    But I thought, MS released the new APIs for kernel patching in SP1. Bowing to demand by security vendors like McAfee,Symantec and Kaspersky o_O

    Anyways, other vendors seem to manage. So it looks a little odd :doubt:
    Ok, I got the PDM notification enabled. Thanks :thumb:

    Probably to a degree, but not full access... even in SP1.
    P.S havent read through the article completely, but it seems a bit old, 2006-12-21 :)

    Kaspersky virtual keyboard is as safe as comodo, all keylogger tests passed but KIS2009 is by far not as safe as its virtual keyboard.;) BTW who needs a keylogger tester that only uses 1 test? AKLT 3.0 is by far better.

    Thanks for testing LoneWolf. I only tested it very quickly. I'm glad someone did the proper experiment. Now we have the right results :thumb:

    I don,t think these are definitely good results. Point to consider is that how many false positive alerts u will get in paranoid mode.

    It seems a file heuristic analysis rather than a behav analysis to me but I may be wrong.

    In 8 days or so of running Mamutu in paranoid mode I've gottin few FP's, which were well explained in the alerts. All in all not bad IMO.

    But "suspicious file layout" detection has nothing to do with logging, as aigle said this is heuristic alert of some kind...alert should be exact

    Hmm.. As far as I know, with SP1 MS has opened kernel patching using API available only to Gold Security Partners.
    The article is about the first draft APIs released to security vendors, to appease them and the anti-trust case lodged against MS in EU courts. Hence the old date.

    My guess, is that since KIS 2009 was released almost at same time as Vista SP1. They might not have incorporated these APIs, but hopefully now in MP1 those APIs will be used ( just like how other vendors have done).

    Just removed it...:p

    But if anyone else tests FS 2009, do disable the option to connect to FS servers to cross-check a file as a part of new DeepGuard 2.0

    When I run keylogger test from Zemana, and then load Ubuntu which is my guest using Virtualbox, Zemana keylogger doesn't record any keystrokes at all from Ubuntu.

    This means 2 things.

    1. Zemana keylogger is flawed.

    2. Keyloggers cannot capture anything written inside the guest Ubuntu.

    Anyone know for sure?

    Is there a FREE program for Vista that scrambles and encrypts all keystrokes entered?

    Free..I don't know, but you could use Keyscrambler personal for the browser and some addon for messenger(windows live).. Other than that you can only pay for KeyScrambler pro or premium,since it supports also im programs and password managers.

    No, but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn last night.

    It has been over a year since I used Prevx and there have been some, "changes" in it. Nothing major, but proof enough to me they have not abandoned it, unlike Geswall.:cautious:

    Marcos is here, and where they decided to go with their support forums was a mistake in my viewpoint. But I did a update on a old license I had after installing and it said it did 103 security updates. But, but, this is today. It is time for Prevx to give all of us a glimpse of the future, as I know for a fact, they dont have a current beta program going. That I dont like. There are a few other issues I have, but folks who know me well, know I will hound you to death until you step up to the plate here, and let Wilders members know something.

    I will repeat because it seems you did not understand. Because Keyscramber on Windows won't keyscramble what I type into ubuntu firefox

    I use Ubuntu for netbanking. However keyscramber wont work on Ubuntu linux Firefox.

    I hope that clarifies it for you.

    So that is why I need a program that runs on Windows (my host) that will encrypt all keystrokes, so then any keystrokes typed into Ubuntu (my guest) will also be encrypted.
