As reported, if there is still an urgent need to update programs, then all downloaded files must be checked with an antivirus. Sberbank has also asked software developers to tighten control over the use of external source code.
“Currently, cases of provocative media content being introduced into freely distributed software have become more frequent. In addition, various content and malicious code can be embedded in freely distributed libraries used for software development. The use of such software can lead to malware infection of personal and corporate computers, as well as IT infrastructure,” Sber said in a statement.
