Bitdefender total security 2018 not updating
Yes, there are verified malware programs out there for both the Macintosh and for Linux. Equally importantly, if you don't at least run an antivirus program, you run the risk of passing a virus on to your Windows friends (assuming any of them actually talk to you). So I've split the Tango into parts - Windows, Linux, the Macintosh, etc. But you get to all of them by that same "Let's Dance! Original release date: January 04, 2018 | Last revised: January 31, 2018 CPU hardware implementations On January 3, 2018, the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) became aware of a set of security vulnerabilities—known as Meltdown and Spectre—that affect modern computer processors.
These vulnerabilities can be exploited to steal sensitive data present in a computer systems' memory.
The name derives from "speculative execution"—an optimization method a computer system performs to check whether it will work to prevent a delay when actually executed.
The simple act of getting on the Internet and downloading email or going to a Web page can expose your computer to malicious crackers who would love to take over your machine for their own use. Originally, the Security Tango was mostly for Windows-based computers.
To dance the Security Tango, click the Let's Dance link up above. I'm sure that those of you running Linux or a Macintosh used to laugh yourselves sick at all the machinations that your Windows-using friends had to go through to keep themselves safe. As Linux and the Mac have become more popular, we've see more viruses for them.
The Security Tango is my name for the dance you have to do every time you want to assure yourself that your computer is free of viruses, spyware, keystroke loggers, backdoors, trojans, and other forms of malware (click the Definitions button in the menu to see what all those things mean).
It's something you need to do regularly and often - daily is too often!
