Ever tried coding in a basic Linux-based operating system and failed? There is a solution for all these problems all you need to do is to research well online and to have the patience to study it.
Over the years, networking had grown in a manifold proportion and also have the risks accompanied with them. Let’s try taking a new perspective in finding out how to avoid these security lapses for your system.
The most sought after solution for protection against security threats is installing an antivirus and web shield. These methods are conventional and so has lots of open windows for hackers to seep through. With widespread advancements in server technology and speed, it’s even more difficult for these predefined antivirus software to defend in full capacity. Pen testing and WAP development can only find solutions for existing security risks only, the world of networking is ever expanding with more and more people trying to get information from one another.
To secure your system from the impending dangers of network phishing and malware attacks you should keep in mind certain things:
#1. Try considering your system as a living organism, understand that anything vulnerable to human beings in the biotic atmosphere acts in the same way in the networking atmosphere. So whenever your computer starts heating up it has a fever and hence you can understand that the immunity that is the antivirus is struggling to fight something, and, of course, you should be there as a doctor to provide enough supplementing medication to cure the illness. By doing enough online research and consulting experts to analyze what is wrong with your system, without performing a surgery that is formatting the whole hard drive.
#2. Or let’s take a scenario where in your system is taking a lot of time to wake up from sleep, if this happens regularly to a person you will naturally understand there is something wrong with his lifestyle that is slowing him down. Same as that you should also check your systems start up functions and what all luxury bad apps are there which is slowing it down. In such a way, you can understand that computer security is as much as important as protecting yourself from diseases.
Recently Linux-based operating systems are deemed to be very effective against viruses and malware, one reason for this is that most of the hackers choose easy targets, most of whom uses Microsoft or Apple based operating systems. Therefore, the viruses are written in a way it can access the files in a windows or apple system this is where Linux holds an upper hand. And that is the most key point in security based software need to take care of that the idea of OS based attacks can only be defended using redefined tactics. Good luck.
