HitmanPro.Alert, which includes the discovery and removal abilities of HitmanPro, turns your computer into a highly undesirable victim, automatically stopping and revealing attacks in real-time, without using virus signatures.
Features and Highlights
Advanced, Real-time Protection
New and increasingly sophisticated threats are being created every day. The tool stops these brand-new, never-before-seen threats by proactively seeking out and analyzing suspicious behaviors and activities. It goes beyond old-school antivirus to deliver advanced, real-time protection against the latest hacking, ransomware, program exploits, webcam spying, and online banking risks.
Ransomware encrypts your files, making them unusable until a ransom is paid to the hackers who spread it. And there is no guarantee that they’ll be decrypted once the ransom is paid. Ransomware is one of the fastest-growing malware infections in the world and has been making headlines through massive, worldwide outbreaks. It has become so lucrative, that business organizations have sprung up in the criminal world selling ransomware as a product or service to newbie hackers.
The program watches for ransomware-style behavior, not just known ransomware, allowing it to catch brand new variants that other security software can’t recognize. If a file gets encrypted, this tool makes a backup file. If other files continue to be encrypted, The app recognizes this behavior as potential ransomware and stops the process. It then rolls back the encryption by replacing the encrypted files with the saved backups and then removes the ransomware itself. The software also blocks unwanted encryption of the boot drive, another tactic used by hackers to get money. All of this is done without any needed user interaction.
Preventing Program Exploits
There are many helpful programs for any number of uses found on Windows PCs. Unfortunately, the programs could have vulnerabilities that provide backdoors for hackers to gain access to your system. The software adds an additional layer of security around vulnerable programs, watching for behavior that is malicious in nature. Infections are found and promptly removed. Hitman Pro then replaces infected Windows resources with safe, original versions. This prevents these programs from being exploited and used against the user.
Keeping Your Privacy
Just like certain programs, webcams, keyboards, and web browsers are also susceptible to hacking. Simple infection techniques could give hackers access to the passwords and credit card numbers you type, the web pages you visit, and anything that’s happening in front of your webcam.
The tool monitors unauthorized access to your webcam, keeping your private life private. It beefs up browser security and warns you if the web browser has been compromised in any way. It also encrypts your keystrokes, rendering keyloggers useless and keeping what you type-safe. These advanced privacy features led MRG Effitas to award the tool their Secure Online Banking certification.
HitmanPro’s Advanced Malware Removal
All the features found in the app are also included in HitmanPro Alert for Windows, including a powerful, professional-grade virus cleaner. While most traditional virus cleaners simply remove offending malware files, deep scan and clean goes the extra mile by eradicating all traces and remnants of the malware that previous security software may have left on your computer. It’ll be like your computer was never infected in the first place.
Note: 30 days trial version.
