Latest news about Viruses

It's a sad fact that some people's idea of fun is to destroy information on your computer. Like vandals, they get their kicks by breaking things - in this case your computer. To help keep you up to date with the latest news about viruses, sophos a well-known producer of anti-virus software. Ginoside has no affilation with Sophos, I just want share this very useful information as a public service. There is usually a 10-12 second delay while the latest news reports are gathered. News is available on : -

  • the atest alerts - recently discovered viruses, which your current anti-virus software may not yet detect (so upgrade it now!)
  • the top ten most common viruses, the ones that you definately must ensure your current anti-virus software can detect
  • virus hoaxes - those annoying email "warnings" that encourage you to pass on worthless information to all your friends, thus filling their email box with lots of identical messages, all equally worthless.

I recommends that everyone uses a reliable virus scanner on a regular basis, usually via the software's automatic scheduling options. The software should be updated at regular intervals over the Internet (licenced copies usually include this free of charge). Ginoside does not sell anti-virus software, but we can advise our clients on its purchase and assist with installation and set-up.
