I'm not sure if this is even the right forum for this question, but I am still debating between buying SCAL and the Cricut cartridges for use with my Cricut (to eventually use with gumpaste). I have been looking at the plethora of free SVG files out there, but I'm concerned about the possibility of viruses, since I'll be downloading files I find on the internet.
I'm wondering if the threat of viruses is significant enough, that it's better to buy the cartridges instead.
Does anyone have any insight into this?
I'm moving this to the lounge, since viruse don't have any direct connection with cake decorating, etc.
I think the risk would be really minimal as long as you have anti-virus software. I'm using Avira and Malwarebytes and we download a lot of stuff. You're more likely to get viruses from archived files and that's the majority of what we download, but between the two anti-virus programs, if we download something with a virus, the programs always catch it. It doesn't happen as often as you might think either.
