Last month we've announced
HitmanPro.Alert and today we release the first BETA version
HitmanPro.Alert is a free tool that mitigates Man-in-the-Browser attacks by informing you when a known or unknown Trojan infiltrated your browser. Keep your money and personal data safe during online banking, shopping, social networking, blogging, gaming and more.
HitmanPro.Alert is is designed to run alongside installed antivirus products. It is not a browser plug-in
but a small windows service that checks web browser's integrity.
Supported Web Browsers
- Google Chrome
- Internet Explorer
- Most browsers based on the above list, like Maxthon, Pale Moon, TorBrowser, etc.
More information here
HitmanPro.Alert shows a so-called Flyout window to notify the computer user that the browser integrity has been checked and that no anomalies have been found. When the Flyout window disappears HitmanPro.Alert keeps monitoring the browser in the background.
Note: You can click on the grey Flyout window to get additional options (like suppressing the Flyout).
If HitmanPro.Alert finds an anomaly in the web browser then an Alert Dialog is shown with an option to view the anomaly details. In addition there is a button to scan the computer with HitmanPro to remove the threat.
You can uninstall HitmanPro.Alert using the standard Add/Remove Software control panel.
- Beta version is English only
- Beta version is incompatible with Trusteer Rapport

For Windows XP, Vista, 2003, 2008 and Windows 7.
NOTE: This is a beta release so it is not recommended for use in production environments.
