True or False: One visit to a site can infect your machine?

Too TRUE.

This is something that people tend to not believe – don’t want to believe – it’s just too scary.  You can have malicious code infect your computer just by visiting a web site.  When conditions are right (stale operating system and low browser security settings) it is all too possible.

What I like about the Watch Guard series is the way it is explained.  It is not too techy, not too dumbed down, and it is shown in real time.

Thank you to my Honeybear for showing me these – and for fueling my curiosity.
