Please note that effective July 1st, .Abbas Networking Services will be changing the Protection Envelope for your machines from:
Hitman Pro Anti-Malware
Cisco Umbrella DNS Filtering
To a much more robust package from WebRoot called:
WebRoot SecureAnywhere with Unity.
During the transition, you may continue to work as you normally would, and you might observe messages that indicate your Vipre Anti-Virus has been disabled, and ultimately you will no longer see the shield with the Blue "V" in it anymore. In its place you will see a green circle with a "W" in it that allow you perform scans if you desire. This new package does not just look for virused files, but looks at file behaviors, to watch for suspect activity. This is to address the newest wave of Ransomware that is propagated with fileless content. Although this package is higher priced, it is being provided to you at no extra cost.
This greater protection package is not an endorsement to begin unsafe Internet practices, as
you are the best line of defense to prevent virus activity.
Most emails are fake Phishing attacks, designed to lure you to click on a link to install a virus. The IRS will NEVER contact you by email. Your bank will NEVER contact you by email. The shipping companies will NEVER contact you by email about an undelivered package.
Never click on a link in an email from a person you do not know, and even if you do know them, be suspicious, as their email might have been compromised.
Never open an attachment from a person you do not know, and even if you do know them, you should be suspicious if you had not requested it.
Here's to a much more secure 2018 and beyond !
