    Hi All

    I have a specific question about Defense Wall, and been searching without finding the answer.

    I like the concept of Sandboxie, where something runs isolated, but gives me the ability to pull out a downloaded file, and then simply blow away anything and everything else. I also believe Bufferzone has this capability.

    My question is can I do this with Defense Wall?

    Thanks,

    Pete

    iirc, Defensewall does not do file virtualization. Someone correct me if im wrong.

    No file system virtulisation - it will leave untrusted bit in place for manual delete

    Peter,

    You are welcome. I am happy to see that you are considering the use of an application sandbox.


    Peace & Love,

    Do I need an application like DW if I'm using FD-ISR along with other HIPS progams (see programs I'm using listed in signature)?

    it all depends on you - I use FD and defensewall

    I don't depend on FD for security

    Just started to use DW. So far I like it. Nice addition to my setup.

    Well, it depends on if you can use your OA HIPS in full effect. As about FD-ISR- well, it won't protect you from keyloggers and data theft, for instance...

    I fully agree with you as a FDISR-user since March 2006.
    FDISR is NOT a security software in any way, FDISR doesn't recognize malwares and doesn't do anything about it either.
    If you don't use any security software with FDISR, your computer = honeypot.
    It seems to me that alot of users are confusing security with recovery. :)

    Thanks for all of the input guys. I guess I'll try installing DW on an extra FD image of my of my primary and do some compatability testing.
