whats in sig only and absolutley love it.
Multi layer defense . Basically, HIPS and sandboxing. And virtual surfing if needed.
Windows 7 x64 Home
SpyShelter Firewall, ExeWatch, ThreatFire, Sbie (Paid), Emet 2.1.
Hitman Pro, Emsisoft free scanner, Mbam Pro. 3 on-demand scanners.
Windows in-built imaging.
Running XP Home Edition SP-2 with IE 8.
SBIE, Keyscrambler, Malwarebytes on-demand, and Comodo Time Machine- all freeware and WinPatrol Plus with real-time monitoring.
Eraser for secure file deletion.
Imaging via freeware versions of Macrium and Paragon.
MBAM realtime is a blacklist based 'add-on', so do Wilders members count this as a naked setup yes/no
I dont count it as naked if any AV or AM are running real time,its just titled differently.
Not in my book im affraid
Okay, okay point taken!
Realtime is disabled
not much really.
running the Gufw front-end for the kernel firewall in Ubuntu 12.04
NoScript anf Keepass.
Terabytes IFW/IFD/IFL for imaging.
Just Comodo Firewall in real-time, I really think is more than enough.
Sandboxie Pd., Private firewall, LUA.
edit: No JRE or Adobe reader here either.
If it weren't for the fact that I have to have a real-time antivirus enabled in order to connect to my work VPN, I wouldn't bother with real-time antivirus. I would just do occasional on-demand scans.
For me, a combination of system-wide policy restriction (AppGuard) and system-wide virtualization (Shadow Defender) behind a router is enough real-time security. It provides silent but effective protection with no popups or decision making on my part.
No AppArmor restrictions on access?
that sounds like some complicated stuff that not doubt will allow me to trash my computer properly.
Shadow Defender + secure add-ons with FF
I haven't had a single infection for the last 5 years, while surfing 8h+ per day on average, including online banking and trying lots of apps all the time, with the following setup (100% free!):
LUA+google chrome+WOT+Tiny Watcher+HitmanPro+googDNS+winFW. NO IE, JAVA, NO ADOBE (most common threat gates). I also recently added the excellent little-known ExeWatch to my setup.
Os: xp sp3
Yeah, awesome thread. The "what's your gear" threads are my faves.
64bit: Comodo FWD+
On demand if counting these:
Norton Power Eraser
CCleaner allowed to clean Temp <24hours
Chrome Dev. C2P. No Java.
Also like Safe Online browser components of Prev/Webroot, but they also by default include AV, so /nfm??
Using The highly hated Trusteer Rapport on my dad's computer. Seems to be holding things down. Sometimes incompatible with Fox updates (what he uses). Biggest improvement was ditching Java for him. No, really.
Sandboxie + LnS + EMET
random choice of portable internet browser -> sandboxed by sandboxie
EAM on demand
No Java, No Adobe, NO IE
I can't put my self to try SRP, maybe I will someday
update : almost forgot, my other main protection is virtual machine running linux distro / windows 7
Why not try this? -hxxp://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=297834#post1862599- It's SRP, but much more simpler and works with Starter and Home editions
Via Parental Controls
yes, I haven't tried that
but it seems much simpler, will give it a go in the future
Yea it is it has whitelist function, very simple
Comodo Firewall & Defense+ Sandboxie and HitmanPro.
I have asked it before and will do it again. Using Parential Control as an executable control is really a brilliant way to use this. It deserves its own thread with a small setup guide. Who has the time and knowledge to post?
Combined with the deny unsigned programs elevation of UAC (through registry) makes a super solid security setup (and super light) within hand reach of every Win7 Home owner.
So who shows how it is done?
I used to use Parental Control as anti-exe. But I noticed this behavior in my box.
1. You can't install a software in your Standard User even if you allow the setup and run as administrator. (I can't remember if an error will show up or nothing will happen.)
2. To install on an admin account, if you are currently logged in as Standard User, you must restart and log in to your admin account. If you just logged off, the same thing will happen in case 1.
