StreamArmor: Powerful tool for removing infected streams (ADS)

StreamArmor is a powerful tool for discovering and deleting hidden, malicious alternate data streams (ADS) from a computer system.

Alternate Data Streams (used in NTFS file system) provides virus coders with a method of hiding rootkits (malware) on an infected machine and allows them to be executed without being detected by virus scanners. Normally ADS are not malicious, but some malware has been designed to leverage ADS to conceal itself.

StreamArmor comes with fast multi threaded ADS scanner which can recursively scan over entire system and quickly uncover all hidden streams.

With advanced auto analysis coupled with online threat verification mechanism makes StreamArmor the best tool available in the market for eradicating the evil streams.

StreamArmor (portable, freeware) is very simple to use. Just rum, select a drive and click Scan button. It can be downloaded from here.

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it. Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. ( via )
