fSekrit – Free textfile encryption

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

fSekrit is a really useful utility for those of us who value our privacy yet like to keep things as simple as possible. It enables you to read and edit encrypted text files that are totally self contained and requires no installation.

This makes it perfect for using on a thumbdrive to keep sensitive information private. For example you could have a text file with passwords or contact’s information, any kind of text information at all that you want to keep private. Should your thumbdrive be lost or stolen, your information will be safely password protected.

It uses strong encryption (256-bit AES/Rijndael in CBC mode) and the data is never transfered to the computers hard disk, making it very secure for those of us who are a tad paranoid especially when using public computers.

It’s free and you can get it from the fSekrit homepage here.

This is a neat little program I found for preventing your laptop from being stolen. It’s called LaptopAlarm and that’s exactly what it is. The best way of describing it is, it’s like a car alarm for your laptop!

If you need to walk away from your laptop in an area where it there is a potential chance of it being stolen or tampered with, this is the program for you, as long as loud noise isn’t a problem, as the alarm sound on this is very noticeable! (Be careful not to try this out with headphones!)

You get the options to set it to sound if the AC power is unplugged, the computer is shutdown or logged off, the USB Mouse is unplugged, and/or even if the mouse is moved. To shut off the alarm enter your password that you entered in settings.

LaptopAlarm doesn’t even need installing as it comes as a small exe file and it’s free!

When it comes to internet security, everybody is looking for the next great thing, but for some reason BitDefender hasn’t quite gotten its name out there.

It also has features to allow parents to block certain sites from their children. It includes a built-in firewall protection to keep hackers from detecting your computer, and to notify you when anyone else is logged onto your network.

The best part about BitDefender is that it is automatically designed to update itself every hour so there will never be a missed update, but should you ever miss an update, BitDefender’s Behavioral Heuristic Analyzer in Virtual Environments or “B-HAVE” technology will detect threats ahead of time and block them before you ever even know they are there.

And all of this is done automatically without you even telling it what to do. Many users agree that this is one of the best internet security programs on the market simply because it does not slow your computer down while it is scanning, and it will not flood you with dozens of alarm notices.

Multi Virus Cleaner 2008

Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

Multi Virus Cleaner is a very interesting piece of software for the simple reason that it is a tool that you use in a very specific and specialized situation, but when you do need to use that tool it delivers with a startling amount of effectiveness. The Multi Virus Cleaner, contrary to what the name might imply, is not a piece of software that you use as an anti-virus software. Anti-virus software comes with virus protection and regular scanning facilities, but at the same time is a full-featured way for you to prevent viruses from infecting your computer and ruining anything that you might have on your hard drive.

However, this is not what Multi Virus Cleaner does. Multi Virus Cleaner is to be used when your computer gets infected by a virus and you then need to remove the virus from your computer. An anti-virus software might not be able to help you with some viruses, but the Multi Virus Cleaner can dispose of over 3400 types of virus, worm, Trojan and dialer. It also happens to be updated on a regular basis, meaning that more functionality is added to it all the time. This is simply one of the best free virus fighting tools out there and should be in the arsenal of every computer user when they need to remove a virus that has infected their system.

WebmailSafety from Gwebs – Free webmail encryption

Monday, January 28th, 2008

WebmailSafety from Gwebs is free encryption for webmail. It ensures that emails sent across the internet are unreadable except by the sender and receiver. It does this by using RSA2048 & AES-256 Public Key encryption, ensuring very strong security.

Also, note that it currently only works with Internet Explorer, but they say FireFox support will soon be on the way.

It currently supports Gmail, Hotmail, MSN mail, Live mail, Yahoo mail and AOL mail.
