Encryption worm Dorifel attacks
G Data customers are protected against this dangerous malware
"Thanks to the proactive technologies and the effective double scan method of our security solutions that use two virus scanners in parallel, our customers have been protected against Dorifel right from the start," explains Ralf Benzmüller, head of G Data Security Labs.
Three G Data security tips regarding Dorifel:
- Users should use comprehensive security solutions that permanently monitor the http traffic for malware. This ensures that PCs are effectively protected against drive-by downloads. A spam filter that gets rid of undesired emails is also a must.
- The installed operating system, browser and its components as well as the security solution installed should always be kept up-to-date. Program updates should be installed immediately to close existing security holes.
- Emails from unknown senders should always be deleted immediately. File attachments like greeting cards or videos should not be opened and links should not be called up.
