    TrojanHunter 5.3 Build 994 Released


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Version 5.3 of TrojanHunter is now available for download:




    ________________________________________________
    TrojanHunter 5.3 Build 994 (Released 2010-03-15)
    (Beta 1: 2010-02-25)

    Improved bug reporting

    Fixed a problem where the presence of NTFS alternate data streams attached to directories was not being reported

    Improved deletion of alternate data streams (now correctly removes directories and is also able to delete specific alternate data streams as opposed to all alternate data streams associated with a file)

    THCL: Now states "No trojans found" or "%d trojans found" in scan report

    THCL: Copyright year updated

    Fixed bug causing exception if scanner was closed when a right-click scan was running

    Added "A scan is running. Exit anyway?" confirmation if user tries to close scanner when a scan is running.

    Fixed bug where TrojanHunter was not scanning shortcut files correctly when doing a right-click scan.

    Fixed problem with right-click scanning RAR files not working

    Note: If you have Trojan Hunter 5.2 installed be sure to uninstall that version before installing this version which is 5.3 as it leaves the 5.2 folder with all the old files in C:\Program Files

    Got it. Did uninstall, reboot and clean install. Copied my key to the TH program file for 5.3, deleted the remnants in the/and the 5.2 folder and initial tests all running smooth.

    Really happy to get this release out there :) And no rest, just started working on TrojanHunter 6.0 today. There'll be a lot of significant improvements in the next version series...

    In order to avoid uninstall/reinstall hassle, I'll stick with 5.2 till 6.0 is out. *puppy*

    The two big things will be improved rootkit detection and removal and also a unique new technique with regards to removing trojans.

    I'm going to try to explain it in non-technical terms: Imagine that your body gets invaded by a virus. The immune system will then get rid of the virus and also manufacture antibodies so that if it ever encounters the same virus again in the future, it can quickly kill it before it gets a hold in the body again.

    The new removal engine will work the same way, and this will help prevent stubborn trojans reinfecting the system. It will adapt to the way the trojan works and prevent it from being reinstalled once it has been removed by TrojanHunter.
