- How do I check a website for malware without infecting my own machine? -
This is a difficult problem to solve. Steps to protect yourself from a malicious website could mask the problem so you never see it. I can give you a few suggestions.
- Will malware infect the backups on my connected backup drives as well? - In truth, malware can infect anything that it wants to, but there are a lot of reasons why your backup files aren't targeted.
- When I Visit a Web Site, Can the Server Identify Me? - Minimally, web servers get your IP address when you visit. Whether or not that or other information can actually be used to identify you, specifically, depends on a lot of things.
- Does visiting a search-engine cached page prevent the original site from noting my visit? - Even a cached version of a website could send information about you back to the original server. The thing is that we just don't (and can't) know.
