  6. Windows XP End Of Support

    After 12 years, support for Windows XP has ended on April 8, 2014. There will be no more security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system. Without critical Windows XP security updates, your PC may become vulnerable to harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software which can steal or damage your business data and information. Many software vendors will no longer support their products running on Windows XP as they are unable to receive Windows XP updates. Most PC hardware manufacturers will stop supporting Windows XP on existing and new hardware.

  7. Tip of the Day Always keep an eye on what you click and download, including music, movies, files, browser plug-ins or add-ons
    Be wary of pop-up windows that ask you to download software or that offer to fix your computer. Often these pop-ups will claim that your computer has been infected and that their download can fix it – don’t believe them. Close the window and make sure you don’t click inside the pop-up window. Do not open files of unknown types, or if you see unfamiliar browser prompts or warnings asking you to open a file. Sometimes malware may prevent you from leaving a page if you land on it, for example by repeatedly opening a download prompt. If this happens, use your computer’s task manager or activity monitor to close your browser.

    anyone have any proof of using Avira engine in this Baidu antivirus??

    I have decided to have a little play around with this.

    First I wanted to see the Avira engine working.

    I enabled the Avira engine option and updated, (It's disabled by default)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next I grabbed a Conficker out of my VX collection, right clicked and scanned with Baidu Antivirus 2013.

    I was expecting the threat window and the threat prefix to match that of Avira, instead we get something else.

    VirusTotal Scan Results - Conficker

    The scan completed window (click show Spoiler)

    [​IMG]

    Notice it says "Net-Worm.Win32.Kido.ih"

    Avira VirusTotal result:

    [​IMG]

    Not the same, So instead I looked down the list of other vendors to see if I could find a prefix that matches the same as the one displayed in Baidu Antivirus 2013.

    Kaspersky VirusTotal result:

    [​IMG]

    I'll let you wonder what it means.

    Edit: It means this.

    Can Baidu's own AV be disabled in replace for Avira only? Also did you test any other samples?

    They will never get it right, like just about everything else China exports.

    Chinese AV's = European AV's (after borrowing a Euro engine) with malicious rootkits and grayware added.

    It looks like a rogue that has been retooled, as to attempt to make a legit buck, for the time being. Maybe it has a function that allows the developers to view your private life and record it for Hong Kong reality show candidacy.

    I hope I am wrong. I really do. I hope this AV becomes a solid performer, but I have my doubts.

    PCHunter
    Now THAT Chinese product is an example of fine quality, and China needs to start manning up and exporting that kind of quality across-the-board.

    looks like Avira made some type of contract with Baidu.... they now offering Baidu.PC.Faster [some kind of PC Maintenance tool from Baidu, damn sure hardly anyone heard its name before ]

    from another link, i think, Kingsoft Antivirus will be stopped now, and replaced by Baidu, read this following link

    Anyone used the HIPS (Proactive Protection) module?

    The website claims "Baidu Antivirus is compatible with 10 mainstream security software perfectly", however which ones? I do not have any other information.

    I scanned some more malicious files and they all show up as Kaspersky engine prefixes.

    None of them Avira prefixes when compared to VirusTotal like in my previous post in this thread.

    Could someone else try it themselves and report back with results. Thanks.

    Interesting:
    They claim companion av support, yet on their FAQ:

    OK either their beta is buggy or even the avira engine is not fully updated.

    This file in VT is known as Julien.exe but when downloading is renamed to poe aob multihack.exe (a map hack used by many users in Path of Exile and most reported account hacked... Yes it contains a keylogger trojan type).

    Yet, Baidon does not detect it with "avira engine" enabled:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Something ain't right in this piece of AV.


    Time to remove.
