Practically ever click you make is now recorded, archived, and analyzed by a computer somewhere in order to predict your consumer behavior or enforce the laws of the nation state. The moment you put a computer on the internet, it is likely to be probed for vulnerabilities by viruses and crackers hoping to conscript it into a zombie bot army.
Yikes! What is an internet user to do? These pages will help you configure your computer to prevent these attacks at the network level.
