VIRUS & MALWARE

The Danger of Viruses or Malware on your PC

There have been many bogus cold calls targeting people stating they are from Microsoft or Windows, they claim your computer have either connected to certain websites or become infected with viruses and they  intimidate to allow remote access to your computer / laptop. These calls are from fraudsters and completely fake. This is to scare you into allowing them access to your PC or laptop so they install viruses and then show you the viruses and then they remove asking for payment - total scam!  We have come across this many times and people have lost a lot of money allowing these fraudsters to connect to your PC / Laptop etc. If you have received such calls, call us for advice and we will help remove any software that they have installed and advise you on how to get your money back…

The National Crime Agency (NCA) has issued a warning regarding two pieces of malware software known as GOZeuS and

Cryptolocker. It has been discovered that this malware software is the cause of potentially one of the most dangerous

malware attacks in internet history - potentially putting millions of individuals and business in the UK at risk. It is estimated

that over 1 million computers worldwide are already infected with GOZeuS and Cryptolocker, of which over 15,500 are UK

based, and over £60 million has already been stolen.

MALWARE

What is malware - Any software that gathers user information through the user's Internet connection without his or her knowledge. Normally disguised to look genuine indicating that your pc has all sorts of problems and pay x amount to sort the problems out - dont ever pay as their software runs in the background stealing your personal data, credit card numbers etc. Popups and adverts are malware, your browser hompage being changed without your consent is another typical situation. Once malware gets in it leads to more and more ending up with a computer not usable. Almost all free programs downloaded from internet and installed to your laptop or computer goes with adware. Instead of one program you want, you get lots of unnecessary “cleaners” and “optimisers” Phishing is one of the easiest forms of cyber attack for a criminal to carry out, but one which can provide these crooks with everything they need to infiltrate every aspect of their targets' personal and working lives. Usually carried out via email - a basic phishing attack attempts to trick the person into doing what the scammer wants. That might be handing over passwords to make it easier to hack a company, or altering bank details so that payments go to fraudsters instead of the correct account - BE VERY AWARE OF THIS SCAM.
