    this forum is biased!
    what will be intersting is, when it does get released... will it be a part of the suite, or a seperate tool to purchase like norton did.

    Well, what would be even more interesting to know is, if it´s really effective or not. I just installed it on my VM, and it doesn´t seem to be a full blown HIPS, looks more like a lightweight firewall that´s checking for suspicious inbound/outbound connections, but I might be wrong. :rolleyes:

    It phones home, so you just get a new trojan ;).

    It must phone home because it asks whether that "ip" or "address" -that your computer connects- is bad.

    Seems so boring. It just monitors some network traffic without stopping the malware. It rather asks u to launch House Call. Useless!

    Yes, on their Website you can only read the word "watch" and not "block". In combination with some Home calling it is like a Datatracker or maybe a better Trojan.

    Bah, what a bad Programm, it's a Gag.
    If you have a really bot on your machine, the best thing is to reformate, but not using "House call".
    You are right it is useless !!!, I'll give it a pass.

    It doesn't detect the activity of several Storm-variants.
    As you probably know, although Storm (Peacom, Zhelatin, Peed, etc) most commonly called "Storm-Worm", it is not a worm, it's a bot.

    While Storm was connected to other infected hosts, RUBotted doesnt detect the activity.

    I just sent an e-mail to TrendMicro. But they do not support free tools.

    Is this concern still valid?

    Also, personally I would find it ridiculous for Trend to actually charge money for this, considering it doesn't do that much (in contrast, for example, to Norton Antibot). - just my .02 euro bucks :)
