Auto Sandbox protects from Malwares. Sometimes with Auto Sandbox popup, D+ Popups like COM & Protected Registry also appears. So suppose a malware file is auto sandboxed & the user gets the D+ popup COM or Protected Registry & the user allows the COM or Protected Registry D+ popup, Is the system still safe or can be infected now??
first of all it’s technically possible , but remember we shouldn’t lose the usability as well as the protection.
a screen logger and a legitimate application which captures screen shots behave in the same manner, they will both install a hook . , If they are both unknown and new , how come any software will decide whether the file is malicious or not , because if the software automatically blocked such behavior then , you will limit the usability of the software , in fact , you will make it useless . Therefore , an alert is a necessity in this case.
Got it. Thanxx for the info. So these things are little hurdles for average users. First when I use to get these COM & Hook popups I also use to allow them thinking some system things or if I block them the apps will not function properly. But now I am little familiar with these types of popups.
