Collected Links : Virus/Spyware Information/Removal

Postby Denniss » Wed Jun 18, 2003 1:07 pm

There are some very dangerous Viruses spreading out in the net (Bugbear / Sobig / W32Blast + variants and more) often using known Security leaks/issues within IE/Outlook or Windows
Please use Windowsupdate to get the most recent Security fixes for Windoze/IE/Outlook !
Use Auto/Liveupdate to update your Antivirusprogram/Firewall with the latest Patches/Upgrades/Virus Signature(Pattern) files !

->> Please do this frequently - at least once per week !!!
On infected systems it's possible Firewalls/Antivirusprograms are prevented from running or re-installing - some Viruses/Worms recognize and disable or bypass them !

Recently discovered Virus Threats + Virus Info:
Symantec - Bitdefender - Mcafee/Network Associates - Trendmicro - Panda

Antivirussoftware (Scanner + Removal tools + Signature/Pattern files) :Spyware/Adware/Malware/Dialer Removal :
Alternative/Secure Internet-Browsers :
Opera - Mozilla
Mozilla Firefox - Mozilla Stand-Alone Browser
Mozilla Thunderbird - Mozilla Stand-Alone Mail

-> Malware programs like Dialer/Hijacker/etc do easily self-install with IE/Outlook due to their ActiveX/Active Scripting "Features" - with Mozilla/Opera these problems are reduced to near zero

Firewalls (free for private use) :
Kerio - Zonealarm - Outpost

3 Cheers for Denniss! I already had AdawarePro6, but this Spybot adds to it. Between the two of them, I think that every base is covered. Thanks for sharing.

A new dangerous Sobig Virus is on it's way through the net !
It's called Sobig-E and uses the usual IE/Outlook way to spread out
