Virus, Spyware, and Malware Removal

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. After all, 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, mobile, tablet, 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 will 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 by disrupting the supply, communications, and economic infrastructures that support military power, with impacts that could disrupt the daily lives of U.S. citizens nationwide.

BEST PRACTICES FOR AVOIDING MALWARE

 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 A/V 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.

Malware takes on many different forms and attacks in different ways. But with some thoughtful preparation and process improvements, as well as ongoing user education, your organization can gain and maintain a solid security stance against malware attacks.

Testimonials

Every time I move to a new city, I am always on the lookout for people I can trust with the stuff I can’t do myself, such as an auto mechanic, plumber, etc. After many years, I believe I have finally found someone I can trust with PC maintenance.

Mike at AITS was helpful and informative. He seems to know his stuff, and sat down with me for 20 minutes after he had repaired my laptops to go over them with me and give me some tips and pointers for ongoing care. This is a level of service that is unusual these days. I will be a returning customer.

Mike was amazing. He took the time to listen to what my issues were. He worked within a budget and delivered more than we asked for. We had a bad hard drive on a mac that was full of years of pictures and he was able to get everything back for us.

I felt very comfortable working with Mike and I’m 100% satisfied with the results. Our 2007 mac has never run better. I would definitely recommend this place.
