April Increases Spyware and Malware Infections

SUPERAntiSpyware Assists Users in Removing April Fool's Day Spyware and Malware Threats

Each year, the first week of April (coinciding with "April Fool's Day") brings an increase in spyware and malware infections. It's become something of an annual tradition that causes havoc for computer users, lost productivity, and overall inconvenience. Not to mention potentially costing thousands of dollars in repairs.

We're working hard to prepare for this onslaught and we're up for the challenge. It makes sense, however, to remind computer users to be extra vigilant during this period of increased spyware activity:

  • Don't open emails, files or attachments from people you don't know.
  • Be extra cautious opening emails, files or attachments from people you do know.
  • Don't be fooled by "scareware" tactics. Know what software you are using, and familiarize yourself with how it delivers warnings and alerts.
  • If you're considering giving your social networking activities a break, now might be a good time. No one will miss you if you take a week off.
  • Stay away from websites that you haven't visited before. Think before you click!

Run multiple layers of security software. There are many free and effective solutions that will co-exist well with each other. Remember, a single solution may not be enough, especially during this period of increased spyware activity.
