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.

We have customers where we deliver nod32
However, customers who use an RDP session on a Vmware host (Windows 10-pro)
problem the delay by starting Nod32, and the moment from the Net use batch file processing the maps becoming active,
If the user is already trying to work before Nod32 is ready, it will crash.

Is there an option to view the status of Nod32 being completely on-line in vb6 or command-line etc.
So that we can monitor after that we release the software to the user


Batch sample

@ECHO OFF
CLS
NET USE J: \\ 192.168.3.125 \ Jdrive “123456” /user:jack /persistent:yes

Windows Security Essentials/Defender is using a lot of memory It is always at the top of the list of services. Are there any settings/tweaks that can help that. Is there another antivirus program that is not a memory hog?

Thanks.

I am having issues with reliability with 2 new servers I recently installed. I am running Server 2016 Standard as Remote Desktop Servers on Dell PowerEdge R640, Dual Xeon 4110 processors, 192GB RAM, 4 - 480GB SSD Mixed Use 12gbps in RAID 10 w/ PERC H730P Controller. BIOS version 1.6.13, PERC firmware 25.5.5.0005, Driver version 6.603.06
I am running ESET File Security  version 4.5

Issue I am running into are random lockups that require a full server reboot. The system runs fine and then every 3-4 days it will just lock up. Very little info in the event logs to look through and troubleshoot with. I was running Webroot but found some cases online where Webroot was causing BSOD. I have not seen the BSOD since going to ESET.

I am curious if anyone else has had issues with this type of configuration.

We have webroot for the company endpoints and recently installed Fortigate firewall. Do we still need Malwarebytes to get installed? We are a company with400 endpoints. We are with mpls velo cloud network. Already we have enough layers of protection. Please advise me and give me suggestions- pros and cons. Thanks.

there are 32bit client workstations on our network, failing to update virus definitions with eset 5.0.2126.0.

The Eset remote administrator is version 6.5.  The last time succesfull updates ran on the 32b workstations was Jan 2018.  ERA was installed on our network's server on 01/02/2018.  
Is eset 5.0.2126.0 compatible with ERA 6.5?    

I also noticed (in about) that there is 0 currentl licenses for ERA.   Could this be the problem?

I am trying to figure out what the previous IT guy did with ESET.   I conjecture that he installed the new ERA, and  it broke the update server for the older client installs.  Newer client workstations on our network use version 6.5, it checks ESET servers for definition updates, not our in-house proxy server.  Does this sound fesible?

Ransomware. Last week. I gave my indian developer RDP access to my local server on a zte f660 router.  Normally I was using the HP MSR930 JG511A, but there was connectivity issues as we switched ISP, and they recommended we don't use it the HP anymore. strictly been relying on the zte.

Today,  I got the shock of my live, was like a movie. ransomeware. find attached.

1. Where is the issue most likely from.. is it from the router?... or from other sources?
2. Do I actually have to pay them to get my system back up.. cos I don't really have  a backup..
3. How do I prevent this?
4. How do I backup my local server.. it's  VM ware?

PMI ACP® Project Management

Prepare for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam, which formally recognizes your knowledge of agile principles and your skill with agile techniques.

To whom it may concern
Hope you are well.  We have Kaspersky Endpoint Cloud installed on our network.  We are moving to Sophos Endpoint and need to uninstall the Kaspersky Endpoints on the network.

Domain Environment:  Windows 2008 R2 Standard
Domain Name:  homemakers-sa.co.za
Server VM Specs:
Intel Xeon CPU 5410 @ 2.33GHz
4GB Ram
64-bit OS
135GB HDD

The Kaspersky Endpoint Cloud console is in the cloud and displays the endpoints installed in the environment and not working like the old one where you have your console onsite and have the option to create a policy to uninstall.  What is the correct procedure to remove Kaspersky from the network so that I can deploy and install Sophos AV Endpoint.
Please let me know if you require more information.

Kind Regards

We use Spamtitan email filtering appliance connecting to Exchange servers.
Since OLE macro enabled attachments were recently marked as viruses, it has been so confusing regarding how we deal with the attached files sent via emailing. We use Microsoft Word document a lot and usually macros are used. Now according to the new rule, macros are equal to viruses. All emails with macro-enabled attached files got rejected but our virus-protection app (AVG) doesn't think they are viruses. Here are my questions:
1. What can we do if macros are needed in our documents and we need to send the document files with macro via emailing?
2. Why are macros equal to viruses? Isn't it right not all macros are viruses? Only macros infected with viruses are what we need to concern, right?

We don't want to disable that feature as we believe there must be a reason for it. What do you suggest? Thanks.

a user says there is some auto deletion of files she had on her windows 10 pc after doing a scan there is no virus or malware found. noticed that the browsers (google chrome, IE, edge) are not able to surf the net even though the wifi internet is connected. refer to some link like internet-connected-but-browsers-not-working-windows-10 however not able to resolve. Anyway to check if her pc is instead hacked by someone or the browsers issue is due to some system files that is non virus or malware related?

I'm currently looking at McAfee DLP 11.0 Endpoint to use for PCI/credit card data discovery. One thing I am wondering, will DLPe only scan a system while a user is active or can it scan/discover data on a system while no active users are logged in?

Hoping someone might have some insights on this. Thank you.
