malware protection

When using the Internet, receiving e-mails or accessing files and documents on removable media (CDs, DVDs, USB sticks, mobile hard drives, etc.) - especially when exchanges take place - your computer is at risk of becoming infected with malware, such as viruses, worms and Trojans.

The possible negative consequences are very complex and range from an impairment of the correct functioning of programs to the loss of data and confidential information, with a resulting significant financial damage or loss of reputation.

The use of an activated and up-to-date virus scanner can - in addition to other protective measures - protect against such impairments. Members of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar are authorized to use the provided protection software within the framework of a license agreement with the company "SOPHOS".
