Who do you trust to protect your digital world

ESET Nod32 Solutions, the digital protection provider, brings you its flagship online security products, ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32 Antivirus.
As the number of social media threats continue to grow exponentially in the world, profile cloning and hacking is now an everyday reality, making the need for social media security no longer a ‘nice to have’ but a necessity. Web users now expect to be able to browse their social network(s) of choice in safety, irrespective of platform or device.

Our use of the web, mobile and social platforms continues to grow, and as such, cybercriminals are capitalizing on the opportunity to spread undetectable malware that puts personal information and online identities at risk. Our technology has been built to allow web users to enjoy the benefits of exploring the web freely, with the added peace of mind that hidden malware can be easily detected and dealt with before it becomes a threat.

Features such as the Social Media Scanner and the Exploit Blocker allows for consumers to protect not just themselves from potential threats, but also their friends and followers when using popular social media sites and apps such as Facebook and Twitter.

Security features include:
· Social Media Scanner: this app extends your security to Facebook and Twitter. On Facebook, it protects your timeline, messages and newsfeed as well as your friends’ timelines. On Twitter, it protects your proļ¬le and posts from those you are following.

· Exploit Blocker adds another layer of protection against new and undiscovered malware to get one step closer to attackers. Exploit Blocker monitors the behaviour of processes, watching for suspicious activity typically associated with exploits. Once triggered, the threat is analysed and if considered suspicious the threat will be immediately blocked.

· Advanced Memory Scanner works alongside the Exploit Blocker to help protect against malware actively trying to evade detection. The scanner detects malware or viruses that would otherwise go undetected by the other security technologies on your PC or mobile device.

· Vulnerability Shield acts as an extension of the Personal Firewall in ESET Smart Security, it operates on the network level and protects against misuse of known vulnerabilities in the network.

Both, ESET NOD32 Antivirus and ESET Smart Security are officially certified for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. To download the new version 7 products and to find out more on the new technology and core features, visit ESET NOD32 Antivirus and ESET Smart Security product pages.

 An internet-wide newsbreak regarding anonymous hackers who obtained explicit photos of various Hollywood celebrities, including many A-listers like Jennifer Lawrence, and then publicised this material on the Internet, made the headlines recently.

According to experts these leaks are not new; however, this particular incident was on a massive scale. From the very beginning there was an assumption that perhaps some photos were stolen directly from celebrities’ accounts in the Apple’s iCloud. Is this possible? If so, what can be done to avoid the theft?

To avoid possible issues with private data leaks via computers, mobile devices or cloud services, Security Researchers recommend the following measures;

1. Use strong passwords, unique to each account.

2. Use endpoint security solutions to protect your devices, because every device is a gateway to your cloud storage.

3. Enable and use two-factor authentication services whenever available.

4. Sort out which information should or should not be stored in the cloud. Your most sensitive information – whether relating to your personal or professional life – should never be trusted to the cloud.

5. It’s easy for a mobile device to be lost or stolen, so make sure the device itself has no sensitive data stored on it. If this is impossible, make sure there is appropriate encryption in place.

6. If you’re about to store highly sensitive information (including photos and videos), double check that your device doesn’t automatically upload data into the cloud.

7. Before sharing your personal data or allowing someone to take a picture of you, make sure that the other device is sufficiently secure to keep your private data safe from inadvertent exposure.
This alleged incident proves that privacy is increasingly fragile nowadays, for celebs as well as business operators. Although cloud-based file storage services have long been popular among Internet users, the indisputable convenience of such services is at least partly offset by some significant risks.
