Internet Browser Toolbars (Malware Threats)

Another way in which PC’s get infected with malware is by downloading toolbars for your Internet browsers. The main ones are fine such as Google and Yahoo, however there are a lot of freelance toolbars which contain malware. I have come accross a couple of these over the last few days, one was called ‘My Web Search’ which was packed with riskware and malware, and another one which was claiming tobe the ‘Bing Toolbar’ which included a trojan. The best advice I can give to anyone is to make sure that anything you are donloading is from a trusted source and not a spur of the moment decision.
