We all know by now that we need to keep our internet security in high regard by doing the following; Keeping our operating systems and security programs updated. These are the prerequisites in keeping your computer and private information protected.
Unfortunately, you will need more than just a security program to keep you out of harm’s way from drive-by attacks and exploits.
I recommend blocking every website and building a whitelist of trusted sites using NoScript. This is time consuming, but well worth it if you want to stay protected from any wrong doing. By doing this, you can derail most of the so-called web drive-by attacks that currently plague the Internet.
To add a website to your whitelist, go to options located in the bottom toolbar of your browser and select “Allow all this page“. See image below. You may have to select “Allow all this page” a couple of times in order to unblock everything or you can see what elements are blocked and unblock them in the options menu individually.
Don’t only take my word for it, but even top security experts agree that Firefox is really safer with NoScript!
