Why would my computer get hacked?

March 22, 2013

Here’s why.  A hacked pc or server can be used for multiple nefarious activities.  Would you even know if your server stuck back in the closet was serving spam before your internet service provider cut off your internet access?  Most business owners would not.  It happened to one of my clients who added an additional pc in a conference room cabinet and never told us or installed any security or windows updates.  Guess what- one Monday morning the DSL internet provider cut us off and we got blacklisted by an international spam filter.  It was a hard and expensive lesson!

Back Up -Be Sure

April 24, 2011

Make sure you have a back up.  You should have 3 copies of important files.  For example: have one file saved in my documents on the pc, have one copy on your usb thumb drive, and have an automatic back up to an internet based service.  Never trust your “digital eggs” to one basket.  Hard drives fail frequently.  USB drives sometimes stop working properly.  Your internet based service could be interrupted by outages.  Three copies should be enough to keep you from losing anything.

Here at Computer Guy we help people figure IT out.  Back up systems, computer repairs, software issues, virus and spyware removal, network and internet installation and support.  If you are a small business and need help Computer Guy Consulting can help you with all your small business IT support.  Give us a call for a free network evaluation.
