Still, though most of the problem is now in the browser universe I do still practice good security measures on my Windows OS. Things like Comodo Firewall (I believe it's got some of the same ideology as the Linux firewall, though far more strict). I also do a virus scan on a regular bases. I don't allow programs to run from new externals. In my browser I use things like WOT and NoScript. I've also been using ForceTLS (though I just found that NoScript has the same ability just a bit harder to use). Since I'm on this mini-rant I'll go ahead and list what these plugins do:
WOT: Web of Trust; People vote on different aspects of a site (a number system) and the aspects are represented by green circles. If any of the categories have a Low (Red) rating, especially something like privacy or security WOT will automatically block it.
NoScript: Blocks All Scripts from a domain until and exception is made (blocks ads and potential bad script even in a good site, not that long ago I found a site that had an excellent rating for everything but, on the site was a link to a site marked malicious. I of course continued to block the malicious content and reported it to the site admins). NoScript also has a few other features.
ForceTLS: Forces certain sites (assigned by the user) to use TLS (HTTPS).
