Effective virus protection without anti-virus software, identifies idcloak
Date:5/23/2013

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

Following the recent outbreak of fake Amazon emails delivering keylogger viruses to UK internet users, the security team at idcloak Technologies has identified a new form of antivirus protection that safeguards against this or any web-born malware. Gill-Chris Welles of the idcloak security team claims that this technology provides far better privacy and security than traditional antivirus software. “The Amazon spyware epidemic underlined that even the best AV software cannot be depended on: it takes a matter of days for a newly released virus to be discovered and for AV software to be updated to cope with it. In that time a lot of damage can be done. We need a technology that isn’t reactive but proactive.”

The proposed solution is for users to access the internet through a Live USB device: an operating system loaded onto a flashdrive that creates a virtual computing environment separate from the machine's hard drives. At the end of an internet session, a user unplugs the Live USB and the computer is returned to the exact state it was in before the session began. “When running a Live USB or SD, users nullify all chance of web-born malware infection. They could download the most insidious virus while browsing, but the moment they complete their internet session, that download is undone. It’s the closest to perfect AV protection there is.”

Welles nonetheless recognizes that this method, though free, does require a small investment in terms of time, but an investment he insists is well justified. “Perspectives need to shift: we still see the web as basically benign when it’s not. Most modern viruses are delivered as part of a criminal procedural attack for the purpose of fraud; the Mal/BredoZp-B virus found in the Amazon phish was no exception. And yet still the majority of users are happy to hand over their safety to a standard Microsoft internet security package.”

Live USB systems are available without cost when running Linux environments. Windows-to-Go is the only official Live USB product available from Microsoft and is included in Windows 8 Enterprise.
