Google Image Search Virus Leads to AV Showdown


The last few months we have seen a huge spike in viruses coming from Google Image Search. Our current solution just was not cutting it, so I took a day to test out some of the better known anti-virus programs. Here are the results:

- Microsoft Security Essentials: doesn’t block any virus sites, lets installer install and infects computers. Doesn’t catch virus if it’s in a USB. System down – Boo.

- Kaspersky: blocks about 20% of the viruses sites, allows installer to run and infect computer. Doesn’t catch virus if it’s in a USB either. System down – Boo.

- ESET NOD32: blocks all sites and infected downloads. Scans USB sticks for virus, but takes a little bit. If it has a virus on the stick, it will delete it. I can force the virus install if I really try, but it actively removes parts of the virus that send data, etc. during install. No real system downtime, but still need to manually remove a file so it doesn’t give an error at start-up – Very good, but a little room for improvement.

- Symantec Endpoint Protection: not only blocks sites with infected viruses, but actually bans the IP from their computer as well for one day (can be adjusted). Blocks infected downloads and bans IP from that as well. It doesn’t remove infected files from USB sticks, but at the same time it won’t allow the install at all like NOD32 did. No effect on the system at all – Very good and less room for improvement than NOD32!

Of course the above was just testing against the Google Image Search virus that is running rampant. If we take into account all aspects (computer resources used, track record for stopping viruses, as little user interaction as possible) there was one clear winner: ESET NOD32.

There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

Symantec Endpoint Protection: not only filters sites with infected viruses, but also bans the IP address from their computer for one day (adjustable). Blocks malicious downloads and bans IP addresses. It does not erase infected files from USB sticks, but it does not enable the installation at all, as NOD32 did. There is no influence on the system - Excellent, with less space for improvement than NOD32! Continue your fantastic effort! I hope to see more intriguing factoids from your perspective in the future. Thank you so much for your contribution!

The review of antivirus solutions for the Google Image Search virus provides valuable insights into their effectiveness and impact on system performance. ESET NOD32 is a strong performer, blocking infected sites and downloads while scanning USB drives for threats. Its ability to remove virus parts during installation is noteworthy, but manual intervention might still be needed for complete cleanup. Symantec Endpoint Protection is a proactive approach that bans IPs associated with malicious activity and prevents infected downloads, but its limitation in not removing infected files from USB drives could be improved. The review emphasizes the importance of blocking threats while minimizing user interaction and system impact when choosing an antivirus solution. trucking accident lawyer
