Some security experts have begun to view anti-virus software and user-facing firewalls as toys to make people feel better.
What can you do about this shocking shift in the security field? Regardless of the experts' opinion on security software, all concur that the best protection is good practice. That means that you must learn to use safe software and avoid scams (See also: Scammer Payback). Don't fall for freeware (that isn't free as in freedom) and fake download buttons which can sometimes install spyware. Using public-licensed software from official sources is one of the best ways to choose safe software unless you buy it. Hierosoft LCC intends to provide ways to install such free software easily, and to become a source of free and paid software where you pay once, not forever with your privacy.
