17 October, 2009

A new version of Online Solutions Security Suite (OSSS) - v1.2 - has been released.

Although version 1.2 does not contain many changes to the program core nor introduces numerous new functions and facilities this iteration nevertheless should be listed among most fruitful ones, as considerable effort has been invested in research activities.

During the recent nine weeks, more than 50% of total time has been spent on research, working out new requirements, and elaborating efficient anti-malware solutions.

The researches concerned DDE, OLE, LPC/ALPC/RPC cross-application interaction internal features as well as implementation of control over them. The results of these researchs will make the basis for further immediate significant improvements to the system security in a whole through further reduction of cross-process interaction.

A working prototype for notifying the user (with the possibility to create the relevant rules) on detected activities in the operating system before user is logged on has been implemented for Windows Vista and Windows 7. (For earlier platforms, this functionality has been implemented from the very first versions).

Besides that, OSSS v1.2 features visual notification. Currently, notifications only inform on the type of the license used. However, in the closest future the user will be notified on any significant events in the system, including denied attacks and blocked activities.
