View Full Version : Please explain HTA and HTAstop
April 30th, 2002, 06:42 PM
I'm just learning how to secure my computer. *I see in the Wilders downloads a program called HTAstop. *It's suppose to protect against vulnerabilities in Microsoft's HTA. *Could someone explain HTA-what it is, what it does/allows. *Also, explain how HTAstop protects against this. *I read the developer's summary of the program, but I am still just a little bit confused. *

There's a fine explanation available from PSC:
Since this isn't exactly a privacy issue, I hope you don't mind me moving this thread to a more appropriate forum.

Paul, I still a little dense on this subject. *Could you or someone give me a simple explanation?

Gnostic - I tried a simple search (using Google from my Opera browser) , using 'HTA exploits' as the search term (without the quotes) and got hits to a number of articles that explain it pretty well. There are too many to go thru here, but by the time you finish reading them, you'll have a pretty good grasp of the subject. Pete
