behaviors characteristic of unauthorized system
use. Some of these include:
Attempts to access a protected registry area
Attempts to access a protected object
Attempts to Initiate a foreign process
Attempts to control Windows service
Attempts to create a DNS request
- Attempts to initiate outgoing TCP traffic

General Capabilities ―
Privatefirewall's layered approach to PC and endpoint defense addresses the
vulnerabilities and progressive techniques that
hackers exploit to gain unauthorized system
access and deliver malicious payloads.
Privatefirewall provides Application Security by providing
detailed alerts for incoming and outgoing
application-specific Internet traffic.

Windows OS Exploits ―
For example, the WMF exploit allows a hacker to
gain unauthorized access to your computer. In
this scenario, a compromised/attack computer
will send you a graphical file with the trusted
extension “.wmf”. Internet Explorer will
identify this legitimate file extension and will
instruct the operating system to process it.
Here’s where it all goes wrong. The file will in
turn invoke another process, (which typically
has an unusual name, i.e. a.exe).

Rootkit Defense ―
By simple definition, a rootkit is a collection
of software tools that an intruder can install
on a computer to execute whatever criminal
activity they have in mind. Rootkits are a
particularly tricky form of malware to detect
and defend against, as they are nearly invisible
to most types of systems monitoring software.
They allow an attacker to execute malicious
programs invisibly as the rootkit is able to
conceal files, running processes, and/or system
data. Rootkits are a growing problem ― According
to Microsoft, approximately 20 percent of the
malware deleted by its malicious software
removal tool are rootkits.
Privatefirewall can guard against rootkit-related attacks on
a number of levels.
Privatefirewall can detect when a
rootkit is being installed by identifying when a
registry key value is being modified.
also detect rootkit activity based on the
process, WinAPI call or executable that is
launched as an output of the rootkit’s payload.
Hacker Defense ―
Hackers are criminals that leverage system
vulnerabilities, social engineering, and other
techniques to break into computer systems for
the purpose of amusement, theft, vandalism, or
other crime. Privatefirewall prevents hacker attacks by
restricting access to unauthorized areas of your
computer and controlling the manner in which
applications, processes, and other system
features operate. In addition, Privatefirewall provides
additional layers of protection though system
and email anomaly
detection components that baseline normal
computer operation and detect unacceptable
deviations from typical use caused by intrusion
(hackers) and viruses, spyware and other forms
of malware. Hackers and their techniques
continually evolve and become more effective at
hiding. No security solution provides
100% protection from attacks, but
unique capabilities focused on deviations of
typical behavior and can therefore adapt and
evolve along with the threats themselves.
