*You might be required to remove, updated, or alter some settings. If you do not wish to do so, as you are satisfied with your setup, then just keep your setup as is. This is all based on MY opinion, and should not be judged in any way."

 

This should be done on a clean PC.

 

 

First things first. Update your computer. One simple way to keep your security checked. Update all the drivers, just make sure everything is new.

 

Install:http://secunia.com/PSISetup.exe

 

Use these to disable some common ports that malware uses to get in.

Secure it: http://sniffem.exaserve.net/Hardenit.exe

 

Xp antispy: http://www.xp-antispy.org/index.php/lang-en/download?func=selmirror&itemid=3

 

Disable the following:

Everything under Media player functions

Error reporting

Remotedesktop support

dont sync with internet time

show balloon tips

clear pagefile and shutdown

show last logged on username

autostart cd's

dont report microsoft if sys. was infected

Network crawling

Anonymous network access

avoid automatic links in network neighbourhood

Disable all updates for internet explorer

no error report through IE

Disable all the the things under services

Uninstall microsoft

disable help n support

disable search assistant

 

 

 

Run it, and update all the programs and what not necessary keep you safe from possible vulnerabilities.

 

Next, stop access to nasty websites (dont worry you can keep your special video sites"

http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.zip

(If your running on vista, you need to right click on the .bat file, and run it as admin.)

 

 

If your running IE, drop it. It is one of the WORST browsers available.

Firefox:http://www.mozilla.com/products/download.html?product=firefox-3.0.10&os=win&lang=en-US

 

Addons:

Noscript: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/latest/722/addon-722-latest.xpi

 

WOT:http://www.mywot.com/en/download/&url=ff

 

Adblock plus:https://addons.mozilla.org/downloads/latest/1865/adblock_plus-1.0.2.xpi

 

 

 

I'm sure you guys all have scanners, where it be MBAM or SAS. But keep these on hand, since the new malware coming out prevent you from running, updating, or even installing MBAM.

Virtualize your web browser: (Used just for browsing)

Change the settings to:

Auto delete contents

Dont migrate files larger then 1MB

Under Restrictions drop all rights

 

 

Threatfire:(Behavior blocker)

http://www.threatfire.com/download/

This is the hard part...you have to go to advance and make custom rules. In the process list, trust all security apps you use. ALL. As for the descriptions, ill leave those up to you to word it how you wish. What it effects are in ( )

Enable all the rules already there, and add the following:(copied, and pasted from Threatfire)

 

(Temp Files)

When any process

tries to write or create or execute|TriggerAccessFlags a file

in C:\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\|TriggerFolders

except when the source process is in the trusted process list

 

(System32)

When any process

tries to write or delete or create or execute|TriggerAccessFlags a file

in C:\WINDOWS\system32|TriggerFolders

except when the source process is in the trusted process list

 

 

(Start ups)

When any process

tries to write to the registry

to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce|TriggerKeys

to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce|TriggerValues

except when the source process is in the trusted process list

 

 

Keyboard encryption:

What this does, is encrypt EVERYTHING you type, preventing keyloggers from getting any information from you.

 

 

 

 

More coming soon.

Most of those are either addons, or on demand scanners. The main component of this security setup is ThreatFire, which is the behavior blocker, and its custom rules set to add even more protection.

 

 

Though this security Setup is somewhat outdated.

Can some one help clarify this for me? The way I see this is I'm all clear except for IE8 and it's showing insecure with no way to fix it. Thank you. {garybear}

 

Hi garybear :smile:

 

I got this as well and the Secunia website has this to say:

 

Description:

Stefan Esser has discovered a vulnerability in Internet Explorer, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

 

The vulnerability exists because pages that don't specify a charset inherit the charset of the parent page. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of certain sites that are included e.g. via iframes in a malicious page that uses UTF-7 as charset.

 

Successful exploitation requires that the user is tricked into visiting a malicious web site.

 

The vulnerability is confirmed in Internet Explorer 7 and 8 on a fully patched Windows XP. Other versions may also be affected.

"Successful exploitation requires that the user is tricked into visiting a malicious web site."

Careful what you click :!:

 

All the best, woz of oz

Hi garybear,

 

Please have a look at to THIS in Secunia forum. Exactly your case.

 

BTW, do you use Adobe Reader? And is it version 9.1.3?

If YES, to both, then OK, if NO, to both then OK again.

If YES to first question, and NO to the second question, then please update Adobe Reader to the latest version 9.1.3.

 

Cheers.

Hi Gary,

 

It is not Adobe Reader, it is Macromedia flash bought by Adobe sometime ago.

 

I would uninstall Adobe Download manager, if you are not using Adobe Reader. (Seen from your attachment, no Adobe Reader is installed in your PC, if not installed before and uninstalled afterwards.)

 

How do you open PDF documents? Do you have some other program like Foxit Reader, or you did not encounter to any PDF file yet?

 

Cheers.

I'm very sorry my friend, but I do not have a clue what you are telling me.(if not installed before and uninstalled afterwards) makes no sense to me. I do not have Foxit. and I do not know what(you did not encounter to any PDF file yet) means. Please for give my ignorance enoskype. I deeply respect every thing you tell me and try very hard to do every thing you suggest . You have lost me my friend on this one.{Gary}

with adobe i would delete all of them with ccleaner and reinstall fresh.

 

or in case of flash player another option is to goto abode web site and run their own unistaller before reinstall.

 

abode are well known to leave keys of prev versions in the files when you update them to new versions this is what throws up the errors by secunia. to fix do as i mentioned a choice of two ways to delete flashplayer. [using add/remove via the control panel in windows is not good enough]
