"Netcraft's toolbar community has reported an increase in the deployment of malicious scripts which direct webmail and online banking traffic through rogue proxy servers. These proxies allow attackers to steal usernames and passwords when forms are submitted, or use victims' cookies to hijack already-authenticated sessions.
The attacks rely on malicious proxy auto-config (PAC) scripts, which are remotely hosted and instruct a victim's web browser to proxy certain requests according to the specified configuration. Other requests are left untouched and end up being transmitted directly to the intended websites. The selective behaviour could perhaps be an attempt to limit the amount of traffic an attacker would need to process to extract sensitive information; alternatively, it could be an attempt to make detection more difficult the results from services such as whatismyip.com may not be indicative of whether or not traffic was being intercepted..."
i'm sure itz been said many times.............Trusteer Rapport
i use it as an additional layer of security.......rapport isn't like the rapport of yesterday.........the app gets along w/ NISS and MalwareBytesPro......just fine .............i understand the reference to 2k9........however..........the app has been re-developed constantly.
i'm certain there are malicious apps that can penetrate it..........but, every little bit helps
IE9/FF18.0.2...........both function w/o any noticeable performance issues
from the site:
"A recent test of best-of-breed anti-virus vendors and Web browser anti-phishing filters revealed that more than half of active malware and phishing threats on the Internet go undetected, with an average detection rate of 37 percent for malware and 42 percent for phishing." Cyveillance, February 2009
Recent malware is capable of stealing your login credentials to online banking, brokerage, shopping, ecommerce, email, and social networking websites. Even if the site is deemed "secure", fraudsters can use your online account to execute unauthorized transactions, place orders, send emails, and much more.
Trusteer Rapport works standalone or alongside any desktop security solution. It hides your login credentials and web communication from any type of malware and prevents unauthorized access to your accounts. You should use Rapport even if your computer runs the most updated antivirus solution.""--
