Mike’s New AntiVirus Recommendation – HitmanPro.Alert 3

Want to be as safe as you can be online? Mike recommends all his customers immediately upgrade to HitmanPro.Alert 3 with CryptoGuard to protect your computer, data, identity and money.

Since September 2013, Mike has been installing HitmanPro.Alert 2 on every computer that he installs antivirus on. Mike wants you to be aware of the new improved HitmanPro.Alert 3, that he can install for you.

Notice: Version 2 was free, but the new improved HitmanPro.Alert 3 has an annual subscription and it is worth it, ask Mike for details. HitmanPro.Alert 2 MUST be uninstalled and the computer rebooted before installing HitmanPro.Alert 3.

Viruses are getting more dangerous every day. New viruses like banking trojans, crypto ransomware, and password stealers. Software is constantly being identified as having vulnerabilities.

CryptoGuard blocks the encryption of files caused by crypto ransomware viruses. Mike’s Computer Repair is an officially registered reseller for HitmanPro.Alert. You can purchase the key from Mike.

Why HitmanPro.Alert 3?

The unique technologies in HitmanPro.Alert 3 are designed to stop threats before they emerge and aims to protect your vulnerable software, data and identity against current and future attacks, without requiring prior knowledge of the attack or malicious program.

Seals the gaps
Antivirus programs are all designed to help catch the daily hundreds of thousands new malicious programs, the payload. Unlike this, HitmanPro.Alert can actually block the exploit (thus blocking its payload), without requiring prior knowledge of the abused weakness or the malicious program. It also makes malware belief it is running in an unwanted research environment, causing most sandbox-aware malware to terminate itself.


Reveals the spies
HitmanPro.Alert instantly detects over 99% of all known and new banking trojans and other spies. It automatically informs users when critical system functions are diverted to untrusted programs and effectively reveals the presence of any so-called Man-in-the-Browser malware. It also prevents attackers from abusing you own webcam. And by encrypting your keystrokes, HitmanPro.Alert protects your credentials while you work, play or shop online.


Protects your data
Since it is much harder for a malware-author to change the behavior of his malware (e.g. take files hostage), HitmanPro.Alert looks out for suspicious activity instead of working with virus signatures. If e.g. mass encryption is detected, HitmanPro.Alert’s CryptoGuard technology will automatically neutralize the perpetrating program and restore the encrypted documents, without the need for any user intervention


Hardware-assisted Control-Flow Integrity
HitmanPro.Alert 3 is the first and only commercially available exploit mitigation software capable of leveraging MSR hardware registers in your existing Intel® microprocessor to assist Alert’s Control-Flow Integrity (CFI) analysis. And where other security software struggle with application compatibility, HitmanPro.Alert is compatible with other security solutions, including exploit mitigation software.


Code mitigations
HitmanPro.Alert 3 keeps an eye on program execution flow, prevents heap sprays and stops attacks that e.g. redirect exception handling to run unwanted malicious code. Without affecting regular program use, it also blocks sophisticated Return-Oriented Programming (ROP) attacks and exploits that abuse logic-flaws in widely-used or company specific software.

Memory mitigations
HitmanPro.Alert 3 is capable of per-application enforcement of Data Execution Prevention (DEP), Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) and Bottom-up ASLR memory protections; on current and legacy software without requiring the source code of the protected application, even on outdated Windows XP that no longer receives security updates from Microsoft.
