Software Update: HitmanPro.Alert 3 build 167 RC

Surfright, the makers of HitmanPro, have released a new version of HitmanPro.Alert 3, which is currently under development. More and more often we see messages about security on the internet and its failure. Hackers try to get behind financial data with malware in order to loot accounts. An antivirus program and firewall are often not enough to stop an attack. HitmanPro.Alert can check the integrity of the web browser. It is not a browser plug-in, but runs as a system service and notifies you from the top right corner through a so-called Flyout window whether the browser’s integrity has been compromised by malware or not. Support is available for Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera and their derived web browsers.

Version 3 is no longer completely free. Browser security is still free, but protection against CryptoLocker ransomware, which encrypts all files on the computer, requires payment. With a single license of SurfRight, both HitmanPro.Alert and HitmanPro can be used. More information about this is on this page to find. The changelog for the last few versions can be found below.
