When a DNS client requests host name and address data from a DNS server, the process is called resolution. Basic DNS configuration results in a server that performs default resolution. For example, a remote server queries another server for data in a machine in the current zone. Client software in the remote server queries the resolver, which answers the request from its database files.
An End-user License Agreement or EULA is a legal contract between a software publisher and the software user. It typically outlines restrictions on the side of the user, who can refuse to enter into the agreement by not clicking "I accept" during installation. Clicking "I do not accept" will, of course, end the installation of the software product.
Many users inadvertently agree to the installation of spyware and other types of grayware into their computers when they click "I accept" on EULA prompts displayed during the installation of certain free software.
IntelliScan is a method of identifying files to scan. For executable files (for example, .exe), the true file type is determined based on the file content. For non-executable files (for example, .txt), the true file type is determined based on the file header.
Using IntelliScan provides the following benefits:
Performance optimization: IntelliScan does not affect applications on the client because it uses minimal system resources.
Shorter scanning period: Because IntelliScan uses true file type identification, it only scans files that are vulnerable to infection. The scan time is therefore significantly shorter than when you scan all files.
Phish, or phishing, is a rapidly growing form of fraud that seeks to fool web users into divulging private information by mimicking a legitimate website.
In a typical scenario, unsuspecting users get an urgent sounding (and authentic looking) email telling them there is a problem with their account that they must immediately fix to avoid account termination. The email will include a URL to a website that looks exactly like the real thing. It is simple to copy a legitimate email and a legitimate website but then change the so-called back end, which receives the collected data.
The email tells the user to log on to the site and confirm some account information. A hacker receives data a user provides, such as a logon name, password, credit card number, or social security number.
Phish fraud is fast, cheap, and easy to perpetuate. It is also potentially quite lucrative for those criminals who practice it. Phish is hard for even computer-savvy users to detect. And it is hard for law enforcement to track down. Worse, it is almost impossible to prosecute.Please report to Trend Micro any website you suspect to be a phishing site.
