Instant Messenger Protection (Trillian/AIM/ICQ/Yahoo/MSN/ETC)

Be aware that when you use instant messengers, you are putting yourself at risk, although there are some steps you can take to help secure your machine.

Keep your IM client updated

Your IM client is updated from time to time, stay current.

Sending/Receiving files/Direct connections

Do not accept or send files to people via instant messenger as that allows the person on the other side to see your real IP address. You open yourself up to security risks each time you send/receive files/directly connect to others. (Some files may contain Trojans/Viruses) Do not accept Direct Connections from people you donít know or from people that you do not trust. If you want to be really paranoid/secure, disable the sending/receiving of files, and direct connections to your IM client.
