Malware, short for malicious software, is any software used to disrupt computer operations, gather sensitive information, or gain access to private computer systems which include:
- Denial of Service Attacks
- Direct Access Attacks
- Backdoors / Trojans
Many of these malware variants are caught effectively by anti-virus software working in the background, or sometimes can be effectively removed by scanners which can be run on demand. But often the virus is so new there is no “signature” by which the virus can be recognized. These are referred to as “zero day” or “zero hour” viruses, meaning the antivirus vendors do not yet likely have a automatic removal solution.
But when the automated antivirus tools fail, we can help you get back the critical information you need.
