The Total spelling test is an annual educational event that has been held since 2004. It aims to draw public attention to the problems of literacy and help people improve their language skills. People who like the Russian language will gather at numerous sites worldwide for the dictation just like they used to when they were schoolchildren.
In 2017, Doctor Web became the official partner of the Total spelling test and invites Dr.Web community members, as well as everyone who dislikes relying on auto-correct features in text processors but wishes to verify their literacy, to join hundreds of thousands of event participants and take the test on April 8.
The event will be held worldwide and will take into account different time zones so everyone who wants to participate can join in, free of charge. You can take the test online at totaldict.ru or go to a test center in your neighbourhood. A complete list of testing locations has been published on March 29.
How well do we know the Russian language? Find out with Dr.Web on April 8.

The highlight of the promo bundle is the new Doctor Web product Dr.Web Katana. It offers protection against new, not-yet-analysed malicious programs that can’t be detected by non-Dr.Web anti-viruses whose virus databases rely on signature-based methods, including heuristic routines. Dr.Web Katana ”understands” malware behavioural patterns and can neutralise threats that exploit zero-day vulnerabilities. It doesn't conflict with other anti-viruses and doesn't require configuration. And it consumes only 36 MB of RAM.
Customers who purchase the bundle will get Dr.Web Katana free of charge to protect their Windows PCs and tablets.
Today, email is the main transport mechanism for malicious files and links to bogus sites. With anti-virus protection for mail servers, employees can work from their personal devices and computers in any part of the world without risking infection with unknown malware. Dr.Web Mail Security Suite is the second product in the promo bundle. It will not only scan inbound email but also check messages when they are being accessed, so that threats that have been invisible to the anti-virus at the moment of intrusion will be neutralised.
The third promo bundle product—Dr.Web Gateway Security Suite—will scan all inbound traffic in a corporate network to prevent intruders from infecting the network and employee personal devices—nodes on which the installation of an anti-virus is difficult or impossible.
- Licenses that offer protection for 25-250 email or Internet-gateway users can participate in the promo.
- When you purchase the promo bundle, you can protect 25-250 PCs with Dr.Web Katana’s non-signature technologies free of charge.
- If you buy the bundle to migrate from a non-Dr.Web anti-virus, you save 50% on mail-server and gateway protection!
- And one more important thing to consider: all Dr.Web users can request free decryption services when their data gets compromised by Trojan.Encoder programs. To date, more than 90% of the people who have contacted us for decryption assistance have been users of non-Dr.Web anti-virus software.
