Keep your security programs up to date:
Microsoft - download the latest Microsoft security patches (if you're a Windows user)
Symantec - update your Norton Anti-Virus signatures
McAfee Security - update your McAfee Anti-Virus signatures

More about viruses and security issues:
CERT Coordination Center - more info about viruses, and security in general
GRC.com - use "Shields Up" to check how secure your computer is!
Cloudmark Desktop - Stop the Spam! (I don't use this myself, but I have friends that swear by it.)

Whatever safe computing programs you use, and you SHOULD use something, make sure you keep up on any program updates, or signature updates for anti-virus programs. You have to keep up with the bad guys if you want to stay safe!
And if you have any suggestions for other sites and/or programs, please let me know.
