Q: What pain points do you experience with cyber security?

Hi wonderful people!

I am looking to start a cyber security business and, to help determine what the focus of the business should be, I would like to know what pain points you experience in your day to day work in terms of managing cyber security?

Alternatively, what cyber security services or software would you like to see that would make your personal or professional life easier??

Thanks in advance for your time!

Preferred Solution: What pain points do you experience with cyber security?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I have become one of the many with a PC infected by 2 fake security scams (Cyber Protection Center and Cyber Security). I purchased Spyware Doctor recently, thinking that this would get rid of it, since the free scan did identify them, or so I thought, but it has failed. Can someone possibly advise me on how to get rid of them please? My computer has slowed down a lot, and the constant pop-up messages are really annoying.

I have a HJT log file, below.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi,

I have a friend's laptop that he asked me to help with and it is beyond my ability...i asked him to do a windows update last week as it was about a year out of date, he said whilst doing this an icon appeared to install this "cyber Securty" software - as a regular (not so competent) laptop user he installed this because it looked like regular windows sw.

It has since then about a week from install began to try and scan his HDD everyday, saying there are lots of Trojans etc...and these need removing. From that point his whole Internet was blocked as this was showing as a "trojan" through Cyber Security.

So far i have removed unceccessary files he did not want, booted into safe mode and proceeded to scan 3 times with Super antispyware. Unfortunately as you will know this has not removed the SW but seemed to have removed 45 trojans.

I have been advised that Combofix is a brilliant spyware removal tool, however after signing upto this forum and reading around, i need some help from the Gods?

Please could someone assist?
N.B.

This is an old laptop running XP Proffesional, SP2 with a 1.4 Pentium ®
As said from earlier i have to use my own PC to use the net etc as the laptop will not work, i am currently using a USB stick to transfer data.
There is at the moment no anti virus or firewalls (other than windows) runing, i have removed all of these and only booted in safe mode.
Thanks again

I went to my comp today and found flashing virus warnings. I notice that there is a new Icon on my desktop called Cyber Security. I suspected that it must be a 'nasty' so tried to remove it with 'Remove programmes' It won't let me. I searched on google and found a site that gives instructions on manual removal but it involves changing the registry and all sorts, I'm not confident in doing that without guidance.

Can anyone help me get rid of it?

A:Cyber Security malware: is it gone?

I think its self explanatory "quarantined & deleted successfully" but its always good to have a second opinion so why not download SuperAntiSpyware and do another scan. Make sure you update it and do the full scan.

You might want to ask someone how to go about deleting the registry values left behind by your spyware but i am not the person to be giving you that kind of advice. Good Luck

It appears one of my company's computers has been infected by the Cyber Security virus. I tried to remove everything to the best of my ability using the directions given at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-cyber-security and using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Unfortunately, we are still having issues using Internet Explorer (or even Firefox). Specifically, it will not always work, especially if you try to bring up sites like Microsoft or any other places that will help with removing viruses (e.g., Panda Security). I've tried all that I can think of on my own but to no avail. Is this a sign that Cyber Security hasn't been completely removed or is it infected with another virus?

First off, thanks for all the help so far. The search engine has been very helpful. Here is where I stand. First off just to be able to run the MBAM I had to rename it from an exe to a scr and run the scan through safe mode(running vista). Going through all the steps allowed me to see the scanning as it was taking place, before I could not. I ran the quick scan in safe mode, but after it rebooted(it asked me to) the shield icon was still there as well as the popups for the purchase of their "product". Then i ran a full scan which took about 30 minutes. This found "no malicious threats". The quick scan came up with four to remove which I did. I rebooted once again, but the icon is still there. The initial popups are still there, but everything else seems to work as pre malware. I can visit websites with ease and quickness as before, but I'm not sure if my computer is safe yet. And if it is not I would not want to just ignore this. I hope someone can help me. I am not very computer literate at all. It took me a while to figure out how to go about renaming the MBAM and putting my computer in safe mode just to be able to run the scan. Not the sharpest crayon in the box as far as computers are concerned. I just want to say thank you again, and hope someone can point me in the right direction. Thank you.

Hi and welcome to BC Let's start with Dr.WebBefore we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.Please download DrWeb-CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current versionRead the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.The Express scan will automatically begin.

I fell victim to the cyber security moneypak virus. I wasn't able to get access by safe mode or any of the other options. It would start safe mode for just a second then restart over and over. I tried the option of not restarting upon system failure, but that didn't work either. I downloaded anvisoft rescue disk to a usb flash drive from another computer and it seemed to have removed the virus, but now I have a white screen that loads over top of my desktop. It shows the desktop for about 1 or 2 seconds before the white screen takes over. It also shows it briefly when I shut down. Anyone have any ideas on how I might remove this, or is it even removeable. I have a dell laptop, windows 7 upgraded from vista 32 bit. I inherited it from my son when he went Mac.

Your fingerprint can do more than unlock your phone. In just a few years, the tips of your phalanges may be the most powerful, speedy and safe tool to protect and access a trove of personal data.


It's the master key to the safe of your private life. And there's nothing stopping police from taking it.

Constitutional law hasn't yet caught up with the state of modern technology, experts say, and police are taking increasingly extreme measures to access our fingerprints ? going as far as asking a 3-D printing lab in Michigan to print a finger capable of unlocking a dead victim's phone...

How biometrics could revolutionize criminal law:

Biometric authentication is the practice of using a human characteristic like fingerprints or the iris of the eye to verify your identity and secure your device. The technology is becoming more and more popular.

To help lawmakers stay in touch with tech, Electronic Frontier Foundation staff attorney Andrew Crocker thinks the Fifth Amendment needs to not only protect against forced decryption using a passcode, but also our fingerprints, which both have the potential to provide one with the same personal information...

Possibly the site I got it from was bogus, or maybe I picked up the malware somewhere else. Now, a day later, I am experiencing this Cyber Security malware which can't be uninstalled or disabled. When trying to disable it, I get the message:"This version of cyber security is for evaluating purposes only. The removal features are disabled." My laptop is an HP Pavilion dv6449us, and Im running Vista SP2...I was able to generate the DDS logs and Attach.txt, but the Root Repeal would not complete after 5 hours, so no report here. Is this normal? How long should it take to complete and generate a report? It seemed to lock up when scanning the c:/Windows/system32/Gather^1.VBS, showing a scan status of "Locked to the wind...

A:Cyber Security malware infection

One addtional thing, after attempting to run the but the Root Repeal, which never finshed (it just idled for several hours), explorer.exe seems to have gotten corrupted. I now get the "Windows Explorer Has Stopped Working" message box, followed by "Windows Explorer is Restarting". These two pop ups loop endlessly and prevent ny command, even in Safe Mode. I tried to restore my laptop to a previous restore point, back to October 4, but the explorer launch errors still occur!

I followed the steps mentioned in Remove Cyber Security (Uninstall Guide)Posted by Grinler on October 9, 2009 @ 11:56 AM ? to try to remove this infection. I downloaded Procexp.exe (renamed it to iexplore.txt) and killed "cs". I then downloaded/updated and ran Malware Bytes. It seemed sucessful. (First MBAM Log Below.) But on the restart Cyber Security showed up again. I tried the whole process again but this time MBAM did not find any threats. I ran DDS and it is below the MBAM Log. I am also attaching Attach.txt and Ark.txt. Note the DDS, Attach and Ark reports were generated after MBAM was unsucessful while "cs"was not killed. Please help. Thanks.

Can also be ICE Cyber Crime Center Ransomeware.
 
Easy solution.
 
If you can boot into safe mode, do a restore to an earlier restore point.
 
This worked for me on Win7 64 bit.

Hi there, I am based in Australia, and work with a contractor in the Philippines, she is in her home office. We are both working on stand alone PC's connected to our own private internet. We access cloud software to work on the same file. I believe the cloud software is secure. What I was wondering was is there any cyber risk involved if my contractor is working with confidential information in Phillippines on a secure cloud platform ie xero? If not, is there any online system (network or other) that will make the data flow more secure? I need to be 100% sure that my clients data would be secure, and I am just not sure how to do this in a cost effective way. Any suggestions?? Many thanks, Jodie.
