Well worth a look to see if you’ve set up your firewall and security correctly for your home network.
Is your firewall doing its job? Find out with ITSecurity’s guide to making your firewall (and, ultimately, your PC) more secure.
The 10-step guide covers topics like tweaking firewall settings to match your specific needs, adding multiple layers of security (including anti-virus and malware tools) and choosing strong passwords. Sure, much of this advice is common knowledge to Lifehacker readers, but you probably know someone who could benefit from it. Share, people! The guide has a friendly tone, with plenty of real-world examples to make it easily digestible. Good stuff. If you like it, the same site offered tips on fighting spam a few weeks ago. — Rick Broida
