Attackers are targeting DSL routers this week with what’s being called a potent new variant of the Mirai malware that knocked offline major Internet companies like Twitter and Spotify last month.
At CeBIT in Hanover, T-Systems CEO Reinhard Clemens said: “Customers are often unsure when it comes to security software. Since the Snowden revelations, they are also anxious and asking for a ‘made in Germany’ protection solution. Deutsche Telekom wants to make it easy for as many people as possible to secure their smartphones and computers. That is why we are expanding our existing offering to include an easy-to-install package version from Germany.”
Our very own Avira Antivirus will take care of the security part of said package and protect your Windows PCs and Macs, smartphones and tablets with the iOS and Android operating systems, and servers and networks against malware, using an integrated real-time scanner. Thanks to its cloud-based scanning Avira Antivirus achieves unparalleled security and lightning fast performance. Of course it also reliably scans your downloads, folders, and hard disks.
“Avira Browser Safety” will be included in the package as well. The browser extension protects personal information when surfing the internet and blocks malicious websites as well as tracking by advertising networks, so that they can no longer track what a user is searching for or purchasing online.
The free offering is available to download with the market launch in the second quarter this year at www.telekom.de/schutzpaket. A premium version of the offering with additional functions is planned.
