WinPatrol 9.8

Quote
"WinPatrol 9.8 is smaller and faster. We've optimize our code and cleaned up portions which have been around since WinPatrol was first released in 1997.

We've also closed another common backdoor for Spyware by montioring the registry key commonly known as AppInit_DLLs (O20).

WinPatrol PLUS now monitors a number of non-tradition Startup locations found in the registry including:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ShellServiceObjectDelayLoad (O21)
Used by CDBurn, PostBootReminder, SysTray, WebCheck
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\SharedTaskScheduler (O22)
Examples:Browser preloader:UI Library, Component Categories cache daemon
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellExecuteHooks
Examples:Browser preloader:Shell, Microsoft AntiSpyware Service Hook

In the past we've spent more time on serious security issues and have neglected WinPatrol's cookie management. We've cleaned up our act and this version will help you manage your cookies with much better efficiency. For those who don't really care about cookies our changes will make sure cookie monitoring features don't slow you down"

SE1R79 09.12.2005 is now available, new definition file for Ad-Aware SE

Updated definitions:
====================
Malware.SpyAxe +5


Additional info on this update

Quote
We have received numerous reports from customers and users about the ever increasing problem
of SpyAxe.

SpyAxe is an Anti-Spyware application which is currently known to be installed without user consent.

Users can be misled by a fake 'Windows Update' message generated by a trojan, claiming that ''Your computer is infected'' and advising you to click a link to install SpyAxe.

Due to the increase in complaints and variants in the last few days we are releasing a rapid response update to address this problem.

You may update your Ad-Aware application by using the webupdate feature, or by downloading the definition file from http://www.lavasoft.com/support/download/

Hi, Brent! pc on the fritz. just got back online with a new lappy.
Got the free McAfee virusscan & firewall on it through Comcast, but nothing else yet.
Should I worry about loading it up with the free malware progs I've been using on the desktop, or  be more selective?
Thanks, meg

Hi Meg,

In addition to your AV & firewall, I would recommend that you also install Ad-Aware SE, Spybot-S&D, and SpywareBlaster. I believe that for the most part, this is pretty much all you need.

If you feel the need for anything else, I highly recommend Ewido Security Suite, which detects a wider range of malware than anything else I have used.

I received an e-mail this past week which included the Backdoor.Breplibot.o trojan, and Ewido was the only one of my several security programs that detected it. Even 5 days and 2 updates after submitting it to them, my regular anti-trojan program fails to detect an infection in the file saved on my USB flash drive.

Hope this helps.
