That's a very good idea, it would be nice to have paretal contro guide
Faronics Anti-Executable and Sandboxie.
3rd, I am planning on creating a LUA and Parental Controls and then creating a new system image soon.
I have LUA & SRP on my XP desktop, no exceptions in the firewall, xp firewall and netgear router, firefox with several add ons and 3rd party cookies blocked, DEP enabled for all programs...you cannot get better speed and stability and security is more than enough for me.
Chrome + Sandboxie on 3 machines and Chrome + Shadow Defender on my son's computer. Anti malware scanners are still the quickest way to to check downloads and anti-executables for default-deny strategies.
So, hmm.. Why havent anyone done eny kind of setup guide? I find it surprising, as like you said it's an excellent addon for security. I do have the time to make one The problem im facing is that i dont have enough knowledge to make full setup guide, registry goes over-my-head. I did find one nice link from 2010, it has lots of info on the subject including the registry (deny DLL's). I hope this helps, would do the guide if i could
CIS Defense + & AppGuard
Well that's really all that one needs
proactive protection is always good to have
It sure is. Oh! And I'm unable to send you any PM right now. It says, 'Daily PM recipient limit reached - PM system temporarily disabled.' So I'm gonna send the PM tomorrow if you know what I mean.
dont worry man i recive a pm from you j? are you there or some like that
yeah but after that I cannot send any pm. I've hit my limit. Anyways, I think a very strong combo without realtime av is Faronics AE + sandboxie + Chrome + Image for Windows.
Delete your send Personal Mails (also from sent items folder)
Just BasicLinux 3.5 and my own code to run newer stuff.
PS. BasicLinux 3.5 predates Win 95 16 bit prerelease version!
At essence I don't trust any third party to be able to definitively judge whether anything on my system is or isn't bad, so I take it for granted that it is unless I know it. Hence following a clean install of OS and programs my system is monitored for any changes by scheduling elevated deep scans with Tiny Watcher on system idle for 20 minutes. Any change = wipe and load.
To proactively reduce the likelihood of infection I tighten the threatgates by connecting through Norton DNS and adding Noscript to Palemoon and Content Blocker Helper to Opera. Opera, Flash, PDF reader, the Office application, and Windows Mail are also protected by a forcefield of sandboxes.
To match the coverage of the Threatfire/Defensewall combination on my 64bit machine, I'd probably need to run a firewall/HIPS like Online Armor with Sandboxie, but I'm not sure how much better it would be than the Windows 7 firewall and a router.
I thought threatfire was basically dead? It hasn't been updated in ages and the forums are desolate. I eventually just stopped using it because it didn't seem to add anything to my security setup.
Its just in a coma, nothing special. They have had said their team was working on an "improved" version, but hear nothing yet
Hopefully they'll wake up soon it used to be one of my favorite pieces of software in it's prime.
Yah, I miss it too
Just got product update, atleast so threatfire says. It showed 2612kb worth of product updates + 64kb database updates. After this exewatch alerted:
Product version appears to be the same: 220.127.116.11
They didn't say anything on their forum
To go with Sandboxie, I'm now running Privatefirewall instead of Mamutu.
Nope Got updates to database today again. Weird
Well good to know they update the blacklist data base of ThreatFire
Separate names with a comma.
