How do I determine IF SEP CAN detect a specific virus???
My wife's company (school) recently had a virus outbreak of 'Password.exe sexy.exe Virus".
Not sure what they are running on their network (?? win 7 ?? and some version of Norton). But the IT guy gave her a Kaspersky disk since he told her that Norton wont detect the virus.
my wife has to use a USB stick to bring work from home (home computer operating SEP 12.1 on Win7 ) and then use it at school. They obviously dont have usbs blocked although 90% of their computers are internet blocked or very highly restricted. Short of it - WE THINK we are not infected; but dont know for sure.
I have seen multiple forum discussions about this virus (a few from 2011 and 4-5 discussions in last 3 months). But besides Symantec employees begging for the virus file so they can add to the defs.... I have seen NO CONFIRMATION anywhere that it was actually added to the defs. Where can I go on the webpage or in my system on computer to find out if this will be caught by my normal virus scan or not?
I tried running the Kaspersky disk as a rescue disk to scan the computer and it found nothing but I was using 2012 virus defs from the CD as I couldnt connect to the internet while booting from the rescue disk. So I am not sure her computer is safe or not. IF is actually true Kaspersky will find and SEP wont.
I am operating on a Mac w/ SEP 12.1.671 so not too worried about my system picking up something from hers but still would like to know for either system (MS or MAC) how do I tell if the virus defs will identify something that is KNOWN TO EXIST on another network that we HAVE TO INTERFACE with?
