iAntivirus on-guard catches this threat in real time.
Let say someone you know or close to you sent you a file through messenger. Without your knowledge, the file is a Backdoor server component which the sender wishes you to install so that the client component which is on the attacker side could perform unauthorized task to your machine. Here’s the impressive real time catch of iAntivirus.
Files In Your USB Flash Drive
In our daily computing activities, USB flash or portable drives plays important role in storing, exchanging and transferring files. You often get out of control when too much files are stored and worst if one day you are dragging malicious files to your local hard drive.
Which browser have anti-phishing features?
- Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 or later
- Mozilla Firefox 2 or later
- Opera 9.1 or later
Yes, this is true Safari 3.1 is not capable of detecting phishing site and this is where PayPal is most worried about – because they are always targeted by phishers.
Base from last year report, Anti-Phishing Working Group receives an average of 25,000 new phishing sites per month and 91.7% of this attacks are related to Financial Services.
This is the reason why we will be seeing more security features integrating to web browsers just like Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 – which was released last week. There are two significant security features in this version:
Safety Filter – It prevents known malicious sites from loading. However, this feature does not work in my testing. Perhaps, they are still working on it.
Domain Name Highlighting – As shown in the example below, the real domain name is not citibank.com instead it is 8martofftoday.org. Absolutely, a phishing site! This feature is also available in Mozilla plug-in “Locationbar²“.
Mozilla Firefox 3 Beta 1 was previously announced and this version provides more security features including “Malware Protection”, “Anti-virus Integration” and “One-click site info”. Check the full release notes here.
The continuous proliferation of threats in the internet has escalated user’s security awareness. And this, factors into users’ expectation that softwares and application should provide security features. Beating up threats is just like a rat race and whether this is users’ problem or not, the trend is now pressuring Safari to blend in.
