What’s the problem with clicking on a bad link? Sometimes, even without knowing it, you will give the owners of that site access to your personal information or even your entire computer with all its data, passwords, and business-related content. Data means money. You and your information are big dollar signs to the bad guys.
Whether through emails, texts, websites
or even while having fun on Facebook,
hackers and other evil people
will try to get you to click on their destructive links.
But what about that link to some hilarious or heart-wrenching video your best friend just posted to Twitter? There are several services you can use to verify a link. Google Safe Browsing is a good place to start. Type in this URL http://google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site= followed by the site you want to check, such as google.com or an IP address. It will let you know if it has hosted malware in the past 90 days.
Trust Guard, the leader in website security and verification, monitors websites for over 75,000 vulnerabilities that are used by hackers to access personal and proprietary information.
