Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks, Computer Repair, Malware Problem

Google warns of new Malware problem facing many internet users in Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Westlake Village, and Agoura HillsABComputer Repair  certified computer repair specialists use specialized software to remove malware, trojan horse viruses, worms, spyware, and many other forms of viruses in Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Westlake Village, and Agoura Hills.

Google Sounds Alarm on Malware Problem

Google said late Tuesday that it will use its search engine to respond to an outbreak of malicious software, or malware, that the company recently uncovered.
Writing on Google’s blog, Damian Menscher, a security engineer, said the company discovered “unusual search traffic while performing routine maintenance on one of our data centers.” After collaborating with security engineers at several companies that were sending the data traffic, he said, Google concluded that the computers associated with the traffic were previously infected with a particular strain of malware.
A Google spokesman said the company believes more than a million computers were affected by the malware strain. The malware appears to have been downloaded by people who were fooled by online scams that offered them anti-virus protection but were really malware in disguise. ABComputer Repair  certified computer repair specialists use specialized software to remove malware, trojan horse viruses, worms, spyware, and many other forms of viruses in Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Westlake Village, and Agoura Hills.

The malware causes infected computers to send traffic to Google through a small number of intermediary servers called “proxies,” Menscher wrote. Google plans to notify users whose traffic is coming through these proxies to help them update their antivirus software and remove the infections, he said.

Starting Tuesday, Menscher said, some people will see a prominent notification stating that “your computer appears to be infected” at the top of their Google Web-search results. The notification includes a link to help people “learn how to fix this” by running a system scan of their computer, updating their antivirus software and remove the infections, he wrote.

Malware is typically created by criminals or pranksters and  secretly installed on people’s computers, often to track their behavior or obtain their personal financial information or passwords. Computers cannot be infected by malware from executing searches on Google. Rather, computer users download malware unintentionally, sometimes by clicking on links in emails they thought were sent by friends or trusted colleagues, among other ways.  ABComputer Repair  certified computer repair specialists use specialized software to remove malware, trojan horse viruses, worms, spyware, and many other forms of viruses in Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Westlake Village, and Agoura Hills.

Google’s move against the malware outbreak comes on the heels of incidents such as its public warning that China-based hackers were targeting the Gmail accounts of prominent U.S. officials and human-rights activists, fooling them into giving up their usernames and passwords.
