I just can’t say enough bad about Webroot. I blew it away two years ago because of all the problems and lack of support. So here I am two years later and am still being haunted. I uninstalled it from all my endpoints but it did not remove itself from SecurityCenter. It is still in the WMI. That really doesn’t surprise me. It is obvious that Webroot has no business getting in to the virus arena but anyway….. is there an automated way to remove the Webroot entries in the WMI?
Hello, Recently we have seen fileless malware come up on some endpoints. PowerShell is launching a script that loads a text file, that spawns a remote connection back to an attacker.I understand the Evasion Shield is supposed to detect this. Is there a way we can block PowerShell scripts with Webroot, or even better, where we can be alerted if a PowerShell script launches, or can we block it, etc? Thank you
Some of our endusers (not all) are experiencing problem with the Webroot Web Threat Shield extension in Microsoft Edge (the new Chromium based version). They get a request to enter the keycode. That should not happen, as the environment is fully managed by us as MSP. Is this a known bug?
Hello everyone,My company is using Webroot SecureAnywhere for Business. We are trying to deploy an application that may require us to turn off webroot. Everything I’ve seen shows how to do so manually via the client’s GUI. This is too time consuming as we have dozens of endpoints. Is there a way to shutdown webroot via powershell (or any other automated way), install what I need, then turn it on again? I know the security implications of this and understand why this may not even be possible. But I just wanted to make sure.
I have a user having issues and the only thing that changed was installing webroot. I want to disable the agent remotely to see if the users notices a difference. I created a test policy that allows the agent to be shutdown. Is there a way I can run a terminal command to shutdown the agent?
Outdated Understanding of Cybercrime is Risky for Financial Markets Today, [url=http://citywire.co.uk/global/cyber-crime-now-poses-systemic-risk-to-markets-report-warns/a692485]CityWire Global reported[/url] that global financial markets are under a growing threat of cybercrime, according to the latest report from the International Orgnaization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO). [i]‘Reliance on an out-dated understanding of what cyber-crime entails, a perception of safety due to containment of past cyber-attacks, or assumptions around the limited capabilities of cyber-criminals today–may mean we end up “bringing a knife to a gun fight” in the future,’ said the report’s author Rohini Tendulkar.[/i] [i] [/i] This data seems to be in line with the thoughts of many other analysts.

[h1][url=http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/262158-is-your-aging-endpoint-security-giving-you-gray-hairs]Is your aging endpoint security giving you gray hairs?[/url][/h1] The signature-based approach to protecting endpoints from cyberthreats has served organizations well for many years—some say perhaps too many. The increasing rate of breaches and infections represents just one symptom of a solution whose time has passed. If you are an IT professional in charge of managing endpoints, you likely understand the pain.

It does this by comparing a signatu
Backblaze is showing off the new version of their storage pod: [url=http://blog.backblaze.com/2014/03/19/backblaze-storage-pod-4/]http://blog.backblaze.com/2014/03/19/backblaze-storage-pod-4/[/url] It's nice to see the technology behind the scenes - they do a great job of sharing info on drive reliability and storage costs.
More than 55,000 new malicious software programs are registered [i]each day [/i]by AV-Test an independent antivirus (AV) research institue. Any one of these can have a mild to devastating impact on the organization, randing from wasted IT staff hours to damages to consumer confidence or losses of dollars in the instance of a regulatory violation. In fact, the average organization experiences a malware attack every 73 days, Osterman Research found in a 2011 study, in which 44% of participants said that a single malware attack had cost them as much as $10,000, while another 27% reported financial impacts as high as $50,000. Too few IT decision-makers address malware threats adequately, chalking up security breaches as a cost of doing business, the researchers noted, adding, "The costs [of malware] are typically higher than many organizations realize, but with the right knowledge and technologies, it is possible to reduce the impacts of malware." Canalys Research has likew
Here's something really cool I've been working on and it's now nearly complete.

I hope this thread assists many people!
I use BackBlaze at home and they do a great job. Not only do they have great online backup service, they also sponsor [url=http://www.worldbackupday.com/]World Backup Da[/url]y. Walter Mossberg just did a [url=http://recode.net/2014/03/11/triple-coverage-back-up-your-computer-in-three-ways/]nice review[/url] of them. They do both consumer and business backups. They also do some really [url=http://blog.backblaze.com/2014/01/21/what-hard-drive-should-i-buy/]nice blog posts[/url] about reliability of hard drives and how they run their business. Their backup saved my bacon as the HD on my old iMac died. I had an external drive I backed up to with Time Machine, but it turned out that drive had errors as well. The online backup ended up doing the trick. Glad I was using belt and suspenders :)
