Running anti-virus for users - please

Postby marinetteman » Sat Sep 20, 2014 11:27 am

I would ask all users who post to do the courtesy of running an antivirus and a browser scanning tool.

I use Spybot from safer-networking http://www.safer-networking.org/ for browser safety and recommend Clam http://sourceforge.net/projects/clamav/ ... mav/win32/ or Norton. I run Kapersky on my Android. I run Clam and Norton on my PC.

ClamAV Win32 is free, and the version of Spybot I use is free. Linux admins almost always run ClamAV.

I HIGHLY recommend Spybot. Running a Antivirus is a necessity and is a courtesy to those sites you use.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would also ask that you use a separate password not used elsewhere for this site.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I run SiteLock on the website and other anti-malware software on our hosted site. This search also check the vulnerabilities lists.

Please do yourself the favor. Run antivirus software, protect other members.

Thanks Marinettejoe.
Thank you

On Running a site:

This site owner for a forum does attempt to secure the site, keep out unwanted registrants, keep malware and spam off the site.
