All malware is created to commit crimes. What’s important to hackers is doing harm, causing damage, and the criminal earnings that result from those activities.
With the help of social-engineering techniques, scammers deceive Internet users by playing on their curiosity, weaknesses, and carelessness. And Dr.Web protects users against scammers, using its entire array of anti-virus technologies.
Vulnerabilities exist in every piece of software. This fact is well known to hackers, which is why they create exploits—special codes that exploit vulnerabilities to deliver malicious applications into a system or steal information. Cybercriminals most frequently exploit vulnerabilities in popular browsers, Adobe applications, and Office systems. Any software has loopholes. Zero-day vulnerabilities—those vulnerabilities not yet known to either software developers or even anti-viruses—are particularly dangerous.
Just one example!
In May 2017, during a virus outbreak, WannaCry exploited vulnerabilities in the SMB v1-3 protocol. Dr.Web detected the Trojan as soon as systems came under attack even though it had not yet been added to the Dr.Web virus database. WannaCry was stopped by the Dr.Web heuristic analyser which has been perfected and upgraded since 1994. No Dr.Web user’s data was compromised.
Each of us values the fruits of our labours and our family photos and movies. But for hackers, such files are their key to getting rich.
Dr.Web believes: A computer should serve its user rather than invisible intruders who can utilise the machine's resources remotely for their shady dealings. That’s why Dr.Web developers pay a lot of attention to providing protection against hijacking and spying.
Children constitute a special group of Internet users that is most at risk due to inexperience, credulity, curiosity, and other age-related qualities. Therefore, the ways of protecting children on the Internet are special too.
Dr.Web Security Space provides sufficient protection for safe web surfing.
Only if users do not lower their Dr.Web protection level (by disabling or suspending a module’s operation, lowering the protection level for the Preventive Protection component for short-term convenience, etc.).
