    September 27, 2005

    Starting today, F-Secure launches its flagship consumer product, F-Secure Internet Security(tm) 2006 containing a highly automated package of well-integrated antiviral tools and advanced features to protect families against the evolving dangers of the Internet. These modern-day threats include spyware, adware, spam, invisible rootkit worms, inappropriate content and phishing. F-Secure Internet Security(tm) 2006 also offers help for families looking for ways to control their children's Internet usage. Also launched today is its streamlined sister product, F-Secure Anti-Virus(tm) 2006.

    One of the key features of F-Secure Internet Security(tm) 2006 and F-Secure
    Anti-Virus(tm) 2006 is real-time integrated antispyware which tackles the problems of inadvertently-installed spy- and adware commonly downloaded when file-sharing e.g. games, music or other entertainment content. This is the first antivirus product to detect spyware before it is installed on a PC.

    Both new software packages also integrate the unique F-Secure BlackLight(tm) technology, released earlier this year to tackle the problem of advanced stealth malware called rootkits. Rootkits often remain hidden from a user's computer operating system and undetected by current security products allowing a convenient backdoor for hackers.

    And for users tired of spam assaults in their mail, F-Secure Internet
    Security(tm) 2006 employs Real-time Blackhole List functionality (RBL) support in its antispam feature. RBL uses a database of verified spammer IP addresses and those of spam gangs and related services to take the accuracy of spam detection to a higher level. This feature also helps fight common phishing-techniques. Also, for those clients using modem connections, F-Secure continues its Antidialer functionality to ensure against unexpected phone bills resulting from hacker exploits.

    With the family in mind, F-Secure has also engaged a new child time lock feature in its Parental Control functionality in F-Secure Internet
    Security(tm) 2006. Families with children can now not only screen their young against Internet sites with questionable content but also define sensible time limits for them to surf the Internet.

    Other features of note in F-Secure Internet Security(tm) 2006 and F-Secure Anti-Virus 2006 include a software user interface to the F-Secure Virus World Map where users are presented with geographically grouped descriptions of known virus infections around the world and an intuitive e-learning tutorial. The tutorial, which is available in English, German, French, Swedish and Finnish, has been designed to fluently guide users how to work with the different features of the product and to understand the principles of data security.

    I just did!

    Resource hog! Same as 2005 or even worst

    No feature to add suspicius files into quarantine and then submit them for analyse.

    Email settings unable to change (greyed). For example if i get virus.zip it will be downloaded if I did not set it to scan ZIP files before...
