I own a 10.6 Macbook Pro with which I have to use a public IP (that does not change) frequently. I'm also required to idle at various IRC channels. As part of security, I use pretty strong passwords, have my firewall up and I do regular updates. I use the Google Chrome browser (again updated) for online browsing. I have file sharing turned off.
- Are there any more suggestions you'd make to keep my machine more secure?
- Are there any ways to detect if I have keyloggers installed on my machine?
- Any anti-viruses that you would recommend?
- I use colloquy to connect to IRC channels, is there any way I could mask my public IP from people who query it?
