MacVoices #19189: Josh Long of Intego On Malware, Security, Privacy, and Safety Online

Josh Long, Chief Security Analyst for Intego, outlines some security practices that we should all be aware of…and not just using multiple passwords. Josh covers issues such as why you can have malware problems even if you don’t visit questionable web sites, why you might not want to use one of those “free” VPN services, and how to find out if your information has been compromised in any of those highly publicized hacks…and in some of the not-so-publicized hacks.
