IS Decisions Releases SweepDeployer -- Freeware Remotely Detects and Eradicates Malware
SweepDeployer can remotely execute on an entire network (or a selection of systems) Microsoft® Malicious Software Removal Tool, McAfee® AVERT Stinger, or Trend Micro® Damage Cleanup Engine
Biarritz, March 13th, 2006 -- Viruses, worms, Trojans, and spyware represent a hazardous and escalating phenomenon to all IT users. According to the latest Federal Bureau of Investigations Survey (2005 FBI Computer Crime Survey):
Nearly 90% of organizations worldwide have been victims of IT security incidents in 2005
Twenty percent of them were subjected to 20 or more attacks
Viruses (83.7%) and spyware (79.5%) are the most common threats
Sophos, the antivirus editor, reports that 15,907 new, intentionally hostile programs were identified between January and November 2005 (against 10,724 for the same period in 2004 --a 48% increase), and that every 44th e-mail has viral content (this ratio can increase to every twelfth e-mail when large scale attacks are launched)
