When some anti-virus product neutralize viruses, they delete the virus code found in the entry point and main part of the virus body but often leave bits and pieces of the virus left in the file slack. File slack is the extra unused space at the end of a file that exists before you get to the new fixed length block of data that starts the next file. (File slack is sometimes called padding .) In our tests, Kaspersky's anti-virus products installed easily without a hitch. The user interface was

NetBIOS Firewall


How many times do you hear network administrators scream at the top of their voice, "I have spent millions of dollars buying expensive and the best antivirus software solutions and yet every two months, when a new virus strikes, I have my entire network go down!" This is a common complaint you will get to hear from one and all network administrators, primarily because most security vendors today concentrate more on a "reactive" approach to stop virus attacks, than a “preventive” approach!

anti virus scanning  waits for the critical anti virus update from her vendor. Taking the same example of the W32/Deloder above, assume you some of the systems having null password. If the deloder virus compromises one of the systems, it might be successful in hacking into those systems with the null password, but cannot copy itself on to them, if Remote Access File Rights is enabled. Effectively, what we have now achieved is systems getting sand- boxed and remaining safe from any future intrusions. Filtering remote file Read More

NAI Will Pay Trend $12.5 Million Resulting from Law Suit


Settling a patent dispute out of court, Network Associates agreed to pay Trend Micro $12.5 million for the cost of licensing Trend's patented technologies. Both companies claim to be the innovator of scanning for viruses in electronic mail.

With revenues down 34% in the last year, Network Associates cannot afford to be held hostage by expensive lawsuits that drain resources and development focus. With revenue growth 180% lower than the industry average, Network Associates needs to use all its resources Read More

2008 Internet Security Trends: A Report on Emerging Attack Platforms for Spam, Viruses, and Malware


Just when malware design seemed to have reached a plateau, new and more complex attack techniques have now emerged. For a while, security controls designed to manage spam, viruses, and malware were working, but as a result of this success, the threats they protected against were forced to change. Learn about today’s key security trends and how you can fight against the sophisticated new generation of Internet threats.

Deploying zero-day defenses that can detect and quarantine possible viral attachments before traditional virus signatures have been published is imperative for complete network detection.

The Need for Vulnerability Management


New network vulnerabilities appear every day due to flaws in software, faulty configuration, and human error. Detecting, removing, and controlling vulnerabilities requires vulnerability management (VM)—the continuous use of software tools to purge exploitable risks. Find out how making VM a part of your network security strategy can help you counter sophisticated exploits and document compliance with security standards.

The risk of unanticipated vulnerabilities grows with use of General Public License software, particularly as implementers plug in untested modules of object-oriented programming code. These modules may include non-robust implementations of Internet protocol standards, making them susceptible to attack when placed into production environments. Careless programmers are not the only source of vulnerabilities. For example, improper configuration of security applications such as a firewall may Read More

Why One Virus Engine is not Enough


There is no single antivirus engine on the market today that is the fastest and most effective at identifying viruses, spam, or other threats. According to a recent survey, 97 percent of organizations have antivirus software installed, yet 65 percent have been infected at one time or another since. One way to reduce the chance of virus infection is to install multiple antivirus scanners at the mail server level.

Building a Business Case for Enterprise Spyware Protection


It is sometimes difficult to quantify the scope of spyware problems within corporate environments. The least noticeable effect of spyware is to slow network and desktop processing by tiny increments. But even the slightest slowdown, multiplied across the enterprise, adds up to a serious bottom line impact in decreased automated processing and worker productivity.

The Emerging Threat of Legal Liability for Failure to Prevent Spyware Attacks


Corporations striving to comply with data security laws and regulatory initiatives must implement anti-spyware measures. Businesses who fail to take reasonable physical, administrative, and technical measures to prevent the unauthorized acquisition, alteration, or destruction of valuable information, risk costly and disruptive legal proceedings. And courts and responsible agencies will freely second-guess such decisions in the event of a data breach.

My PLM Video Playlist on YouTube


A little heads-up: We’re going to start having videos on TEC’s Web site. We'll produce videos in the future but the first step we’ll start with is a library of links to freely available ones from YouTube.
