ESET awarded highest score in AV-Comparatives Performance Test. ESET declared as to be agile, lightweight, with the smallest impact on system performance.

Although, one must always take these performance rankings with a pinch of salt; still if the tests conducting body is reputed, then such performance tests do offer some information on what to buy and What what not to. Antivirus and internet security maker, ESET, has just revealed its award-winning scores for its latest product release of ESET Smart Security in the latest AV-Comparatives Performance Test.

AV-Comparatives awarded the new version of ESET Smart Security with the Advanced+ Award. Details of the test show that ESET achieved the highest score for performance, outperforming all contenders, including AVG, Avira, BitDefender, F-Secure, Kaspersky, McAfee and Sophos, and Trend Micro. In short, the award is for ESET Smart Security’s ability of not affecting your PC’s performance (speed at which your compute runs), even when it’s securing your PC with high degree of effectiveness.

AV-Comparatives focused on testing the impact that security software can have on system performance when specific tasks, such as downloading, opening, copying, encoding and archiving files, as well as installing and launching applications, are performed.

AV-Comparatives has used several own test cases and PC Mark Tests, an industry-recognized performance test. The award is based on AV-Comparative’s  assessment of the overall impact results with default settings under Windows 8.1 64-Bit.

According to ESET, the ESET Smart Security delivers multiple layers of Internet protection and keeps your identity safe with Anti-Theft, Personal Firewall and Anti-Phishing. This ESET security suite boasts brand new technology such as Botnet Protection that protects against infiltration by botnet malware as well as Enhanced Exploit Blocker that blocks attacks specifically designed to evade antivirus detection.

Botnets are Rising. Essential facts about Botnet malware. How to defend your PC from Botnets.

Some years ago, I observed that my Computer used to endlessly keep processing even when I was not doing anything. To my fault I was not having any antivirus on my connected PC at that time. Later I realised that not only my PC was being used by some malicious network to spread spams and do other hideous acts; my bandwidth also shot to the sky. On some research I realised that, some fraudsters online had hijacked my connected PC and made it a part of their Botnet, or Bot network. In short, instead of investing on a new computer connected to the web, they  used some malicious malware to convert my computer into their robot or bot, added it to their network, and used my PC’s resources for their tasks. Not to say I have re-format my computer’s hard drive and install a good genuine antivirus with internet security.

According to ESET, a global pioneer in proactive protection, the Botnet attacks are on an increase. The security maker calls Botnets as 21st century’s most costly security threat.

What is a Botnet ?

The word botnet is made up of two words: bot and net. Bot is short for robot, which runs automatically, net comes from network, a group of PC systems that are linked together. A botnet is a network of infected computers, where the network is used by the malware to spread.

Use of Botnets:

Botnets are used by malicious actors for various purposes, ranging from information theft to sending spam. Various types of people operate botnets like criminals use them to steal banking credentials and commit fraud, pranksters use them to spy on webcams and extort their victims.

Powerful Botnets detected in recent years

Operation Windigo, Stuxnet, Conficker and Flashback – are just a few of the most well-known botnets.

How to find out or Detect a Botnet infection :

The size of the attack is much larger than the 700 domains and nearly 10,000 users have hit these domains and been exposed to the malicious advertisements. This attack finds a victim to run malvertising campaign. The attack is extremely effective and delivers a unique malicious payload for every visitor, packaged with a legitimate media player, and a piece of malware which is tailored to each user. Malicious software is created for all major operating systems. Regrouping infected devices into networks, or botnets, is feasible for every platform.

Risks for home users and businesses:

  • The risks associated with botnets are exactly the same as the risks associated with malicious software in general.
  • One can have sensitive information stolen from the electronic device, such as intellectual property, blueprints, or passwords giving access to sensitive resources (for example online games).
  • Infected computers can also be used to overload servers or send spam.
  • It is important to know that once a computer is infected, it really doesn’t belong to its owner anymore; it is operated and used by someone who can be on the other end side of the globe, potentially conducting all kinds of illegal activities.
  • The line between corporate and personal devices and networks is very blurry. We all bring personal devices to work and vice-versa, botnets are threat to both types of users.

Effective approach to fighting botnets

1) We can spot infections in network traffic, in the memory of infected computers or on their hard drive.

2) On the other hand, the most effective approach to fighting botnets is education, by raising the awareness around this threat.

3) Everyone should realize that if their computer is infected, it might be used to harm others. Thus, whenever an infected computer is found, it needs to be taken offline and cleaned as quickly as possible.

4) Finally, collaboration between users, research groups, internet service providers and law enforcement agencies greatly helps in fighting botnets and bringing the people who operate them to justice.

5) Strict security and monitoring; identifying and stopping botnet attacks should be easier in Business networks. On the other hand, there is more sensitive data to be stolen from corporate networks.

Installing a Genuine antivirus with Internet security must always be the first step to keep one’s Computer secure.

Ever Since Xiaomi arrived in India, it is being talked about. Not only for its smartphone hardware at unrealistically low prices but also for how it sells its smartphones. The fact that Xiaomi sells limited number of smartphones at a time, that too from online portal only, hence people are skeptical about it and lending their sensitive information to Xiaomi. Just like everything else, Xiaomi also seems to be hit by social network rumors let loose by the rivals. That’s why Xiaomi has released a clarification regarding its privacy policy.

Read it below:

IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION REGARDING PRIVACY: XIAOMI INDIA

Bangalore, October 27, 2014: There have been reports about an IAF circular claiming that Xiaomi phones are a security threat. While we are attempting to reach Indian authorities to learn specifics, we would like to clarify a few points to assure our users that we treat your privacy seriously.

  1. We provide opt-in secure Internet services that greatly benefit users

We offer various opt-in Internet services that bring great user benefits, are free of charge, and require personal data to be stored in the cloud. For example:

  • Mi Cloud enables users to back up their data as well as sync it to other devices
  • Cloud Messaging allows users of Mi devices to exchange text messages free of carrier charges by routing messages via IP instead of carrier’s SMS gateway

These services are optional (opt-in). Users can turn them on and off at any time. Users can also opt to use similar services from other Internet companies instead, such as Google, Whatsapp, Dropbox and others.

  1. We do not collect user data without permission

We do not collect any data associated with services such as Mi Cloud and Cloud Messaging until the user provides explicit consent by turning on the corresponding service(s). Even after users have turned on these services, they can turn them off at any point of time.

We take rigorous precautions to ensure that all data is secured when uploaded to Xiaomi servers and is not stored beyond the time required.

  1. We use very high encryption and security standards to protect user data
  • We encrypt data using AES-128 standard before storing, which makes it practically impossible for anyone to steal this information
  • We protect user passwords and identifiers such as IMEI number using cryptographic one-way hash functions *before* they’re uploaded, which means we never actually receive the original information
  • No single person, including Xiaomi employees, can decrypt user data stored in Mi Cloud, even if they get access to the hard drives
  • We use extremely strict access control policies with multiple authorizations being required for engineers building services that access any personal data
  • All access to servers is logged and audited

 

  1. We are moving our Indian users’ data to servers outside of China, and to India in 2015

Since early 2014, we have been migrating our services and corresponding data for Indian users from our Beijing data centers to Amazon AWS data centers in Singapore and USA. Parts of this migration will be completed by the end of October, and all of it will be completed by the end of 2014. In 2015, we plan to launch a local data center in India to serve the needs of (and store data for) our Indian users.

These efforts help significantly improve the performance of our services and also provide some peace of mind for users in India, ensuring that we treat their data with utmost care and the highest privacy standards.

  1. The concerns raised by F-Secure have been fully addressed

We believe the advisory circular issued by IAF is based on events about 3 months back. It refers to the F-Secure test done on the Redmi 1S in July 2014 about the activation of our Cloud Messaging service (which enables users to send text messages for free, similar to other popular messaging services).

We immediately addressed the concerns raised, which was directly acknowledged by F-Secure 4 days later.

Please refer to this post by F-Secure confirming their concerns were addressed:

First and Only Enterprise Class SSD Solution from Viking for unused DRAM sockets. Advanced storage performance, reliability, quality for Enterprise Class.

Enterprise Class SSD for unused DRAM sockets

ONLYSSD, the exclusive high end SSD Portal, has recently announced the launch of Viking SATADIMM™ SSD. SATADIMM™ is the first and only enterprise class SSD to be designed in a DIMM form factor making it possible to deploy SSDs in unused DRAM sockets (those DRAM sockets to DRAm Slots on your motherboard, which you’re not using).

 

SATADIMM is the ideal boot drive for high-performance servers and storage appliances delivering just the right capacity without sacrificing drive bays that are better suited for mass storage. As part of the renowned brand, Viking continues the legacy by delivering an exceptional mainstream solution with advanced storage performance, reliability and quality that meets the demands of today’s client applications.

 

Mr Gulbir Bhatia, Managing Director at OnlySSD.com said,

SSD technology is relatively young in IT parlance and is still finding the right place to fit and the right solution for IT managers. SATADIMM provides an additional 29% ROI improvement to existing data center investments. This is why SATADIMM is such a ground-breaking concept for deploying SSD. SATADIMM uses revolutionary packaging and system integration to provide a proven SSD solution to real datacenter problems with disruptive new value.

 

Booting and caching are just two applications where the removability of a hard drive form factor can be problematical. Imagine the ramifications of a degraded or downed system resulting from an operator removing the boot or cache drive by mistake. The ultra-reliable SATADIMM is safely stored away inside the server ensuring this sort of catastrophe is easily avoidable. This high-performance and high-availability SSD offers significant increases to typical server capacity and performance at a fraction of the volumetric density of a 2.5-inch SSD. It’s a simple advantage: a server with SATADIMM will have greater capacity and performance than a server with storage only in drive bays.

 

SATADIMM’s optimized performance and endurance makes it perfect as a cache solution to accelerate applications, especially VMware. In a storage array appliance, SATADIMM provides a 5x advantage in performance and capacity over using 2.5-inch SSDs. As with every technology, it is not the technology that matters but how its deployment helps optimize business operations and the user’s experience.

 

Price, Warranty and Availability
