NEW "eEye" security program ????

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I just found out about this new all in one security suite. Its called eEye.
It is supposd to be a decent all in one program and is available for free download right now. Has anyone heard of this one or used it yet? I am using Norton AV now and I really don't like it. eEye looks like a good thing it even has zero day attack features. Any thoughts ..............?

anything is better than Norton... I would try combining security programs to get a good package, for example I have:
Zone Alarm (firewall)
AVG (antivirus)
Spybot (spyware)
Ad-Aware (adware)
That should cover everything.

Yea... thats what I think too. I am using Norton personal AVirus, AdAware,Spysweeper and Zone Alarm Firewall right now. I have never really heard good things about AVG . Its seems to be only sub par on the detection etc.. Norton is so power hungry . I want something more subtle.............

Dont Use That Program

On a recent Episode of Security Now

They had the CEO of Eeye to talk about there security suite and such. Once everyone listened to it including me we thought it was great peace of software. But instantly people started leek testing it and all.

What was found is that, Eeye is truly a great program but what it's used for is for actually un found malware. In other words for example that animated cursor vulnurability Eeye where the first people to discover it.

But when just practically surfing the web it is a highly unsafe progam to use

think of it as a Huristics program. For that Comodo is recommended, I use it and so many others do.

AVG is a fine app... it went thru a bad patch several yrs ago but has matured into a solid AV app.

As for software-firewalls... tbh, anyone on a broadband connection still using s/w firewalls and NOT behind a hardware firewall needs their head examined (given the EXTREMELY cheap price these days of Nat firewall/routers)

NOD32 isn't free, but uses very little memory and works well.

And almost every AV is better than Norton :S. Try AntiVir, Avast, or AVG for a free AV. (They all start with A! )

god I hate zonealarm, had it for a bit before my new router got delivered.

Best way to check and see if you are behind something is to check your IP, if it is an internal one 192.xxx.x.x then you dont need zonealarm

if it is an external one, then get a cheap router

BTW...AVG been using for years and love it
