If you are about to go on holiday and you are thinking of taking your computer and get connected to Wi-Fi or using computers that are available in hotels and other public places, you must read this post [1] with 13 tips to protect data, as published by Andrea on her blog:

¿Conoces los riegos de utilizar ordenadores públicos?

Desconoces el “estado de salud” de estos ordenadores, es decir estos pueden tener virus o programas maliciosos instalados para robar tu información (malwares). Entonces si no quieres que el estrés post-vacacional sea más agudo por problemas con tu información, lee con atención.

Do you know the risks of using public computers?

You ignore these computers’ “health condition”, and they can have virus or malware set up to steal your information. So, if you don't want post-holiday stress to be more serious for problems with your information, read carefully.

No doubt about it, now the 13 will be a very lucky number.
