    Can anybody please provide a valid SHA1 or MD5 checksum for the ProcessGuard v3.410 setup file. I still have my unlimited license key but I no longer have the setup file. I have sent emails to DiamondCS requesting the file but I have had no response. I have found another copy from a non-reliable source, but I would like to validate the files integrity before I install it.

    The original download link is dead.

    http://www.diamondcs.com.au/processguard/pgsetup.exe

    Thanks.

    Greetings and a warm good weekend to you LinuxKungFu

    Welcome​


    All this is very disturbing because these very useful and proven dependable apps are surprisingly slipping into the TwilightZone time and again. I refer also to FirstDefense-ISR in this mix.

    I hope only encouraging news in response to your request but seems like some BEST of the BEST apps are rapidly falling off from it's customers/users radar screen as of late.

    I share your concerns and wish you all the luck for a satisfactory answer.

    With Kindest Regards

    EASTER

    Hi LinuxKungFu

    I don't think DiamondDC is a functioning entity. If your non reliable source is some kind of crack site you won't find much help here. I am suspicious of your request because the file and MD5 is available at the site. I just checked.

    All I need is for somebody who has the original ProcessGuard v3.410 setup file to generate the SHA1 or MD5 checksum and post the results here.

    The checksums of my setup file are as follows...

    SHA1: f18364516e62511cd9a0a214e82679a93b6eb8
    a0
    MD5: 6736eea11c739e945c51a79fd4587e09

    Thanks.

    The MD5 checksum available on the DiamondCS site is for the freeware version v3.150 and not for the latest version.

    Thanks.

    There is a saying in Texas, that no matter how much you kick a dead horse it ain't going to get up.

    That covers ProcessGuard. I would suggest moving on to another newer and better program.

    Almost any discussed here. Online Armor, Prosecurity, SSM, EQsecure, just to name the ones I can think off. Plus all offer support. DCS.....

    Controler, thanks for the MD5 checksum.

    It confirms that my setup file is valid.

    Yup I tried SSM and Online Armor not EQsecure or Prosecurity.

    I know SSM in not for novice users, at least PG was a bit more user friendly.
    It is too bad DCS gave up. They did know how to program and usually were way ahead of the competition in advanced software.

    I wonder how the new ones work against the new Rustock versions?

    As antiexecutables, classical HIPS have demostrated to be 100 % bullet-proof.
    When malware is loaded into memory, some HIPS might fail to detect some attempts to subvert the system.

    I suspect the problem was "they" didn't know how to program, Jason did. And when he left, they couldn't fill the void.

    Really Jason?

    You don't think Wayne could program? Not to mention Gavin. LOL

    If you know something the rest of us don't know about DCS please share. I did not see you mention any of Jasons programs in your list of great programs.

    No I juar observed what happened when he left. As to ghost, nothings been released, so for personal reasons he slowed down. When done, his software will probably be the most techically advanced. Just in their present state the would drive me crazy with pop up's

    Bad guys.

    :D :D :D :cool: Indeed. Lol.
    But I also like this relict from the past, I was deeply involved in this period of first anti-rootkits that massively enforced my interest in IT security since then.

    Process Guard is still a nice anti-bifrost tool.

    I still have Process Guard and it works. Does it need to be replaced?

    "Process Guard is still a nice anti-bifrost tool".

    What does that mean?

    Isn't Online Armor a full firewall? It could not be used with ZA free?

    And does it have a stealth mode in the fre version?

    Thanks

    David

    Yes it does have stealth mode in the free. If you don't want to use the firewall part of online Armor you can uninstall it.

    Bifrost trojan if executed will brute force unhook PG's SSDT hooks effectively wiping out its control capabilities.

    That said a PG user with execution control enabled would still have to *allow* the trojan code to execute in the first place for this to become an issue;)

    PG is still the *big iron* for executable files:)
