Most people are familiar with the idea that in order to keep your computer safe from malware it is vitally important to keep antivirus software installed on it. By no means does this article say that doing that isn’t helpful, but a most of us don’t consider that there are backdoors to our computers that these antivirus programs miss. Flaws outdated software is exactly what the writers of malware look for when they try to infiltrate computers.
They use programs like Firefox, Adobe, or really any type of third party software you may have installed on your computer. I, like most people, rarely take the time to update all my programs and when prompted I would hit the “remind me later” option. However to truly be safe you have to constantly keep all your programs as up to date as possible.
With the importance of updating why do so many of us put it on the back burner? It is because we see it as a hassle that has no immediate effect on our experience with the software. When we are using our computers we don’t want to be bothered with menu screens asking us to upload this and if we approve of that. Not to mention the fact that attempting to manually update all the software on your computer would take you hours. Luckily there is software out there that can help do all the heavy clicking for you.
