Malware has been hitting hard lately and many sites have been infected. Sites differ when it comes to internet usage and antivirus/malware protection. However, they are identical when it comes to infection. The infections come from the following locations:
Spam emails that contain links or attachments
Blogs and forums that are spammed with links to adult videos
User-generated content spam (e.g. fake videos)
Malicious banner advertisements
Pirated software (‘warez’) and pornography sites
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) poisoning
Fake torrent files or files on file sharing networks
Web pages containing exploits
Malware is a serious problem that AV and Malware protection providers are scratching their heads on how to solve. Without boring you with the technical details on how it keeps happening, I will make some basic recommendations to help keep critical PCs running.
Removal of all non-business critical software from workstations.
Create an appropriate use policy that prohibits all personal internet usage on business critical workstations.
Ban all non-business websites and http traffic when possible.
Eministration can facilitate the protection services needed to keep your business healthy. Our health agents include monitored Anti-Virus, MalwareBytes Professional (not the free stuff!), software and hardware inventory control, two-factor remote office authentication for remote workers and monitoring of critical business machines.
