Increase Your Browser Security for Free (Part 1)

Browser Security and Why you should utilize it:

You might be asking yourself why you would need any additional browser security tools, especially if you already have an antivirus program. The most important reason to consider additional protection is that your antivirus program may not adequately protect you against exploits, tools that are purposefully built to take advantage of a vulnerability in your operating system or another program you use.

If the exploit becomes publicly known it will usually be patched by the developers. Before the exploit becomes public knowledge it increases your risk of malware infection and data theft. In order to take advantage of exploit patches it is important to keep your operating system and other programs updated. 

Fortunately for us, there is a free tool that can add an extra layer of security and help protect against exploits that are not yet public knowledge: MalwareBytes Anti Exploit Free guards against malicious behavior, rather than relying on a malware signature base, like standard antivirus programs use. This offers you better protection against unknown exploits. Download Anti Exploit Free at Bleeping Computer

If you've found my blog helpful please share it and leave me comments for questions or suggestions. I will be sharing another free tool to increase your data security tomorrow.
