By James L. Hwang By James HwangA recent study conducted by the Center for Cyber Security Research at the University of Southern California (USC) suggests that users of malware-ridden websites should consider a number of additional steps to protect their computers from cybercriminals.
While the study was conducted by a private security firm and does not provide specific advice, it offers some suggestions on how to avoid the malware infection of your computers.
Among the most important things to do is:Use the following antivirus software:The researchers found that malware-infected websites performed significantly worse on several antivirus-based tests compared to websites that had not been infected with malware.
The researchers also found that when users of malicious websites were asked to verify the identity of a website, it took longer than usual to do so, resulting in a loss of valuable data.
The researchers say this was because when they used the malicious sites to verify their identity, malware-hosted websites had to manually check for the presence of a third party in the domain.
When users of the malicious websites verified their identity using the third-party verification software, malware infection on the malicious website was significantly slower than on the legitimate site.
The study also found a significant decrease in the rate of malware infection when users verified their identities using the free third-Party verification software.
The report also found an increase in malware infections when users used the third party verification software to verify that a website they had visited was a malicious website.
In addition, the researchers found a decrease in malware infection for the first time in their study when the website was used to validate the identity and content of a link.
The research also found increased rates of infection when the link is clicked, with the number of infections per click rising from 15.8 per cent to 20.3 per cent.
The authors believe that the increased rate of infection may be attributed to the fact that the link itself is being displayed for users to click, rather than the malware itself being displayed on the screen.
The authors also found some instances of malware infected by third-parties to display malicious content, such as malicious pop-ups, in a browser extension that was not installed by the user.
However, the study did not show any evidence of a difference in malware-induced infections when a malicious link is displayed or when users are prompted to click on it.
The report also said that the number and severity of malware infections declined significantly when users were given the option to disable their browser extension and to check if their browser was infected with the malware.
When the authors disabled the extension and were presented with the results of the malware-analysis software, they found that the percentage of malware detected remained high at 76 per cent, but the percentage infected remained much lower.
The findings were published in the Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law.
