Now that's a nice RED German Avatar
Back to AIS. Uninstalled PFW.
back to my old love
ZA Antivirus + Firewall
MBAM pro SAS free Octers BAck UP Pro
guess avast didnt last lol
changed My security setup and also need advice
I need something extremely secure to last against targeted attack
cuz my last setup failed miserably with all of the on demand scanner
I'm thinking somthing like :
Avast free :
comodo Fw d+
On demand :
any other recommendation ??
Gesewall maybe ?
If you can afford, just use Sandboxie (paid) and Mamutu or something like Comodo or OA Premium same.
It has better security!
well it's a bit hard to get these softwares in my country or online
the availble paid software
I don't thing a paid anti virus will help
as on the last setup i tried every ondemand scanner with no use
hitman ,prevex ,sas ,MSE ,MBAM ,SBs&d , sophos ARK ,TDSSkiller, Gmer, DRweb, emisoft emregency , blacklight
AVG RD , DRweb RD
so i think it was a fully undetected Rootkit or something
any sugestions ?
Don't you have enough licenses J lol..
lol i am just kidding with trojan
@Ranget just get your hips program ready and a system restore ready or create an imagine with comodo time machine which is free and get hitman pro free just to confirm your system is free and you are set to go
i my self use Online Armor premium and i am planing to get OA++ which has antivirus engines(dual engine)and comodo time machine for just in case OA++ fails me then i can restote my system back to earlier time
Good job you guys keep this thread open as this is the third or forth time i personally post here due to the fact that my defensive set-up is ever changing depending on experiences and problems that might have arisen ; nowadays my set-up is as follow:
1) Avira AntiVir Premium
2) Malwarebites Anti-Malware (Real-time protection)
3) Spybot Search&Destroy (On-demand plus immunization)
4) Windows 7 Firewall Control
5) Dr.Web CureIt!® (On-demand virus check)
6) SuperAntiSpyware (On-demand spyware check)
I run these security application on my home pc and on my laptop both running Windows 7 Ultimate, Service Pack 1
Do you guys think my level of protection is alright? Am i a bit over-zealous maybe..? It'll be nice to have some feedback. Thank you !
haha Apple needs iTunes on linux but it will never happen sadly.
Got the MacBook first thing I did was install Sophos AV Free and Chrome.
Sophos AV Free RT
Chrome w/ NotScript and ADP (Easylist, malware list, social list )
Firewall on set to stealth.
looking for some HIPS or security apps any rec's?
Probably going to buy PGP WDE here (I feel naked with out my WDE )
And finally designing Mac OS X apps and iOS apps so far made 3 of them!
Using drivesentry and its really going strong nothing passed through its grasp yet....
I am curious, (and no offense to anyone) but how do you KNOW a security tool is "solid". I see lots of posts here that go something like this:
I am trying out product XYZ, and nothing gets by it.
Is throwing a few malware samples at it the beginning and end of the test? What is the criteria for claims of "pure awesomeness"?
he mean he didn't get hacked Or infected yet
trust me the best tool that 90% Clean
is to use live Disks
My last security setup was too overwhelming
and it failed miserably
yeap it is solid of personal testing and some advise from others plus you feel protected from malware and what the heck when it does have good recomendations from developers my 2 mexican pesos
Security doesn't have to be overwhelming. You only need to know what you can achieve with the following (IMHO): Operating system and web browser.
If you know how to use those two, then only one factor remains - You.
I can tell you that my main security is how I use my web browser. Anything that may pass through it and touch the operating system, will be in a vegetative state.
hey moonblood is correct
My setup, which I'll probably keep for awhile:
-Only me using the PC (<=major point)
-32bit OS, up-to date, Windows FW enabled
-KAV 2012, customized: FileAV, System Watcher, Proactive defense with all options enabled; other minor tweaks
-Sandboxie (Free; planning on getting a license when I get a chance a credit card), working on some tweaks.
-Firefox with NoScript (blocking scripts from 3rd party sites, allowed only what is necessary) and AdblockPlus (blocking malverts)
-NortonDNS, blocking bad domains.
-Opera running in Sandboxie when going to unknown sites.
-frequently exploited programs (flash, Java etc.) kept up-to-date (as much as possible)
Oh, I thought you were going with the MacBook Air ?
However you feel like a very lucky man
Also...looks like the iMacs will get a refresh tomorrow, (hopefully).
If the refresh isn't a BIG step forward i'll probably go with a MacBook Pro.
But I decide after I have seen the new iMacs

You replied to a post which replied to another containing this.
@Ranget & zorbis: Both of you need disk imaging. Also regular updates using SUMo, Secunia, or something else.
Guess what d00ds.
Finally after 2 months and a week or so i got my pc fixed!
Couldn't fix it before because i had to work but my bro was free and he got some spare parts to fix it in the meantime
I just need to buy a new cheapo dvd writer (LG 21$) and i'm good to go!!
