    Easy way to prevent is to not download stuff that you don't trust.

    The simple solution to this problem would be to stop downloading software from illegitimate sources.

    The core of the issue simply solidifies the importance of why users need to educate themselves for more responsible computing habits. Whether you are a Mac, Windows, Linux, Unix or whatever user, everyone should learn more about how to protect themselves and stay updated.
