    Wontok doesn't seem to be compatible with any of the updated versions of FF, IE, or Chrome.

    A pity that they did not compare it with other banking protection. Isolated browsing in Kaspersky, Avast, BitDefender, Gdata, Comodo would have passed their new browser extensions attacks. Probably the results by Wontok would have looked less impressive. :D

    Ok. CIS VK is different than all others. It is not special design for financial transactions.
    I think, Isolated environment cant protect against Financial malware. Malware can do what it want inside virt. env.
    CIS HIPS doesnt protect if malware is running Fully virtualized, AV also.

    Well, the help link posted above seems to clearly refer to banking and shopping. Or financial transactions is only meant while at wall street in trading stocks? :D

    Then if you don't agree on what they say its another story... and actually very much OFF TOPIC to the current thread. ;)

    Sorry if I appear rude but that seems to be an utterly stupid remark to make.
    How could you possibly know that they would pass - unless you have some inside information that is not available to others.
    You can assume they would have passed and they may have done so had they been tested but to say they would have done so when they were not tested is silly - we simply do not know at this time.

    Yes, its an assumption based on the fact that the mentioned security tools do not allow alien extensions to run within the browser (like Trusteer).
    A simple deduction. Of course I cannot be 100% sure. :)

    Where did you find it?
    From Comodo;

    http://help.comodo.com/topic-72-1-451-4738-the--virtual-kiosk.html

    Virtual Keyboard is not enought for banking.
    You can browse internet without fear because your host system will not infected if malware run under vk. This is not security! Because malware is running and it can leak everything

    Yes there is, no need more conversation about this ;)

    It seems that it was independent first, and then acquired by Wontok.
    I'm not sure if this is the case, but I find it happens more often that articles about supported browser and OS versions are outdated and show incorrect information. I checked it out in a VM, but it's still on IE9.

    Screens:
    Tray icon and taskbar button(during installation, it asks if you want the button)
    SC1.png
    Warning to move into secure desktop when visiting banking site
    SC3.png
    Moving into SafeCentral
    SC2.png
    SafeCentral with hardened version of Firefox(About shows v13.0.1)
    SC4.png
    Settings
    SC5.png

    When switching back to the normal desktop(leaving securedesktop and browser running) and checking task manager it uses 8 processes:authpluginserver.ex (1.780K), authupdaterservice.exe(2.184K), firefox.exe(43.300K), safecentralloader.exe(1.844K), securedesktop.exe(10.948K), SHSrv.exe(1.216K), SHUIDetectSrv.exe(592K) and updater.exe(5.908K)
    Oh, during installation it installs Java, and worse v6 update 34 which is about a year old.
