Advanced malware security made simple

Malware protection is essential for defending yourself against cybercriminals. Malware is short for “malicious software” – applications or programs that can infect your computer and cause damage or loss of personal data.

Different types of malware and malicious software could already be installed on your home computer, including:

  • Trojans that pretend to be legitimate software, and trick you into running them
  • Hybrid malware that combines elements of viruses, worms, Trojans, or other forms of malware
  • Ransomware that encrypts your files, and demands payment (typically in a hard-to-trace cryptocurrency such as bitcoin) in exchange for a decryption key
  • Spyware that tracks all your keystrokes or watches and listens to you via your computer’s webcam and microphone
  • Bots that give control of your computer to a remote server that directs it to attack someone else
  • Bootkits and rootkits that burrow deep into your computer’s startup processes or built-in firmware, where they can control your computer while being harder to identify
  • File-less malware that sits in your computer’s memory, uses your computer’s other capabilities (such as Windows PowerShell scripting) to perform its attacks, and then disappears without leaving telltale traces

Traditional malware protection searches for “signatures,” but often miss new malware variations written by cybercriminals created to avoid traditional scanning.
