How can protect website againest spyware and maleware?
Here is one simple way. After you have your content ready for the web, burn it to a read only compact disk (CD). Configure your web server to host the content from the CD and make sure that there is no hosting from a writable source (hard drive). If your server is hacked, there is no chance that they will be able to change the content on the CD. Also, make sure that you regularly apply service packs and patches to your web servers. Use strong passwords. Disable unneeded services.
Trojan horse metaphor meaning?
The Trojan Horse in Homer's Iliad was a large wooden horse left as a gift outside the barred gates of the city of Troy; soldiers were hidden inside the horse. The people of Troy saw it as a gift and took it inside their city, At night, the soldiers came out of the horse, opened the gate, and let the enemy army in to invade the city. Similarly, a Trojan Horse or Trojan virus is a program or file (like a game) we might want on our computer. It is downloaded, installed and run. The program may do as expected, or not, but it will also embed itself as maleware doing things on the computer we would not want.

Should you turn off defender to install nortons?
Just to be on the safe side...yes you should turn windows defender off. The reason is because windows defender is comprised of three (3) programs. A anti virus, anti spy ware and anti maleware. In addition you cannot have two (2) anti virus programs running at the same time. They will conflict with each other and cause numerous windows errors. Furthermore If you are installing more protection I must assume you are not happy with defender? I suggest a little more research you'll find your later choice isn't all that good. Hope this helps

How does computer get infected with rogue antivirus software?
Your computer gets infected by rogue anti virus software by the user allowing someone or something to download itself. This is called social engineering or the user's computer is already infected and the malware present downloads more malware including rogue antivirus software. Today anti malware experts are cracking down on hackers and other exploits in the cyberworld. In many cases th security is so good that even the most experienced people technically have a very difficult time being malicious. To around this malicious code writers take advantage of social engineering. Instead of being technical and finding holes or vulnerabitlitys in operating systems or programs cybercriminals just let a user let them in. You know when you visit a site or try to download data internet explorer will pop with a security warning. Well some people click yes download and so on. Thus making the criminals job a lot easier. Computers will also download rogue antivirus when already existing malware (malicious code) sends information about your computer to download more malware. Why does this happen? Cybercriminals know that after a while users will realize their machines are infected and therefore disinfect them. However if more and more malware is downloaded it will make fixing the machine and in many getting help very difficult. To fix malware problems visit download.com and search for AVG 8 Free. Trust me it is an extremely good piece of software. It fix the problem totally 99 % of the time. Hope you find a solution to your problem. I have found that AVG and other antivirus programs do not work very well with rogue antivirus and maleware programs. There are many different variations of these rogue programs and they usually drop trojans and worms with them. The programs that work effectively are maleware bytes antimalware and super antispyware. As soon as you know you have been infected you must start scanning with these programs immediately, as the infections start to lock your computer down. Meaning you may not be able to open things such as the registry, task manager, any programs, etc....

How do you remove System Antivirus 2008 from your control panel?
This is a real bugger of a piece of spyware - it can be a bit of a pain to remove too. Best bet is to download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and save to your desktop. Once there double click on it and follow the onscreen instructions very carefully. You need to run an update before you scan. Once the software is installed and updated, run a FULL SCAN. Be patient, go make a pot of tea or coffee - depending upon how big your hard drive is, it may take quite a long time. I was at one computer where it took nearly an hour to finish the scan. When the scan is finished, click okay and then show results. Make sure everything is ticked and then click REMOVE SELECTED. This should purge the software from your computer. Reboot and run a FULL virus scan. It is important not to miss this step. Some computers I've removed System Antivirus from also suffered a massive virus infection. Don't let this stress you out. That's why you have a good antivirus program. If you don't have one, get one NOW - avast.com has a top notch antivirus program you can download. For a reference concerning Malwarebytes' legitimacy please see the article by CNet written Sept. 2008. As with all recommendations on computer support, try to verify the claims about any software before you download it. A lot of trojans/maleware come disguised as legit programs. You find out the truth only after the damage has been done. Never simply trust the person who writes the article either knows what they are talking about, or has your best interests in mind. Your best protection is searching for more information on any software and if possible on the writer of the article. ........... Details on System Antivirus: System Antivirus 2008 is actually a rogue anti-spyware program that pretends to be a spyware tool for your computer. System Antivirus 2008 or SystemAntivirus2008, uses false system scans and popup message to make it seem you need to purchase System Antivirus 2008 in order to remove the infections that it found. This is not so, you cannot trust anything about System Antivirus 2008. The hackers that made System Antivirus 2008 did not deviate far from Antivirus2008 because both System Antivirus 2008 and Antivirus2008 look alike. They both use the same colors and devious tricks to ultimately take your money in return for a useless program. ---------------
Who invented the security tool virus?
No one knows, that's the whole point. If you need help removing it, check this site out: http://www.2-viruses.com/remove-security-tool It is completely bogus that "no one knows" as stated above. The money attempting to be collected by the program has to go a bank account that could easily be tracked and the perpetrator/s prosecuted. The reason know one is said to know or more likely that no one is saying who is because there is a lot more money to be made from the infection running rampant and absolutly no money to be made from bringing its creator/s to justice. The program even has a website! I'm fairly certain the web domain and server space is not paid for directly by the perp or at least I'd hope not. But the server could easily be located by even complete amature hacks and from that point it is simply a matter of spending the time to analyze the data that created the site and or the network packets that maintain it. If the site were created in house rather than over the internet that would make things even easier to find the person behind this. There simply is no money in bringing unknown hacks to justice for their crimes thus none of the above gets done. Heres some food for thought. If a hackers infection got so far as this program does your computer would be in a lot more trouble that could be fixed by following 5 simple steps of a website to remove it. Is a hacker going to try and trick you to send money via a very traceable credit card to a even more traceable bank account? Well that could happen but I can assure you almost 99% that you will not know its even happening. Its deffinatly not going to occur through pretty scripted windows that you click on with your mouse. The whole idea of a hack is to do it without the victim knowing anything until the hacks creator choses to let the victim know. As far as this program gets it would be better and easier to just load a keylogger and packet sender to silently record your next credit card transaction, steal you info, and send it to also deduct an extra $30. That is assuming that the $30 is what they wanted which is what whoever created this wants you to believe. I promise if $30 per person is all they wanted it would have been done silently and much easier coding that this elaborate and flashy maleware. So, if a hacker didn't make it who did? Well if you find the link between "Security Tool" and its legitimate owner, not just some pawn, I would bet you would shake the computer secuity/repair industry to its foundation. The above answer is pure speculation, and should be treated as such. Is it true? Who can say? Not the person who wrote it, since you'll notice they didn't provide any proof of this claim.
