Norman's SandBox Technology Protects Against New Virus Outbreaks

  • 29 July, 2004 09:52

<p>The latest outbreaks of MyDoom.L and Bagle.AH were instantly detected and stopped by Norman’s SandBox technology allowing Norman customers to enjoy immediate and effective protection when the worms attacked.</p>
<p>The most recent virus, MyDoom.L, appeared Monday and caused severe delays for Internet search engines, such as Goggle, Lycos and Yahoo. The virus worm spreads via email attachments, pretending to come from the PC user’s Internet provider.</p>
<p>When run, the worm can open a back door on the infected computer, making the computer potentially vulnerable to hackers. The virus uses email addresses found on the computer to mail itself to other users, making the mail appear to originate from the attacked computer domain.</p>
<p>Norman’s SandBox technology is the world’s leading technology in pro-active virus protection. Norman SandBox monitors all files trying to enter the computer through email or online connections. Should a file prove to be suspicious, it will be analysed, and if found to contain malicious code it will be isolated and denied access to the computer.</p>
<p>Mark Karpinski, managing director of Capital security Solutions (Norman’s Australasian distributor), said: “The two major virus outbreaks we have seen over the last week demonstrated how effective and beneficial Norman’s new technological is. Customers can rest assured the product is protecting their systems even against unknown viruses”.</p>
<p>“Norman will continue to develop its state of the art SandBox technology and continue to lead the field in proactive virus detection,” he said.</p>
<p>Updated definition files to detect and remove the viruses using conventional technology were available from Norman within minutes of the outbreaks.</p>

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
