File Malware

There are many forms of hostile or intrusive software, including computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, ransomware, spyware, adware, scareware, and other intentionally harmful programs.

How to protect yourself from file malware

  • Harmful content

Be wary when opening Microsoft Office-associated files as they may contain content that can be harmful. In cases where the image below is displayed, be especially wary as the file contains a script that can be executed against your machine

  •  Unauthorised Applications

Pay special attention to warnings that an application or service is about to be started. There is no reason that any document from Standard Bank group will ask you to perform such an action

  •  Dridex Malware

In extreme cases, malicious parties have been known to execute Dridex malware, which can hide behind functionality you are accustomed to seeing. This is a method of imbedding malicious software or scripts within a file and tricking a user to execute such software or scripts through user interaction.
