Beware! First Week of April Brings Spyware Infections
Beware! First Week of April Brings Spyware Infections

 
March 29, 2010 10:40AM
Expect Many New Spyware Infections the First Week of April -- April Fool's Day typically brings an increase in spyware and malware infections.
 



EUGENE, OR (March 25, 2010) -– SUPERAntiSpyware.com, a Pacific Northwest developer of state-of-the-art anti-spyware solutions, wants to remind computer users that the first week of April typically brings an increase in new spyware infections. It's become something of an annual tradition that causes havoc for computer users, lost productivity, increased expenses, and overall inconvenience.

This period of increased spyware activity is a good time to remind computer users to be extra vigilant:

Don't open emails –- especially files or attachments –- from people you don't know.

Don't be fooled by "scareware" tactics. Know what software you are using, and familiarize yourself with how it delivers warnings and alerts.

If you're considering giving your social networking activities a break, now might be a good time. No one will miss you if you take a week off.

Be extra cautious before visiting websites that you haven't visited before. Think before you click!

Run multiple layers of security software. There are many free and effective solutions that will co-exist well with each other. Remember, a single solution may not be enough, especially during this period of increased spyware activity.

SUPERAntiSpyware, downloaded over 30 million times, has been designed to act as your primary security solution or to complement an existing solution, providing an excellent layered approach to protection.

"Spyware and malware authors have become more creative, and there are many new infections that have greatly reduced the effectiveness of traditional detection and removal techniques," said Nick Skrepetos, founder of SUPERAntiSpyware.com. "These new infections render existing anti-spyware and anti-virus solutions ineffective."

Skrepetos added, "To combat this trend, SUPERAntiSpyware has released its SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Edition (www.superantispyware.com/portable) and SUPERAntiSpyware Online Safe Scan. Both tools have been developed specifically to fight this new class of challenging infections and are available free for home users at www.superantispyware.com."

SUPERAntiSpyware Free and Professional Editions will detect and remove millions of the toughest of spyware infections. SUPERAntiSpyware definitions are updated daily to protect users against the latest zero-day threats.

SUPERAntiSpyware is used by computer technicians worldwide to clean end user systems at companies such as Dell, HP, and AT&T. SUPERAntiSpyware is also recommended on popular security forums such as MajorGeeks.com, Wilders Security, and thousands more.

SUPERAntiSpyware Professional is priced at $29.95 for the general public and includes updates for one year. SUPERAntiSpyware is available for immediate download from www.superantispyware.com. SUPERAntiSpyware is supported by Windows 2000, Media Center, 2003, Vista, XP, and Windows 7.
