Twitter viruses, Facebook viruses and the host of other social networking attacks have reintroduced the world to why malicious code have been dubbed ‘viruses’. An infection starts with one person and spreads through online contact. Social media is thus akin to locking your PC in a room with 10,000’s of other PCs – one sneeze and you’re toast.
Don’t want some other PC’s Koobface, nor do you want self-imposed Facebook isolation for PC health reasons?
This week, Facebook and McAfee joined forces to offer social network virus protection. We think this is a good first step and overlaying Immunet Protect is an even better one. Immunet’s community focus plus the Collective Immunet protection feature is ideal for users on Facebook, and our side-by-side install support with McAfee means no hassle, no fuss. In particular, our footprint (less than 5 megabytes), speedy performance (instant, real-time threat evaluation) and community strength (50,000+ users collectively protecting each other) make a very effective antivirus booster-shot if you’re using McAfee already.
Of course, if you’re concerned about social network hygiene and aren’t interested in investing in yearly license renewals (McAfee on Facebook is only free for six months), well, get Immunet Protect today - it’s free and always will be.
