Microsoft: IE8 barred 1 billion malware downloads! Internet Explorer 8, with the help of its SmartScreen Filter, has "blocked 1 billion attempts to download malware," Microsoft product manager James Pratt said in a blog post Friday. The SmartScreen Filter evaluates URLs and their associated servers. If the software recognizes a server as containing malicious content, it displays a warning, saying it's unsafe to browse to a respective site that could cause harm on the user's computer. The user is then given the option to continue to the page or go back to their home page without downloading any content. According to Microsoft, the SmartScreen filter continues to improve. In August 2009, it blocked 70 million malware download attempts. At the time, just 15 percent of Web users were surfing with Internet Explorer 8. Today, Microsoft reported, nearly 26 percent of the Web population is using IE8, and the company's SmartScreen filter is blocking "five times more malware month on month" compared to August 2009.Courtesy of cnet news Security

This security tip is so important to you that it wel NEVER change! Basic data protection can be summed up in one word, BACKUP! I apologize for yelling but this is by far the most important thing to do. All your equipment can be replaced with identical equipment and is even coverable by insurance. Your data is unique to you and in many cases can never be replaced if lost. So again I say, BACKUP! An effective backup is automatic, daily, and off site. A good backup works even if you forget about it and even if your location is destroyed because there is a copy of your data in another location.
