    Don’t open files you shouldn’t.

    Well, keeping your browsing safe, using maximum protection settings if you’re using windows, turn your firewall settings to maximum and keep any good security software at hand to be able to tackle malware, viruses or any form of security threat in time of need. I have used avast and norton and so far I have managed to route my way around these kind of problems. Also, keeping your OS and other software updated also lower the chances of being cracked or hacked.

    You might also want to consider use of Web Isolation software.

    @stewart8968 are you referring to VPN?

    Web isolation solutions are different from a VPN. With Web Isolation your users surf the web through another environment. They can see and interact with the pages but the code is not execute localy, reducing the risk of infection. Most of the software I have seen is a VM environment of some kind. When the user opens their browser a new environment is spun up. When they are done the environment is destroyed. If the website is compromised the VM environment is infected not the local machine. I have been testing a solution for a while and I like what I see.

    ditto all responses….setup a linux distro like Tails in a vm. If possible, purchase another low end computer for web research.

    There are a few commercially available products. Menlo, Spikes, Fireglass, Ntrepid, and Light point were a few I looked at.

    Remember to BACK UP your files regularly. Also download and install an advanced anti-malware program on the PC. Recently WannaCry Ransomware and Onion Ransomware attack users’ Windows PCs and ask for ransom. If the victims have no backups, it’s impossible for them to recover the encryted files unless they pay the ransom.
