Kali Linux 1.0.5 x86-64 with Metasploit and Armitage vs. Windows XP SP2, no additional updates, various firewall and antivirus software setups plus the latest Firefox Attacks are via the LNK and Aurora exploits. --- Panda Cloud AV - Blocks the LNK attack. Does it the cheap way though, by recognizing the DLL as a known bad one. - Doesn't block the Aurora exploit (go figure). - Panda GUI can be killed. Fortunately that doesn't prevent it from working; however... - It doesn't prevent migration to other processes, including migration to Panda's own service! Ouch. I don't think I should even be able to do that, since Panda runs as the SYSTEM user; but there is the evidence right in front of me. - Keystrokes can easily be recorded, screenshots captures, etc. - I can inject code into the AV's services. It doesn't see anything at all. Conclusion: this product isn't worth it for free, and wouldn't be worth it if you were being payed to use it. Avoid. PrivateFirewall: - Very good against network attacks. Noticed all manner of scans, and prevented any from getting useful info (even OS version). - Works against EXE payloads; my unsigned EXE was unable to run. - Bad against everything else. Screenshots can be grabbed, files and processes tampered with, and keystrokes can be logged.[/url] - As with Panda, code can be injected directly into the firewall service. Conclusion: does what it says on the box, but that that doesn't count for much. Don't try this on a public wifi network, folks. --- More coming soon!
