What are super malware and how to defend yourself

Super malware are platforms capable of launching and managing thousands of hacker attacks with invisible viruses simultaneously

Considering the numerous dangers that the web hides, which have grown especially in recent years, it is necessary for users to be able to defend themselves. Hackers have several weapons at their disposal, which have become more and more sophisticated and difficult to detect: super malware is one of them.

As you can also guess from the name, super malware are not simple malware. In fact, the main feature that distinguishes them is that they are very powerful. They affect their victims even if they are protected by antivirus software. Alarm systems installed in computers do not even detect them. Thus, super malware penetrates machines undisturbed and allows hackers to complete their "missions". We could even define them as a kind of invisible Trojan horse. Super malware is the evolution of simple malware and that's why it's so scary.

Super malware

Super malware is the new bogeyman you'll have to deal with. The dangers are many. Not only for individual users, but especially for companies and institutions. It seems that behind these malicious programs there are expert hackers in the pay of states and nations. On the other hand, nowadays most of the wars are fought not on the battlefields, but mostly through computer violations.

We said that super malware are malicious software. Actually, that's not really the case. More than malicious programs, these viruses are malware platforms that can handle thousands of attacks at once.

How to defend yourself

Although they're scary, they're still malware: they're unlikely to strike without the unintentional cooperation of their victims. Assuming responsible online behavior is the most effective weapon. This means paying attention to suspicious emails, avoiding opening links or attachments from unknown senders. Don't download apps and programs from unofficial platforms.

As cybercriminals' tools evolve, so do protection systems. You should update your browsers, computers and smartphones frequently. Also, make sure your antivirus is updated to the latest version.
