I read on Facebook that a new virus is being spread by a video link claiming to be a YouTube video of the Osama killing. I can’t claim it to be fact or fiction and will not click on it to find out, but will air on the side of precaution and leave it alone.
Viruses are a part of our computing life now and we all should use good judgement while on the Internet. My rule of thumb is that if it looks suspecious or too good to be true, stay away. The best practice is to buy good anti-virus software and update it regularly.
As we build better virus protection, the hackers are building better viruses. So, your virus protection (regardless of the brand or manufacturer) is only as good as it’s last update. In other words, the new anti-virus you just installed is out of date and needs to be updated to the latest version.
