October 11-17 – troubling week for the security

Digital Edge is committed to providing the highest levels of security within all the IT infrastructure environments under its care. In order to achieve this utmost goal for all of our clients, we continuously maintain vigilance both on the productive side of IT as well as on its destructive side. We thus send out news and security bulletins such as this one from time to time to ensure that our clients are informed and educated on any important developments in IT security and are fully aware of what we are doing to ensure that we and our clients are always at the Cutting and at the Digital Edge of technology.  

  1. Please refer to Microsoft Security Bulletin at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms15-oct.aspx to learn about vulnerabilities and patches available. All Digital Edge managed or co-managed clients will be patched according to individual schedules.
  2. Even though Dridex is design to be a “stealth” virus, security companies are constantly working on new techniques to detect Dridex malware. If you don’t run antivirus or your antivirus was not recently updated, we suggest to verify that you are not affected by Dridex please use following free tools:

F-Secure
