Downloading Software

The Internet provides a virtually boundless space for downloadable resources. There are a number of potential risks, however, that you should take care to avoid.

  • Intellectual Property Rights

    Check and read the terms of use: photos, videos, images, text content and software, may be protected by copyright and may not be free to use. If you are downloading a file, you might also be exposed to criminal and/or civil litigation if any illegal content is downloaded.

  • Protect Your Computer

    When you are using P2P or BT (BitTorrent) to download software, a port is opened on your computer for others who are downloading the same software. This also means that unauthorised persons could get into your computer.

    You should take certain security measures and adequate prevention to avoid any potential leakage of sensitive and/or personal information, and other security breaches. Learn how to protect your computer.

  • Viruses and Malicious code
