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.

Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

Hi Experts,

I realized that lately my pc is reacting very slow to my keystrokes, especially when using the mouse to move objects in Access forms, any idea what can be the reason?

I checked task manager and CPU usage is low, and RAM is not to high either..

PS. Windows 7 Pro, NO VIRUS as per AVG..

Thanks in advance.

I have a Windows SBS 2011 version installed with Kaspersky endpoint 10 anti-virus which is blocking local access of users to the server. I have folder redirection configured but could neither redirect any folders nor ping or open the server shared folder.

After pausing Kaspersky Endpoint, i can access all server resources. I have tried to add the local network on Kaspersky allow trusted networks but could not manage.

Please assist.

Not sure if my problem is self inflicted?

I use Avira anti virus.  Additional tools include Avira system speed-up, which optimises 'boot-up-speed/time'

Recently, I booted-up my latop and the avira optimiser appeared. I pressed ok, then made a coffee. Returning I noticed the optimiser was
still running?  stating that 'files were being 'repositioned' to minimise boot-up times'  Never seen this option before, but there was no way of cancelling this action.
I decided to re-boot, unsure of the impact.  On re-boot windows listed -  'critical' updates will be installed.

Opening file explorer I saw 'quick access' which I never use. Also my personal folder - as in 'Roberts Folder' was missing?
I re-set  to 'This PC' which I prefer, and again could not locate my personal folder?

I found my folder located in; Windows - Users.      

'Now I get confused'  ---  This PC - documents, has the same folders as my 'Personal-folder'  a carbon copy?

But the folders in 'My Folder - Users'  contain the most recent 'updated information'

I would like to retreive/ relocate 'My Folder' from 'Users'  to 'This PC'  prefering not to use 'Documents' for my business files.

Questions;  1)  Is the problem through Avira system speed-up?  (Tried restore points - no difference)

                     2)  Is this the Windows 10 layout - Have to live with it...

                    3)  Can I rectify this problem?  -  I could delete files in my documents, copy-paste from My …

Has anyone implemented Malwarebytes Business EndPoint product as their primary tool for protection?   Or are you adding this onto your existing antivirus solution?   Installed on servers or just workstations?   Looking for a little feedback.   I'm currently testing Avast Business Security app.....   Small business, small budget.

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.

So, just set up a new McAfee environment from scratch.  ePO 5.3.1, Agent 5.0.4, and Move 4.5.0 using the Multiplatform Client.  I've got an SVM Manager pointing towards a single SVM at present.

I put the MPC on a stand-by server, configured the policies, and successfully pointed the MPC to the SVM Manager which in turn pointed it to our SVM.  Great!  I downloaded a test malware file from GRC and unzipped it.  The infected EXE disappeared before it could be unzipped.  Awesome!

BUT - I didn't get a pop-up notification, which I really want.  Also, nothing appears in the 'C:\Quarantine' folder.  I've checked and double checked that:

1. The Move OAS policy is set to 'Notify users when a threat is detected on a on-access scan   (Multi-Platform only)'
2. This setting populated to the client, which reports EventSink 14 in the MVADM config.
3. The McTray icon is set to show in the Agent policies

And I've tried this in console and RDP sessions.  Nothing shows in the mvadm log.  Nothing is logged to the ePO threat detections tab for the server.  What's the deal?

Thanks!

So I have a newer Dell Optiplex 9020 that in Windows, I was getting an error AVG Antivirus 2016 from the system tray that "avgui.exe unable to locate component" - So i tried a repair of AVG, it failed, so I decided to uninstall/reinstall. This worked, but as soon as I rebooted it came up with the error message "Please press ctrl+alt+del to restart your computer" - nothing before it (like "failed hard drive" or anything) and nothing after it. This is all it does. I went into the BIOS and checked the hard drive etc and everything appears to be functioning, I have a feeling that the operating system was affected by the problem with AVG. Any ideas on how to restore without having to wipe out OS and reload?

Hello,

one of my co-workers got himself infected with the nasty Osiris randsomware.

I think we got it removed using multiple tutorials online, but I was unable to find a took to decrypt the files modified and make them work again. Kaspersky seams to have multiple tools, but nothing for Osiris.

Any ideas?

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!

When booting system get screen "Enter Password" with an "Unlock" Button (image attached). I'm assuming this is some virus but can't find anything on it and can't get by this screen, no safe mode, nothing.

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
