We @ Tweakbytes.com are very pleased to announce our HitmanPro.Alert Christmas 2017 Giveaway We would like to thank HitmanPro.Alert's Mark Loman for donating the licenses for this giveaway. Overview HitmanPro.Alert is a solution that provides real-time protection for home and business PCs to guard against prevalent and zero-day software exploits, drive-by downloads, crypto-ransomware, online fraud, espionage and identity theft. It protects your computer systems even before new and undiscovered threats are formally addressed by security updates and antimalware solutions. Disrupting the Cyber Kill Chain® Alternative endpoint security solutions only focus on blocking malware delivery from web pages and email attachments, but HitmanPro.Alert also recognizes the capabilities of more devious attackers. HitmanPro.Alert is purpose-built to disrupt attacks in real-time across the entire threat life-cycle or Cyber Kill Chain®. HitmanPro.Alert not only offers exemplary exploit technique prevention and advanced malware remediation, its many Risk Reduction features also limit motivated and skilled attackers' abilities when they do succeed in compromising the endpoint. CryptoGuard stops ransomware The exclusive Risk Reduction features of HitmanPro.Alert include behavior based protection against high-impact crypto-ransomware, a prolific threats that slips by web filters and antivirus defenses every day. This type of infection --also generalized as cryptolocker --goes after images, documents, and other personal and critical data on local disks and networked drives. Cryptolocker malware encrypts the computer files of its victims and demands ransom money for the decryption key. The signature-less operation of HitmanPro.Alert's CryptoGuard technology universally prevents spontaneous encryption of data by cryptolockers. Even when trusted files or processes are hijacked for unsolicited encryption --as observed in cryptolockers "Vaultcrypt", "CryptoWall" and "CTB-Locker" --it is stopped and reverted by HitmanPro.Alert, without interaction from users or IT support personnel. Risk Reduction Other Risk Reduction features focus e.g. on anti-espionage, such as kernel-based Keystroke Encryption, Webcam Notifier and BadUSB Protection. Moreover, Vaccination and Process Browsing and Application Lockdown reveal malware that hide inside or attempt to piggyback on trusted programs to gain persistence or hoist additional payloads. Whether computers are targeted indiscriminately or singled-out in a watering-hole or spear-phising attack, HitmanPro.Alert offers high-performance protection without requiring virus signatures or prior knowledge of attacks. The install-and-forget software is just 5 MB in size and runs on both 32-bit/64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10.

Added Sticky Keys mitigation, which prevents abuse of the Microsoft sticky key feature and is typically used by attackers to gain persistence. Added Application Verifier mitigation, which prevents abuse of the Application Verifier feature of Windows (eg. Double Agent code-injection). Improved Asynchronous Procedure Call (APC) mitigation to improve compatibility with third-party security solutions on Windows 10 version 1709 (Fall Creators Update). Added protection against dropping shellcode straight into memory from VBA macro code. This mitigation is part of Load Library and triggers a Shellcode alert.
