  1. Malware and Viruses


    Good evening everyone,

    I'm hoping to get in touch with someone who can describe what the following viruses objective is to do.

    I was installing the latest version of Opera Browser when my antivirus captured this virus I've placed in brackets below.


    Suspect!a12e7405c4ef


    I would much appreciate to hear from anyone in the community their knowledge and rundown about this virus.

    If possible also please direct me to a site that can verify their Intel.


    Regards Victa

    :)

  2. Viruses and Malware


    An anti-virus program alone does not provide comprehensive protection and cannot prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. Anti-virus software is
    inherently reactive...meaning it usually finds malware after a computer has been infected. Further, if you're dealing with

    zero-day malware
    it's unlikely the anti-virus is going to detect anything. Anti-virus and anti-malware programs each
    perform different tasks as it relates to computer security and threat detection. Essentially, they look for and remove different types of malicious threats.

    In simplistic terms, Anti-virus programs use massive databases with different scanning engines and detection methods to scan for infectious malware which includes

    viruses
    ,
    worms
    ,
    Trojans
    ,
    rootkis
    and
    bots
    .

    Anti-malware programs use smaller databases and generally tend to focus more on
    adware,
    spyware,

    unwanted toolbars
    ,
    browser hijackers
    ,
    potentially unwanted programs
    and
    potentially unsafe applications
    .

    Anti-virus and Anti-malware solutions with anti-exploitation
    features
    protect against
    zero-day malware
    ,
    drive-by downloads
    ,
    exploits
    and
    Exploit Kits
    .

    Therefore, you need both an anti-virus and an anti-malware solution for maximum protection.

    Important Fact: Keep in mind that
    the user is the first and last line of defense and security is a constant effort to stay one step ahead of the bad guys. No amount of security software is going to defend against today's sophisticated malware writers for those who do not practice
    safe computing and stay informed. It has been proven time and again that the
    user is a more substantial factor
    (weakest link)
    in security than the architecture of the operating system or installed protection software.

    Security begins with personal responsibility. Common sense, good security habits, safe surfing, understanding security and safe computing are essential to protecting yourself from malware infection.

    Hi,
    SteveLavoie
    . You do not need any anti virus app on the phone. See this this link for more information:

    . What is the software version installed on your phone? Have you tried checking is there's an update available under
    Settings>phone update>check for updates? If updating the phone doesn't help, we'd suggest sending it to our Care Point using this link:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-ie/mobile/worldwide/
