"A Surprising Disappointment"

January 17, 2007  |  By D_Menace

 |  Version: AntiHook Windows XP/2003 Server 3.0 build 23

Pros

Read their website at infoprocess.com.au;

The program is supposed to offer more protection (but it doesn't really) and due to completely new code be more light and efficient (but it still slows you're system down dramatically)

Cons

High Memory Usage - 40 MB (Shared by 2 processes)

Misleading Naming - "Registry Modification" protection, does NOT block a process from modifying the registry, only blocks a process from modifying certain areas such as the startup keys.

Insufficient Protection - AntiHook is considered as an advanced product for expert computer users to protect against 0day threats. Yet it doesn't have enough features to offer such complex protection, completely missing Buffer Overflow protection (though some can argue that process start protection protects against this*), and its keylogger / rootkit protection is very 1-dimensional, missing new keylogger / rootkit methods (see Firewallleaktester.com keylogger and DFK Threat Simulator rootkit component.)

Insufficient information in alerts, which although technical, doesn't provide enough details to make an informed decision, meaning that if a breach occurs, a user can easily misunderstand its meaning.

Infoprocess - there is still quite a long way... but you can potentially turn this into a very competitive product!

"Stops zero day attacks well"

January 01, 2007  |  By oBzukNwa

 |  Version: AntiHook Windows XP/2003 Server 3.0 build 23

Pros

This caught and blocked all keylogger attack tests, rootkit attacks, and buffer-run attacks I tested.

Fastest response of the HIPS preventers I tested and way cheaper than some.

Cons

Rules management (sorting, editing, consolidation) is very cumbersome.

Also, didn't trust the "fingerprint mode" which seems to allow carte blanche while Antihook decides what's normal.

Minor annoyance: Requires dot-net 2 (which increases system overhead and vulnerabilities).
