Chromebooks are supposed to come with sufficient, built-in security. But is that really true? Can you use a Chromebook without having to think twice about general cybersecurity and anti-malware protection in particular? Or do you need Chromebook antivirus? Let’s have a look first at which security features are pre-packed in ChromeOS.
The total number of security events have, however, increased. The company analysed 263,109 events from data obtained from its 10 CyberSOCs and 16 SOCs.

Facebook voice message virus – a malicious campaign that can relate in the installation of a Trojan horse if the misleading voice message is played by the victim…

Norton Power Eraser was recently updated and I thought I would at least post some information on this security application.

“What’s On My PC“
Malwarebytes AdwCleaner is one of those security software options (that is FREE and Portable) that you want to remember or keep on your PC (or flash drive) in the event your computer is running noticeably slow; or strange messages start showing up; or you notice your browser’s homepage has mysteriously changed. Typically when these signs begin to appear it is a sign that a variant of malware may be present.
Here at “What’s On My PC” I run Malwarebytes AdwCleaner on a regular basis, for peace of mind. Keep in mind (be careful) this type of software is designed to aggressively pick out items that it knows to be bad or believes to be bad that may be compromising your computer.
Following a scan you are given option to delete those items and once that decision is made, the computer will typically reboot. I have included this software in my tech toolbox when assisting others and have had great success in restoring a PC to normal operation. Just know what you are deleting (getting rid of) in the end.
