There’s breaking news about a dangerous new virus that your business absolutely needs to take notice of.
Security researchers at Doctor Web found a bug that can execute a “wide range of destructive actions” on any device it manages to infect. Known as BackDoor.Yebot the malware can basically turn your computer into a zombie server for hackers to carry out their will.
The New Risks
BackDoor.Yebot allows hackers to get into your computer and use it to hack and infect other devices. It also records your keystrokes, literally anything and everything you type, including passwords, messages and personal information, and sends it back to the hackers. This presents a huge risk when you’re doing online banking or typing private information into websites.
There is some good news, though: the only way hackers can get BackDoor.Yebot onto your computer is if you’ve already been infected by a bug.
BackDoor.Yebot is spread through another piece of malware. When opened on the targeted computer or device, the bug injects its code into multiple applications and then sends a request to the remote server – it then downloads and decrypts BackDoor.Yebot and hands over control to hackers.
To make sure that dangerous viruses like the one that downloads this bug aren’t infecting your computer or system, you need to ensure you’re equipped with the proper anti-virus programs and IT security.
Talk to your IT company regularly about your business security – make sure you understand what you’re up against and the solutions they’re providing to keep you protected.
Educate your employees about the importance of password protection and exercising caution online with sensitive data.
Remember that any device storing business data needs to be protected, not just your PCs – bugs can infect tablets, smartphones and laptops just as easily.
