As the number of people using the internet increases, cybercrime incidents are also increasing. Hackers are becoming more aggressive in obtaining personal information from people all over the world, which is also known as ‘identity theft’. Some of them even commit more grave offences, such as: stealing confidential files from governments or private companies, stealing money and properties, and leaking computer viruses that can permanently destroy valuable files. This is the reason why keeping computers, computer networks and files safe should be a top priority for everyone. The first you can do is installing reliable security software to your computer that will scan every website and file that you will download from the internet. Most of the computer viruses came from the e-mail. Therefore, you have to read carefully its content before clicking any link from it. If you think that it is a suspicious mail, delete it quickly and scan your computer. If you are using Pegasus Mail, there are add-ons that you can install and use to add encryption capabilities or enhance the security of your Pegasus Mail for Windows.
- QDPGP is a plug-in for the 32-bit version of Pegasus Mail. It was developed by Gerard Thomas. It provides a rich encryption support because it has all major versions of PGP and a variety of other encryption and security concepts.
- PMPGP is another plug-in for 32-bit version of Pegasus Mail, developed by Michael in der Wiesche. It provides an excellent support for the full range function of PGP. It also has an optional interface and documentation in German.
- PGP-JN is a plug-in for the 16-bit version of Pegasus Mail. It was developed by John Navas and provides support for PGP v2.6
If you are still not contented with your security software and plug-ins, you can also use a private proxy. With a proxy server, it will hide your IP address and you can surf anonymously on the web. It will prevent cyber-attacks to your computer and at the same time, it can also provide faster internet surfing.
