How can my computer have been compromised? I keep everything up-to-date.

Unfortunately, the weakest link in the information security chain is usually human rather than software driven. Did you share your password with anyone? Have you let someone else use your computer? Do you recall downloading and installing software that looked useful but didn't come through official channels? Any one of these or many other types of behavior can cause or enable a breach in the security of your system. Make sure you follow HSU's Top 10 Security Measures to keep your computer secure.
