Spyware, adware, and malware sneak onto your Windows computer and pump some faraway server full of information about what you are doing online. These programs bury themselves in your registries, and now Zone Labs thinks it’s cracked the problem. The next release of the software is supposed to include kernel level firewalling which monitors any weird program, file and OS behavior and disable those programs that are the cause. The software will monitors registry keys and start up processes and supposedly will protect against malware embedded in downloads as well.
With parent Check Point rocking and rolling in the midst of so many internet security issues, it would not surprise me if they are right on target with this next ZoneAlarm release.
