As tech upgrades, so do viruses

Cyber securityTechnology is always on the up and up – from software to hardware and even the ways in which we access the internet and entertain ourselves, the digital and technological landscape is ever-changing.  When it comes to computing, however, with the advancing tide of technology comes new threats in the form of viruses, adware and malware.  These programs can cause untold chaos for even the most experienced of users, meaning that it is always important to keep a close eye on your PC’s performance should you opt to upgrade your computer hardware or even your programs.

How do viruses keep up

Viruses, Trojans and malware are getting smarter – and this is entirely by design.  Virus programmers are ensuring that they keep ahead of the technology curve by updating their code to be able to infiltrate even the newest of systems and the most updated of programs.  This is why your anti-virus software or firewall will need to be updated frequently – virus and malware definitions alter and change frequently, meaning that safety providers need to be constantly vigilant for the latest threats and potential attacks.  It’s always important to make sure that your system has the necessary protection it needs before you venture online – otherwise, regardless of the sites you visit, you could be leaving yourself open to a particularly nasty attack.  Older systems in particular are more at risk than ever – meaning that it is a great idea to consider evaluating your virus and malware protection every so often.

What can be done to stay safe

A great way to protect against attacks of this nature is to allow a specialist to take a closer look at your system.  If you’re concerned about the threat of malware, if you host or use particularly sensitive information or are running an older system and interface, it may be time for a professional to take a closer look at your PC.  Here at Tech CPR, we offer a dedicated virus and malware removal service for anyone affected by particularly nasty specimens – while antivirus programs can do so much in terms of protecting you and preventing problems from occurring, one of the best ways to combat the active attack of malware is to ask a specialist to remove the source of the problem outright.

But how do you know if you need our help?  If you’re experiencing constant slowdowns, strange program behaviour or even files or documents going awry or missing altogether, it may be time to get in touch.  Our team will be able to provide specialist, dedicated care in the removal of all malware and viruses, no matter whether you are running a system which is two months old or two years old.  As technology marches on, so do the threats our systems face.  Sadly, it’s unlikely that malware will ever truly go away – it’s big business for many people – meaning that the best thing to do is to get yourself protected and to consult one of our specialist for a thorough clean and removal of anything nasty.
