The attacks on the internet are getting worse. I clicked on a link and it looked like a war zone. The website was attacking my computer and trying to access ports (ports are like doors and windows to a house) and drives and anything it could get access to. I use Norton and it was worth it’s weight is gold that day. In the 8 seconds of the attack (before I closed the web browser) Norton blocked 127 different attacks. It was amazing to watch, but if I would have had no protection, my computer would have been infected and I would have lost all of my data. No problem! Because if you BACK UP all of your files on DVD or an external hard drive, you could just reinstall all of your files after you restore your system. Take the time to write yourself a note and tape it to your computer that says: “BACK ME UP BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!”
