Decorate Your Firefox with Personas, Beware of Malware this Easter

Here are a couple of Easter-related news that I thought go well hand in hand. The first one is that with Easter just a few days away, you may want to decorate your Firefox browser in honor of this holiday. A large selection of Personas is available on getpersonas.com. Many Easter-themed Personas are available in the Holiday section that you can access by clicking here.

Here are some of the personas you could get to decorate your Firefox browser this Easter.

Getting a Persona for your Firefox browser is a simple process since Personas are natively supported by Firefox 3.6 and Firefox 4.0. Simply place the mouse cursor over a Persona and the browser will immediately show you how that Persona looks like.

If you like the Persona, simply click the “Wear it” button. If you click the “Wear it” button and seconds later you realize your don’t like that Persona, there is an easy way out. The moment you get a Persona, Firefox displays a “A new theme has been installed” prompt – just like the ones you get when the browser blocks a popup. From the prompt you can click two buttons:
Undo – your previous Persona will be restored.
Manage themes – the Add-ons window will pop up; from it you can uninstall themes, personas, plugins, and extensions.

Moving on, you should be weary of unsolicited emails this Easter as they may pose a threat to your computer. McAfee is reporting that the bad guys are already using Easter as a ploy to spread their malware. They are sending out emails that claim to contain an Easter greeting and ask the users to download the greeting. The thing is that the users will not download a greeting, they will download malware instead.

McAfee explained that users should follow these tips to stay safe and secure:
  • Do not click links included in spam messages. If you get an Easter greeting and it seems to come from someone you know, get in touch with that someone and ask him if he sent you a greeting.
  • When you receive an email that looks like an e-card, look at the address it came from to see if it is a legitimate e-card site.
  • Keep an eye out for spelling errors, suspicious return addresses and other signs that the e-card is not legit.
  • Keep your operating system patched and up-to-date and use a security software solution to make sure your computer is protected from all sorts of security threats. McAfee recommends you use McAfee Total Protection, a complete security software suite that includes anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall protection.
