The best practice to avoid ransomware and other malicious programs is to always make sure you are on a legitimate website. Remember that updates for your browser are done by your browser. If possible, make backups of your data even if it is only your documents, pictures, etc. this practice will make it much easier to restore your files without worrying about paying the ransom. 

Remember when in doubt don’t click on the download button, and you can always reach out to Ridgeline Computer Solutions LLC to be sure.
