Virus and Trojan Horse Security Checklist

This chapter’s checklist isn’t too complex, but here it is:

  1. Are you backing up your system regularly?

  2. What virus protection package are you running?

  3. When did you last update your protection software?

  4. Do you get your downloaded software from reputable sources?

  5. Do you browse the Internet while logged on as Administrator?

  6. Do you use your AV scanner frequently?

  7. Do you use floppy disks to share information? If so, are they write-protected as much as possible?

  8. Do you have your AV software vendor’s Web site bookmarked so you can get updates and news regularly?
