Anti-virus information

If you have your own computer, it is crucial that you protect it from viruses and other threats. All computers connected to FCDN are required to have anti-virus software installed.

Obtaining anti-virus software

For Windows users, we recommend Microsoft Defender, as it provides a good level of protection without putting too much strain on the system.

Linux and Mac users can obtain a free copy of McAfee VirusScan, which is provided free of charge by the Computing Service for all the members of the University.
