    Does anybody know about this software? o_O

    (https://www.prevx.com/)

    The Home version is a freeware (https://www.prevx.com/homeoffice/prevxhome/prevxhome.htm)

    They claim to be an essential complement to existing signature based Anti Virus and Personal Firewall products, the Host Intrusion Prevention capabilities of Prevx Home are the only realistic defense against the latest breed of fast moving attacks.

    Within the simple yet powerful user interface of Prevx Home reside multiple layers of dynamic security settings. These enable Prevx Home to catch and stop new, never before seen attacks at many points where they may attempt to compromise your machine.


    And, more than this, Prevx Home would be able to:

    • Stop ‘Buffer Overflow’ attacks used by Internet worms (such as Sasser) and hackers
    • Stop the installation of malicious files
    • Stop malicious modification of critical files and directories
    • Stop frequently used attacks on Internet Explorer
    • Stop unauthorized changes to critical areas of the registry
    • Stop covert modification of start-up scripts


    The main reason, is because Home computer users remain vulnerable to each new (‘Zero Day’) cyber-attack during the critical period between the launch of a new attack and a “signature” update becoming available. Spyware tools only detect and clean up installed malware AFTER the infection has happened. Often threats are missed entirely by traditional security tools.

    Thanks :)
