Malware that targets boot record

by Tony Hill on January 16, 2016

Security experts are warning about new malware called "Nemesis", that emerged on web in the beginning of the previous year and presents a real threat to desktop and laptop computers security. Ordinary antivirus solutions are not able to detect it, because it gets loaded before Windows operating system. Althought it targets financial institutions, almost nobody is safe from it.

In case of infection, removal of malware is far from easy, as formatting hard disk or reinstalling operating system is not enough, since it infects master boot record (MBR) on hard disk. Because even antivirus solutions are not able to identify this threat, the best protection is prevention. So, we advise you not to install suspicious apps or open attachments in suspicious emails.
