Conduit and other pesky malware
Posted on 2014-02-26
Almost every week one of our BYOD users manages to get a Malware intrusion by Conduit, Rocket Fuel, FLV or other browser re-directors or pop-up controllers. Currently there appears to be about six of these things that are prevalent.
I've tried recommending MS Security Essentials, Vipre anti-virus, BitDefender, McAfee, Symantic and other prevention tools yet nothing seems to be able to fully prevent this stuff.
Surfright's Hitman Pro is an excellent "2nd line" removal tool but I'd like to prevent intrusion in the first place.
I'd like to hear how others have dealt with preventing these problems as removing them can be very time consuming.
