The Dirty Half-dozen: Six Terms You Should Never Google

by Keith Greenhalf

 

Search Engines can be a great tool when browsing the Internet, but a recent study by Mcafee Corporation has found certain search terms can put your PC at great risk. Among the most dangerous:

 

free screensavers

 

download music

 

free games

 

singers

 

bearshare

 

kazaa

 

In many of these cases, up to 72 percent of the results returned by search engines contained web sites linking directly to malware (Spyware) downloads and put users at great risk for identity theft. (Source: wxyztv.com)

 

The study also suggested that sponsored search engine results are more likely to contain problem websites than non-sponsored results.

 

What can you do to Protect Yourself?

 

The best line of defense against risky web sites is to update your computer regularly by visiting the Windows Update Website, by using up to date firewall, antivirus and antispyware software.
