SocketShield 0.9.5 Beta

by admin May 1, 2006 at 5:19 pm

SocketShield is the world’s first dedicated zero-day exploit blocker. Using a unique combination of research technologies, a deep understanding of anti-malware techniques, and skilled coding, the software is able to block exploits from entering your computer, regardless of how long it takes for the vendors of vulnerable applications to issue patches – or how long it takes for you to install those patches.

As the name implies, SocketShield works at the socket level. Sockets are the points of entry used by your computer to allow programs to be downloaded from the web and other sources; these sockets can be opened and closed to enable or prevent downloads. SocketShield uses the knowledge gained through its multiple research channels to determine whether any download is an exploit and to close any socket that a known or suspected exploit is attempting to use.
