Almost all Windows users have sometime been worried about the security aspect while using a computer. We keep hearing incidents of data theft, identity theft, financial information stealing etc. from computers. Computers and operating systems these days are much more secure and safe compared to what they used to be in the initial years when computers starting becoming easily available about a decade back. These are numbers anti-virus softwares and in-built tools inside Windows which are made to counter online threats and virus attacks on a computer, but they are not 100% fool proof. We always say that its better to be safe than sorry while using a computer just like we follow this principle in other aspects of life. My intent is not to scare you, but I intend to make you aware that such threats are real and they do attack common computer users like us. In this article, I will share a small and easy to use software tool which will check how vulnerable is your Windows Computer to cyber attacks, data thefts and other unwanted activities.

Extract Security Analyzer

Security Analyzer is a light weight and efficient tool developed by ITKnowledge24.com which is just an audit tool which checks whether your PC is vulnerable to attacks or not. It is not an ant-virus or security software, please don’t use it as any substitute for your security software (anti-virus or internet security software). Security Analyzers just check some vital settings which are key security loop-holes exploited by hackers or attackers or phishing softwares to steal your information or attack or hack your computer. Using Security Analyzer is fairly simple. Simply download the extractor file here and run it. This will ask for the path to extract the files. Select a valid path and click extract.
