How knowledgeable are you about Internet Security? Week 4

How much do you really know about Internet Security?

Internet Security Myth: I know what I installed and what is running on my computer, so I have nothing to worry about.

Fact: Don't be so sure that you know what is running on your computer. In fact, we think it would be a good assumption to think that the majority of computer users do not know about everything that is running on their computer. There are very clever people out there that have discovered how to masquerade and hide programs that they don't want users to see. Rootkits are commonly used by cybercriminals which are techniques that allow malware and other components of their attack to hide from view. An example would be the ability of a file to hidden within a folder even when the user selects to view hidden files within explorer. Most infections come from software that installs itself, not by the user and does so without the users knowledge. Trend Micro includes rootkit detection and behavior monitoring software within our solutions in order to detect these types of activities.
