    Hi Folks,

    I've been lurking these forums for a long time now and just joined :) I seem to remember a long ago there was a HIPS suite released by a company/person in China that was fairly powerful but documentation was scarce due to lack of translation. I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called and I'm unsure which forum to search for HIPS related topics.

    Anyone have any memory of this software? As I remember, it had to be trained but did (as development progressed) eventually have pre-defined settings one could use to trim down the time it took to train.

    I know it's a shot in a dark but thought I'd ask.

    -Chris

    Thanks everyone, it was EQSecure :) Is it still considered a good HIPS product? I'm having some problems locating a compatibility matrix for it (running Windows 7 x64 here)

    Yea EQS appears to be discontinued seen how there is no W7 version.

    This leaves Malware Defender as the one and only HIPS with decent file and folder Rules.

    EQS WAS AND IS PERHAPS THE ABSOLUTE BEST (hips) EVERY TURNED OVER TO THIS COMMUNITY FOR FREE AT THE TIME.!

    AS BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE BEEN ONE OF THOSE TO DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL IT, COUPLED WITH ALCYON'S "OUTSTANDING RULESETS", many they been, EQS still locks down all my xp systems with solid security!

    That's just the small scope of the excitement, or should i say protection it continues to offer to be an app that appeared as just a meager "flash in the pan" as they say, followed by their abrupt farewell.


    Many, many thanks are in order to Alcyon however for raising the bar twenty-fold and really showing what EQS can and still can do even today.

    Sorry Bellgamin if the caps offended or otherwise jumped up too large at ya, i'll try to exercise more control with a little better effort next time to help contain my enthusiasm a bit more in future posts, if it'll let me ;)

    Hola mi amigo. Too bad about EQS's demise. IMO the "definitive" classical HIPS at the present time -- more powerful even than SSM, EQS, ProSec, MalDef, etc -- is OSSS. However, I do not intend to use it, for several reasons which I do not wish to go into right now.

    By the way -- whatever happened to Alcyon? I haven't seen any recent posts by him.

    OSSS more powerful than EQS and MD? that's debatable it looks like EQS and MD has basically all the same features as OSSS. However an interesting classical HIPS which I have not seen before, I am going to give this one a try.

    it has some thing very unique no other hips has and that is that it loads even before windows loads;) so it can catch hidden malware or malware such as rootkits

    yes but i think our other hips drivers also load before windows? anyway the idea is to block the initial execution and installation of rootkits not wory about catching them afterwards.
    can you show me source of this info?

    OSSS loads its kernel pre-Windows - not merely its drivers. Go to OSSS website (where else?) and read the first item under "functional capabilities". Here is a quote. . .

    That statement is repeated again at HERE and on several other pages of the OSSS website. Not all that difficult to find . . . :cautious:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    By the way... OSSS isn't Sino-based. It is Russia-based. So I'm a bit OT. So shoot me. :argh:
