The web browser is a complex piece of software. It is able to browse web pages images, videos, and forms. It was originally designed to display text documents, it now handle all the various media available on the Internet. This makes it more difficult for security personnel as it has many “weak areas” that attackers could exploit.
If you’re using the default program that is preloaded on your computer or a different browser you’ve downloaded, it’s vital to verify that your security settings are at the highest level possible. This will reduce the chance of malware being able to sneak beyond your security settings and install onto your system. It’s a good idea also to use the browser with the account that is limited and does not have administrator rights. So, even when malware manages to get past the security settings of your browser, it won’t be able alter your system as easily.
