We address recent media attention around whether antivirus software poses a threat to users’ safety because it intercepts encrypted HTTPS online traffic, and why Emsisoft customers do not need to worry.
There is one reoccuring topic within the industry which eventually makes it into the news: Ransomware. Data blackmail is an easy way for criminal hackers to make money – with businesses being an easy target. Supermarkets, Wholesale, Petrol Stations – even hospitals are endangered and need to take the precaution of being prepared.
At Emsisoft, we take this global threat more than serious – for years. What happens if ransomware happens, how it happens and what to do before and after – we’ve taken a deeper look in behind the scenes of cyber criminality nowadays and offer solutions and advice.
There’s a common misconception that having a firewall installed is enough to protect your computer from hackers. In the old days, this might have been the case. However, nowadays, a firewall on its own will not give the average user enough protection from modern malware.
Even if you have a good firewall installed, it is entirely possible for malware to be alive and well on your computer!
Learn more about why it could be dangerous to assume a firewall will protect you.
