" Zero-day exploits are traded online for financial reward.
International cyber-gangs cruise the web, constantly on the lookout
for software vulnerabilities to exploit. Actively seeking to make
money by defrauding computer users, these gangs lurk behind the
scenes on legitimate websites and use drive-by download techniques
to deliver their poisonous payloads - without your knowledge or
Software vulnerabilities are a fact of life. What's needed is a
way to prevent the bad guys from exploiting the risk window —
the time between discovery and patching of a vulnerability. This
risk window is getting wider as the criminals get smarter —
zero-day exploits can be in circulation within minutes of a vulnerability
being announced, while software companies take an average of two
months to distribute a fully-tested patch.
SocketShield stops exploits from getting on to computers during
the risk window. Easy to use, it protects vulnerable systems against
drive-by-downloads and other web-based zero-day exploits. Developed
by the people behind PestPatrol and ZoneAlarm, SocketShield delivers
the first truly effective protection against zero-day exploits."
