    they are including an auto-run manager(osam) ;)
    This innovation allows our customers to use the product on infected machines. Сначала с помощью интегрированного в OSSS модуля поиска вирусов и руткитов OSAM необходимо удалить вирусы, а потом настроить превентивную защиту, чтоб забыть о вирусах навсегда. First, using an integrated search module in OSSS viruses and rootkits OSAM to remove viruses, and then adjust the preventive protection, so forget about viruses forever.
    very cool :)

    FWIW OSSS 1.3 scores a perfect 340/340 on the Comodo Leaktest Suite. Does this suite (Comodo Test Suite) accurately emulate the described methods or is it mainly a pr app?

    It's a nice looking app with alot of features but in learning mode it asks a ton (or tonne depending on your location) of questions.

    I'm not seeing OSSS sandbox nor antivirus (except for submit checkmarked autoruns files for online analysis).

    apt.exe test (old leaktest) jacks up OSSS. OSSS fails to protect explorer.exe and svhost.exe. At least according to the termination test.

    I was referring to this.
    Seems they mean that HIPS can act like a policy based sandbox.

    The OnlineSolutions roadmap indicates the OSSS final release will be a "System Expert HIPS".
    http://forum.online-solutions.ru/viewtopic.php?t=244
    Their business model is possibly unique, in that they apparently intend to offer the automated "expert" functionality only in the for-pay version of the final product. In other words, both the free and paid versions will provide the means to create custom, granular rules... but only subscribers receive the "expert", minimal popup ruleset. To me, this represents a refreshing approach, in contrast with vendors who offer a crippled (no custom rules, or limited custom rules creation) free version.

    In their support forum, I've read criticisms mentioning that OSSS shows potential but has too many popups. Gulp... I've been thinking the opposite. Not specific to popups, I cringed at seeing the app "recognize" and whitelist so many apps in the default ruleset. (FWIW, the current Comodo D+ is similarly too generous, too trusting, in auto-recognizing and whitelisting apps.)

    Aside from which apps are recognized/trusted, the OSSS default ruleset includes plenty of remarkable (sensible) attention to detail. I especially applaud their choice to NOT grant unbridled network access to "system" application group members.

    Same as when I tested the earlier version, I'm put off by the segregation of firewall rule handling in one tab... and application rules creation in a separate tab. When working on rules for a given application, changing tabs doesn't consider the app rule you were working on -- the view isn't synchronized between the treeview presented in the firewall / applications tabs.

    I am the one (there may be others) that commented on the amount of pop-ups. Since their product is designed for more advanced users the pop-ups are quite informative and necessary for absolute control of your pc. However, for average users this activity would most likely be perceived as annoying and disruptive. OSSS would probably be a powerful tool for most users here and I would even consider using it eventually depending on its development. Overall this product just seems like a fairly well designed HIPS with good granularity, but is that what the market needs, or are they just trying to fill a niche? From what I've seen in OSSS it does what it does well but it doesn't really bring anything new (methods or technology) to the "table."

    *IF* their product were designed for more advanced users... but that's not what I've read. Mihail Fradkov has stated that what we're seeing in these betas reflects the core (foundation) which will support the final product, and that "expert" functionality in the final product will cater to non technically-inclined users.
