Malware Information

How They Attack

Malware is a category of malicious code that includes viruses, worms, and Trojan horses.
Destructive malware will utilize popular communication tools to spread, including worms sent through email and instant messages, Trojan horses dropped from web sites, and virus-infected files downloaded from peer-to-peer connections. Malware will also seek to exploit existing vulnerabilities on systems making their entry quiet and easy.

How Do You Know

Malware works to remain unnoticed, either by actively hiding or by simply not making its presence on a system known to the user

What To Do

Only open email or IM attachments that come from a trusted source and that are expected
Have email attachments scanned by Norton Internet Security prior to opening
Delete all unwanted messages without opening
Do not click on Web links sent by someone you do not know
If a person on your Buddy list is sending strange messages, files, or web site links, terminate your IM session

  • Scan all files with an Internet Security solution before transferring them to your system
  • Only transfer files from a well known source
  • Use Norton Internet Security to block all unsolicited outbound communication
  • Keep security patches up to date

Enhanced commenting, charts, and font functionality in the Google Docs and Sheets apps for Android

Enhanced commenting, charts, and font functionality in the Google Docs and Sheets apps for Android

Commenting is crucial to collaboration among your employees. This launch makes it easier for them to work together—even from their mobile devices. In the latest version of the Google Sheets app for Android, users can now add new and reply to existing comments. In the newest Google Docs app for Android, they can now see comments and suggestions in Print Layout view—and then resolve, close, accept, or reject those comments and suggestions—making it simpler to move between their desktop and mobile devices.

This launch also helps users better create and edit charts in the Sheets app for Android. For instance, if a user a selects a single cell and inserts a chart, we’ll automatically expand that data selection to include the immediately surrounding cells. This will make it easier for users to create robust charts with relevant information. In addition, when an employee creates a new chart, they’ll now see three recommended chart types, which we’ll suggest based on the data they’ve selected.

As a bonus, when your employees download the latest version of the Sheets app for Android, they’ll be able to view the more than 400 new fonts added to Sheets on the web earlier this week.

Smarter sorting in Google Drive ‘Recent’ view on the web

Smarter sorting in Google Drive ‘Recent’ view on the web

Google Drive lets people organize and access their content in a single, secure location. To make it easier for people to find and interact with that content on the web, today’s launch introduces a smarter sorting experience for the ‘Recent’ view in Drive.

Google drive

The new sorting experience removes the existing sorting dropdown options (‘Last modified,’ ‘Last modified by me,’ and ‘Last opened by me’) and replaces them with a dynamically-generated view based on the actions of the person using Drive. Items will continue to be segmented into time-based sections (‘Today,’ ‘Earlier this week,’ etc), and will now indicate whether each item was opened, modified, or uploaded by the user directly in the UI. The smarter sorting ensures that items acted upon by the user are more likely to be shown than items acted upon by other collaborators.

Restore deleted events in Google Calendar web

Restore deleted events in Google Calendar web

Ever deleted a calendar event by mistake and wanted to get it back – just like you can in Gmail and Drive? Now you can: today we’re adding Trash functionality to Google Calendar on the web, providing an easy way for users to view, permanently delete, or restore individual and recurring deleted calendar events. Trash puts calendar users in control by letting them quickly reverse any event mishaps, and limits escalations to Google Apps admins.

google calender -comprompt

Trash is accessible from the calendar’s dropdown menu in the “My calendars” section as well as from Calendar Settings. This functionality is available for both primary calendars and secondary calendars for which people have edit rights.

Admins can track events restored or removed from Trash within their domain using Calendar Audit logs in the Admin console.

Note: The first time a user deletes an event from a shared calendar after the launch, a one-time email notification will be sent to them from Google Calendar, explaining the Trash options and details around sharing settings.

Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange®

Updated version of Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange®

An updated version of Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange® (GAMME) is now available:

What’s New

  • Service Accounts and OAuth 2.0 tokens are now used for data migration authorization. This replaces the deprecated OAuth 1.0 protocol.
  • GAMME now uses the Gmail API for mail migration and label creation, replacing the Email Migration API v2 and Email Settings API, respectively.
  • Reserved labels are now prefixed with an underscore to ensure proper nesting in the Gmail web interface. For example, a folder named “Inbox/Receipts” is migrated as “_Inbox/Receipts.”
  • If the migration user list includes a user that doesn’t exist or there’s an authorization issue, GAMME now detects the problem in all cases and doesn’t try to migrate that user. Previously, GAMME would try each message individually and the failure would take a longer time.
  • Minor UI and logging improvements.


What’s Fixed

  • Multiple labels with names more than 225 characters long could cause a crash.
  • Messages in subfolders of Deleted Items were not being correctly marked as Trash in Gmail.
  • Messages migrated from Exchange Public Folders to Google Groups show sender as “unknown@googlegroups.com.”
  • GAMME would crash if any command line flag or setting content included “%s.”
  • GAMME would fail to migrate the sender SMTP address in some rare cases.
  • IMAP commands and responses in the logs were sometimes truncated.

Sharing on the go with Google Drive

Sharing on the go with Google Drive

Following the recent addition of the ability to request access to Google Drive files on Android, today we’re making sharing on the go even easier with several new features in the Drive apps for Android and iOS.

Sharing notifications (Android and iOS)

People using the Drive app can now choose to receive mobile notifications when someone shares a Drive item with them, allowing them to open the file or folder by simply tapping on the notification. If a file/folder owner has notifications turned on and someone requests access to their content, the owner will be notified of the request instantly on their mobile device so they can quickly grant access.

Comprompt- Google Drive-Andriod phones

 

People will be informed of this new feature the first time they use the updated versions of the Drive app, and can choose to turn it on or off in Settings.

Consistent sharing experience across platforms (iOS)
We’re implementing a more consistent sharing experience in Drive (and the Docs editor apps too!) across platforms, including the ability for people using the Drive iOS app to add custom messages to recipients directly from the app when sharing a file.

Seamless sharing to people without a Google account (Android)
Until now, a Google Account was needed to view shared files on an Android device. Now, people can do this without a Google Account just like they can on the web.

TAKE CARE OF THE THREATS THAT MATTER MOST.

Advanced protection sees what others miss.


Symantec introduces a new era of Advanced Threat Protection.

•Uncover and remediate threats from advance persistent threats to zero-day attacks across endpoints, networks and email.
•Prioritise what matters most by correlating threat intelligence across local control points with what Symantec sees globally.
•Remediate threats faster through containment of endpoints, and blocking new instances across control points, with a single click.
•Leverage existing investments without deploying new endpoint agents.
