    I mean, is Prevx aware of such threat... or first time you heard of it?

    To note that:

    SafeOnline fully blocks this approach - if a website is protected, the infection would not only be able to inject itself into the browser, it would be unable to view any requests or modify the browser in the manner described in the article.

    Indeed this technique will cause problems for banks looking to identify malicious users by behavior. Man-in-the-browser protection like SafeOnline and Trusteer running on the user's PC are really the only reliable ways of identifying and blocking these types of attacks.

    Hi Joe,

    nice info, great that SOL blocks such approaches..

    But how does Prevx and BrightCloud compares against Trusteer?

    Is Prevx as good as Trusteer, or will Prevx become with Version 4 (with the help of BrightCloud) as good as Trusteer?

    As it comes to features and technology: http://www.trusteer.com/product/trusteer-rapport

    regards,

    SafeOnline already includes website blocking, DNS triangulation, and IP address validation but BrightCloud will add a number of additional benefits as well. SafeOnline is similar to Trusteer in its concept (blocking man-in-the-browser threats) but it is extremely different in actual operation. I'm not one to say if one product is better than another but we stand behind our approach and it has not failed yet :)

    Thx for the explanation, Joe.

    Now I'm eager to see an external review/comparison between SOL and Trusteer =)
