HackerProof: Your Guide to PC Security, from MakeUseOf, is an easy to read ebook with 53 of condensed pages about everything you need to know about PC security. This free ebook comes in a form of pdf and you can get it only by submitting minimum info in the link above.

In those 53 pages you will learn about:

  • a short history of computer viruses

  • why backups are important

For a while I worked as a freelance PC troubleshooter and I had even a newspaper ad. Things were’n as smooth as I likes, but during that time I earned some cash and learned a lot of things about PC issues and about the psychology of the “common” computer user.

From darn weak passwords to the easy traps for the gullible ones under the form of a big green “Download Bow” button, I got the chance to see that most of the computer users do not take security seriously. Worst part was that they had an internet connection and no antivirus installed. Now, what do you say about that?

You would guess that all have the basics covered, but that isn’t the case. I believe that most of my readers are geeks and tech savy guys and galls, but this small ebook might very well help others. Having a clean and secure computer is a not a God given right. You must earn it, or, as I always reminded them, “you must simply NOT do the things we, PC guys, tell you to NOT do”.

Click on the image from below (partner link) to get this awesome short pc security ebook and enjoy a more secure computer. Why “more”? Leave a comment and I’ll write a longer answer. For now I can say that we cannot ever have 100% protection (see Stuxnet, Staatstrojan, and others). Enjoy HackerProof: Your Guide to PC Security, from MakeUseOf!
