Tom's Hardware: "How does one fight cybercrime? With physical home security, we have locks and alarm systems and sometimes, in the most extreme cases, weapons for self-defense. But in the online world, we have only two options: completely unplug or invest in prudent, effective anti-malware products.
Few would agree that unplugging is an acceptable answer. To stretch the home security analogy, abandoning the Internet would be like living in a brick house with no doors or windows. The far more palatable path is to use anti-malware. As we’ll see, this class of product performs several essential functions, all of which boil down to one common task: keeping your computing devices protected against any and all malicious digital threats."
