How did I get infected with?
Demoney turns to the usual antics to invade. The old but gold means assist it in its sneaky attempts. Take for example, the most common one. Freeware. The program lurks behind the freeware, and uses it as a shield to conceal its presence. And, if you’re not vigilant enough to spot it, it slips by you unnoticed. And, you only become aware of the invasion after the pop-ups start flooding in. So, do yourself a favor, and make sure you are, in fact, cautious. Pay extra attention when dealing with freeware. Read the terms and conditions. Know what you say YES to. If you give into naivety and rely on luck, odds are, you’ll end up with a threat. Don’t choose carelessness over caution. Distraction, naivety, and haste lead to infections slithering into your PC. Vigilance and due diligence help to keep them out. Other common means of infiltration include spam emails and fake updates. As well as, corrupted sites or links. Always be on your guard, when allowing anything off the web into your PC.
