Secunia: Tests of Badware Protection Suites

October 14, 2008 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

I in particular have suggested that Threatfire, RUBotted (RU botted? as in, which is NewSpeak), and at least one or the other of WOT (Web of Trust)/Haute Secure–as well as an anti-virus application be used, along with Secunia’s free update-checker…at least.  Here is at least somewhat of a validation.  If you could, I’d suggest using more than one AV program or suite, but don’t try it because they’ll conflict, each detecting the other’s actions, with the first-installed usually coming out the winner.

I’d suggest that if you buy an anti-virus suite you use the free programs noted above.  The answer to “Why?” is in the “here” link above, to the comment by Secunia.  FileHippo, by the way, is a very poor second to checking updates on programs.
