Think Unified, DFW business malware defender, protects SMBS in Carrollton, Addison, and Plano from hacking attacks

As you watch the 2018 Olympics, think IT support services.  Why?  Well, as the 2018 Winter Olympics commences in Pyeongchang, South Korea, McAfee has simultaneously released breaking news on a new type of malware that will have your Dallas business running in search of a reliable outsourced IT provider.

This crafty new malware campaign is delivered via phishing emails with malicious Word documents attached. Users who open the Word docs are encouraged to “enable content”, which triggers an embedded macro to launch PowerShell, then allowing attackers to hide malicious scripts in the pixels of otherwise benign-looking image files, and later execute them directly from memory.

What’s dangerous about this malware is an attacker doesn't need to download an image onto a machine in order to get a script embedded inside it to run on that machine, and your traditional antivirus solutions won’t detect the malware due to the script being hidden inside an image file.
