    Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 review: Good protection, advanced settings (minus the jargon)

    Posted February 2, 2013 - 8:03 am

    Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 ($60 for one year and three PCs, as of 12/19/12) is a solid antimalware suite that provides admirable protection and an excellent settings interface. This program looks a little different from the other suites we tested, mainly because of its teal-and-white colors, in contrast to the green-is-good/red-is-bad user interface that most other security packages use. But once you get past the fact that teal is sort of the same as green (trust us, this takes a moment), it's a good program that will keep you safe from most incoming attacks.

  • Super-spy malware Duqu is back with new tricks, new hints at who wrote it

    Posted March 21, 2012 - 2:02 pm

    Symantec captured a new version of the module the Stuxnet descendant Duqu uses to penetrate new systems, but not the part that shows where it gets its orders. Kaspersky, meanwhile, cracked the mystery of Duqu's mysterious coding language and identified characteristics of the coding team that built it; nothing's sure, but the profile is consistent with government work.

    Kaspersky's free TDSSKiller digs up rootkits

    Posted February 20, 2012 - 8:26 am

    Recently I spent some time rescuing my sister-in-law's laptop from some seriously nasty malware. Even after running utilities like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then using UnHide to restore the system's missing icons and folders, something was hijacking the Web browsers. Whenever I'd click a link in Internet Explorer or Firefox (the latest versions of both, FYI), some malicious bit of code would redirect the browser to a phishing site. That's hijacking in a nutshell, and it's extremely frustrating.

    Posted August 12, 2008 - 12:49 pm
