Given the recent high-profile attacks in the news, pharming has become a real concern for organizations and consumers around the world
Arlington, Va. (PRWEB) April 22, 2009
Cyveillance, the world leader in cyber intelligence, today announced the launch of expanded Cyveillance Anti-Phishing - Pharming™ capabilities, enabling organizations to quickly detect, respond to and recover from pharming attacks that target their brands, employees or customers. Pharming is a scam in which users are unknowingly misdirected to fraudulent Web sites by exploiting vulnerabilities in the Internet Domain Name System (DNS) architecture or by installing malicious software (malware) on a user's machine. Using its comprehensive Internet monitoring technology, Cyveillance quickly identifies potential pharming activity and immediately takes the appropriate actions through the company's industry leading security response team.
"Given the recent high-profile attacks in the news, pharming has become a real concern for organizations and consumers around the world," said Panos Anastassiadis, CEO and Chairman of Cyveillance. "What makes pharming attacks so dangerous is the fact that they are most often impervious to antivirus and spyware detection software and without highly sophisticated knowledge and advanced tools, there is no way for the user to even know that an attack is happening. Our newly expanded service provides even faster, more comprehensive pharming detection and mitigation capabilities while seamlessly integrating into existing anti-fraud and security programs."
Using Cyveillance Anti-Phishing - Pharming™, Cyveillance provides real-time, around-the-clock detection and alerting of changes to the global DNS infrastructure enabling organizations to minimize or eliminate the negative impact from pharming attacks. After detection of potential pharming activity, Cyveillance immediately begins analysis and mitigation of the attack and can assist with the repair of faulty DNS entries. Through the newly enhanced version of Cyveillance Anti-Phishing - Pharming™ customers receive the fastest and most comprehensive service coverage of root DNS servers, authoritative DNS servers and ISP DNS servers for malicious or abnormal activity related to any of the IP addresses associated with customer owned domain names.
