Cybersecurity is a technique developed to protect Internet-connected systems, networks, and data from unauthorized access, attack and destruction. It's an attempt of users to reduce the risks of cyber attacks.
A cyber attack is an attack launched from one device to another in order to gain unauthorized access and make damage, disrupt, or destroy sensitive information. Hackers sometimes attack users in order to extort money or interrupt normal business processes.
Cyber threat is the possibility of a successful cyber attack with a goal to gain unauthorized access and disrupt a device network and system or steal sensitive information. These kinds of threats are launched to damage and steal data, or disrupt digital assets in general. These malicious acts can come from a variety of sources including trusted users or unknown parties from remote locations.
Antivirus software is a computer program developed to prevent, detect, and remove computer viruses and malware such as worms, spyware, adware, etc. The antivirus program usually offers two modes of operation: interactive and scan mode. .
In the interactive mode, the antivirus software is running in the background and monitoring the computer’s activity. In this mode, the program is looking for viruses coming in from the Internet or delivered on removable media.
In the scan mode, the antivirus scans the computer’s memory and its storage system, looking for viruses and other malware. If an infection is found, the antivirus software will notify of its presence. Then, the infected file is either deleted or quarantined for later examination. Either way, whatever operation the virus was set out to run, a reliable antivirus software will prevent it.
Every Internet user needs to have an antivirus software on their device in order to be protected from malware attacks. Without an antivirus program, users risk their personal information, files, browser history, credit card details, and other confidential information to get misused or stolen. If you don't have an antivirus software, third parties can easily track your online activities and collect your data without your consent.
Malware (short for malicious software) is any software intentionally developed to harm your computer. An attacker can steal any information from a device which is already infected with malware. One of the main objectives of malware is to provide an attacker with remote access to an infected computer. With malware, attackers can gain full access to your sensitive files like pictures or videos. They can also steal your confidential data such as banking information and credit card details. There are many different types of malware.
A virus is a computer program that reproduces itself by modifying computer files. The virus needs a host cell in order to spread. The computer must run the infected file so the virus can do its dirty functions.
Cyber criminals usually trick victims with fake inheritance, travel promotions or winning lottery tickets and other prizes. The potential victim is offered a prize but is also asked to pay a small amount of money in order to gain access to the prize.
Spyware is a malicious software designed to gather information about you without your knowledge. It's one of the most common threats that can easily infect your computer. However, it can be very hard to identify.
Cyber criminals send emails that appear to come from trusted sources such as banks, services or utilities. Their main goal is to trick recipients into revealing sensitive data and personal information.
Ransomware is a form of malware that blocks victim's access to their device until a sum of money is paid. Attackers demand ransom in order to restore access to the device upon payment. However, paying ransom doesn't mean that you will regain control of your device.
Worms are malicious programs that can replicate themselves in different places on a computer. They can't infect files, but can block communications and even slow down networks. Worms can be spread to other computers through emails, P2P programs, etc.
Trojan is a misleading malware that disguises itself as desirable code. It can be found in games, apps, or attachments in phishing emails. After downloading a trojan, sensitive information can be stolen from the victim's computer.
Backdoor Trojan is a type of virus that allows cyber criminals to gain remote access without the knowledge of administrators. It can go undetected and operate in the background without the users' knowledge.
Keyloggers are tools that monitor and send keystrokes to attackers in order to gain unauthorized access to passwords and other confidential data.
Bots help in gaining complete control over a computer. They can launch broad attacks against Internet users or big and small companies.
Adware is a sneaky variant of malware that has one purpose - to serve unwanted advertisements. It also bombards with annoying pop-ups and collects marketing data about you without your permission. It's hard to find and even harder to remove.
Rootkit is a set of software tools specifically designed to allow malicious programs to gain control of your computer. It can change standard operating system processes and even give attackers remote control of a victim's device.
Rogueware is a new type of malware that tricks users into buying a tool that helps in malware removal, but in fact it spreads it even more.
Exploit is a program or piece of code that takes advantage of security vulnerabilities in order for cyber criminals to gain unauthorized access to a computer.
Fileless malware is one of the biggest digital infiltration cyber threats. It uses legitimate programs to infect a computer. This type of malware doesn't leave any footprints, making it very difficult to detect and remove. It exists exclusively as a computer memory-based artifact i.e. in the RAM.
A privacy breach is an incident that involves access, use, collection or disposal of someone's personal information without their permission. This information can include the person's name, address, Social Security number, medical records or even credit card details.
We also offer THE PRIVACY SUITE which includes both products.
Identity theft is a type of fraud of obtaining and using another person's name and personal information in order to steal money or gain other benefits in the other person's name. The stolen information may be used to fraudulently apply for credit, file taxes, or even get medical services. Users whose identity has been stolen might suffer the consequences if they are held responsible for the thief's actions and are often very hard to prove and may lead to court cases, repossessions and additional fees and payments.
Webcam hijack is the ultimate privacy violation. Attackers might gain access to your camera and you might end up being a star of a show without even knowing it, or the audio and video obtained can be used against you to extort money or something else.
Mic hijack is recording audio of a device (PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone) without alerting the user. It's important to note that once users allow a website or an app to access their audio, the access will be granted until users manually revoked it.
Personal details hijack is stealing information such as name, phone number, address, Social Security number, etc for fraudulent purposes.
System failure is an operating system or hardware malfunction. It can cause the system to freeze or stop functioning completely. It may result in an error displayed on the screen. System failures may cause a computer to shut down as an attempt to prevent further damages.
Device crash is the sudden failure of a software program or an operating system. Hardware devices such as a hard disk can fail as well.
Sluggish startup is when the computer is slow and unresponsive at startup. One of the reasons for a slow startup is the huge number of programs that automatically start or a corrupt registry.
System lag is a slow response from a device at all times, not only at startup.
