Main two questions is 1) How are you preventing drive by downloads? Just turn scripting off and suffer the hassles? or? And does turning scripts off give full protection? 2) For those not concerned with outbound, why? (Are you that sure you are immune from drivebys, primarily zero day that AV misses). My reasoning/situation. I have gotten malware/virus on my computer once in past 8 years, my wife ~5 times. All were via internet infested pages. (My wifes AV has probably blocked a hundred over 8 years) Not concerned with inbound since using router, and my software firewall past 8 years always says "0 access attempts". My wife is european, works on websights, and has to use internet explorer most of the time. Some of European forums/sites occasionally have issues with malware. Turning off scripts makes her work difficult (she refuses to). She has gotten her bios and registry hosed a couple times from zero day exploits which AV missed. That is a minor irritation. The real concern is she got malware one time which an outbound picked up trying to phone home. While outbound is necessary on her computer, prevention is obviously better. Greenborder was a godsend sandbox for a few days, until we realized it continously corrupted IE links, which made it unusable. Sandboxie is not bad, but there are some issues with her work, and it slows down browser by a second or two, and she thus wont use it. From our point of view, 100% of risk is via browsing. Our only real security threat is driveby downloads, more for wife than me. Especially to those who dont think outbound is important, (ie those that are confident they can keep malware off their computer), how do you stop driveby downloads? Is there something I am missing? Do you just turn off scripting and suffer with the irritation or? My wife did try using firefox with noscript (even though not convient for her work), but she got malware using that, ? it was a site she whitelisted, which later had malware vs other). So back to IE as more convenient for her. Any other ideas on safe web browsing that I am missing? Greenborder has right idea, it was just poor implentation, not to mention they are no longer in business.
