Good read. I'd say what we need most is user education (badly), and for people to not run there computers under the administative account. Those two things would reduce the problems 100 fold.
Yep, very interesting read!!!
Something to read again; thanks TD !
I was glad he mentioned Integrity Checkers, although I have to read that part again.....
A couple of years ago there was a French Anti Virus program, that used behaviour blocking. It had no database, instead it looked for virus type behaviour. I used it for a while and found several articles that said it was a technology whose time had not yet come.
I lost track of it after a couple of years. For the life of me I cannot remember the name of that program, but it did work to some extent.
Anybody know what I'm talking about and if its still around?
Also, I am a beta tester for m@ildefense, by In defense and it works great. I guess I don't know what technology its using, but it is not database. There's no updating to it.
