With the demise of TDS-3 and in the light of the comments of other anti-trojan software producers about the continued viability of their products plus the fast developing ability of NOD to detect trojans and other malware, I wonder what else do we truly need to burden our computers with. Does the average computer user really need much more than say a good anti-virus prog + a good firewall + say something like Spybot? Are the days of specific AT software over ? Can we go to a much lighter defensive shield given the sophistication of products like NOD32? I know security professionals will hold their hands up in horror , but I am not talking about huge complicated networks, I am talking about the average consumer with 1 or 2 computers connected to the net. Security experts do also have a vested interests in talking up the threat? How many layers of protection do we truly need?
