Combat Spyware; Use Firewall Protection

Aug 17, 2007
How will you react when you come to know you are being watched? Will there be a chill in your spine? Quite possible!

But let's look at the same thing in a different way. If you have the premonition that someone is keeping an eye on you, there is a possibility that you can take steps to counter the attack. Am I right?

Now wear the same spectacles and watch the spyware through your angle of vision. What do you find out? Spyware was really troublesome when you were not that aware of its harmful intentions but now when you can clearly recognize that there is software called spyware that can mess up with your documents and befool you with wrong motifs, why don't you take prior safety measures?

Firewall is one such protective measures against virus and spyware that can damage your computer and the records stored in it.

Understand the utility

Keeping your computer system in an unprotected state is indeed a foolish thing to do. Don't you know that the hackers are all around to disrupt your operating system with different types of viruses and other software threats? In such a situation how can you be so callous to keep your computer in an unprotected condition?

You are also aware of Trojan Horses similar to the spyware that can seal any type of information from your personal operating system. The spyware can slow down your machine by making a niche in the computer's registry. Corrupting the files seems to be the birth right of every virus and spyware and Trojan horse don't stand behind in this using this opportunity.

Firewall provides every possible security to your computer system so that the hacker can't create nuisance in your system.

Firewall types

There are three security forms from the firewall. All the three types give service to specific users of the computer system and those dealing with the network. The reason for this difference is quite justifiable because a person operating from home in his own PC and a person connected through LAN has different avenues to fall into the spyware trouble. If you have to stop the spyware you will have to block all the routes of its entry.

Thus the firewall is divided into software firewalls, wireless routers and the hardware routers. You can guess from the names that the software firewalls are used for individual computers whereas the wireless routers are required to protect the wireless connection. Of course the hardware router has been devised in such a way that it gives safeguard to those networking system at home connected with the Internet.
