Robot Genius Offers Free Anti-Malware Download

Robot Genius announced the availability of its new anti-malware download/plug-in, RGguard

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Robot Genius today announced the availability of its new anti-malware download/plug-in, RGguard. RGguard is a web browser plug-in that protects users from all types of malware including spyware, adware, rootkits and other malicious programs on the web. RGguard knows not just the domain, but also the full path URL that points to each instance of malware. The exactness of the alerts reduces false positives keeping restricted sites to a minimum, and also keeps 'noisy' security alerts to a minimum.

RGguard is a lightweight browser enhancement, compatible both with Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. It provides a clear warning whenever the current site contains malware, harmful software. Users may also access a list of every executable publicly available from the site, including details about what each actually does.

"Rather than identifying threats by fuzzy keywords and links, RGguard attacks the most common vector for malware propagation: executable programs, the same ".EXE" files users have known for two and a half decades," said Stephen Hsu, chairman and co-founder of Robot Genius. "Malware purveyors bundle harmful software with innocuous screensavers, toys, and games. These programs wait before causing trouble, making identifying the cause of the problem difficult. Using RGguard, surfers can see exactly what various scanners said about a program before downloading it, check the total installed size, or even whether it installed device drivers."
