If you are reading this, you have fallen victim of what is known as "clickbait". Articles with titles that leave you wanting to know more when it could have been clearly stated are intended to invoke a reaction to get you to "click to read more".

Be mindful of what you are reading to help you avoid falling pray to "clickbait" articles or quizzes as they may lead to malicious websites looking to infect your computer with malware or worse ransomeware.

If you are unfamiliar with these terms here is a quick definition.

Malware is software that is installed onto your computer without your permission that searches for information on your computer and sends it back to the creator of the software. This software can also cause pop-up windows to appear constantly with ads to more websites including warnings that your computer is infected and that you must "click here" to clean.

Ransomeware is software that is installed onto your computer without your permission that begins to encrypt (the process of converting information or data into a code to prevent unauthorized access) and demand you pay ridiculous sums of money to remove the encryption of your personal files.

Knowing is half the battle. Please share this information with anyone you know who is not aware of these dangers as it could cost them hours of grief or financial despair.
