The URL as a Malware Security Engine

Can a lowly URL protect you from malware?

So what happens when that latest malware is written in, well, something non-english.

A few Irish eyes are probably crying this week, since a new strain of malware now features the Gaelic language, and for most people, it might as well be Latin. So what's a developer to do for his customers. After all, teaching everyone Gaelic is out of the question.

Using an OEM solution that provides URL protection against such maliciousness is a much easier solution and much more comprehensive (it is also more convenient for developers and end-users). incomes has a variety of malware categories and selecting what feeds are desired is easier than learning Gaelic.

inCompass® by NetSTAR handles malware, even Gaelic coded malware, with ease.
