ParetoLogic Anti-Virus PLUS Combats Conficker C Worm Outbreak

ParetoLogic finds itself a rare safe haven, after a variant of the Conficker virus blocks access to other popular security programs. Many infected users are expected to turn to ParetoLogic, having little other option in removing the pernicious threat

Pareto LogicVictoria BC – A wildfire has broken out in the computer security world, in the form of the Conficker C virus. As long standing companies find themselves cut short by the threat, young and innovative companies rise to take their place, with ParetoLogic at the forefront.

Conficker C, which also goes by the name Downadup, has presented a new and devastating payload to Anti-Virus Plusinfected users. The virus, according to a report by the Computer Science Laboratory of SRI International, attacks specific vulnerable Windows DLLs related to domain name resolution and caching. The worm then inserts a collection of anti-virus company names, and forbids their access. The result: users who attempt to visit most online security vendors find the sites unavailable, and they are therefore unable to remove the Conficker C infection. The list of affected companies is extensive, but still more notable for the heavy hitters listed, including Norton, McAfee, Trend Micro, Symantec, Avast and AVG. ParetoLogic Anti-Virus PLUS is not listed, and by virtue of its absence the program can still be accessed and downloaded. Accordingly, it is one of the few available security solutions which can protect against the Conficker worm.
