THE BUSINESS TUNER
What are Zero Day Threats ???????
It is a virus or spyware or malware or scumware that is so new that the anti-virus or firewall program
you are using does not know about the threat, and will not stop the infection of your computer.
All anti-virus programs work by using the signature of known threats.
When an email is downloaded or a program run, your security programs compares the potential threat to a list of known threats.
If the new addition to your computer is a threat the destructive action is stopped.
It works just the same as your body, when you have your annual flu shot.
You are protected from this year’s flu virus, not every flu virus in the world.
How do you protect yourself ?
1) Run the signature update program
for the anti-virus and firewall programs,
installed on your computer before downloading
email or surfing the net.
If you are an all day business
computer user you should signature update three times per day.
If your computer is switched off or hibernated over night
always update anti-virus signatures before
downloading email or surfing the net.
2) Run a Zero Day Threat protection program.
We recommend Malwarebytes Premium as a Zero Day Threat protection program
We also recommend as minimum you have a Router, Anti-Virus and
Software Fire Wall plus
Spyware removal programs
Adware Spyware removal programs
