DOUBLE MALWARE ALERT!
The Vobfus worm and the Beebone Trojan families operate in close collaboration with each other. Once either one of these vicious programs infects a system, it downloads the other software program as well, triggering an endless, self-perpetuating loop of malware infections. The cyclical relationship between Vobfus and Beebone allows them to constantly update each other with new variants. As a team of so called ‘Downloaders’ they manage to easily elude antivirus software, as they alternatively download different variations of each other as well as other strains of malicious programs from their command. Be wary of external links from suspicious sources!

THE IMPORTANCE of a FIREWALL
While antivirus software is an essential component of an effective protection against viruses and malicious content lurking in the web, it is not sufficient on its own! Antivirus technology uses inherent heuristic methods to detect quarantine and delete identified threats. However, no operating system is ever completely immune and impervious to a cyber attack. A second line of defense, in addition to antivirus software, can significantly reinforce an individual’s or a company’s network security: A FIREWALL!
Firewalls protect the perimeter of a network by monitoring and filtering all network traffic – desired and undesired. Once unwanted traffic has been identified, they create barriers to thwart potential attackers and malicious programs, thereby shielding the network from unauthorized access. Furthermore, users can configure their firewall’s security settings to accommodate their personal/corporate privacy needs. Excessively restrictive settings may prohibit a user’s internet access entirely. Finding the right balance is the key: Amplify your/your company’s network security while maximizing your own/your employee’s productivity!
Without a firewall, potential attackers can easily identify your computer as a vulnerable victim, surreptitiously enter your network and compromise the system’s security. Don’t make yourself an easy target for cyber threats! If you need help installing a firewall or advice to determine what firewall program is right for you just call KARLS TECHNOLOGY computer repair. Let our experienced engineers outfit your system with the best firewall and antivirus programs.

Another Annoying Computer Issue plaguing many technology users
Keeping many Tabs opened at once allows for advanced Web navigation. However, this can also cause significant confusion and frustration when all of a sudden an unidentified sound is coming from the computer, yet the source cannot be located. Oftentimes, this problem can be fixed by going through all the opened tabs one by one and scanning the websites for the annoying audio until the source has been found; a very tedious task. In some cases, though, the sound may stem from spurious commercials triggered by spyware or other malicious programs.
