1 - You could try to stay off the world wide wasteland or www as it is written

2 - Avoid the use of any IT site that does not belong to a vendor whose product you use

Honestly, about all you can do is keep your security software (firewall, anti-virus, anti-etc...) and OS patching up to date and educate the user community to be careful in what links the user selects. You still have the problem of drive by infections but there is only so much you can do.

Since most of us use Google to get quick answer, I don't consider this to be off-topic:

If anyone has been the victim of something like this or has any suggestions for reducing the risk, please share.
