DefenseWall on x86 OS.
No security at all except a firewall here on linux mint.
Changed my mind. My vote now goes to....................
sorry but changed it back again to Sandboxie.
A simple test, basically I have passed all with just a browser and my own settings, without an AV or a firewall.
So in response to a previous comment, a browser is more than enough to be considered to be a security application.
Yah, for me Chrome blocked 4 and Bitdefender Trafficlight blocked the other, none of my other security programs even had a chance to kick in first.
and before that it was GesWall.
Still using no antivirus and running windows XP
Interesting, Google Chrome recognizes PrivDog as malware.
If we only limit it to 8 64-bit and still has an active development, then it'd be AppGuard.
Google Chrome blocks all exploits and all drive-by malwares (unless Google Chrome itself has a bug that needs to be fixed, that's all).
The absolute nature of that statement is open to challenge I'd suggest but for others more expert than me. I will comment on the part in brackets though. 35.0.1916.114 when it came out in May addressed 23 security issues including several rated High and attracting $1000 dollars for those who identified them. Another couple on the latest stable build I'm sure.
No application is invulnerable to exploit. Chrome like all good apps is a work in progress. The Chrome developers are to be commended for the work they do in identifying and shutting down potential holes but lets be sensible about it. It is not a security application but can help restrict malicious activity spawning from it's use.
In my opinion you need to restrict browser activity to remain safe. If you think Chrome can do that on it's own, fine, just don't think it can't be beaten. I don't and thats why I use Sandboxie & AppGuard in various combinations because I believe they MAY have contained some of the vulnerabilities (some will say would have added more but way off topic now).
This is why I posted this, because no application is 100% invulnerable and no application protects 100% in any area from exploits, malware, drive-by malware, kernel-level threats/exploits/malware and etc.-that is my whole point, the only question would be which application truly is the most invulnerable and which application protects most, from SBIE4, Google Chrome, ReHIPS, AppGuard, DefenseWall and etc., that was my point here, nothing more.
Separate names with a comma.
