    Pretty cool, Prevx now has a realtime monitor up on the website that shows what programs are triggering alerts of various system areas. We're always looking at HIPS and considering what protection options are really worthwhile, but I think this is the first that I've seen of anything resembling statistics of what's triggering each of those kinds of alerts, and it's in realtime at that. There's a lot of information to soak in there, apparently Prevx1 is seeing something like 30,000 new things per day, but it's pretty well layed-out. Earlier today showed a lot more things on the "blackboard" than now (as I write). Some things are obviously benign, but I'm sure that will get better as the database fills up more, and it's still interesting to see what kind of things are triggering those kinds of alerts with behavior blockers. Since this is Prevx1's heuristic data, stuff that's obviously bad you know is going right into the database, so it's also a bit like getting a peek behind the scenes.
