Windows 7: ExploitShield New zero day protection

ExploitShield New zero day protection

A poster in another thread posted asking about this new free Beta product. I installed it last night after making new system images. I doubt I'd have a need for it, but wanted to see how it played with my other active security, and what kind of resources it uses.

I show 1 process and in monitoring it's usage it remains very low. I have Avast!, Comodo Firewall with Defense+ on, Malwarebytes Pro, Superantispyware Pro, Zemana Antilogger, Winpatrol running in real time, and no conflicts whatsoever as of yet.

Note this is a Beta software, and I am not recommending it, but rather making you aware of it. They are discussing it at Wilder's, and the creator is posting in the thread as well. If you are interested in checking it out.

Running this with AppGuard on my Windows 7 x64 machine, and no real time AV, just HitMan Pro and MBAM as on-demand scanners. While I haven't seen (and don't expect to) any alerts from ExploitShield, it does run without any issues, and uses almost no resources. It has one process that averages 1.5mb of RAM, with no disc I/O to speak of. I love the concept of nothing installing itself on my machine, unless I specifically initiate the install.

This approach does require a little more user input when intentionally installing/updating new software when compared to a real time AV, but knowing that my machine is bullet proof, is well worth the few clicks of extra effort. No more downloading the latest malware definitions that are already a day late and a dollar short in protecting from the latest threats in the wild, is one of the best side affects that AppGuard & ExploitShield provide.

ExploitShield has a lot of potential. There's a very positive review of the .7v Beta at Pcmag.com and a long thread at Wilderssecurity.com.

So far, it's like Spyware Blaster. In so much that you don't even know it's there unless something happens. Hoping the Browser version stays free. A Guy

One thing I like is it protects multiple browsers without requiring plugins.

One small issue I see is the tray notification icon is gone after my PC comes back from hibernation - beta bug no doubt. Anyone else seeing that?

Thanks, that's good to know. I don't think you can access the UI without the tray icon so they're going to have to fix that.

pbust said that he is aware of the icon issue and hopes to have a beta update out fairly soon. (If you don't know who or what pbust is, he is one of the developers of Panda Cloud AV, and ExploitShield is his newest venture. He is a good guy.)

Yeah, I remember Pbust from the Panda Cloud AV threads. Glad to hear this is his baby
