Zero-day attacks are no longer limited to hacker groups and companies; governments have been exploring the use of offensive zero-day capabilities. In fact, state actors, including the U.S., are some of the biggest customers for new zero-day attacks.

Tamas Kocsis, Managing Owner from SecureNetworx, discusses the integration of the Viper Malware Analysis Framework with Metadefender Core, and how it has provided them with fast, efficient, and confidential malware analysis and scanning.

The Metadefender Kiosk, which protects organizations from malware on portable media, has just released version 3.3.1 on the OPSWAT Portal. This update includes minor bug fixes and event log enhancements to help administrators better monitor the flow of information entering their secured network.
With this release, Metascan and Metadefender customers will be able to use McAfee's Web Gateway, our new Mail Agent UI, and experience the benefits of an updated IIS Express to version 8.0. To utilize this upgrade, we encourage all of our current Metascan and Metadefender customers to upgrade both installations. For those that have their Metascan and Metadefender installations on the same system, administrators must update both installations. Both new versions of Metascan and Metadefender contain mostly fixes and enhancements, and are now available on the OPSWAT Portal.
