By now you’re probably familiar with all the security holes that keep popping up in Flash, Java and other popular software, providing easy ways for hackers to install malicious software onto your computer.
In fact, Java alone is so insecure that I completely uninstalled it from my PCs a long time ago, and I recommend that you do the same.
Security holes in otherwise legitimate software make it easy for hackers to compromise your system, and up until now there was little you could do about it except wait for the software providers to release “patches” for the holes.
But now the makers of Malwarebytes has released Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, a free and extremely effective security program that runs in the background on your PC and monitors your other software for activity that’s consistent with a hacking attack. If it finds any, it shuts it down immediately and blocks the malware from being downloaded onto your hard drive.
Just how effective is Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit at protecting a computer from drive-by downloads? Well, in over a year of testing by both the company itself and third-party beta testers, not a single exploit that was discovered during that time period made its way onto a PC protected by the software!
Of course that doesn’t mean that your PC will be completely immune to malware attacks after you install Anti-Exploit. It won’t be, and it likely never will be. After all, we’re talking Windows machines here. But in my opinion installing it is a no-brainer, especially since it’s a free download.
