I’ve heard of some “man in browser”, a trojan that hijacks your browser. It’s specific for an American bank. The trojan makes some extra money transactions but deletes them from the receipt, so the user won’t notice anything unless the missing money is discovered.
I suppose (at least I hope) Defense+ would notice such a trojan to be executed, so the user can prevent it from hijacking the browser?
Is this the man in the middle (or one of the men) that Melih refers to sometimes?
i’d agree that V3 would detect that, but any savy pc user would also have other software to help against such attacks, AV software as well as spyware software and something along the lines of Winpatrol that detect Browser Helper Objects (BHO’S)
Well. Id say its not possible. A man in the middle really dosnt watch your browser so much, just your traffic in general. Assuming the D+ was on BEFORE the trojan installed D+ will notify you. If the trojan was on before D+ then im not sure if D+ will notice it, its quite difficult to detect a ‘man in the middle attack’ with a software firewall. If you have a router then the middle man attack is surely foiled. (Unless the router is on DMZ)
