    The Ultimate Security Softwares for Black Hatters

    These days, surfing the web and using the internet can be a danger for anyone of us, but for us black hatters, it can be a lot more dangerous. You may download some softwares, open some mails that can ruin you (believe me). You may get infected with some of the most dangerous viruses and get your accounts hacked. So therefore, ony of my highest priorities on my computer is my security softwares and how well my computer is orginized.

    I have had a lot of experiences with security softwares and have been in touch with several "proes" which are all involved in security softwares, for example one of microsofts antivirus guys here in my country. Among my road, I have tested most of the softwares out there and had my own conclusion, therefore I thought I could contribute by listing some of the softwares I use which are all FREE security softwares that are highly recommended and considered the best of their kind.

    The topics each software will go under are the following:
    • Antivirus
    • Firewall
    • Spyware Remover
    • Diagnostic Software


    Antivirus
    As mentioned earlier, all of the softwares are free provided by their companies. Now many of you think that free softwares are useless and that you should pay high amounts to get the best ones but that's not true. In fact, out of all the software security tests there are out there, the free softwares rank better than the others. Even if you talk to the dell support and ask them what antivirus they recommend, most of them will mention either AVG or Avast which are free ones.

    AVG is the most popular security software in the world and has around 286million downloads and most take it as the best antivirus. I have tested it and tested several others (also paid ones) and my conclusion is that Avast is the best antivirus out there. Compare to AVG, they both have very good scanners and find most of the trojans out there, but there is a big difference between them. AVG will slow down your computer a lot compare to Avast and as a Black Hatter, you need to have a fast computer for doing your "business". So for an Antivirus, I highly recommend Avast which can be downloaded from the link below.

    Firewall
    Firewalls are as much importance as Antivirus as they are the one which blocks attempt from Internet and block suspisious files to reach internet. Firewalls are not mentioned often and I think it's a huge lack there. Windows has it's on built in firewall but that's just crap and will not do much. There is one firewall that I always will use which has outranked every other firewall ever used (even the paid ones) and that is Comodo Firewall. It has a nice interface and has some great options and setting which you can adjust for yourself. For the first week, it can be quite annoying as it will ask permission for everything that will connect to the internet but after that, you are set to go and can feel secure. I highly recommend Comodo Firewall but if you need an option, then zone alarm works too :)

    Spyware Remover
    I know you may think, well I have already an Antivirus, why do I need a Spyware Remover. Well it's just an extra procation that I think everyone should take. There are after all several viruses that can't always be detected by antiviruses and then a spyware remover comes in handy. In fact you should have several installed on your computer. You don't to have them open and running as a Antivirus but you should in fact remove them from autostart softwares as they may slow you down. You should only have them to use them as scanning softwares every week to be on the right side :) The best one out there even recommended by microsoft virus support is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware which have been on my computer for several years now and helped me a lot :) Other usefull extra spyware addons are :
    • Windows Defender
    • SuperAntiSpyware

    Download Link for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

    Diagnostic Software
    I guess you are probably wondering "What the hell is a diagnostic software?". Well it's simply a software which will scan your computer and give you a diagnostic of how well your computer "feels" and what you can do to make it feel better. I know a lot of you use CCleaner for doing this kind of works and yeah, it's a good program and it will give your computer the boost it needs. But my personer favourite is Advanced SystemCare. It has one of the most "coolest" interfaces and it's a lot easy to work with. You can adjust a lot of setting or if you want to do it fast, you just click on the "Care" button and it will do it all for you. I can guarantee you that it will boost up your computer and you will notice a difference if using it correctly :) Also make sure to remove it as an autostart software as it's not needed. Just make sure to "Care" your computer at least once a week.

    Code:

    If you have all these softwares installed, I can assure you a better and safer online experience :)
    I know these softwares are all for free and that I have not shared a desiring program which I have found the crack for, but I find these quite usefull and I hope that you do too :)

    Of course you can post your own recommendation of softwares so other Black Hatters can see what others are using :)

    Best regards

    Comodo has worked very fine with me :) They have also a good community where you can get help.

    Zone alarm is the second option and that jewish thing sounds like bs in my opinion. If that were true, I think it would have been bigger news as it's used by a lot of people out there.
