About perishability

Malware files are often disguised as ordinary image, audio, and video files. [Неуёмный Обыватель]

About perishability

Post bases - they are bases, with all their pros and cons. On the one hand, there is the convenience of storing and accessing letters, and on the other, the existing (always!) Restrictions on the size of mail databases. And then there is (very unfortunate! Or by the way?) Closed structure of most databases (a big minus from the point of view of antivirus and a big plus from the point of view of email security confidentiality). All sorts of different malware did not fail to take advantage of this.
So the mail always needs constant supervision and try not to make a CRM database from mail, especially a corporate one.
And the antivirus will help us! [GREEN]

Malicious injections

Preventive Protection is the bodyguard of your operating system. Always keep it up and running. [Niuxin]

System business

Use the device manufacturer's official firmware and run a full system scan. It's better not to buy outsourced devices. [Niuxin]

Malicious injections

"Adblocking extensions with more than 300,000 active users have been surreptitiously uploading user browsing data and tampering with users’ social media accounts thanks to malware its new owner introduced a few weeks ago, according to technical analyses and posts on Github.

Nano Adblocker and Nano Defender aren’t the only extensions that have been reported to tamper with Instagram accounts. User Agent Switcher, an extension that had more than 100,000 active users until Google removed it earlier this month is reported to have done the same thing."

System business

Not so smart cheap Chinese smart phones on eBay. They are so bad and so amateurish that the phones are hardly usable they are slow with just one user and virtually impossible to use with two users the second user being the malware.

You can feel the malware trying to compete with you for the processor. Some of them have crude chip level spyware that you can monitor if you put them on a computer network. They call home and If you then follow the IP address they become very abusive in Chinese English.

The sad thing is if anybody is that hard up for money that they need to purchase one of these cheap Chinese smart phones then they are not the kind of people who have money to be stolen. It is sad. eBay you find them on eBay.
