A problem with my PC - spreading fishing kits
« on: April 29, 2019, 09:05:53 AM »
Two days ago I received an email suggesting to install the latest version of MS Outlook with new Plugins. I use this app every day so I agreed. Th program has been updated but my friends started calling me. They tell about receiving strange mails from me asking them to download something. I've searched in Google and found a clear understandable article about fishing: https://www.safetydetective.com/blog/what-is-phishing-and-how-to-protect-against-it/ I think everyone should read it to be sure about internet security. But I still don't know what antivirus is the best for free now. Can someone share his opinion?

Malwarebytes is a good optionas it provides robust protection against phishing. It can detect fraudulent sites and stop you from opening them, even if you're convinced they're legitimate. Much better option than Avast when we eal with such threats. Though you can see the comparison between avast and malwarebytes and get to know the better idea.
