Assignment #96

Google released a study that said that 10% of Internet sites contain virus and-or malware that can be downloaded to your computer. The article is here.

At the same time, one of my friends wanted to know how to avoid malware when downloading programs like we do here sometimes.

Probably the easiest thing to do is get your downloads from CNET.

CNET does a good job of guarding the integrity of the programs accessible from their site.

So, if there’s some program you want, and you’re not sure about the site, take note of what the file is called and go on over to CNET to download it.
