  1. OSAM: Autorun Manager v5.0 - against rookits that hide their files! 11-Sep-2009 As mentioned before, a few weeks ago we recommenced the works on our first public product, namely OSAM: Online Solutions Autorun Manager. Releasing this, fifth, version of the product has turned hard for our company. For a number of reasons of different nature the release data had to be moved several times. However, we managed to brace up and - thanks to join efforts - finally released the new version of the product. Now, greet OSAM: Online Solutions Autorun Manager v5.0! The 5th version provides a unique possibility to detect and remove rootkits that hide their files on the hard disk. Hiding registry keys and files rootkit techniques are spreading wider and wider, so our company had nothing to do but invent and implement a solution for detecting and removing such malware. And we did it! OSAM applies algorithms that parse and the structure of file systems on hard disks without involving any mechanisms of the operating system and thus detects and removes almost all the known viruses and other types of malware. Presently OSAM detects hidden files, in addition to detecting hidden registry entries, which allows for using it in detecting and removing newest and up-to-date viruses. One-click removal of the Conficker (Downadup) worm using OSAM For a long time, our malware analysts have requested on improvements in processing of Windows .job files. Good news - version v5.0 features a fundamentally modified and improved the information retrieval method. This modification has significantly simplified detection and removal of viruses, improved and accelerated the procedure of adding information to malware databases. Due to high popularity of our product among Windows Vista and Windows 7 users, a set of considerable improvements have been introduced into support of these operating systems. Besides, we have reworked a large number of scanning techniques and data processing algorithms, fixed the known bugs, and implemented several helpful functions (please, refer to the complete list of updates). We are sure that you will like the new version of OSAM: Online Solutions Autorun Manager as it will help you always keep your computer safe and sound! We are glad to once again express our thanks to Julia (JM) for her patience, devotion to the company, and confidence of success! Hold on! We are also glad to inform all users of OSSS: Security Suite, that besides the OSAM version 5 release, during the recent four weeks we have worked hard on the client-server interaction. This work has been very fruitful and resulted in serious improvements in the functionality, which we hope to present in a new version of the product, due in the near future. If you use various software and would like to participate in beta-testing of our new secutiry techniques, apply for participation at the following address: beta@online-solutions.ru.

  3. Change list for OSSS: Security Suite v1.1 Beta (15 Aug 2009 06:30) Support of 32-bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 2008 operating systems has been included. "Security Master" for customizing the system automatically during installation has been added. Protection against keyboard and mouse control interception has been significantly improved. Interface of requests has been improved. Formatting and contents of displayed text has been changed. Scrolling in request dialog boxes has been implemented. In the OSPD (Proactive Defense) module the "Allow Most" policy has been restored. The possibility to uninstall the program without manual turning off the self security module has been implemented.

  4. OSSS: Security Suite. Fourth public beta (15-Aug-2009 06:30) For the recent six weeks we have implemented a number of new functions. The first one to mention is automatic customization of rules via Security Master already at the program installation stage. Starting with version v1.1, search for software in use is performed during the OSSS installation, whereupon the accumulated data are analyzed on our server and the set of rules for the detected applications is generated automatically. The safety level of an application is analyzed using the database of another our product Online Solutions Autorun Manager (OSAM), which contains information about tens thousands of safe and malicious applications. Thanks to excellent contribution of Julia (JM), the head of the Malware Analysis Department, our users no longer need to respond annoying requests during the first start of their computers - our server will do it for them! Another new important feature is protection against keyloggers and mouse grabbers, which is an improved version of the previously implemented functionality. Currently OSSS detects any attempts to intercept control over keyboard or mouse thus protecting our users against banking trojans and rootkits, while stealing money through internet banking is one of the most common functions of malicious software. During the several recent days we have completed testing the OSSS product on the Microsoft Windows Vista x86 (32-bit version) platform. We are glad to inform, that our product is now available for users of this operating system as well. It is worth mentioning that fourth Beta is the first Windows Vista-compatible public version of our product, which causes a set of known issues (this list is not updated yet; it will be updated soon). In the closest future, we are going to put effort into resolving them and completing the functionality for work under Windows Vista. In OSSS v1.0 the self protection feature was included, so uninstalling the product required disabling the self protection module. The current version provides the possibility to turn self protection off during uninstallation. This will have no impact on the system safety level because this functionality will be unavailable for malicious software. We keep working on the program interface and usability improvement. In the current version, formatting and data selection have been improved in activity dialog boxes. On no longer has to carefully read the entire text to answer a request, but only needs to take a glance at the window and make the right decision. Moreover, text scrolling is now available in the "Suggestion" and "Details" blocks. Unfortunately, we have not had time to test the Russian localization, but we hope to publish the multi-language version in 2 or 3 weeks. If you are eager to be the first to see our program in Russian, you are welcome to contribute in testing it. Feel free to apply for the Russian version by the following e-mail address: rus@online-solutions.ru. We are glad to inform all the numerous users of our Online Solutions Autorun Manager (OSAM) program that we have resumed this project after almost a year since the last release. For the recent six weeks we have considerably improved the code, sped up scanning, implemented the algorithms for analyzing FAT32 and NTFS partitions without using operating system mechanisms. In a few weeks we are going to release a new version of the product, which allows for detecting and removing practically all known malicious software that is beyond the power of most antiviral programs. Here is another good novelty for our users. We are keeping on development of the OSSS server side, which will allow for implementing a number of new promising approaches to computer and user security. Within the closest months we are going to work hard in this direction and we need your help in checking the implementation of our concepts. If you are interested in becoming our beta-tester, contribute to the development of a complicated and high-quality software product, cooperate with inspired people, feel free to apply on participation in beta-testing by the following e-mail address: beta@online-solutions.ru.

Original: http://www.online-solutions.ru/en/news/company/osss-security-suite-fourth-public-beta.html _________ Remember that in order to update the OSSS v1.0 Beta (with self-protection) to the new version, it is required to disable a self-protection module before uninstalling v1.0 Beta, otherwise the uninstallation process will be simply impossible. Step-by-step manual is here.
  5. Hello Tarq57! At this moment - no. Also we do nothing with tails of files at the end of file (at "last" disk sector). If once some of the files was changed to smaller size. This is not a wiping software, so it's OK and absolutely normal (but I must say again - only at this moment ).
  6. Hello! SpyLOG - it's just a Russian web-statistics engine (counter) used by many of web-designers, like Google's "Google Analytics". You can read on english about it here. Nothing of insecure, illegal, spy- or ad-ware. It's not because of MSI installer's engine. It's because the size of Microsoft's Redistributable Package that is included to full installation package (and excluded from self-extract archives for professionals). If you carefully read a notice on download page, you'll see information and links for additional archive with system libraries or link to site of Microsoft for downloading redistributable package. If you downloading full installation package (MSI), you do not need any additional software and links. Since they're not for Ubuntu... Seems like this :)
