My company uses McAfee ASAP (anti-virus) for security against viruses. It runs continuously and monitors all internet traffic. Since Friday, the anti-virus software was activated just after I entered a couple of websites. One seemed to be a 'legitimate' technical site, while the other was site with information on music and song lyrics. I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience. It seems that some adware now contains coding similar to that contained in viruses or trojans. The objective seems to be the same - get information from one's computer - not just one's internet activity. I have a firewall. I have set the browser privacy to Medium High and set many Security features to prompt for action so as to prevent automatic downloads. I will probably increase security further.
