Anti-Spyware

Spyware is software that aims to gather information about a person or organization without their knowledge and that may send such information to another entity without the consumer's consent, or that asserts control over a computer without the consumer's knowledge; it has also come to include programs that engage in various kinds of electronic fraud. Anti-spyware is software that removes or blocks that software; some common vendors include Malwarebytes, McAfee, Spybot-Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware and BitDefender.

Hi,  my website got hacked a few days ago which has let to my site being blacklisted by Google http://medicaladvocates.ie i have cleaned it on Thursday last and have requested Google to delist and have outlined the reasons why it needed it be delisted and the actions i have taken but it is still blacklisted, i read somewhere that it could take up to 6 hours for them to delist it.

As you can imagine this is really really damaging for my business, does anyone know of anyway of speeding up the process? i have submitted a couple of times in Google Search Console.

I have a question about Symantec Endpoint Protection.  We are trying to block USB access but are running into an issue with one of our devices.  From what I can tell, things like imaging devices are not supposed to be blocked.

However, many of our stations have ID scanners that are being blocked.  When I look in the device manager the ID scanners do show up as imaging devices.  

I'm not seeing how you white list a device.  

Thanks in advance for any help.

This is not a real virus.  AVG just does not recognize the program.
I made an executable file that AVG stops from downloading.
It says it Threat: DRep.
I scanned it on my computer since its my own file and AVG says its clean on my computer, but aborts the download from website.
Other people are also complaining about this.
Any suggestions how to stop avg from aborting?
Thank You

We use Symantec Endpoint Protections (currently v12.1.6) on our end user PC's. Remote users connect in remotely via Checkpoint SSL VPN.

We are testing SEP v14, which was released in November, and have a group of testers with it installed.  Now remote testers have reported (and we've verified/replicated) an issue where the "Endpoint Compliance Scanner report" fails that the Anti-Virus rule fails (Portal administrator requires you to have Symantec antivirus running and updated within the last 2 weeks). Another failure is similar for an Anti-Spyware rule.

This works fine with SEP v12.x, and the Checkpoint Network Extender version is 7.01.0000.  Screen shots are attached.

Has anyone run into this one yet?


Thank you,
Kevin

My domain controller continuously tries to access the same external IP address.  it is alerting my anti-malware program with several alerts.  I run scans with both the anti-malware and antivirus programs but neither finds anything.  The alert says it is coming from the domain controller using dns.exe.  I need to know where i can look on the DC to find the source that is trying to access this IP.
