assume i don't simply click those link that come into my email mailbox)"
Although a firewall can provide some protection, but most of us home user will just use a basic firewall that come with the router - with default setting.
Will an enterprise class firewall able to give me higher degree of protection? (assume i just use the default setting of the firewall....not everyone of us know how to configure a firewall)
Often read in some website about "Why Windows so prone to virus attacks"
Although this question has nothing to do with running Seti@home.
But because of the worrying of the viruses/malicious-ware/botnet infection, I don't connect my Windows laptop to internet and thus unable to run Seti@home.
While for the other 6 PCs that installed with Solaris and Fedora, I have no worry to connect them to internet and run Seti@home.
