Helios is an advanced malware detection system has been designed
to detect, remove and innoculate against modern rootkits. What
makes it different from conventional antivirus / antispyware products
is that it does not rely on a database of known signatures. We
believe that malware, by definition, has to perform malicious
actions on your system. By observing which software performs malicious
behaviour, you can better detect malware.
The key features of Helios are:
1. Can operate in background scan mode, alerting the user to
anomalies in real-time.
2. Goes beyond detection to remove and de-fang rootkits.
3. Inoculation features prevent the execution of rootkits and
allow granular access control over files / folders / and drivers.
4. Application integrity verification can check and restore applications
that have been subverted.

" We're pleased to announce a new version of
Helios called Helios Lite. After listening to feedback from the
community and upgrading a lot of our detection technology, we are
releasing Helios Lite.
Helios Lite is a rootkit detection product based on some of the
components of the Helios rootkit detection technologies. It is an
implementation of the idea of Cross View Detection for the detection
of persistent and non-persistent rootkits. It successfully detects
a large number of user mode and kernel mode rootkits including Hacker
Defender, Vanquish, Fu, FuTo, phide_ex and Unreal.A. It searches
for hidden processes, hidden files as well as hidden registry keys.
Helios Lite was designed to be quick and portable, it does not
require installation and can be run off a USB drive. The only prerequisites
are that it is run as a system administrator. This release of Helios
does not require the .Net Framework and will work on any system
with Windows XP SP2 system. For using all the features, an NTFS
formatted system disk is recommended. The addition of the word 'Lite'
to the name does not represent a lesser set of features, this version
of Helios is even more powerful than the earlier release. We've
called it 'Lite' simply because it has very minimal system requirements
and does not need installation."
