Viruses are lurking everywhere. The borrowed CD is infected with a Trojan horse that enables others to Remote Control your computer, a downloaded screen saver stores dangerous viruses beside the image of the romantic SUNSET, and e-mails can hide worms - even without an attachment.
While surfing on the Internet your computer gets infected with viruses that are hidden in ActiveX-applications. Seemingly harmless e-mails corrupt your computer through polymorphous viruses which can change their form constantly. A virus lurks in a compressed file and gets activated only when the file is decompressed.
A wrong mouse click can install backdoor software that allows others to access your computer. How does Steganos AntiVirus work?
Steganos AntiVirus watches over all interfaces of your computers. Any reading and writing accesses are carefully screened for script, macro, file and boot sector viruses. Moreover, polymorphous viruses in ActiveX and Java applications are also recognized and terminated. Trojan Horses do not stand a chance either.
Unknown viruses are defeated as well. Thanks to a heuristic technology, even viruses that have not yet been included in a virus databank are found.
Incoming and outgoing e-mails are scanned for viruses in real time. Using this system ensures that all your emails are virus free. Attachments, saved files, and compressed files are also scanned for viruses in order to avoid any unpleasant surprises that may be awaiting you.
