It will be months if not a year before we can fully assess the impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic. In the near term though, the devastating virus has already completely upended our way of life. People across the country are being asked to self-quarantine and practice social distancing in order to slow the spread of the potentially deadly COVID-19 virus.

In hot zones like New York, New Jersey, and California, local governments are doing more than just asking. All people other than essential workers like healthcare professionals and people who work in the food industry are on lockdown. That means working from home or taking classes from home for many people, which they’re not used to doing. For hackers, that means a giant wave of new people to target with computer viruses and other malware.

If you find yourself ill-prepared to deal with the increasing threat from viruses as you work from home, Amazon is running a fantastic deal on Wednesday on a one-stop-shop solution that will protect your computer from viruses and provide internet security while you browse. McAfee Total Protection Antivirus and Internet Security is among the most popular options out there when it comes to protecting not just Windows PCs and Mac computers, but also mobile devices. Today, for one day only, you can get a full year of protection on up to three devices for just $16.99. McAfee antivirus software is already a great value at its normal price of $80 a year, so this is definitely a terrific deal.
