No, not really. Anti-Virus software just can’t go as fast as malware makers. We’re never completely protected. I’m even getting worried, and I use a Mac. I can name many new Mac threats in the past two years.

OSX.Leap.A
OSX.Klog.A
PokerStealer
OSX.RSPlug.A
OSX.Macarena
OSX.PPC!Macarena
OSX.Inqtana.A
OSX.Inqtana.B
OSX.Inqtana.C
OSX.Saprilt.A-B-C
OSX.Weapox.A
ARDagent Vulnerability
Macsweeper/iMunazator

And now some Windows threats (note that I’m only naming really big and bad ones):

Ugh, I can’t remember anymore. There’s just so many of them! Will post again later when I remember more. Also, these may or may not be the correct spellings of the trojans/viruses/backdoors.

Protection?

No even close.

It’s not of much use if people remember to install an antivirus-program, and then forget the rest of the system. Almost every second surfer use a browser not completely updated. Plus other programs may also be unpatched. The old proverbial ‘If it works, don’t fix it’ does not make sense here.

Old versions and unpatched systems may be insecure. Here’s a free tool to check if your software is up to date: http://secunia.com/software_inspector/

It all depends

Well it’s true there are a lot of threats, but if you’ know how to protect yourself. you’ll be fine.

If you use the following, it’s almost impossible to get a virus or spyware to any major extent:
Firefox
Mac
Wot
Bullguard, or any other really good antivirus/antispyware/firewall
Spydoctor
Threatfire
For email use Gmail
And when searching, use google or yahoo.
If you need more than that, you can also use noscript

Let me explain my reasoning for saying this, before you start saying I’m completely wrong:
Firefox 3: Firefox is one of the most secure browsers you can get. It scans downloads, is careful about what it allows sites to do, and more. For more security, you can get add-ons too, and with Firefox 3, it tells you about known sites that are unsafe, so you aren’t able to access them unless you REALLY want to.

Mac OR linux:Yes macs and linux can get viruses too, but they are much more secure, and are more efficient at keeping updated software than windows. The thing is however, some of the other security software I’m suggesting later is only for windows, however there is lots out for macs and linux as well. Windows is okay, if you’re careful about what you use and do on the internet.

Wot: Well, we all know that wot is the greatest thing since sliced bread so. It helps the most.

Bullguard or other good antivirus/antispyware/firewall software: Bullguard’s firewall is very good at blocking incoming threats. And with automatic scans every day or so, it can help improve your safety a lot. Pctools’ firewall, antivirus, and spywaredoctor are also very good.

Threatfire: Threatfire is another thing by PCtools, that is a firewall, that works with other firewalls. It is a backup. It is programmed to know not to block firewalls, however it blocks things that seem like a threat, instead of only catching viruses that are known. For example, even if it doesn’t know the exact type of virus, if a spyware program is secretly stealing everything you type, threatfire will ask, “(filename) could be a dangerous application. What would like to do?
Kill the process, or mark it as safe.

Gmail: Gmail scans all attachments, is very good at distinguishing spam, and encrypts your connection. It is probably the best email provider ever.

Google or Yahoo: Both of these search engines now say in search results: This site could be dangerous, to many sites which are dangerous. Yes, it’s true, many sites are shown, but it least helps. And between that, firefox, and wot, it makes a difference.

Noscript: This helps a lot, but it can get kind of annoying.

If you know to use all of that, you pretty much can’t get infected.
