The c’t security tool Desinfec’t has been released in a revised version in the 2023/24 version. The special issue c’t Desinfec’t 2023/24 with the tool as a download is now available at kiosks.
Detect and eliminate viruses
Desinfec’t helps Windows users who fear that a Trojan is wreaking havoc on their PC. After downloading, all you have to do is install the security tool on a USB stick. Thanks to the Live Linux system, you can start Disinfec’t instead of Windows and examine the operating system from a safe distance. After all, malicious code cannot cause any further harm in a shut down Windows.
You can hunt for viruses with the virus scanners from ClamAV, Eset and WithSesure. This also works on hard drives encrypted with Bitlocker or VeraCrypt. To ensure that the scanners can also detect current malware, free signature updates are included for a year. If the scanners sound an alarm, tools help to classify possible false alarms. If this is ruled out, Disinfec’t helps remove Trojans.
Since the desktop is similar to that of Windows and we have removed many Linux tools that distract from the actual purpose, even computer beginners should be able to use it. If nothing works, call the family admin for help using the integrated TeamViewer client.
