You Got Jacked! Now What?

Clickjacking attacks can come from out of nowhere. You use good browsing habits and you only provide information to reliable sites, but some times the cybercriminals are a step ahead of you.

Expert clickjackers can install malware without your knowledge. You think that you’ve just clicked on a dead link, but nefarious software begins operating in the background.

No matter what you do, you’re not completely protected. This makes it important to run antivirus software that will identify the most current malware and delete it before it has a chance to cause any damage.

Free Antivirus Software

Personally, I like free antivirus software. There are plenty of reliable versions out there that update frequently. Still, you can’t expect a single program to catch every bit of malware, so I suggest using at least two antivirus programs to make sure that your system is clean.

Avira AntiVir Personal has proven itself to me time and time again. I run it daily to make sure that my computer hasn’t picked up any nasty viruses. I spend a lot of time online, so you might not need to run your antivirus software as often. I would still recommend a quick hard disk scan every time that you surf for more than an hour.

The editors at CNET have given Avira AntiVir Personal a five-star rating. Users think that it’s more of a 3.5 star program. A full five stars is hard to reach, but I have to agree with the CNET editors on this one. Avira gets the job done reliably.

The CNET editors also give Norton Antivirus 2010 17.0 a five-star rating. This version of Norton Antivirus performs well, but I don’t agree that it deserves a perfect score. The most common complaint about Norton Antivirus is that it uses up too much of a computer’s resources, thus resulting in a slow computer. Quite frankly, avoiding a slow computer is one of the reasons that I use antivirus software.

Plus Norton Antivirus is only free for 30 days. After that, you have to subscribe. I think that there are plenty of free versions out there that work better.

Striking Back at Clickjacking Attacks

There are plenty of free antivirus software options available for download. Read several reviews, though, before you choose one. Not all of them are as reliable as others, and some are almost as hard to get rid of as the viruses that you contract through clickjacking attacks.
