Protection for bloggers and surfers

I have read of many cases of blogs being hijacked, hacked into, and all kind of very unpleasant stuff. If your blog get hijacked, not only you may not have access to your blog, you may find it being redirected to porn or sexually explicit websites which can be really embarrassing especially if you have given the blog URL to relatives, friends, colleagues, business associates, etc. Further, as a blogger, I have many files in my hard disk which are essential for my blogging tasks and which I cannot afford to lose. That may well happen if somehow my computer get infected with a virus which may wipe out the content of my hard disk.

I am not a hacker, so I don't know exactly how they do it, but I guess one of the way is to somehow, for example, by installing a key logger into your computer without you knowing it, and stealing your user names and passwords. Whatever it is, I think important stuff like these are best left to experts with antivirus software. With such antivirus software installed, I can at least blog with better peace of mind knowing that I am protected.
