Malware Scanning and Cleaning

 

How AZGAD Security Malware Scan Works?

Website Malware Scanning and Cleanup is included in all AZGAD Security plans. Azgad Security Scanner will scan your website and all code files and when it detects any known malware, it deletes them. If the system detects a code that is suspicious, it will alerts admins and then, we manually check the codes. If it was a malware we will manually delete them and if not, we will add it to our safe list to prevent future false-positive alerts.

 

What is Malware?

Any code that tries to distribute a virus (malicious code), create a backdoor to another website or another computer, steal information, or changes normal behavior activity of a website is called malware. Malwares may infect your computer by a virus, steal information from your website or your computer, show unwanted advertisements, or install unwanted trial programs.

 

Backdoor

Backdoor is a Trojan script designed to allow hacker remotely manipulate affected systems. Like all Trojans, backdoors do not automatically propagate. They are either installed inadvertently by unsuspecting users or intentionally by malicious users. When a hacker hacks a website account and takes its control, he can install the backdoor script on any of the pages of your website. Then, when a visitor opens the page, a malicious code copies the backdoor script to your computer and informs the hacker. Now hackers can access your computer whenever he wants and steal your files and information (sometimes private or critical data) from your computer.

Backdoors, like other Trojans, typically modify system settings to automatically start. Users may need to terminate backdoors before they can be deleted. Also, restoring affected systems may require procedures other than scanning with an antivirus program.

 

AdWare

Adwares are bothering codes but they usually do not harm your computer. They don't destroy your files or steal information from your computer. They show advertisements. That's why they are called AdWare. Adwares change the default home page of your browser and sometimes install another code in your browser so that when you click on a URL or link or enter a URL in the address bar and press ENTER, they open another window or another tab and show an advertisement.

 

SpyWare

Spywares are another type of malwares. Spywares monitor all your activities and send them to the hacker. The most important things that hackers are interested in are your login credentials of various websites, your bank account login, your credit card details. Sometimes they steal private information from the victim's computer.
