Must Have Security Solutions (for free)

The Question ! New PC How to Secure ? Here’s the Answer some must have security solutions that don't have any performance drag and memory use even when all of them are running at the same time oh and did i mention they are all free. Remember Security for PC is to give you good computing experience, being paranoid and installing many security solutions just causes system drag doesn't help!

Avira Antivir
Top Rated AntiVirus, over 30 million users, Free for Personal Use.

Threat Fire
Fills in the gap where conventional AntiVirus fails! Ideal protection against 0-day attacks

Windows Defender
Kool Antispyware from Microsoft Free (Preinstalled in Vista)

SpyBot S&D Resident or WinPatrol (AntiSpyware)
Both do little or more the same thing has good features a must have!

Sunbelt Personal Firewall (Previously known as Kerio Personal Firewall)
Just like Windows Firewall this too doesn't slow your connection or speed but gives more features and options.

Comodo Memory Firewall
Buffer Overflow Protection for all the programs running on your Memory.

Sandboxie (Run in a Sandbox) or BufferZone Free Protection (Run in a  Virtualized Environment)
Run Isolated to System, Restrict Access to System Processes and Environment or Run in a virtual Environment good where Sandboxing fails if the application requires System Services or if you think the sandbox is slowing the operations.

Happy & Safe Computing..

Goolag Scanner Released!

Is this Good or Bad ??? much to debate and surprise, think this would be a good thing. Yep! good thing for everyone who own's a website that's pretty much everyone i know, lol.. "how can this be a good thing ?" use this tool to audit your websites and fix stuff before that information is used to bring the site down.

Released by CULT OF THE DEAD COW (cDc), one of the world's largest hacker group, Goolag Scanner is a web auditing tool. Goolag Scanner enables everyone to audit his or her own website via Google. The scanner technology is based on "Google hacking," a form of vulnerability research developed by Johnny I Hack Stuff. You will be surprised what all could be found about a website via google.

Google Hacking Database [ ]

Goolag Scanner [ ]

This database has long helped Admin's to better secure their websites. similar books from publishers resulted in best sellers, hoping this scanner would run on similar tracks helping even the end user with little knowledge to better manage their websites.

Review: First off an interesting installation voice supported, I scanned a few of  my Websites and found no problems, Yappy!! (All those installations and customizations and tweaks did help lol..) The scanner scans for over a 1400 issues including starting from vulnerabilities, installations to error message listings, be warned if you select to run all the tests at once the extensive use of google can result google detecting your activity as that of a bot, not much of a problem you just need to prove Google that you are not a bot enter a few letters from a pic to unblock and continue but at the end of all this you rest assured that your website is safe from almost 1400+ hacks methods and vulnerabilities. or you know what to fix atleast. funny i expected this tool to have an update feature still in beta may be in future versions.
