Virus Activity – dedicated to online security

Virus Activity is a project aiming to help users browse online without any fear of running into a malicious website, app, or service. Our receptor database can be used to develop different tools aimed to provide information and keep users protected from potential threats.

Researches show that online security is becoming one of the most important fields while seeking to prevent unauthorized access to the system. Our job is to find dangerous websites, applications, and services, identify their violations against certain requirements, and notify users about them. In addition, we seek to raise users' awareness of the most active computer infections and let them know about the global virus activity level. This is the principle that our deceptor database, so it is the source of requirement violations.

VirusActivity WordPress Plugin shows the malware activity at the moment in the world and can be useful for various security sites that run on the WordPress platform. This is a separate piece that sites can add on their pages.

Our team has been analyzing malware since 2004. We have accumulated a solid amount of knowledge about cybersecurity, so today we are ready to move one step further and offer you an extra layer of security.

Virus Activity database used to identify deceptors

We log risky behavior that poses potential harm to users worldwide. Some software developers can use the Virus Activity as a service provider to ensure security online with deceptor identification. You can find tools developed based on our database.

By alerting users about potentially dangerous websites, apps, and services, such extensions or programs provide an additional layer of online security. The extension, for example, can work based on a particular Deceptor program that follows AppEsteem Deceptor Requirements and Virus Activity Rules.

The tool should be meant to inform people about deceptive or misleading content, programs, and sites that can be considered harmful. We are not developing any application but might be supporting the program with information about the deceptor -related issues and violations.

If the website is found violating any of our requirements, e.g., applies risky behavior and deceptive techniques, it is included in the Deceptors database. As a result, a tool or extension that uses Virus Activity as a database, warns users by showing a special alert on their browser before they take action, e.g. download an application or add their personal details.

The goal is to ensure that people could browse the web, install, and use applications without risk. A full list of Deceptors and Rules on VirusActivity.com are updated repeatedly and constantly. 

Virus Activity WordPress Plugin – exposing users to information about malware activity worldwide

Virus Activity WordPress Plugin was created to help website owners take their sites to another level by providing information about malware activity on a daily basis.

Having in mind that the number of cyber-attacks keeps rising, we believe that it would be relevant for everyone to know when the virus activity level is increased and which threats are the most active. This information could help users take precautionary measures in advance and prevent system damage, identity theft, and money loss.

The information provided by WordPress Plugin is updated every 24 hours. While the low Virus Activity level tells that there have been no recent malware attacks spotted, the highest level encourages users to take the precautionary actions, e.g. update the operating system and antivirus programs, stay away from suspicious-looking emails, be careful with scams, etc.
