Your web browser is under attack. Aside from simply tricking you into downloading and running malicious software, attackers mainly target flaws in your browser and its plug-ins to compromise your PC.
Use these tips to secure your web browser from attackers, whether they’re using malvertising attacks, compromising websites, or just directing you to malicious websites they’ve created.
Keep Your Browser Updated
Use a current web browser and keep automatic updates enabled. Don’t use an outdated web browser like Apple’s Safari for Windows or old versions of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.
Use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox and leave automatic updates enabled, use a current version of Internet Explorer on a modern version of Windows and install Windows updates, or use Microsoft Edge on Windows 10.
