We’re using computers more than ever, Internet usage is at its peak and guess what, online threats are here to stay and in an ever-growing state. If a couple of years ago the main problem was getting a virus that disrupted your network and you had to reinstall your system, nowadays the main threat is getting malware that monitors your keystrokes, gathers your logins and credit card information and basically steals your online ID. It’s more and more obvious the important role malware protection plays in preventing all of this.
Since our last giveaway was a while back, we thought of organizing a new one and this time we’ve partnered with a very popular anti-malware solutions provider, Malwarebytes. They have a free and a pro version, and in total removed over 5 billion malware infections up to date. What we’re giving away is 5 licenses for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro, in a giveaway that follows the rules of previous ones:
- Each of the 5 licenses is lifetime valid and can be installed on 1 PC
- The winners will have the same benefits as a regular paying customer of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
- There are no restrictions at all to participate, anyone can sign-up for this giveaway
- The giveaway begins now and ends on
Wednesday the 26th, 2012Friday the 28th, 2012
