Up to No Good!

There was a time, not long ago, when the majority of viruses and Trojans were created mostly by mischievous college students eager to put to the test what they’d recently learned in computer programming class. So what if  their technical prowess wreaked havoc on somebody else’s computer; it was all about outsmarting others and having a blast!

If only today’s malware were half as innocent, but unfortunately that’s far from the case. Twenty-first century viruses are far more sinister than ever and have evolved into a sophisticated game of cat and mouse. No longer the sole domain of pimply-faced college computer geeks having fun on a Friday night, the new face of malware belongs to organized global crime syndicates, industrial corporate spies and rogue foreign nations seeking political retribution.

Let’s take a closer look at today’s villains:

  • Phishers are individuals or small groups who execute phishing schemes using spam, phishing and spyware/malware to commit identity theft and online fraud,with the objective of monetary gain.
  • Spammers are individuals or organizations who distribute unsolicited e-mail with hidden or false information in order to sell products, conduct phishing schemes, distribute spyware/malware or attack organizations.
  • Spyware/malware authors are individuals or organizations with malicious intent, that carry out attacks against users, through mass proliferation of software that can be used to track or spy on your activity on a computer, tablet, cell phone or any other digital device. Often, the term applies to malware that is installed on a computer with a malicious intent to watch a user’s actions, and replicate them, in order to steal data or other information referring to a user.
  • Foreign intelligence services use cybertools as part of their information gathering and espionage activities. Under this umbrella you’ll find rogue nations that are aggressively working to develop information warfare doctrine, programs and capabilities. Such capabilities enable a single entity to have a significant and serious impact on the daily lives of U.S. citizens by disrupting the supply, communications and economic infrastructures that support military power.

Best Practices For Avoiding Malware in the Workplace

Malware takes on many different forms and attacks in different ways. That’s why ongoing user education in the workplace is essential to ensuring that your network is secure. Employees need to understand the criticality of downloading and running unknown software and blindly opening phishing emails. One of the many benefits of engaging with a Managed IT services provider such as Advanced IT Solutions, is secure 24 x 7 monitoring of your network.  By controlling access to systems on your organization’s network, through the use of proven technology and methodologies—such as using a firewall, IPS, IDS, and remote access only through VPN—we can help minimize your organization’s exposure to malicious attacks.

Through the use and administration of reputable antivirus software, we can provide your organization with ample fortification against unwelcome and disruptive malware attacks. When properly installed, a suitable antivirus solution can detect, and in some cases remove or quarantine, any existing malware on a system, as well as monitor for and mitigate potential malware installation or activity, while the system is running.

Another significant aspect of Managed IT services is the peace of mind that comes from having regular website security audits performed on a 24 x 7 basis. By regularly scanning your organization’s website for vulnerabilities and to detect if known malware has been installed, our experts can stay ahead of anything that might compromise your organization’s security, thereby maintaining a secure network that protects your employees, customers and visitors from external threats.

Our team will also establish regular, verified backups for your data that are current and automated. This can mean the difference between smoothly recovering from a destructive virus or ransomware attack, versus stressful, frantic scrambling with costly downtime and data loss.  With Managed IT services verified backups you’ll never have to rely on old, outdated backups. The criticality of having regular, ongoing backups translates into usable, up-to-date documents that  can get your business back up and running in hours or days, versus weeks.

Testimonials

Mike took great care of me. I had a pretty good laptop that was quite corrupted. Mike gave me a fresh install, recovered my data,and took the extra time to explain a lot of important security and software settings. I had such a good experience, I’m bringing all of my computers in for a similar overview. Top notch service and treated very fairly!

Rick Vaughn, Google Review

This is the fourth computer we’ve brought to Mike and his team. We are so impressed with their professionalism and knowledge. They can work on our Macs and PCs. It’s one stop computer repair. Mike educated myself and my 14 year old son about internet safety and keeping our machines virus free.
