Reading from Comodo: “HIPS can prevent spy ware and malware from ever being installed on a user’s PC. With HIPS activated, the user is warned EVERY time an unknown executable (.exe) attempts to run. If the application is not in Comodo’s safe list database, the user is alerted and asked to allow or block the application from running. This type of approach is effective with a highly extensive “white list” database.”
“BOClean is designed to complement traditional anti-virus solutions by checking executable files just before they run. BOClean consults its database of 278,000 malware signatures (which equates to nearly 2 million malware variants) and instantly kills the process if malware is detected.”
If HIPS consults a white list for every executable, doesn’t that render BOClean unnecessary?
Correct me if I am wrong, but from what I understand it does.
