Happy Easter Everyone

I’m just about to walk out the door and have myself a merry little Easter holiday. I will be back on the Tuesday, the 26th of April if you were wondering. Before I left I wanted to wish all FindMySoft visitors a very happy Easter! Hope you will have as much fun as I will.

You can count on the fact that I will be having plenty of fun during this Easter holiday. Not only because it’s the Easter, but because I will be celebrating by name day on the 23rd and my bday on the 24th. The 23rd of April is St George’s Day, and my name is George – so I will celebrate. My birthday is on the 24th, so I will celebrate again – or perhaps continue from the previous day.

As is leave, security is on my mind: pay attention to Easter-related scams. According to McAfee, malicious spam messages are making the rounds, inviting users to download a phony Easter card. The users who fall for this will not download an card, they will download malware on their computers. McAfee said you should stick to the following guidelines 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.

So stay safe, and have a happy Easter. If you don’t celebrate Easter, then have a merry weekend. I’ll drink a few to your health.
