Default Careful With Downloading Stuffs

As online earners, we definitely don't want any infected stuff in our PC. Anyway, here are some of my advice as a long-time *downloader*.

1. Careful from downloading anything from Warez site or those cracked applications or those that comes with keygens as a lot of them are infected. Believe me. I know.

There was one time I download FLStudio from a warez site. Little did I know that it was made to SPY and send information to the internet without me knowing. It means its infected with a spyware. My antivirus, Avira, didn't detect it. Instead, I found out about it when I installed ThreatFire.

2. In relation to number 1, have an antispyware software that provides real-time protection.

3. Download from legit sites like CNet, BrotherSoft, Softpedia, and Filehippo as the applications here are 100% clean. If you encounter a site you barely know, research first. Ask Google's search engine if its legit or not. I'm sure there's gonna be results.

4. Careful with downloading OPEN-SOURCE files from other sites. I found out from How-to-Geek (link here) that there are sites that offers FREE but INFECTED open-source files like this site here.

*WARNING! DO NOT DOWNLOAD FROM THESE SITE*

http://www.gofree.com/vlcmediaplayer.php
http://www.vlc.us.com

I only download open-source files from SourceForge or in the legit sites I listed above. If a site looks funny, leave it.

4. Always have an updated antivirus and make sure its real-time protection is turned on. Did you know that scanning a file through an antivirus and then it gave you a clean result, doesn't ensure you that its not infected?

In H4ck4tt4ck before, used to be a PTP forum, someone posted a way to infect a file that can't be detected unless you run it. That user even uploaded his file in those Online Scanning sites (the one that scans you file with all antiviruses) but the result was 100% CLEAN. Scary if you download similar files, huh?

I hope these helps.

thanks for this information. I often download from such site but on a public cafe. I'm sure i downloaded such things into their system without knowing. I would be more careful while downloading especially into my own personal computer.

@chinenye
If you download from an internet cafe, that pose more risk as usually, computers from net cafes are infected although so far, I think most of them doesnt directly pose a threat to our online-earning ventures.

Just make sure you have an updated antivirus in the unit your using to earn online.

No matter it is your personal PC or the internet café, it is always better to be careful while downloading stuffs. Check if it is from a legit source. If anyone prompts you to download certain things to earn money, beware, no one will give you free money. It is their mode of hacking or spamming your system. Keep an up to date antivirus, anti spyware application.

Yes, we must always be careful when we wanted to download any program from the internet. My friend's computer got hacked and she had to buy another new computer, since all the system in her computer had been malfunction after that downloading.

I think downloads is one of the easiest way to get virus from internet. It contains lots of spywares, if from a wrong site or if the software is infected. For my downloads, i usually use brothersoft or cnet.

Just do not go around those webpage with viruses and update your OS in time, plus a nice anti-virus software. Your computer can be good either!
