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.

Hello Experts,

I received the email below, and I was wondering if I should be worried? As you can see, the suggestion is that all my data will be erased. Please let me know you think this is just a hoax?

Hello! WannaCry is back! All your devices were cracked with our program deployed on them. We have perfected operation of our program, so you will not be able to regain the data after the attack.
All the information will be encrypted and then erased. Antivirus software will not be able to detect our program, while firewalls will be strengthless against our unique code.
Should your files be encrypted, you will lose them forever.
Our program also expands through the local network, erasing data on all computers connected to the network and remote servers, all cloud-stored data, and freezing website operation. We have already deployed our program on your devices.
Deletion of your data will commence on June 22, 2018, at 5:00 - 10:00 PM. All data stored on your computers, servers, and mobile devices will be destroyed. Devices working on any version of Windows, iOS, macOS, Android, and Linux are subject to data erasion.
So as to prevent data demolition, you can pay 0.1 BTC (~$650) to the bitcoin wallet:1JNA8bedQbSEikZMF7FQFA1r9K1qA2RUtW
You must pay timely and notify us about the payment via email until 5:00 PM on June 22, 2018. After payment confirmation, we will send you instructions on how to avoid data erasion and such situations from now forth. Should you

Referring to above  BackSwap Banking Trojan ,  does McAfee AV & IPS detect/block it?
Think I saw a link (but misplaced it) that McAfee AV can't detect it yet.

Is there alternative ways of detecting/blocking it if AV can't?

What is the hash or IOC for this malware?

I am trying to confirm whether Sentinel One EndPoint Protection is a viable replacement for existing Webroot EndPoint Protection and MalwareBytes EndPoint protection.  We have been using Webroot/Malwarebytes endpoint clients on our workstations and servers for about four or five years now.  We have not encountered any compromises/issues using these products.   I also need to mention we also use Cisco's Umbrella Roaming Client as well.

We also have a SonicWall TZ500W with the Comprehensive  Gateway protection.  We never enabled the DPI module because it caused many connection issues accessing creditable Court websites, etc.  

So now SonicWall is promoting/offering their Capture Client solution that I am interested in.  I wanted to purchase the Sentinel One client software a couple of years back, but they said I could not make a purchase since the minimum count they could sell is 100.  We only need 25 licenses.  So now that Sonicwall offers Capture Client, I want to know if its feasible to say it would actually replace both Webroot and MalwareBytes EndPoint products and not just work along side and complement them.  So, I contacted Sentinel One Sales and they indicate their product serves as direct replacement.  They also mentioned their clients actually use Capture Client exclusively.

I have concern about a complete replacement solution.  I just want to ensure if we decide to deploy Sentinel One Capture Client as the sole Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware solution it …

I have a requirements to block only 3  Tcp ports on 50 PCs (in 25 branch offices) :
these PCs run a stripped-down DB2 services & I only want PCs in the same subnet
to connect to it.  The Tcp ports are  523, 8000, 50000.

We would like to use McAfee endpoint security (ver 10.5) to do this blocking.
Can someone give me step by step (screen by screen) instructions to do this?

These 25 branches are in the subnets (with their default gateway 10.2.X.1)
10.2.2.0 /24  ==> so permit only  10.2.2.X to connect to its 3 ports above (incoming Tcp)
10.2.3.0 /24  ==> so permit only  10.2.3.X to connect to its 3 ports above (incoming Tcp)
. .  .
10.2.27.0 /24  ==> so permit only  10.2.27.X to connect to its 3 ports above (incoming Tcp)


Using Windows 7 Firewall is not an option for us (for some reason).

Hi,
newly installed and joined to domain windows 2016 server
showing strange message during boot :-)
wtf is this?conficker infection or normal  windows boot message :-) ?

We are contemplating whether to use McAfee endpoint security's firewall or Windows firewalls
on our 30+ branches : the branches have some crucial Desktops running database services:
though the branches (ie spoke) connect back to our DC (ie hub), potentially some branches
may have their own broadband (or even just via 4G).

It's a debate between our Windows Desktop & our Firewall admins which one to use.

I know in previous Deep Security, I will have to create numerous 'policies' : one for each
branch though the branches have the same desktops running database services listening
on the same ports and when I upgrade the agents centrally from the EPO, had run into
issues:  modules (eg: Firewall or File Integrity Monitoring) that are not enabled previously
(say for servers), got auto-enabled.

So not sure if McAfee Firewall has similar or any other issues: kindly elaborate

1. Is it recommended to have both Windows Defender and
     Symantec EndPoint Protection running at the same time ?

 2. If not, how can I setup my MDT image
    so it does not deploy Windows Defender ?

A Trickbot Infestation has ravaged my network. It has wormed its way on to all workstations and servers. Does anyone know how to eradicate it and keep it from re-infecting other computers? If not, does anyone know of a company that specializes in removing this particular malware. I've tried different malware software removal tools and they identify and  remove it but it keeps coming back.

I try to install Symantec antivirus version 14 on a Windows 10 laptop and it tells me "This software is not compatible with this version of Windows". In the past I got this message when I tried to install Symantec version 12 but never on version 14, does anyone know how to bypass the error to install antivirus?
Thanks,

A friend is using Windows 10 (which is kept up to date).
He also has AVG Antivirus.
He normally uses Paypal for purchases (without any problems).

This morning, within an hour of using his actual Visa Debit Card on Government
website (motortax.ie) his card number was fraudulently used on some dating website.
(The bank phoned and cancelled the transaction and his card).

I'm going to run some scans tomorrow
- MalwareBytes scan in safe mode
- Hitman pro
- AVG

Any other suggestions?

I am trying to see if there is any way to detect and stop encryption process on a windows server.

Basically one of the workstation opened a ransomware (SIGMA) and it has encrypted everything on her computer which is to be expected. However, it also encrypted everything on the mapped driver from the file server. The file-server has antivirus and even anti-ransom but it still encrypted the stuff on the mapped drives. All drives or folders that were not mapped to this particular workstation are fine.
So the question would be if there is anything to prohibit any type of encryption that is initiated from a workstation. If not, maybe someone knows a good solution to prevent this in another way.

By the way, I do have backups, however since I only have backups every 24 hours, I lots one days work. I do not really care about the files on the workstation because I simply restore a clean image but if it messes with my files on the domain server, it becomes a huge issue and I need to find some solution.

Any tip is very much appreciated. Thanks to all that are willing to assist me.
The server is Windows Server 2016

My SBS 2011 Standard server cannot install updated definitions for Windows Defender (KB915597). Windows Update fails with Error Code 8050A005 ("unknown error"). This problem only affects the server.

I am running Symantec Endpoint Protection so I don't think I need Windows Defender. But I can't figure out how to uninstall or permanently disable Windows Defender on the server or how to un-deploy this update to the server. Windows Updates are managed by Windows Server Update Services.

I tried manually downloading and installing the standalone update package but I didn't see a download for my operating system.

I appreciate your help.

We are running currently Symantec Endpoint version 12.1.6 on windows 2008 32 bit server. We now want to go to Endpoint version 14.1 which I know wont work on 32 bit OS.
So is there a way to build the new server on say 2012 R2 and install version 14.1 and then migrate over the database from the 12.1.6 version that is running on server 2008 32 bit?
If so, is there a good document to follow to make this happen?
