RESPONSE 1:
When it comes to dealing with malware, there are some tools and techniques at a user’s disposal. The first and most important, in my opinion, is to have an active anti-virus installed on all the systems and that the virus receives routine updates from the vendor with the latest vulnerability signatures. This type of program provides a real-time scanner. This type of scanner is always running in the background, and also the option for an on-demand scan. Some on-demand scans use multiple programs to scan for malware and other potential threats. The thought behind this is, if one program misses a vulnerability, another program will catch it. When it comes to techniques to use if you suspect that your computer is infected with malware is most importantly, disconnect it from the internet. PCWorld.com mentions that by doing this, you are able to ensure that your sensitive data from leaking or spreading. From there, a user should remove their temp files and run a scan to detect and remove any malware or additional threats. Some popular tools out there include AVG, BitDefender, Malwarebytes, and Microsoft’s Malicious Software Removal Tool.
RESPONSE 2:
This week we are discussing Malicious software, also known as malware. There are a few different malware type to include viruses, Trojan, and worms. As system administrators, whether on our home computer or the office system requires vigilance against the propagation of malware to ensure system availability. The best defense against malware is a good antimalware program. As a best practice this program should be configured to check for and apply updates daily, scan the system daily, be set to avoid locations that may provide false positives (such as database files that may appear as non standard files), and perform these actions during times that would cause the least impact to system user.
System Memory and Processors cause suffer a few different methods, there is a new malware called a file less malware that resides in system ram performing its actions, when the computer restarts this file is no longer present, a great malware type for this would be Spy ware that monitors what the user is working on. These programs can also exploit overflow errors which causes system programs to behave in “unpredictable” way, granting access to secured areas of the system.
