Security software is essential for any computer. It's the first thing I recommend installing on any new system. You can download free security software here.

Most security software has a weakness, though. It can only stop viruses and other threats once they're on your system and trying to run.

It's like bailing out the boat before trying to patch the leak -- it doesn't work very well.

That's why it's so important to avoid malicious email links and attachments, and be suspicious of shady downloads. You don't want any viruses getting on your system in the first place.

Keeping viruses off your computer can be a bigger problem than you think, because lately hackers have been targeting "exploits." These are weaknesses in legitimate software that let hackers slip a virus on your system.

This is the danger behind watering hole attacks that can hit you even on popular websites.

You remember the fiasco with Java last year - there were exploits every other week. A more recent exploit was a Flash vulnerability that went unfixed for days. Unfortunately, no security software deals with this - you just have to wait for an update to close the hole.

Until now.
