Security & Technology News / Webroot releases our 2016 Threat Brief
« on: February 23, 2016, 04:46:01 pm »
Key findings from the Webroot 2016 Threat Brief include:
  • Malware and potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) have become overwhelmingly polymorphic, with 97% of malware morphing to become unique to a specific endpoint device. By changing attributes to evade detection, polymorphic threats pose a major problem for traditional, signature-based security approaches, which often fail to discover singular variants.
  • Approximately 50 percent of Webroot users experienced a first contact with a zero-day phishing site, as compared to approximately 30 percent in 2014. This data indicates that zero-day phishing attacks are becoming the hacker’s choice for stealing identities.
  • Technology companies, including Google, Apple and Facebook, were targeted by more than twice as many phishing sites as financial institutions, such as PayPal, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America. These tech companies are targeted because the same login credentials are often used to access many other websites, resulting in multiple compromised accounts with each phishing victim.
  • 100,000 net new malicious IP addresses were created per day in 2015, a significant increase from the 2014 average of 85,000 a day indicating cybercriminals rely less on the same list of IPs, and are expanding to new IPs to avoid detection.
  • The U.S. continues to have the most malicious IP addresses of all countries. In 2015, it accounted for over 40 percent of all malicious IP addresses, a significant increase from 31 percent of malicious addresses in 2014. Top countries hosting 75 percent of malicious IPs include the U.S., China, Japan, Germany, and the UK.
  • As with malicious IP addresses, malicious URLs are largely hosted in the U.S. (30 percent), followed by China (11 percent). Furthermore, the U.S. is by far the largest host of phishing sites, with 56 percent of sites within its borders.
  • In the second half of 2015, 52 percent of new and updated apps were unwanted or malicious—a significant increase over the first half of 2014, when only 21 percent were unwanted or malicious.

Security Software / WinPatrol
« on: September 25, 2015, 11:30:27 pm »


WinPatrol allows you to get a better understanding of what programs are being added to your computer. It monitors important system areas that are commonly altered by many malicious programs. This includes the startup groups (registry and startup folder), cookies and active tasks. You can terminate processes and enable or disable startup programs. The cookie monitoring option allows you to automatically delete cookies based on a keyword found in the cookie name. Additional features include a WHOIS lookup tool and an option to alert you on changes. WinPatrol is easy to understand, yet quiet powerful.
As a robust SECURITY MONITOR , WinPatrol will alert you to hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. WinPatrol PLUS includes our unique R.I.D. technology. As a MULTI PURPOSE SUPPORT UTILITY WinPatrol replaces multiple system utilities with its enhanced functionality.


WinPatrol was the pioneer in using a heuristic behavioral approach to detecting attacks and violations of your computing environment. Traditional security programs scan your hard drive searching for previously identified threats. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. You'll be removing dangerous new programs while others prepare to update their definition/signature data files.

WinPatrol is NOT:
• Likely to conflict with other security programs you rely on.
• A huge drain on your system resources or performance.
• A yearly subscription or program only designed to help if you pay to upgrade.
• A signature based system that relies on already identified threats.
• A program that will update itself automatically without your knowledge.
• Going to connect to the internet unless you explicitly request info.
• Going to install any addition crap or toolbars on your system.
• Supports Windows 98 - Windows 7 including x64 systems.

Capture Your Screen and Communicate More Effectively
Snagit gives you a simple way to create and edit screenshots or record videos to show a complex process, give detailed feedback, or share important information with the people who need it most.
  • Capture your PC and Mac - Capture an image or video of what you see on your computer screen. Record Skype calls or Google Hangouts with audio. Instead of traveling on site, capture meetings and interviews that you can watch and review later.
  • Enhance screenshots - Snagit is way more than just a snipping tool. Every screenshot can be customized with professional-quality markup tools. Quickly show what you're seeing without the frustration of writing out long, detailed explanations.
  • Deliver results - Show others instead of struggling to explain it. Whether you need to capture a website, record an online meeting, or send someone quick feedback in an email, Snagit screen capture helps you deliver key information.
Quickly capture your desktop screen
Snagit’s image and video capture is powerful, but not complex. All-in-One Capture® grabs your entire desktop, a region, a window, or a scrolling window from any webpage or application—all with a single hotkey or click.
  • Snagit screen capture interface
    • Image capture - Make sure to capture exactly what you need. Click and drag anywhere on your screen to select a region with pixel perfect accuracy.

    • Mobile capture - Capture beyond your desktop. Get TechSmith Fuse for your Android or iOS phone to send photos and videos from your mobile device straight to the Snagit editor.
    • Scrolling capture - Quickly capture a full-page screenshot even if it's not showing on the screen. Grab the horizontal, vertical, or entire scrolling area with just a click.
    • Panoramic capture - Capture wide, horizontal scrolls, infinitely scrolling webpages, and everything in between. Capture once, instead of taking individual captures and manually editing them together.  See How it Works   
    • Create Animated GIF - Turn any short screen recording into an animated GIF. Perfect for showing off quick tasks and workflows.  See How It Works
Turn plain screenshots into clear, concise communication
Comment over screenshots using text boxes. Point out your ideas with arrows and shapes. Or simply highlight key areas. And Snagit's toolbar is completely customizable so all of your favorite tools stay front and center.

  • Add callouts, shapes, and text - Add personality and professionalism to your screenshots with a variety of pre-made styles, or you can create your own.
  • Resize images - Get your images to the correct size, right down to the pixel. Use the Resize option to enter new dimensions to scale the size of the image.
  • Snagit stamps - Personalize your images with stickers specifically designed for screenshots. Get the latest stamps straight from Snagit, or download previous stamps here.
  • Special effects - Add effects like border, shadow, and torn edges to your entire screen capture. Or, create your own custom style.

  • Video trimming - Quickly get rid of any unwanted sections from your screen recordings. Remove ums, ahs, coughs, extra time from the beginning, middle, end, or any mistakes you want to correct.
  • Record audio - Include audio in your videos from either a microphone or your computer’s system audio.

VoodooShield / VoodooShield Releases Thread
« on: July 14, 2015, 06:04:17 pm »
Traditional blacklist antivirus software attempts to block the 15,000+ new viruses a day. Antivirus companies cannot possibly keep up with all of the new viruses. VoodooShield will block all the executable code (including viruses), except the software you allow. Most viruses attack through Web browsers. VoodooShield uses a proprietary proactive whitelist approach to virus protection. When used properly, VoodooShield will effectively block ALL email and browser-based viruses and malware. VoodooShield is extremely fast and lightweight.

Since VoodooShield is completely different from traditional antivirus software, it is VITAL that you understand how it works in order to use it properly. Training VoodooShield is much easier and quicker than you would think. On average, it takes around a total of 10 minutes to train VoodooShield. Once VoodooShield is trained, you never have to worry about annoying AntiVirus pop ups and scans again.

• Added compression utilities to the vulnerable process list
• There was an extremely uncommon silent blocking issue when VS could not determine the absolute path, this is fixed
• Blocking in Disable / Install Mode should be fixed, if not, please let me know
• Regional bug when the system time was changed to a different format should be fixed
• Drag and drop and the right click context "VoodooShield Scan" now supports all file types
• Logging bug fixed
• Too many command lines were being added to the list... should be fixed
• Xcopy was being blocked by batch files
•"Threats Blocked: x" to be a clickable button that leads you to the UI section that shows your quarantine/blocked was added
• A lot of other small fixes
