While the above measures reduce the risk of your computer being compromised they do not eliminate the risk.
We recommend that you:
- Keep your firewall turned on.
- Don't put an unknown USB drive into your computer.
- Before you open an attachment or click a link in an email message, Facebook, Twitter, etc. confirm with the sender that the message is legitimate.
- Don't click links or buttons in a pop-up window that seems suspicious.
- Never give your password in response to a request in an email message. IT Services will never ask for this information via email.
