December 2014 OUCH! Newsletter

The December OUCH! Newsletter is out, and this month they're taking a close look Antivirus software.  What is it? What does it do? Do we really need it?  (Hint:  YES, we really ought to have antivirus on our computers.)

The newsletter speaks about making sure your Antivirus software subscription is up to date.  Paid subscriptions have the benefit of putting the vendor on the hook for support, but there are some decent no-cost Antivirus solutions.  I cover these in the Basic Precautions resource page (left hand column).

For OUCH! archives or to sign up to receive the newsletter directly to your email, see the SANS Institute's newsletters page (OUCH! is at the bottom).
