Malwarebytes protect your IIP

Reminded me of the time watching a gamer-streamer on Twitch and he ended up seeing the SWAT team bust down his doors… Talk about a way to sell someone though, Malwarebytes surely found a clever way for the paranoid! Don’t fall for it though, make sure you check out what I could do for you. 🙂 I have been watching my logs here behind my gateway everyday since the year 1995 and it’s the best thing ever…

How to protect your IP address

Picture this: You’re minding your business, harmlessly lounging in your PJs while watching your favorite show on Netflix when a SWAT team busts down your door and hurls flash grenades into your home. Not exactly how you envisioned spending your Monday night, no?

While an extreme and rare outcome, if you don’t take steps to protect your IP address, this very scene could become a startling reality. Cybercriminals can use your IP address to download illegal content (and get you in trouble with the law) as well as target you for a future large-scale malware attack. Read on to find out how to lock down your IP address.
