Use the Security section of this forum to show her some of the horror stories when it come to crooks hacking computers and stealing.

Any computer is no longer a toy when you do your banking or any other finanical transaction using it.

Where are these located , are there any that are really bad because i need to scare my parents and show them what could happen when they neglect security protocols.

Thanks my friend.

The net does have dangers, but with a good anti virus, malwarebytes and common snese, you will be ok. Listen, download Avast anti virus, Malwarebytes. Show the user how to make scans (some can be made on a pre set schedule) and just behave yourself by going to normally safe sites.. Download WOT (Web of Trust), it shows if a site is safe. That is all you need. Enjoy the net.
Horror stories are from those that do not follow simple rules.
In addition, download the free Macrium Reflect, once month make an image of your hard drive. If there are any major problems or fear of a hack, just install the image.

Everyone are the Forum wish you a Happy New Year

Imo, it takes a lot more than common sense these days to stay safe , you have to surf the net and assume everything's dangerous to be OK these days .

Many people need to learn the hard way of and often get repeatedly infected to finally get it , there is just way too much sophisticated malware out there.

My advice , don't download things unless your absolutely certain they are safe , this means scanning beforehand with things like Virustotal .

Use sandboxing when surfing the net , that prevents a lot of infections.

Stay the hell away from porn sites and file sharing sites , they are malware infested .

If she gets an email from any bank, tell her to delete it. If it's from her own bank, tell her to delete it and go to the branch herself with any questions.

I received an email from my bank and I went to the bank. Turns out it was a phishing attempt.
