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 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,

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

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.

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.

Good afternoon,

I am currently experiencing problems with my McAfee Policy Orquestrator version 5.3.2 console. Motivated by the fall of the console on many occasions, during these two days, the console is falling several times. The operating system where I installed the console is Windows Server 2012.

Actions done:

- Restart Mcafee services, the console works for a few moments and fails again.

- Run a Performance Monitor and in the report I see no signs of console failure.

- The server responds to the ping, at the network level I have no problems.

- Restart the server and, for the moment, I have not presented the problem, but as a precaution, I want to know what else I can validate.

Revisions we have not made:

- We have an external database for Mcafee, I have my doubts, if there may be a failure. The database is SQL Server 2012.
- Could try the ODBC connection to validate if there are connection problems with the database.
- I could validate the record (regedit). To validate the installation parameters of the console.
I validated the error a bit, I did not find much, just this McAfee KB, but it did not help much.

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB83647

Is there anything else I suggest I can review, does it sound more like an operating system or application failure? At the level of the operating system that other revisions can I execute? Should I open a report with Microsoft and McAfee to receive assistance?

I am administering an isolated network without any internet access.   We are using Mcafee Endpoint Security managed by EPO and Windows 10 clients with McAfee agents.  I update the repository directory with current DAT files manually every couple of weeks and then run update master repository and update clients.

Windows 10 Action center keeps nagging that AV is out of date. How does Windows 10 know when an update might be due if network is isolated?
Is there any way to adjust the Action Center to provide out of date warning to match my manual update schedule.  note: I do not want to turn off AV notifications altogether, since I do want reminders.

Thank you

I have a number of customers on Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud who receive Email advising to renew their subscription as early as 3 months before their existing subscription expires.  The emails are from Symantec.

A number have asked me to purchase renewals for them and load these into the portal.

The renewal licenses are being consumed before the existing ones have expired - something that hasn't happened in the past.  A support request to Symantec has had the response can't fix get a refund, and renew again closer to the expiry date.

Has anyone else on SYM EP Cloud found this and have you resolved it.

Hello! I'm new here and I want to ask you a question about this nasty .aesir extension virus or ransomware. My sons laptop is hardly infected with that scum and I don't know what to do... I've read Bleeping Computer article (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/locky-ransomware-now-using-the-aesir-extension-for-encrypted-files/)and they sate that
Unfortunately, at this time there is still no way to decrypt the Locky Ransomware.
but in the other hand I've found this guide in Google (http://soft2secure.com/knowledgebase/aesir-file-virus)that promote tool that (as they say) will help me to get rid of this infection. So I want to ask you where is the truth? Can this tool help me to resolve my problem?
Thank you for reply!

Hi
WE had a crypto virus few days ago and I had to restore the data from backup.
Now after I set the users ntfs permission it work for few minutes then the permission disappear.
For example I set permission for user mark as domain admin, system and mark with ful permissions.
When I look to all folder under mark's folder they are all OK
After an hour or so Mark folder still have full permission but all subfloders show mark on the permission list with not permission.
Is that because of some infection remaining. I scan the server and is all clean

Symantec Encryption Desktop (we are using version 10.3.2) can be used to encrypt a specific folder. It stores the data as an encrypted file in a location you select with a .pgd suffix.

When you unlock the file with a passphrase... and you direct it to a totally empty folder (we'll call it FolderA)... the content is now available in FolderA.

Recently, attempts to open the encrypted data are resulting in FolderA being empty i.e the data does not show up. One step in the process is to make sure that FolderA is completely empty before opening the encrypted data... we have checked that... and took an extra step to create a new folder... and directed the program to display the data in that empty folder. Still nothing shows up.

Thinking that perhaps the pgd file became corrupted we went back to backup copies of the pgd file... but we get the same result from the backups.

Anyone have any idea of what I am missing here? We have used the program for the last several years without any problems.

Suggestions greatly appreciated.

We have been having issues with different clients data files automatically backing up to AVG's cloud. It will say successful but 0 bytes and 0 time. Sometimes they fail. If we remote in and force a backup it will work. It seems to be on most Win 10 pcs.
Some work with no issues....just trying to narrow it down and see if anyone else is experiencing this????

Also, we contacted AVG , they say the issue is on our end and to try opening some ports....we did it did not work!

Thanks

Guys,

for those that are using Trend Micro to protect their corporate file servers, I would like to know if the global setting above is generally used. The documentation says it increases cpu load and scanning times. Would love to know what other guys do in their systems. Is it safe to run ? Has it given you any problem ?

Thanks!
