The Risks & Safe Downloading
Downloading & File Sharing
Inadvertently allowing viruses on to your computer - from both websites and peer-to-peer file-sharing programs.
Inadvertently installing adware that enables annoying popup advertisements.
Installing spyware that enables criminals to obtain private information for financial gain or identity theft.
Having your firewall breached, especially when using peer-to-peer file-sharing programs.
Downloading offensive/illegal material or viruses disguised as something else.
Breaching copyright. Although downloading free music, videos and software could be tempting, it is illegal to pirate material that is under copyright.
Ensure you have effective and updated antivirus/antispyware software and firewall running before you start downloading.
Download executable files (.exe) with extreme caution. These are files used by programs to run on your computer. However, they are also commonly used in viruses.
Use trusted download websites rather than peer-to-peer systems to obtain programs.
Be wary about downloading anything, as people can call their files anything they like. Something that appears to be a clip from a new sci-fi movie could in fact be hardcore porn or a virus-infected file.
Download music only from paid sites such as iTunes, Napster or trusted retailers’ websites.
Download only from reputable sites and sources
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is: It’s true online, too. Hackers capitalize on the fact that people want things immediately and for free by enticing them to download things such as new music or movies before anyone else. When in doubt, be wary of any site that offers downloads of free movies or anything else that shouldn’t be available to consumers for a few months or without a fee.
Scan files for viruses before downloading them
One step you should always take before you download anything is to scan it for viruses. The majority of anti-virus software lets you scan files for malicious intent if you right-click on the file you’re trying to download. Others will prompt you to open your software first, before it scans the file you just downloaded. If you download a file before you scanned for viruses, be sure not to open or run the file until you’ve made sure it’s clean.
Pay attention to the file extensions
If you downloaded a file with one of the above extensions from a website you trust or a known email contact, just be sure to scan the file first to ensure it doesn’t pose a threat.
Back up your device in multiple locations
On the off chance you end up downloading something malicious onto your device, Michael Fontana, Optionbox director, recommends backing up your device to protect your files, photos, and data. Our digital devices can hold a number of precious items—photos, phone numbers, and more—and certain types of viruses and malware can render your devices useless, making it impossible to access anything.
