Anti-virus software was originally developed to detect and remove computer viruses. However, with the proliferation of other kinds of malware, antivirus software started to provide protection from other computer threats. In particular, modern antivirus software can protect from malicious browser helper objects (BHOs), browser hijackers, ransomware, keyloggers, backdoors, rootkits, trojan horses, worms, malicious layered service providers (LSPs), dialers, fraud tools, adware and spyware. Some products also include protection from other computer threats, such as infected and malicious URLs, spam, scam and phishing attacks, online identity theft (privacy), online banking attacks, social engineering techniques, Advanced Persistent Threat (APT), botnets and DDoS attacks.

I have a new client with a light speed web filter appliance. It's currently licensed for just web filtering. Does anyone know if they also offer licensing for virus/malware filtering and detection? I am waiting for a call back from sales but this is time sensitive.

Thanks

How to generate and install SSL certificate for Avast?  -- Never worked with SSL certificates, always had someone else do it.    I am installing the Avast Business Management Console on my Win7 Pro workstation to manage the installation of Avast Business Pro on 3 servers (SBS2011, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2) and 7 desktops (Win7Pro, Win10Pro).   During the installation it prompts as to whether 'I have my own SSL certificate'  OR  'I don't have my own SSL certificate'.   The install states that 'We will generate a self-signed certificate which is good enough for temporary testing purposes.  However, it does not meet high security standards, therefore we recommend to use own SSL certificate.'  

Can you point me in the right direction?

Thank you.

I am currently running Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 on one of our computers.  I am getting an error in the event log that states "The Symantec Eraser Control driver service failed to start due to the following error:  The specified procedure could not be found."  Does anybody know if the Symantec Eraser Control driver is part of the Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 package or if it is leftover from a previous version of antivirus installed on this computer.  If it is leftover, what is the proper method to uninstall it?

Firefox Browser is being held by this screen
Browser MessageA women's voice tells me something about "invalid version and computer is locked".  Also to "Call Microsoft support at 866-371-0354"

I go this message while trying to play a video on Motrorcycle (RacerX) site I've visited daily for at least he last 10 years.

I shut off and turned back on the computer but every time I open Firefox this appears.  I am not having any trouble with MS Explorer, which is how I got to the EE site to post this question.

I use McAfee Total protection.  When I open McAfee to do a virus scan, the scan button seems to be disabled.  I click it and nothing happens.

What can I do to get rid of this virus?

This is a Windows 7 Pro machine

I have been using Delphi 7 in Windows 10 for quite awhile.

I use ESET Internet Security as my anti-virus/anti-malware protection.

A recent update in ESET has caused problems with D7 - when I run a program from the IDE, the program never starts - it appears as though ESET is blocking the "integrated debugger" from attaching to the process.

I can disable all protection and everything works.

I'm looking for alternate solutions - something I might be able to add as some type of exception rule in the anti-virus to allow the integrated debugger to work.

Is the integrated debugger actually "integrated" in delphi32.exe, or is it called by the IDE?  That is, is there a DLL or exe that can be identified as exception to anti-virus program?

TIA.

User believed that their computer was hacked, and some sort of malware was sending out messages.
They received several phone calls from friends who had gotten blank email messages.

I installed and ran Malwarebytes, which removed 717 components of Potentially Unwanted Programs. McAfee had been previously installed, but that protection didn't notice what Malwarebytes found and quarantined.

I noticed that there was something, possible an extension, that was added onto chrome.  I

Is there anything else that I should run?
What's a good way to check if emails are still being sent out?


Thanks.

This is not a tech question but looking for suggestions. I want to send email to non - tech end users to follow some best practices to avoid spam emails / malware / spyware/ viruses on their computers. They are using Office365, Dropbox, internal file server, heavy internet browsing, Outlook.

Watching out for certain type of emails, avoid possible threats by following good practices etc.

If you can send me some links of good articles that I can simply forward to end users for them to read up on to  increase their knowledge that would be great!
I can google few articles myself but wanted to see if anyone have their favorite articles or blog posts already.

Thanks!

I run AVG Anti-virus, Hitman Pro and Anti-malwarebytes on one of my computers.  Over the last several weeks I am running into a whole lot of system problems.  I tried to install avg tuneup today and it would not install.  I called AVG and they stated that it appears that I have a network worm.  So I booted up in safe mode, ran avg scan and anti-malwarebytes.  

I also ran hijackthis, to attempt to get rid of the nastiness but one entry will not delete.   It has been a long time since I have cleaned pcs.  Anyone here like to direct me on how to get rid of this thing and clean up my computer so it runs right?

Thanks,

It’s a sync / backup ?

If it syncs a problem can you revert backwards ?

Hi All,

I created a centralize exception under SEPM (Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager) to disable  the possibility for the users to add a user-defined exceptions (SEP client version 14.x) locally. That works perfectly but the previous "user-defined exceptions" created by the users are still present in the list and with the action "Ignore".
There is a way to delete all previous exceptions created by them and only force the centralize one?
Thanks in advance,
Javier

A new client was infected with Cryto virus. The office has 3 winodws server running on vmware and about 10 desktop computers running windows 7 and 10.  As described by them they got infected last week but since they had backup the office manager proceeded to run malwarebytes on all computers, removed the malware and wiped out the a client pc that was infected.  They told me today that the cryptovirus reappeared and and some folders in the server were encrypted but they shut everything down.

Now is my job to make sure I remove the virus. What i'm thinking:
purchased a managed antivirus solution, i'm considering kapersky.
install a real business firewall solution.

My question is this;
will the AV solution really remove the virus and anything that's dormant or i need to wipe our the servers and reinstall?
the windows servers are hosted no vmware 5.5, is there a way for me to scan the "windows servers" before they boot up into windows, something like booting from a USB drive
Besides the obvious of AV, is there anything else i should keep in mind to make sure the virus is gone once for all?

thanks.

Hi All,
we have a need to have developers to upload files to azure blob storage, since we can't control what machine they use when they upload the files, I wonder if there is any way we can implement so we can do virus/malware scan on azure blob storage?

I googled around and doesn't seem that Microsoft currently offer native solution.

Please advise. thank you

We currently use iSheriff to control all of our users' Internet activity, web browsing and Anti-Virus.  I am very pleased with their services, however, they will no longer be around after the end of this year.

I am looking for recommendations on other companies offering these types of services.  I would prefer advice from EE users that have actually used the product they recommend.

We are The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles, non-profit, so cost is a factor.  My budget is around $3500, per year.   We have 80 employees.
