CyberDefender issues its CyberDefender Virus Alert regularly. This report highlights the most recent computer viruses plaguing Internet users and exposing them to Internet security dangers.

CyberDefender's anti virus software beta is available as a free anti virus download at http://antivirus.cyberdefender.com/. CyberDefender AntiVirus(tm) 2006 is compatible with all other major anti virus products, so users can easily add another layer of virus protection that catches viruses faster.

CyberDefender's Threat Central ranks threats from one to ten according to its Universal Severity Scale(tm) Threats rated above five are considered viruses while threats ranked below five are considered spyware or adware. Lightning-quick updating ensures users protection from new cyber-attacks faster than any other spyware removal tool.

CyberDefender Universal Severity Scale

Category 7-10 Very High

Category 5-7 High

Category 3-5 Moderate

Category 1-3 Low

Viruses rated by CyberDefender's Universal Severity Scale from seven to ten are extremely dangerous. Typically these types of threats log user keyboard activity, take system snapshots and present a high risk of distribution or damage. They may profile users and send confidential user data back to a remote server, are difficult to contain, and impossible to remove manually.

CyberDefender's automated threat protection and The Collaborative Internet Security Network(tm) together form a seamless adaptive network technology providing all CyberDefender users with threat definitions to protect against new attacks in less than an hour after discovery. This is estimated to be more than 10 times faster, on average, than conventional anti spyware software vendors.
