Viruses and spyware

Viruses and spyware can harm your computer and allow third parties access to your personal information and account details.

A ‘keylogger’ virus is often used to record passwords used on your computer and forward them to criminals, who can then log in using your details.

Viruses and spyware are generally downloaded via hoax emails, ‘free’ games, competitions or data downloads. To help protect your computer from becoming infected:

Install adequate security measures on your computer including firewalls, anti-virus and anti-spyware software
Ensure your protective software is updated regularly and update ‘patches’ for your programs as soon as they become available

If you notice any unauthorised transactions on your account, or believe your details may have been compromised, change your passwords immediately and contact us immediately.
