What are software updates?
Software updates often fix weaknesses in operating systems and software, including apps, which hackers use to access computers and mobile devices. So keeping everything up-to-date is one of the best ways to protect yourself.
Why is it important?
Malicious software can stop your computer from working, delete or corrupt files and/or allow cybercriminals to access your personal and confidential information. Additional good-quality security software can defend you by providing protection including virus scans, spam filtering, parental controls and preventing unwanted access.
