F-Secure Exploit Shield now available

F-Secure has announced a technology preview program of its latest Exploit Shield technology, which is now available for free download for testing purpose. This application safeguards users from web-based malicious exploits, driven by downloads or by vulnerabilities in IE or Firefox browser and stops malicious programs such as Trojans, spyware, worms, viruses, backdoors, etc (malware) at the first point of infection.

Exploit Shield provides protection against ‘zero-day’ attacks, which is come to pass in unpatched machines. Since a zero-day exploit patch is not really available from the software vendors and an open security hole in software always allows exploitation, F-Secure Exploit Shield has greater importance, because it ensure protection against these attacks even before patches are available from the software vendor.

The highlights of the F-Secure Exploit Shield include: “Protects unpatched machines even before patches are available from the software vendor, One 'shield' update per vulnerability stops all exploits targeting it, Heuristic detection techniques block exploits even for unknown vulnerabilities, Protects against both malicious websites and good websites that have been hacked, Automatically sends detected malicious URLs from users to F-Secure”.

The F-Secure Exploit Shield (beta) can be downloaded from http://support.f-secure.com/beta/estp/estp.shtml and it likely to incorporated in F-Secure security solutions in around 2009.
