This the second time in 2 weeks I heard that Sandboxie was bypassed (only responding to last post, see http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1395925&postcount=1) It is my guess that 99,999999999999999% of the times SBIE is bypassed, it is due to user error or misconfiguration. Sandboxie I hope that Sandboxie fans will take this into consideration when a new member enters Wilders and everyone advises him or her Sandboxie. I deliberately entered an 'critical' Sandboxie discussion which led to sharing of knowledge (http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=229492) not because I am against SBIE, but a security application is a tool used by somebody. So the user is part of the solution/security chain. Comodo Free The same applies to Comodo FireWall fans, it is my guess that 50% of the people advised are far better of with the free products of Online Armor or PC Tools FireWall. People pressing OKAY on Comodo's popups are not nesseceraly blessed with improved security. There is a nice German site about fake security (ScheinSicherheit or someting like that), I would ask the members of wilders (and specifically the fanboys) to take the level of knowledge required into consideration. SAS and MBAM Free SAS and MBAM have gotten a magical healing reputation. Luckily those applications can not be misconfigured (only one post I know of which caused an accident http://www.wilderssecurity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=35 ). But it would help when people would also advise to create a restore point before removing found malware. ThreatFire As much as I like this application I can not understand why it is configured by default to NOT create a restore point before Quarantaine (while TF offers this option). The lack of listening to user request (Deny) is stated enough in Wilders, so once the sweet heart it is now critised on Wilders (with reason, so I agree). So everyone advising TF should also explain how you can activate this option in TF, otherwise you could well get somebody in deep trouble. Hope this post is food for thought Security starts with an image and data backup/recovery plan. This is commenly forgotten, The feeling of having an Iron cast/bullet proof security only reduces the need to have a backup/recovery plan. When I am told on as a newbie on an "expert" forum that I can get this incredible security (for free), buying an external harddisk and proper backup/recovery software is not a priority on my agenda.
