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.

How knowledgeable are you about Internet Security? Week 3

How much do you really know about Internet Security?

Internet Security Myth: Computer Security is only for the experts.

Fact: Not true. There are many security tools that have been developed with simplicity in mind. Some of these security tools have even been developed so that all the user has to do is install it, and it does the rest itself! Trend Micro recommends users be security conscious in their day to day computer habits. This is because criminals use social engineering techniques like phishing emails to trick users into installing their malicious code. Also, FakeAV is very prevalent and a user should know how to identify FakeAV if it happens to pop-up on their screen. Being a bit suspicious about emails and pop-ups can help a user in the long run. Trend Micro has a number of video's that teach users how to identify threats and we recommend they take some time to review these.

I get TONS of these types of emails. Not sure where they come from, but they are relentless. All is takes is one click to give them access to your entire life! Check out Titanium Maximum Security to protect you!

How knowledgeable are you about Internet Security? Week 2

How much do you really know about Internet Security?

Internet Security Myth: No one will try to break into my computer because it has nothing of value.

Fact: Unfortunately, you have more information than you may think on your computer. Do you do your banking online? Do you send and receive emails that contain sensitive or personal information? Have you ever entered personal information such as a social security number, credit card number, or even a username and password into a website? Even your machine can be used in a denial of service attack against government networks or used to store the criminal's stolen data since they don't want the FBI finding the stolen data on their machines. Data, machine resources, hard disk space all can be sold within the underground market for profit, so don't believe that your computer is not of value. There are tools available on the Internet that allow criminals to discover and identify this information on your computer if they can get access to your network. Trend Micro researchers work with law enforcement regularly and see all the different types of data that are sold within the underground market. This collaboration allows us to build better defenses for our customers based on better understanding of these criminal activities.
