Script blockading

Hello.

 

Today, there was a tv show on NRK (Norwegian national broadcasting) about computer security.

 

Their internet page is: http://www.nrk.no/programmer/tv/brennpunkt/1.7847133

Google transelated it for you: http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=no&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=no&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http...

 

The show was recorded by Swedish TV, where some journalists and a hacker went from door to door and asked if they could hack peoples pc's, to show how easy it was.

 

So they gave 10 different points on how to protect your computer from hackers and malware.

 

The number 10 says as following:

 

"Bruk en skriptblokerer i nettleseren, for eksempel NoScript for nettleseren Firefox.

 

> "Use a script blocker in your web browser, for example NoScript for your Firefox."

 

Does F-Secure contain such stuff for us users, so we dont need to worry about that?

Hi,

we have *Browsing Protection* built in. It will block harmful websites or at least notify you if the site is suspicious.

Also, we have a technology called *Exploit Shield*. It is a proactive defense for your IE and FF browsers against exploits.

Search for *f-secure browsing protection* on a video website to watch demonstrations.

Re: Script blockading

Add-ons such as NoScript provide better protection, but need a LOT more user input and you need to be quite good with computers to understand all that stuff, or willing to learn.
