Best practice for security?
#1
Hi, noob here,
Is there a guide for best practice concerning security, as in, not downloading malicious content? I can't find any.
In the meantime, I was hoping for some pointers: is downloading an ISO for a Windows OS that has been in place for a year and a half usually safe? That's what I'm doing right now.

If you're a noob, download from Trusted or VIP uploaders (pink or green skulls). That's the safest method.

The skill comes in time.. With time you'll realize if a torrent is fake or not according to it's title, description, files, size and by analyzing the previous comments.

Ok, uh... so that would mean, like here: https://thepiratebay.se/torrent/11116438...CELLENT%29? That's more of a... fuchsia. (Not that I paid a lot for this monitor)

That torrent is safe because the uploader is Trusted (Pink Skull -- check the screenshot)

The best practice is to read the FAQ, and exercise common sense before downloading anything. If you're a total noob, stick around the forum for a while to increase your knowledge.
