How to Review the System Security Needs of a Computer

In order to go ahead with this topic one must be aware of the concepts of what computer security actually is? In simple terms Computer Security can be termed as the branch of computer technology which is applied to computers and networks. It is a collective process and mechanism to protect a system from unauthorized access. The main objective of computer security is to protect the information and property from theft, corruption or whatever may be the means while keeping it secure and accessible to the users wished for.

Past were the times when need for security of Computers were minimal. But if we take the present scenario its need can’t be sub-sided at all as there are multiple threats which can lead to severe loss or destruction. One should frequently monitor the security measures and its maximum possible alternatives so that his/her data and confidential information don’t get compromised. In less than 3 minutes, spies can infect your computer if they physically get access to your computer through a Key logger program.

Below are some points through which security needs of a system can be fulfilled:

  • Always check the physical security of a system no matter whether it is a laptop or desktop. Make a habit of not leaving you system in an office or any other public space unless you have an administrative account and a password on it. Log-off every single time you leave your system.
  • Whether be it home or work lock your wireless network with a WEP password.
  • Keep your password long enough with combination of letters and digits. But it should be such that you easily remember it.
  • Whether be it home or work lock your wireless network with a WEP password.
  • Always keep on the Windows firewall of your system. Else try downloading effective firewall programs such as Comodo etc. It helps to shut down the open ports of your Internet connection thereby preventing the spyware and viruses from attacking your system from backdoor.
  • Keep an effective Antivirus software and try updating it on regular basis else keep its settings to auto update so that if you forget to update your antivirus, it will automatically update the time you gets online. And don’t keep two antivirus software on one system.
  • Try avoiding Website’s add-ons as well as habit to download online offers which seems to be good. It does not like if you click on online offers your system will get infected but for the spywares and viruses it’s the easiest way to attack a system. Not all the offers come with spywares and all but almost all comes with. You must now think that I have antivirus software installed in my system so no fear. But the fact is sometimes your antivirus might fail to detect it. So why taking chances, try avoiding those habits.

The methodologies and approaches made for computer security totally differs from other computer technologies. Some of the approaches to computer security may be like-although one knows that the software is not reliable but it has to be used due to some purposes by taking adequate measures. Another approach can be like blacklist all software and apply strict security measures so that you system remains safe. Likewise there are several other approaches. Various techniques and strategies are enforced to ensure system security. One common technique is to apply strictly the “principle of least privilege”, coz where the privilege will be less the harm too will be minimal.

Tips towards incorporating Computer System Security

Safety and security of computer is as important as cleaning a computer. Computer security is also known as information security. Computer security is very important and it protects the system information from hacking or any other disaster. Main aim of computer security is to provide methods and mechanism to protect the computer.

It also focuses on the reliability and correct operation of the system. The computer security field growth rate is getting higher according to the time, now a day hacking and data theft is normal. So, it is important to concentrate on information security.

In the recent years many research and achievements has been made in the field of System security. The other objectives of Computer System security includes allied infrastructure and  securing networks, securing databases  and applications, auditing for information systems, security testing and digital forensics science, business continuity planning, etc.

There are many ways by which the integrity of the computer system security could be violated.

Now take an example, consider a user on a system mistypes someone’s address, and then it could update your name in database in wrong way if automated process is not written.

So the information security professionals are trained to tackle the errors and find the appropriate method to prevent errors. There is an obvious chance to get affected by malwares, because you are using internet frequently and you can click on some web page that spreads malware or Spam.

Normally, three different kinds of information used for the authentication.  These are something you know, something you are, or something you have.

Under something you know comes PIN, any middle name or a password. A driver’s license or a magnetic swipe card is the examples of something you have and biometrics is the example of something you are. Examples of biometrics include finger prints, palm prints, voice prints and retina scans. In biometric system protection the biometric data like the fingerprint; face recognition etc. is encoded into digital format and saved.

The saved information is compared with the biometric data at the time of log in. Strong authentication requires the inspection of information more than two times as the information goes for multiple securities check stages. The information provided for Credit card and other online transactions are the examples of such authentication as they require passwords at multiple stages. Cryptography is used in the password protection.

There are several online security programs available, mainly they are universities, colleges or training companies who offer these programs.

In the United Kingdom a recognized information security certification is provided by CESG. It recognizes the increasing demand of system security and guidance. This demand is the result of an increasing awareness of threats and vulnerabilities. The information today is facing an ever-challenging environment.

Information security is an ongoing process of exercising. From this discussion of Computer System Security, we conclude that the risk of data vulnerability is high due to several resources of viruses and other computer threats. Apart from that several applications and tools are available on internet to remove the threats and computer viruses.

How to Remove “System Security” Antivirus

System Security antivirus virus is a rogue antivirus is a known fact across the world, especially among tech professionals and those who have been attacked by it. It is obtained without knowledge from the web, from the Winweb malware program.

For doing this, you need to download the Windows Process Explorer program. When the download is completed, the file ‘procexp.exe’ needs to be right clicked on, and renamed to ‘explorer.exe’. Then double click on the file icon and run the program. Look for a process on ‘Process Explorer’, which starts with eight or more numbers, followed by the .exe file extension. Next to the process, you will see an icon of a shield that needs to be selected. To kill the process, click on the red ‘X’ button and then select ‘Yes’ for confirmation.

Delete all files within the folder after it is found. Within the folder, you will find an executable file containing six or more random numbers that is the executable program for the virus. The numbers containing the executable file’s name should be made note of.

Removing Registry Entries

The final step in removing the malware application completely from the system is by deleting the entries made into the registry by the virus. For opening the registry editor of the computer, click on ‘start’, type ‘command’ after selecting ‘Run’ and then press the Enter button. In the DOS window that opens up, type ‘regedit’ and press enter. Select ‘Edit, then select ‘Search’ and enter the random numbers that make up the virus’ executable file name.
