    Here's a real noob question- what is the difference between Wormguard and exec protection in TDS-3? Do I need exec protection if I have Wormguard active?
    Thanks,
    Richard

    Hi Richard,
    yes you still need exec protection installed when running WormGuard, as WormGuard is checking all kinds of different files and code in other ways then exec protection does, which checks the moment of execution of any executable; i don't think you have "exe" in your WormGuard blocked files list :)

    For some reason I was under the impression that all wormguard did was check for multiple extensions - I swear the only time it intercepts a file is when I have multiple extensions and it NEVER lets a file go with multiple extensions. So it looks at code too?
