I had requested Brian to test GW agaianst some malware samples. 1- Some samples of Robodog trojan that bypasses protection of many Instant Recovery Softwares like ShadowUser, Returnil etc 2- Clean MBR tool, it destroys the MBR and makes system unbootable, again it was bypassing some ISR software. 3- Some MBR and Sector Editor tools. Robodog: I got three samples from some members, not sure if all were for Robodog but one( Conimel.exe) was sure. - cinimel.exe - happy new year.exe - x.exe For conimel.exe and "Happy new year" GeSWall displayed attack notifications- see snapshots. Happy New Year also gave attack notifications and created a autorun.inf in c:\. See snapshots and GW log attached. GeSWall showed no notifications for x.exe. Logs reveal its activity in sending messages in order to conduct shatter attacks. Clean MBR Tool: GeSWall displays notification:And then tool failed( crashed). See snapshot. MBR and Sector Editor tools It was not possible to open a disk or valume by the tools: Sandboxie has an option. that nothing inside the sandbox can access the internet except if allowed by specific rules. Such a feature is there in GW and rules can be made about this. http://www.gentlesecurity.com/blog/index.php/2008/02/03/blocking-network-access Now what,s new. They plan to release a bug-fixing update as a 2.7.x or 2.8. And that would be last release with the current engine. The next version 3.0 would be driven by new code, compatible with x64. It is expected later this year. USB storages handling is a part of 3.0.
