Antivirus Defense-in-Depth


Yesterday, Microsoft Solutions for Security published a guide dealing with viruses and malware. This is good stuff. Check it out here:

The Antivirus Defense-in-Depth Guide
Microsoft Solutions for Security: The Antivirus Defense-in-Depth Guide provides an easy to understand overview of the assorted types of malware, their risks, characteristics, means of replication and payloads. The solution also details the considerations for implementing a comprehensive antivirus defense for your network, servers and clients which goes beyond simply installing antivirus software into the related tools which will help reduce your risk of infection.
Just what I was looking for, some good weekend reading for the flight to TechEd in San Diego. 🙂

    Great. The installer for this document isn’t signed, so the first thing a hesitant user sees after downloading is "The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?" Great way to instill confidence.

    Looking at the properties for this on my machine, the installer signed by Microsoft and the signature is Timestamped Wedneday, May 19th.

    Cheers,
