How can I be sure the programs I use are safe?

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Any software you install has the potential to be exploited by hackers, so be very careful to only install applications from a trusted source, and scan every new program with your anti-virus before you install it. If you're at all unsure about the legitimacy of an application, contact the Technology Help Desk or the Information Security Office. The use of pirated software is illegal and in breach of HSU's Acceptable Use Policy
