Ukraine leads in the number of malicious sites
Each 16-th site contain dangerous software, and each 70-th resource is fraudulent
The number of infected computers by automatically installing malicious software together with other programs and files downloaded from the Internet has tripled in the last quarter of 2013. This is according to the report, Microsoft Security Intelligence Report, which analyzed the vulnerability and threat information from over a billion systems and popular services all over the world.
While Ukraine topped the rating of countries in which there are the greatest number of sites containing malware.
The study also recorded an increase in the number of infections by programs-extortionists, for example, the spread of the virus Reveton grew by 45% in six months. In the fourth quarter of 2013, the computers almost 14% of the Ukrainian users have been attacked by such programs, most frequently types Obfuscator (8,03%), Editor (4,14%) and Deminnix (1,77%).
"After the program is installed-the thieves can block the operation system, or browser, to encrypt the working file on the computer, making them inaccessible. Therefore, the attacker requires to send a paid SMS or to Fund any account in exchange for the password to decrypt the files. Some users in fear of losing personal information and files are transferring funds and, of course, remain deceived", – passamaneck Urdenko, Director of research Department of computer hardware, software and telecommunication systems LLC "Nottingham".
The study revealed that each 16-th site in Ukraine contains malware, which can potentially be infected the user's computer. So, on 1000 hosts accounted for 59.2 per infected sites. This is the highest rate in the world, for comparison, throughout the Internet, on average, each infected with approximately 54-th resource.
From all analyzed in the report countries in Ukraine also found a high concentration of phishing sites – each 70-th resource is fraudulent.
According to the study, more than one in every two hundredth site in Ukraine contains exploits that analyze the vulnerabilities in the system and can initiate the download of unwanted files on the user's computer without his knowledge.
"Users less than serious approach to the protection of their computers, so statistically encounter malware in two times more often than the company, – says Yuriy Omelchenko, the Director of the Department for the protection of intellectual property "Microsoft Ukraine". – From 2010 to 2013 the number of vulnerabilities in Microsoft products decreased by 70%, which complicates and increases the cost of operation of cybercriminals. Today to your online security should be treated no less responsible than offline, because attackers are actively using every opportunity to earn. The infected computer often occur without the user's knowledge, so to protect yourself you must use technical means of protection – licensed software and anti-virus, and only trust reliable manufacturers and content sources that regularly back up the files".
Despite the reduction in the amount of spam due to the closure of several major spam networks in recent years, spam remains 75% of the letters received. Cybercriminals continue to use email to receive the benefits of all blocked emails 25% were sent for the purpose of phishing, fraud or infect your computer.
It should also be noted that among visitors of the Microsoft operating system, almost every fourth computer on Windows XP as of the end of 2013 was infected with malware. After graduating from technical support this version of the OS on April 8 2014, experts expect an increase of this figure.
Museum of computer technology, which acts on the SSU, has about 200 exhibits. Among them is the electronic computer and server systems, network equipment, calculators of different generations, graphic systems, tape drives, memory blocks on the ferrite rings, hammers and the like.
The oldest unit represented in the Museum, the adding machine "Felix" 1950's model years. Particularly attracted the attention of UCS. Similar products catered to the summer Olympic games in Moscow in 1980 and was used on all Soviet productions. Visitors enthusiastically inspect the device first in the University of electronic computers "Nairi" and "Promin" personal computers "Iskra-1030" and "Istra", rare "Mouse," and floppy disks, projection systems, and more.
On the walls are information boards with the history of development of computer technology, portraits and biographies of prominent scientists, stages of development of information-telecommunication system of the University.
The idea of creating a Museum arose in 2003 since the unification of the it laboratories of SSU in the center of computer technologies.
The Museum is located in room C-231.
