Why it is important to be informed
Most hackers attacks are mass and non targeted. Hackers infect anyone who may get unlucky, they don't care about your social status, financial situation, or stance on government policies.
Unfortunately, antiviruses can protect you only from a small number of threats.
Without any doubt, your money is the most desired loot for a hacker if you don't use online payment systems like PayPal, e-banks or Bitcoin. Your data can be simply locked up and held for ransom a hacker can steal your email accounts, social network accounts, accounts with eBay Amazon Aliexpress and other popular sites and then sell them off in a lucrative deal on the darknet. They are subsequently used in spam, carting and fraud activity. Your computer can be used as a proxy server for anonymous illegal action, spam sending, infecting other computers, launching DDoS attacks, breaching companies and government organizations and may lead to dire consequences. Don't fall victim to misconceptions set up comprehensive internet privacy and security.
Why should you need privacy and security on the Internet?
Fine for downloading a file from the Internet
Many of you would say to yourself that you don't share anything, you just download. But you will be disappointed, not only people who share files are subject to persecution, those who distribute them also face huge damages. You know that torrent clients (same uTorrent) start automatically distributing downloaded files making you a criminal.
Being watched by special agencies
According to the documents shared by Edward Snowden, the US special agencies watched over a million citizens of Brazil. Such mass surveillance and data collection constitute direct interference with citizens' private life and take place all over the world. Why should you think you are not being watched too? Perhaps it's time to stop relying on your luck and start thinking about Internet privacy and security? This is not a paranoia, this is an adequate response to the data mining activities of special services, primarily from the US.
Do you still believe that special agencies are not watching you? Then visit the site wikileaks.org. It is known that the visitors of this website are closely watched by special services, and this was confirmed by Edward Snowden. Wikileaks is not the only site watched by special services. For instance, a popular torrent site Pirate Bay is also under surveillance.
It is absolutely clear why drug dealing websites or child pornography should be blocked, but the government of many different countries blocks the websites of opposition editions, politicians' blogs depriving us of the right to hear other viewpoints.
Censorship is not just a tool that restrains common users, it's a proven method of exerting pressure on individuals. The owner of an online edition or blog can be given a warning that the publication of unsuitable materials may lead to his edition getting blacklisted, and he will lose his audience, advertisers and therefore revenue. Under coercion he won't publish what he's thinking, he won't tell what he's supposed to.
Censorship is pervasive. If you don't stand up to it from the very beginning, it can ruin you. But if every person has the awareness and skill to get around censorship, it will be rendered useless both as a restraining tool and means of exertion.
