A Literature Review Regarding Disease Protection

Although most of the people feel that there is little or nothing to execute a research in the area of trojan safeguard, there are more and more what to research as everyday more than 200 computer malware are manufactured by the trojan creators. In the modern world most of the folks are using pcs in their day-to-day activities. So that it is more important to have knowledge of computer infections and guarding the personal computers from those viruses.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

Identifying the particular computer infections are, their types, the menace to the computer from computer infections, the present situation of computer infections and protection mechanisms from the computer infections are the aims of this books review.

\endabstract

\sectionIntroduction

As the consumption of the computers and creation of computer trojans are increasing all over the world, every computer consumer began to search about the computer trojans. But there are other various varieties of software like worms and Trojans that can do some harm to the activities of the computer other than the trojans. Although they will vary from computer infections, the computer users are being used to call those other styles of harmful software "viruses".

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

Though there is no any real explanation for the computer infections, they could be considered as special kind of software packages that have the power of self replicating over executable data files reside in the computer and do some interruption to the activities of the computer. As the computer viruses are spreading only when the executable data files are performing, the infections can effect only for the executable data files in the afflicted computer. So the majority of enough time the data with. EXE, . COM, . BAT, . SYS extensions are contaminated. A computer virus can be written with a few lines of encoding codes in any programming language. Any person who has a personal computer can write a trojan and send it to another computer or system far away from the computer which produced the virus via a network or any disk. These infections can damage any significant computer system or network easily within few seconds.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

Computer trojans which do less harm to the computers are just spreading over the computer systems and computer systems. They don't do any dangerous injury to the computers other than just replicating them in the system. Probably the most dangerous type of viruses effect to the computers by changing this content of the documents, partially of completely deleting the data reside in the computer. The info stored in the computer can be lost by infecting these kinds of computer viruses. These kinds of computer viruses cannot be catch by evaluating the files in the computer. But only the destruction they have done to the computer will remain. So acquiring these viruses is the more challenging thing.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

Preventing or protecting from computer infections not only suggest setting up an anti virus program and check the documents by getting use of the anti disease program but also awareness of the computer infections or destructive software and practicing best practices when by using a computer. But the majority of the time most of the computer users trust various anti virus programs to safeguard their systems against computer viruses. Various anti disease programs use various methods or techniques to capture trojans and other types of malicious software. But with the computer safety method, they can not totally protect the computer from computer viruses or malicious software. The next session of this review is known as about what will be the types of Malware and how they infected to computer system. \cite1

\newpage

\sectionTypes of malware

There is no standard method to categorize trojans into numerous kinds. But when we consider current situation of computer trojans on earth we can in essence declare types of malware as follows,

\beginitemize

\item Trojan

\item Worms

\item Viruses

\enditemize

\subsectionTrojan

Trojan infections do not reproduce in the computer but after having a Trojan virus gets into into the computer they just permit the outside persons to learn the files have a home in the computer. Usually Trojans steal passwords and send e-mails to hackers. Then the hacker will get the control of the user's consideration. \cite2

\subsectionWorms

Worms are kind of computer trojans copy and pass on over the computer networks. It does not need a web host to spread. After they multiplied in some type of computer, the copied trojans check out the network for further multiplying and dispersing via the network. \cite2

\subsectionTrojans

Computer infections are a program, a stop of executable code which connects itself to. It overwrites or replaces some code of computer program without knowing of computer end user. A trojan always requires a host program to reside in. The virus is within its idle condition till the web host program it resides executes. Once the variety program executes the bock of code of the computer virus also executes and looks for another location which it can infect. The computer trojans can be categorized into volume of categories like Citizen Trojans, Direct Action Infections, Overwrite Infections, Boot Viruses, Macro Viruses, Directory website Viruses, Polymorphic Trojans, File Infectors, Associate Viruses, FAT Infections. \cite2

\beginitemize

\item Resident Infections - Permanent trojans have a home in the RAM

\item Direct Action Viruses - This sort of virus spreads and does indeed its work when it is executing.

\item Overwrite Trojans - These viruses delete this content of the data files have a home in the computer.

\item Boot Viruses - This sort of trojan infects to a boot sector of the hard drive or floppy. A boot pathogen can be afflicted to the boot sector of the computer by booting the computer from an contaminated floppy drive.

\item Directory Viruses - These trojans change the road of a data file.

\item Polymorphic Viruses - These are encrypting their own code with different algorithms each and every time they enter something.

\item File Infectors - Infect programs or executable files. They infect to a record when this program attached to it executes.

\item Companion Viruses - These are working like citizen viruses or immediate action viruses.

\item FAT Viruses - These infect to the document allocation stand.

\item Macro Trojans - This sort of computer virus infects to the data that have created using programs that contain macros. Currently the majority of the times they are affecting to Word 6, WordBasic and Excel as macros are manufactured by WordBasic. In the present situation of the computer trojans, 15 percent of the viruses are macro trojans. On daily basis macro trojans are created by the computer users in their machines. New macro infections are creating anticipated to corruption, mating and transformation. Macro viruses will be the most damaging kind of any virus. Most of the traditional anti trojan programs cannot detect those new macro viruses. \cite2

\sectionHow Viruses have an effect on and infect to the system

\beginnumber[h]

\captionMalware Detected by Yr \cite10

\par

\endbody

If the computer virus generation speed is greater than its death count, a virus can simply spread within a brief period of time. Physique1 shows how Malware multiply with time. All of the computer infections do not stimulate at the time they enter into the computer. But sometimes they activate after some amount of entering it into the personal computer or computer system. Some of them won't activate plus some will stimulate and do injury to the data files in the machine or change the content of the documents, format the hard disk, show an image in the backdrop.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

There are plenty of ways which a computer virus can enter into a computer. More often than not, they multiply and enter a new computer by having a computer network. Having a removable media, you'll be able to spread a virus. By getting some game titles or software through a web site, a virus can enter into a new system. In the past there was a warranty that the web sites do not contain trojans. But in today's situation, there is absolutely no guarantee that the web sites do not contain infections.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

Trapdoor is another common way of stepping into a trojan into something. Trapdoors are sometimes created by the developers who developed the software to avoid going through the security technique or avoid coming into passwords through the period of time the machine or software is developed. Being a trapdoor is ways to enter into something without going into a password, a virus can certainly enter into a system via a trapdoor.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

If possess the focus on the new computer trojans, the code of some recently created computer viruses are encrypted so that the anti computer virus software cannot catch them. \cite3

\sectionCover from computer trojans

To pass on a virus from one computer to some other, it should contain the permission or capability to execute its code and do some changes or completely delete the files apart from the record the virus presently residing. According to the people facts, protection from computer trojans means prevent the trojan from copying itself to some other location, the computer virus will not contain or avoid modifying or deleting the other data the trojan does not reside.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

If this content of a document has modified or edited without knowledge of the user, the user can suspect that a virus has been afflicted to the computer. Other than that when a disease has attacked something, sometimes the performance of the computer can be reduced, various mistake messages are viewed or use some storage space from drive drives unexpectedly.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

Worms normally find addresses to distributed and they get the addresses in three ways. Worms

\beginitemize

\item Randomly generate addresses

\item Find addresses in system tables

\item Find addresses in a program

\enditemize

Protection against worms range from,

\beginitemize

\item Put passwords that cannot easily think.

\item Remove some operations which reveal the anchored data in the system.

\item Apply some answers to the insects.

\enditemize

As worms are quickly spread over sites and they are trying to overload the networks, guarding from worms include monitoring network activities and do isolation and deactivation of some elements of the network.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

When it involves protecting pcs from viruses, the simplest things the user can do is usually backup the info reside in the computer. But it is not a proper solution to cope with the computer infections. As most of the computer users are now alert to the computer trojans they control "write" privilege to computer programs. After infecting a disease to an application since it changes the content of the record, there are some kind of software that can be used to check the content for unusual changes in its content. \cite4, 12

\sectionAnti pathogen software programs

When protecting a computer from computer viruses with the help of an anti computer virus program, the service providers of those anti disease programs are providing their service to its clients in volume of different ways. Some of the sellers or anti pathogen software are waiting for a request from a user because of their product. Following the client or the user requests, the service provider provides their service to an individual. Another kind of anti virus vendor automatically downloading and installs their product into client's machine without the data of an individual. A number of the vendors are mailing e-mail to the computer users mentioning the availability of their product. However some of these above mentioned ways have some ethically not relevant strategies.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

Though a large number of anti disease programs, designed by programmers is there to detect computer viruses, they can not play a perfect role in detecting computer viruses. More trojans are written for a new platform 's the reason for your. To find those new trojans, new detection technologies should be created. There are volume of computer virus diagnosis methods.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

Over some years ago, only the known trojans could be discovered by anti pathogen programs. What those anti trojan programs does were, choosing the string from known viruses so when a check for trojans is started, anti pathogen program looks for documents include that string and detect that document as an afflicted file. This method of detecting computer viruses looked limited to static characteristics of known computer trojans. But as thousands of computer viruses are creating in just a 12 months, the industry people began to create anti virus programs that are detecting unknown computer trojans too. These procedures are called "heuristic method".

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

As trojan infection has turned into a huge hazards to who has your computer and who uses computers. Most of the computer users are today getting the service of an anti computer virus program to identify destructive software or computer trojans. Getting use of an anti disease software is the most secured and popular way to protect the computers from destructive software. Anti disease programs identify the destructive software in two main techniques.

\beginitemize

\item They use a string matching approach to identify recently known trojans or malicious software.

\item The next method the anti disease programs use is acquiring abnormal actions of any computer program running on the computer.

\enditemize

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

In string matching methodology, the anti computer virus programs are getting use of a 'pathogen dictionary' which provides the codes of previously known infections. When an anti disease program starts off to check out a document it identifies the disease dictionary so when it discovers a block of code in the scanned data file which also contained in the virus dictionary, it quickly takes an action contrary to the suspicious record. \cite5

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

If an anti disease program uses capturing abnormal or suspicious behaviors, it monitors the tendencies of the record which is scanning and if the document behaves abnormally the anti disease program detect the data file as infected record an take an action against that. Employing this method, the new infections may also be detected. \cite5

\subsectionThe problem in virus dictionary method

As virus makers are now aware of virus detection methods, they are now writing the trojans so that the codes of the pathogen as encrypted rules when it's in an application. Normally they write the pathogen programs so that the code of itself doesn't look same as the real code of computer. Because of those two reasons, the anti computer virus program cannot detect the infected data file by corresponding the strings using the computer virus dictionary. The other issue of this method is it cannot detect a new pathogen which doesn't contain in the disease dictionary.

\subsectionThe problems of detecting a virus by its behavior

As this technique is looking for a suspicious habit of the file that has been scanning, a data that shows unusual behavior which includes not been attacked by a virus or malicious software can also be detected as an afflicted record by the anti disease program. If an individual gets an action against that file sometimes that non infected file can be removed. So modern anti trojan programs do not utilize this approach to find a computer virus.

There are some fraudulent anti computer virus software which do not clean or protect the personal computers. These fake anti pathogen software come with names which act like other real anti trojan software. Whenever a user considers such a fraudulent anti pathogen software an individual feels that this ant computer virus software is a real one and then he install than fake anti virus software into the computer. After setting up that imitation one in the computer, it displays fake messages expressing there are some infections in the computer and to remove it from the computer pay some sum of money. As these varieties of fake anti computer virus software are there with only the aim of earning money, the computer users must aware of that kind of artificial anti virus software too.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

Although there are so many anti computer virus software to discover computer viruses, the latest computer infections cannot easily be caught by even the latest anti computer virus software packages as the code of disease is encrypted. What the virus designers do to cover up the foundation code of the virus is encrypting the code of the disease and transmits it to the computers. So the anti computer virus software cannot easily understand the code plus they cannot capture that document as a dubious file. Some pathogen designers encrypt the code and keep the key to decrypt in another file to make it more difficult for the anti computer virus software to get the trojan. But good anti disease software, that have used good algorithms, can discover those computer infections too. \cite6, 7

\subsectionMost trusted anti virus software \cite11

\beginitemize

\item BitDefender Antivirus 2010 - BitDefender is using advanced heuristic diagnosis method and provides cover against online viruses, spyware, phishing scams and more. This provides cover by scanning web, IM and emails and this is with the capacity of encrypting the IM s too. Among the new features BitDefender looking for is Energetic Virus Control which screen the behavior of any file continuously. \cite13

\item Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010 - Provides coverage from trojans, Trojans, bots, worms and spy ware. The interfaces and tools used are advanced but this provides agreat coverage against the majority of the real dangers. \cite14

\item Webroot AntiVirus with SpySweeper 2010 - That is a desktop anti pathogen bundle and protect the computer from infections, trojans, worms and other range of malware. This attracts the malware prior to the malware will any harm to the computer. \cite15

\item Norton AntiVirus 2010 - Uses personal based safeguard. However offers a new features like the proactive reputation scanning. But uninstalling the software might cause some problems as its incomplete uninstallation. \cite16

\item ESET Nod32 Antivirus 4 - Sort of desktop anti virus software. But this won't provide a complete security and misses some coverage. This is not in your competition with other anti computer virus software. \cite17

\item AVG Anti-Virus 9 - Includes antivirus and antispyware safety. provides complette security from dangerous downloads and web cites. \cite18

\item F-Secure Anti-Virus 2010 - Great desktop anti virus. Has one of the very most effective scan technique and test outcomes are proven to establish that. When setting up this anti disease software, it has been automatically configured to remove the other anti virus software installed to the computer. \cite19

\item G DATA AntiVirus 2011 - Uses two specific antivirus scanning machines, behavioral/heuristic safeguard, and even self-learning fingerprinting. This gives coverage against malware growing via e-mails and IM. The types of malware which are recognized by this anti virus software are, phishing scams, dialers, adware, malicious scripts, Trojans, rootkits and worms. \cite20

\sectionGetting use of a firewall

The firewall is a kind of a program design to protect the computer from damaging things that are coming from the internet. Firewalls are split into two categories as 'hardware firewall' and 'software firewall'.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

Hardware firewalls are some kind of small hardware which can control the data via multiple personal computers. Software firewalls are kind of software that contain the capability to block suspicious data approaching to the computer from the internet. So to protect the computer from trojans and other kind of harmful software a software firewall and hardware firewall can be use. \cite5

\sectionBest techniques to protect the computer from computer viruses

Though there are thousands of anti trojan software are there, the computer users are also getting the responsibility of guarding the computer with all the computer. They need to follow some best practices when they use your computer.

\beginitemize

\item Although computer user are the owners of the computer he should not always log into the computer with the administrator privileges. If indeed they log into the computer as a normal user, some types of viruses will never be able to enter into the computer.

\item A pc end user should avoid from setting up some anti pathogen software or various other software in some other person's computer.

\item As some trojans are coming with email accessories, when opening emails it is good never to to open e-mail from anonymous addresses.

\item When downloading it and setting up anti computer virus software, download a recommended anti disease software.

\enditemize

\newpage

\sectionRealization

According to the research workers, each day over 200 computer trojans which can kill a complete computer system within a couple of seconds are released by the trojan creators. The most detrimental thing that direct result an inflection is loosing data the have a home in the computer.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

Most of the time, these types of destructions happen due to lack of awareness of the computer users about the computer trojans. To mitigate the chance of infecting a trojan to a user's computer, the primary thing we can do is make the computer users aware of the computer viruses, risks of infecting a computer virus and preventing from computer viruses.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

The people who have an idea about computer viruses most of enough time trust anti pathogen programs. But just putting in an anti virus software is not enough to safeguard the computer from computer trojans. The computer users also have the responsibility to safeguard the computer from computer infections. As most of enough time the computer viruses come with the e-mail attachments, the e-mails from anonymous addresses shouldn't be opened. When installing something from a web site the users should use only the trusted web sites and advised software. But now there are little or nothing called trusted sites. Even the software downloaded from Microsoft's site may contain infections. Some trojans cannot enter the computer if the user is logging into the computer with consumer privilege. So it is good to normally log in to the computer with the user privilege.

As viruses assault only the executable data files, the write authorization to those data files can be restricted.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

After putting in an anti pathogen software program in some type of computer, to get the best safety from that anti pathogen, keeping it up to date is more important. But though there is an anti disease program installed in the computer, when plugging external removable devices in to the computer, it should be scanned.

\beginsloppypar

\endsloppypar

But the ultimate conclusion which can come through this review is the fact that though there are many protection methods, that are available on the globe, a computer user can't be completely safe from the computer trojans. That means the computer security methods is not perfect in guarding personal computers from computer malware.
