Quick Heal Sets New Standard in Expiro Infector Cleanup, First in the Industry Globally

Quick Heal, a renowned global cybersecurity solutions provider, has achieved a significant breakthrough in the battle against the Expiro virus, a potent file infector that compromises executable files on users’ systems. The company’s Security Labs experts have successfully identified multiple infection vectors and developed a comprehensive solution to mitigate the impact of this malicious malware. As a result, Quick Heal has become the first and only cybersecurity solutions provider to offer a complete end-to-end solution for the Expiro virus.

Expiro is notorious for its ability to append virus code to executable files, presenting a formidable challenge in terms of repair, cleaning, and restoration. Its complex and lengthy algorithms make it difficult to restore the original file, affecting both 32-bit and 64-bit executable files. The latest variant of Expiro Appender further compromises the integrity of executable files by inserting its malicious code at the end of the last section. Moreover, Expiro exhibits advanced capabilities, including data exfiltration, sensitive information theft, and additional malware installation.

Quick Heal’s researchers have identified various infection vectors employed by Expiro, including the usage of cracked or patched software versions, drive-by downloads from infected websites, propagation by other malware, network shares, USB drives, and malvertising campaigns, among others. What distinguishes this version of Expiro from previous file infectors is its technique of storing clean data. While earlier infectors either had clean data directly present or hidden through encryption, this virus employs multiple levels of encryption, combining standardized and custom algorithms to encrypt and store the clean data. The use of custom algorithms presents a particular challenge in decrypting and restoring files to their original clean state.

Therefore, the experts at Quick Heal’s Security Labs have not only analyzed the latest version to understand how Expiro spreads but have also developed a comprehensive solution to mitigate its impact. This solution not only cleanses the infection but also repairs the files and restores them back to their original location. Users no longer need to worry about the challenges of manually restoring impacted applications and files from backups or clean sources.

Dr. Sanjay Katkar, Jt. Managing Director of Quick Heal Technologies Limited, stated, “Our relentless pursuit of cybersecurity excellence has led to a major milestone in the fight against the Expiro virus. Quick Heal’s Security Labs researchers have displayed unwavering dedication and expertise in uncovering multiple infection vectors and developing a groundbreaking solution. Most software currently available in the market doesn’t even detect Expiro, let alone offer cleanup and repair capabilities. Therefore, we are proud to be the first to provide a comprehensive solution that cleanses, repairs, and restores infected applications and data without requiring manual intervention from our customers.”

“This achievement underscores Quick Heal’s unwavering commitment to innovation and our mission to provide robust protection against evolving cyber threats. We remain steadfast in our resolve to safeguard our users’ digital environments,” he added.

With this groundbreaking achievement, Quick Heal reinforces its position as a leading cybersecurity company committed to delivering advanced protection and innovative solutions to its customers.
