Viruses

Computer viruses are programs that spread or self-replicate. The virus may arrive in an  e-mail message as an attachment or be activated by visiting a malicious web site. Some viruses consume storage space or simply cause unusual screen displays. Others destroy information. If a virus infects your PC, all the information on your hard drive may be lost and/or compromised.  Also, a virus in your PC may easily spread to other machines that share the information you access.  (State of New Jersey, 2008)

By Any Other Name:

Although they may be introduced into your system by the same means, not all computer viruses behave the same way.  Some of the most common types of computer viruses include:

  • Trojan Horse: A Trojan horse program has the appearance of having a useful and desired function. While it may advertise its activity after launching, this information is not apparent to the user beforehand. Secretly the program performs other, undesired functions. A Trojan Horse neither replicates nor copies itself, but causes damage or compromises the security of the computer.
  • Worms: A worm is a program that makes and facilitates the distribution of copies of itself; for example, from one disk drive to another, or by copying itself using email or another transport mechanism.
  • Bootsector Virus: A virus which attaches itself to the first part of the hard disk that is read by the computer upon bootup.
  • Macro Virus: Macro viruses are viruses that use another application’s macro programming language to distribute themselves. They infect documents such as MS Word or MS Excel and are typically spread to other similar documents.
  • Memory Resident Viruses: Memory Resident Viruses reside in a computers volitale memory (RAM). They are initiated from a virus which runs on the computer and they stay in memory after its initiating program closes.
  • Rootkit Virus: A rootkit virus is an undetectable virus which attempts to allow someone to gain control of a computer system. The term rootkit comes from the linux administrator root user. These viruses are usually installed by trojans and are normally disguised as operating system files.
  • Logic Bombs/Time Bombs: These are viruses which are programmed to initiate at a specific date or when a specific event occurs. Some examples are a virus which deletes your photos on Halloween, or a virus which deletes a database table if a certain employee gets fired.  (Top Choice Previews)

 A Growing Problem:

There were  1 ,017,208 viruses reported during the first of 2010 alone. This represent(ed) an increase of 50 percent compared to (the previous) year. Experts (predicted) a  record total of over two million new malware programs for 2010 as a whole.  (Leeuwen, 2010) With statistics like this indicating an ever-increasing threat of attacks, it’s important to know what to look out for.   Signs that your computer is  infected by a virus may include:

  • Your computer behaves strangely, i.e. in a way that you haven’t seen before. 
  • You see unexpected messages or images. You hear unexpected sounds, played at random.
  • Programs start unexpectedly. Your personal firewall tells you that an application has tried to connect to the Internet (and it’s not a program that you ran).
  • Your friends tell you that they have received e-mail messages from your address and you haven’t sent them anything.
  • Your computer ‘freezes’ frequently, or programs start running slowly.
  • You get lots of system error messages. The operating system will not load when you start your computer.
  • You notice that files or folders have been deleted or changed. You notice hard disk access (shown by one of the small flashing lights) when you’re not aware of any programs running.
  • Your web browser behaves erratically, e.g. you can’t close a browser window. (Kaspersky Lab)

If you feel your computer may have been infected by a virus, please contact the SJU Technology Service Center (TSC) at x2920 or by email at techhelp@sju.edu. Remember: The TSC will NEVER ask you for your password or Social Security number.

Hawk Card Program

In conjunction with many offices throughout campus, the Office of Information Technology has implemented the new Hawk Card program.  The whole campus community will receive new Hawk Card ID cards.  If you have not already done so, your Hawk Card can be picked up in the Public Safety and Security office in Barbelin room 13.

The Hawk Card program has an exciting new feature called Hawk Cash. Hawk Cash enables cardholders to add money to their card to make secure, cashless purchases at on-campus dining facilities, the bookstore, mail room, student life, copy and print stations, as well as at specific off-campus retailers.  The retailers that are currently part of the program include ACME, CVS, Dake’s Drugstore, Dana Hot Yoga, Hess Express, Fellini’s Cafe, KFC, Landmark Americana, Larry’s Steaks, and Taco Bell with additional off-campus locations coming soon.  For the latest information about the Hawk Card visit www.sjuhawkcard.com.

IT’s Jill Cleary was featured in The Hawk’s article, “Hawk Cash Simplifies Commerce On and Around Campus”, describing the great reception the Hawk Card has received from the campus community.   The Hawk Card is a welcome upgrade at SJU.  Let us know your feedback!

Taking a Closer Look at Spyware

Microsoft© defines spyware as a general term used to describe software that performs certain behaviors, generally without appropriately obtaining your consent first, such as:

  • Advertising
  • Collecting personal information
  • Changing the configuration of your computer

 Spyware is often associated with software that displays advertisements (called adware) or software that tracks personal or sensitive information.” (Microsoft©)

Spyware and related adware are often downloaded from a web page, by following a link in an email, or are installed with freeware or shareware without a user’s knowledge.

Spyware is used to track your Internet activity, redirect your browser to certain web sites, or monitor the sites that you visit. Spyware may also record your passwords and personal information to send to a malicious web site.

In an article on Venturebeat.com, one-time hacker Gary Pejski describes in detail how he and his team created spyware that could “change the home page of the computer, modify the search provider, initiate pop-up ads, and install new programs.” (Takahashi, 2007)

The spyware created by Pejski and his crew launched a pop-up screen advertising a browser enhancementThe key was to trick users into initiating the installation process for the spyware. “Users saw a page that looked like a pitch for free software. If they clicked on the “X” before they unchecked a question box, the software would install anyway. If they unchecked the question box, and then clicked on the X, the software would install. It was only if the user clicked on the left side of the box and unchecked the question box would it fail to install. Every time the pop-up appeared, it pretty much led to the installation of the software.” (Takahashi, 2007)

Be on the Look-out:

So how can you tell if spyware’s been installed on your computer?  According to ArticleWorld.net, “If you do have spyware on your PC you can usually recognize the signs without the “help” of a rogue anti-spyware program. For instance, too much spyware will bog down your system and cause your computer to run slowly. You will probably be overrun by an excess of pop-ups and fake alert messages. In addition, your homepage and list of favorites might suddenly change and reappear even after restoring the default. Other things to look out for:

  • A new browser toolbar emerges without your consent, which is impossible to remove
  • Every time you conduct an online search the results are redirected to an unfamiliar search engine
  • Unexplained calls to 900 numbers begin appearing on your phone bill
  • Any anti-spyware or security programs you do have installed stop working
  • Your modems send and receive lights blink continually even when you are not doing anything online (Mitrou, 2006)

 Avoid Being Seen:

Now that you know a little more about spyware and how it might affect your computer, here are some things you can do to prevent it from taking control of your machine in the first place:

  • “Read the freeware and shareware license agreement to see if adware or spyware is mentioned before installing the software.
  • Choose to “Close” any pop-up windows by clicking on the “X.”
  • Do not respond to any dialogue boxes that appear unexpectedly; click on “X”. Clicking on “No” or “Cancel” sometimes installs spyware.
  • Beware of visiting web pages which are untrusted.” (State of New Jersey)

 If you feel that spyware may have been installed on your computer, please contact the SJU Technology Service Center (TSC) at x2920  or by email at techhelp@sju.edu.

Remember: The TSC will NEVER ask you for your password or Social Security number.
