A Hacker's Guide To Being Cyber Safe (Article Link)

Post by Jim_Fogle » Thu Mar 29, 2018 12:09 pm

A little off topic but with so many using their computers for music production I felt some may appreciate the advice the web article has to offer.

Also, here is a link to a second article concerning protecting your computer from ransomware:

How do I know clicking these links won't download ransomware onto my computer?

;)

I'm reminded of the reboot of Battlestar Galactica (highly recommended if you didn't watch it) where Captain Adama's solution is to not network the computers on his spaceship. Overkill? Watch the first season before you make up your mind.
