My 2017 Security config. I made backups always when I edit a file. I have always ready a pendrive containing Windows 10 if I need to format my system. I always scan downloaded files with VirusTotal and Hybrid Analysis
I prefer having the fastest browsing experience. I usually use Microsoft Edge. I don't use any ad-blocker for the reason mentioned before. I used Ccleaner free in the past but now I do no longer feel the need of it, and I dislike the fact that they added a startup item (even if it can be disabled)
I know about this risk, and I'm not sure if VoodooShield would be able to protect me. I have Always taken this risk and never encountered it, and have backups and a Windows 10 pendrive ready in caseThanks for sharing your config
I fully respect your choice to see and accept Ads, but you consider that some Ads may contain malicious code and cause redirects, and in this case you are victim of malversting.
I use browsers at default settings, so some of them should be activeThank you for sharing
Well you can at least Use inbuilt browser settings ( block pop ups / block flash / block auto download / phishing warning / etc .. Obviously js block would be like an adblocker )
Suppose, that an average user has downloaded 'I_am_not_malware.pdf.js' script, and executes it. What VoodooShield is going to do, if not in Locked mode? In Pilot mode it will check the file in VirusTotal, I think. But, maybe it can do more?What do you mean?
