Tips for a cyber safe summer


Vacation season is here! Time has come to take rest from work/school and enjoy some free time. You wouldn't want something like malware bothering you and destroying your fun time, right? In that case, here are some tips to ensure your peace of mind this summer.

1. Fight the Viruses and Malware

Install the necessary antivirus and antimalware software on your phone and laptop before you leave for vacation. Keep it updated and run it regularly. Make sure that your operating system is fully updated as well.

To protect your PC go here.
To protect your phone go here.

2. Avoid public Wi-Fi

Even though everyone likes free Wi-Fi, the best solution would be not to use it at all. However, we know that for some of you this could be very difficult so at least try to use it only when truly necessary. If you wish to connect to your company network, it would be best to do it via virtual private network. Turn off your Wi-Fi when you are not using it because your phone can unexpectedly connect to a hostile network through a saved Wi-Fi profile.

3. Create Stronger Passwords

Many people use the same password for different accounts to avoid confusion. However, this way you become an easy target for hackers. Come up with different and more complicated passwords or use services that can help you manage all passwords. You can also change your passwords and use these new ones on vacation. Later, upon returning home you can change them back to those you were using before you left.

4. Encrypt your mobile device

Since we are talking about passwords let's not forget your phone. Protect it with a PIN or encrypt it. This will add an additional layer of protection if you phone get stolen.



5. Use GPS-based device location service

If you lose your phone, try to use GPS-based device location service that should be provided by your vendor. You can also use apps like ''Find Device'' or ''Find My iPhone'', depending on whether you are using an Android or an iPhone.

6. Avoid using public computers to log in to your accounts

Never use public computers in public places like cafes, lobbies, airports etc. However, if you must use them then you must never forget to log out of your accounts when you finish. Don't just press x to exit. Another reason why you should avoid public computers is that hackers often install a keylogger on these computers, which records every keystroke you typed and then transmits all your passwords and other sensitive information back to the hacker.

7. Be careful what you share on social networks

We understand you wish to post beautiful and fun photos from your vacation. But think twice about what you really share because this way criminals learn that your house is empty. Don't announce plans and details about your vacation in advance. Always be very discrete when posting personal information on social media. You can always use settings to limit how and with whom you share information.

8. Known the local laws regarding online behaviour

Some activities such as alcohol drinking or openly declaring negative opinions about politics and politicians are illegal in some countries. If you share this online, you might get arrested.

9. Turn off auto location and check-in applications

Don’t make it easy for criminals to easily identify where you are.

10. Always bring your charger

Only charge your devices directly with a connection to an outlet. Don’t charge your devices by plugging into any foreign device. This will avoid transferring malware from an unknown charging station or a computer.

11. Arm your mobile device or laptop with an anti-keylogger

Having your data stolen, especially during your vacation, is definitely not your dream scenario. If we go back in the near past, we can localize many keylogger attacks on Android devices and laptops that made the security alerts for everyone users go high up! Therefore get your anti-keylogger protection for mobile device here or for your laptop here.

Results show horrific lack of malware knowledge!


Many of us have probably heard the word malware many times. And many of us believe we are educated enough not to fall victim to malware. However, recent studies showed that not only non-professionals but professionals as well are often not able to recognize the malicious tricks of latest threats.

Disturbing results

Recent surveys showed that even though 93% of respondents correctly identified Trojan and its behaviour, 77% were unable to correctly state the behaviour of a virus. Many confused worms with viruses and rootkits with bootkits. 




These are disturbing results because in order to protect our PCs and mobile devices correctly, it is very important to know how each malware behaves. If malware is recognized as a worm, it is important to know how this worm behaves and what it really does. Many malicious programs today behave as benign even when they go through a scan, which is why it is necessary to be extra cautious.

However, some experts say that the depressing results were to be expected. The pace at which malware evolves today and the innovative techniques of hackers that improve every day make it difficult for both everyday people and professionals to make clear distinctions between different types of threats. 

Many respondents did not know that some types of malware can be undetected by traditional antivirus. 

60% knew what phishing is in theory but when they received a phishing email, they were unable to recognize the threat. Most of professionals are ashamed to admit they experienced a data breach.

Educate yourself!

Superficial knowledge about malware is not enough today. To protect yourself and not to be manipulated, you need to learn and educate yourself as much as you can. Antivirus and antimalware protection are a must for both your PC and phone. However, you need to be aware of what kinds of threats exist in the online world. You can find online courses that will teach you how to recognize even the sneakiest threats. Also, you can read many articles and books online that will keep you posted about the latest attacks. 

Once you install your antivirus and antimalware protection, try to explore it a little bit and learn more about its features, what they really mean and how they really work. Try to find examples of different threat attacks in the world and learn from it. Also, follow necessary steps that we wrote about in one of our previous blog posts that can help you avoid malware coming back to your PC. Check it out here.

The best thing about using Zemana AntiMalware or Zemana AntiLogger as your protection is that it is very easy to use, with simple user interface. This way, no matter how old you are, you will be able to understand all instructions and stay safe without any complications or misunderstandings.

Petya Ransomware: More dangerous than WannaCry?


Nobody has fully recovered from the last WannaCry ransomware attack and now there are new attacks spreading throughout the world. This time it is a threat called Petya ransomware.

What is Petya ransomware?

Petya ransomware was a malware that was created in 2006. Now, it has been modified and the new variant has been used in the recent attacks. It locks users' PC and encrypts files. The hackers behind the attacks ask for ransom in bitcoin in order to decrypt users' files.

However, experts claim that Petya is not a traditional ransomware. It is more dangerous than WannaCry because it is a specific type of ransomware. Attackers ask for ransom in Bitcoin making you believe that your files will be decrypted. But this time, it not the case. Petya's source code revealed that it is impossible to recover and decrypt files once infected.

It can infect your PC in more ways than WannaCry or any other ransomware. It is very different from the common ransomware. It installs itself to start before Windows, causes a BSOD in Windows, and after Windows restarts, it mimics a file repair, but in reality, it encrypts the MFT(Master File Table). This type of threat will be harder to overcome. This is a cyber attack meant to sabotage and destroy users' PC.

Recent attacks

The attacks listed below are just some of the attacks, so it is not a surprise that Petya caused chaos around the world.

- Russia's oil company
- major Ukranian banks (including the Central bank) and companies
- the airport in Kiev
- British advertising agency
- U.S. pharmaceutical company Merck
- Cadbury chocolate plant in Australia
- a major shipping firm in Netherlands

How to protect yourself

Petya ransomware is a specific type of a cyber attack, which means that you will need to take extra measures in order to protect your PC.

The first thing you need to do is update your operating system. An update will improve the stability of your PC and will not be an easy target. You also need to have an antivirus and antimalware software installed on your PC and mobile phone.

Because Petya works totally different than other ransomware, most generic ransomware protection was totally ineffective against this threat and failed to protect end users worldwide. 

But according to MRG Effitas, our Zemana AntiMalware proved to be the best protection against Petya ransomware. Check out the below image:



You can see the full report here.

However, few experts believe that this worldwide spreading infection is only disguised as ransomware. It uses the NSA's Eternal Blue Exploit and has affected many European countries including Ukraine, Poland and Germany. However, other continents were not spared as well.

Nevertheless, no one should take the risk so everyone should take needed precautions asap! 

All Zemana products use the same technology designed to protect you from both traditional and new types of malware. So, whether you have Zemana AntiLogger or Zemana AntiMalware, your PC will remain protected.

As we have mentioned in our previous blogs, experts predicted a high number of ransomware attacks in 2017 targeting both your PC and your mobile device. It seems that their predictions are already coming true. Protect yourself in time with Zemana AntiMalware and enjoy the online world carefree.

Stay safe with Zemana!

Tips how to prevent any type of malware coming back to your PC


Most of us have had some kind of a problem with malware in our cyber daily life. We all know how dangerous they can be. But the most annoying thing about malware is that often they come back. Here are some tips on how to protect your PC and prevent different infections from causing you stress again.

1. You must have an antivirus protection

Your antivirus is the first wall of defense against malware. Even though antiviruses are not always able to detect new threats, they are still necessary on your PC.

2. Update your operating systems and browsers

Don't leave updating of your operating systems and browsers for later! Always do it in time because malware can find its way in through vulnerabilities. You can also make sure that you have automatic updating turned on.

3. Use Windows Firewall

Keep in mind that using two firewalls might cause interference with one another.

4. Regularly scan your PC with your antivirus and antimalware software

Unfortunately, many of us forget to do it but this is very important. You should find time for it once a week. Don't forget to scan your phone regularly as well. You have also a scheduled scan option.
Below you can see where to find it on Zemana AntiMalware user interface.



5. Connect to a secure network

Today almost everyone uses Wireless Internet Connection. Even though many of us like open networks, it is much safer to connect to a network that requires a password. Also, make sure to create a strong password for your Wi-fi network. This will prevent hackers (and your neighbours :p) from easily hacking into your Wi-fi.

6. Be careful what you click on!

Don't click on every link that you see on websites or in your emails. If you are really curious about the link, hover over it and see where it is going to take you. Better safe than sorry!

7. Never use the same password

Try using different passwords for different accounts. If you use the same password, hackers might easily figure it out and steal it. Make sure to mix lower case, upper case, different numbers and letters in order to create a strong password.

8. Be cautious when reading emails

Approach emails that contain links or attachments with caution. If a message or what is being requested from you in the email seems suspicious, do not click on the provided links. So next time you receive an email saying you won 100.000$ just reject or delete such an email.

9. Don't trust every pop-up window

Some pop-up windows will try to convince you to buy or download something. It might offer free system scan or show an advertisement. Your browser will probably offer you the option to block these pop ups, which you should definitely do. If not, then try to close it using the Task Manager (press Ctrl-Alt-Delete) because sometimes pressing the x button is a trap.



10. Antimalware protection is necessary 

Invest in your additional layer of protection because it will not only keep you safe from traditional viruses but from other different types of advanced malware types as well and mostly these are available on the web now.

Install and use Zemana AntiMalware because it will not conflict with your existing antivirus software. Ranked as the best ransomware protection on the market by MRG Effitas, Zemana AntiMalware will keep you safe from massive ransomware and malware attacks 24/7.

Keep in mind these tips in your fight against malware. Don't forget that being aware and informed makes a big difference!

Stay safe with Zemana!

Antivirüs ve Anti-malware arasındaki fark (Hangisini kurmalıyım?)


Uzun lafın kısası: İkisine de ihtiyacınız var! Ne, Nasıl yani? Sakin olun, açıklıyoruz.

Antivirüs ve anti-malware arasındaki fark nedir?

Çoğunuz antivirüs ve anti-malware kelimelerini sıkça duymuşsunuzdur. Hele ki son günlerde yayılan WannaCry fidyeci zararlısıyla daha sık duyar oldunuz (Fidyeci zararlılarından kurtulmanın yoluna buradan ulaşabilirsiniz). Muhtemelen bu kavram kargaşasında kaybolmuş, anti virüs ve anti-malware arasında fark olmadığını düşünmüş olabilirsiniz. Anti-malware ile antivirüsün aynı anlama geldiğini düşünüp bilgisayarınıza anti-malware kurmamanız gerektiğini düşünüyorsanız yanılıyorsunuz. Yazının devamında antivirüs ve anti-malware arasındaki temel farkın ne olduğundan bahsedeceğiz.




Bilmeyenler için, malware İngilizce’de "malicious software", yani şüpheli yazılım kelimelerinin kısaltmasıdır. Burada şüpheden kasıt, yazılımın kullanıcıdan habersiz istenmeyen işlemler yapma ihtimalidir. Zararlı yazılımlar verilerinize ve programlarınıza hasar verebilir, diğer bilgisayarlara yayılabilir ve gizli bilgilerinizi çalabilirler. Farklı zararlı yazılım çeşitleri vardır:

- Virüsler
- Solucanlar
- Trojanlar
- Casus yazılımlar
- Reklam zararlıları
- Fidyeci zararlıları vs.

Buna göre virüsün, programlarınıza ve verilerinize bulaşarak yayılan bir zararlı yazılım türü olduğunu söyleyebiliriz. Virüslü bir uygulamayı çalıştırdığınızda önce virüs çalışır, sonrasında programın kendisi çalışır. Böylece virüs uygulamanın çalışmasını etkilemeden kendini gizlemiş olur.

Halihazırda kurulu antivirüs yazılımım var. Neden yanına anti-malware kurayım?

Şimdi asıl meseleye gelelim.

Antivirüsler bilgisayarınız (ve tabi ki cep telefonunuz) için başlıca yazılımlardan birisidir. Bilgisayarınızda tehditlere karşı koyan ilk duvar antivirüsler olacaktır. Bununla birlikte geleneksel antivirüs teknolojisi günümüzde sizi korumak için yeterli olmamaktadır, çünkü antivirüsler yalnızca bilinen virüs türlerine karşı etkilidir.

Her antivirüs yazılımı, içinde virüs veri tabanı bulundurur. Bilgisayarınızda virüslü uygulama çalıştırmaya kalktığınızda öncelikle bu veri tabanından kontrol edilir. Eğer varsa engellenir. Bunun anlamı, önceden tanınmamış bir virüs bulaştığında antivirüs yazılımınızın yapabileceği hiçbir şey olmayacaktır, ta ki o virüs incelenip veri tabanına eklenene kadar.

Bir diğer önemli nokta ise virüslerin tek tehdit olmaması gerçeği. Her geçen gün daha akıllı ve yaratıcı yüzlerce zararlı yazılım (virüslerin dışında) ortaya çıkmaktadır.

Peki daha önce hiç ortaya çıkmamış zararlı yazılımlardan nasıl korunabilirsiniz?

Geleneksel antivirüsler, kendi veri tabanlarında bulunmayan tehditleri tespit edemeyeceklerdir. Bu problemin cevabı anti-malware yazılımlarıdır. Anti-malware korumasına ihtiyacınız var, çünkü bu sizi bilinen ve bilinmeyen tüm tehditlerden koruyacaktır. İşte antivirüs ve anti-malware yazılımları arasındaki temel fark budur.

Zemana AntiMalware virüs tanımlarını sizin bilgisayarınızda tutmayan bir yazılımdır! Zemana AntiMalware bir şüpheli yazılım bulduğunda bunun parmak izini Tarama Bulutuna gönderir. Milisaniyeler sonra buluttaki tarama ajanları şüpheli uygulamanın zararlı olup olmadığını söyler. Eğer tespit edemezse uygulamanın tamamını buluta göndererek daha detaylı inceleme yapar.

Sonrasında Pandora teknolojisi ile yeni nesil tarama gerçekleştirerek bilinmeyen zararlılara karşı sizi güvende tutar. Zemana AntiMalware virüslere karşı veri tabanını kullanarak koruma sağlamasına ek olarak bilgisayarınızdaki her türlü şüpheli davranışı da tespit edip engeller. Sizi;

- Virüslerden
- Trojanlardan
- Rootkitlerden
- Solucanlardan
- Casus yazılımlardan
- Reklam zararlılarından
- Henüz keşfedilmemiş zararlılardan koruyacaktır.

Daha önce belirttiğimiz gibi, antivirüs yazılımları bilgisayarınızda basit ve temel koruma sağlar. Fakat bu yeterli değildir ve sizin daha iyi çözümlere ihtiyacınız var.

Zemana AntiMalware sahip olduğunuz tüm antivirüslerle uyumlu çalışacak şekilde geliştirildi. Hafiftir ve hızlı çalışır, asla bilgisayarınızı hantallaştırmaz. Zemana AntiMalware, bilgisayarınızda kesinlikle bulunması gereken bir ek koruma yazılımıdır.

Özetle, antivirüs yazılımınızı bilgisayarınızda ve telefonunuzda kullanırken (telefonunuzu da güvende tutmayı unutmayın) anti-malware ile ek koruma sağlamayı ihmal etmeyin. Aşağıda ihtiyacınız olan linkleri bulabilirsiniz.

Bilgisayarınızı korumak için şimdi Zemana Antimalware indirin.
Android telefonunuzu korumak için şimdi Antivirüs uygulamasını indirin.
