VoodooShield takes a new approach to computer defense

  1. jmarket
    VoodooShield is a security program that is unlike most traditional anti-virus programs. Instead of scanning your computer for known malware or using definition files to detect infections, VoodooShield instead locks your computer so that you are notified when an unknown process is started. It uses what is known as whitelisting. This allows you to lock down your computer so that it only executes applications that you specifically whitelist and denies all other programs. This makes it impossible for an application to run without you first giving your express approval.

    When first run, VoodooShield will start in Training mode where it detects the legitimate applications that you normally run. It adds this list of running processes into your whitelist and allows the programs to run without asking for your permission. Once VoodooShield is out of Training Mode and turned on, it will block any unknown process from running and ask if you wish to allow it to execute.

    PCHF recommends VoodooShield as it is light, free, and works well with anti-viruses and anti-malware. The free version will do just fine, but in order to modify any settings and to take advanced "snapshots", you need to get the Pro version. It's only $19.99 a year, but is highly recommended. If you don't wish to buy it, the free version will do just fine :)
