I wish Xiaolin would add protection for these two activities.
I tried it too, when executing the test, prevx said threat detected, I then clicked ignore to do try tests.
Keylogging - It is able to log the keystrokes when typing with the testtool in the foreground, but not when typing in a form on the https site.
Webcam capture - Is able to make a screen capture.
Screenshot - error
Clipboard - fails, even works when doing it inside a https website
System protection - blocked
Sound record - seems like fail, but the created sound file doesn't contain any sound, even when making lots of noise, so is blocked is some way
I'm using v188.8.131.52 with safe-online(all default settings) on Vista HP SP2 32 bits.
I have called this thread to Xiaolin's attention. I'm hopeful that he will visit here when he finds time to do so.
By the way, the Password Manager that I use provides for "obfuscating" ClipBoard entries when used for entering private information. Even so, I would be very happy if Xiaolin added Clipboard protection to Malware Defender in the near future.
IMHO, it's not critical security activities. I will think about it but have no plan yet.
Thanks for visiting, Xiaolin. However I must disagree with you concerning the fact that MD does not protect against ClipBoard monitoring. Other HIPS (such as Online Armor) DO protect against Clipboard monitoring. Why shouldn't MD offer equal protection?
Many less-experienced computer users use the clipboard to cut & paste private information into Logins. A ClipBoard monitor can readily steal this information. PLEASE add Clipboard protection to MD.
Got to say, never heard of SpyShelter before now, so thanks to guest https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=266798
From the various tests so far it looks like a very good App, and therefore a serious contender.
Have the full version of Zemana and tried the AntiTest.exe myself, after allowing it through ProcessGuard. Also have PE Guard by OPS installed on PowerGuard, and not a peep from it ? We shouldn't really expect to see blocks by AV etc with tests such as these, as they know that they are NOT real malware. I didn't get any alerts from Prevx or Antivir. Whether this is due to what i just said, i don't know, but i hope so.
Don't have a webcam, and no microphone is permanently connected. Zemana gave me a prompt on all the other applicable tests, and blocked all attempts at capture etc, nice.
Thanks to all the testers
AntiTest.exe along with the Zemana and other tests, are all very useful tools.
By the way, Zemana now updated to v184.108.40.206
Threatfire passed the webcam, system protection and sound test with this file. Lol.
did any body tried mamutu?
I second that!
Online Armor 220.127.116.11.Free:
Keylogging -- Fail
Webcam -- Pass (but said Key Logger Detected )
Screen Capture -- Pass
ClipBoard -- Pass
System Protection -- Pass
Sound Record -- Couldn't test this
Rising Free AV 2010 only passed System Protection (and I didn't expect it to pass others, it isn't meant for that)
was it not pushed to the auto updates yet, cuz i checked and says no new update in the program and shows an older version.
well i do have A2 running, but Zemana caught it all so not sure, ill try disabling zemana and try
cool man thanks
Hi i updated via the inbuilt checker, as you can see it's definately v18.104.22.168.
ye it just updated like an hour ago, it just wasnt pushed thru wen u posted i guess.
Thanks for publishing all the tests. Saves me some work. Feeling very comfortable with my OA++/Zemana combo now.
in my win7-32bit, CIS v4 can pass all of spyshelter's test except sound record because i am not sure that it passed the test.
but spyshelter 3.1 cannot pass the clipboard test in through-the-eyes-of-a-keylogger_v1_0_0
i think this tool will be good to run with an antivirus but when you run a program that already protects your keyboard is not needed
Currently running NIS, Mamutu, SAS Pro, Zemana, WinPatrol Plus resident.
When I first tried to run antitest.ext, NIS kicked it immediately to quarantine as a threat.
I allowed it, and Zemana caught:
Webcam (I normally keep it disabled, but turned it on for this test)
Mamutu popped up first catching System Protection, so I don't know how Zemana would do there.
Sound recorder was allowed. So, not bad given that I don't use any programs that require me to use my built-in microphone other than Rosetta Stone. So if someone wants to hear me practicing Welsh, more power to them.
