Update: January 31, 2010 @ 10:30 EST – Zemana’s license server may have intermittent problems in issuing a license.Cyber crimininals have launched a denial of service attack against Zemana, which included 100,00o requests per second from a network of bots. Zemana has hardened its defenses as a result, so we don’t expect this issue to continue. We apologize for the inconvenience. All license requests will be honored by Zemana.

Despite the best efforts by anti-malware developers to meet new threats head-on, cybercriminals will respond, as they always have, by generating even more diverse threats to evade detection and elimination. So, button up your overcoat and get your rain gear ready; 2010 is going to be the stormiest malware year to date!
After reading the following review of Zemana AntiLogger, I’m sure you’ll agree, this is an application that will increase your sense of safety as you surf the Internet.
Zemana AntiLogger – An Ounce of Prevention
We’ve previously discussed Keylogger malware here, and how to employ an ounce of prevention by using highly regarded SnoopFree Privacy Shield, a free application, which unfortunately, is compatible with Windows XP only.
Because Keyloggers, are a particularly sinister type of malware, that, amongst other tasks, monitors every keystroke a user types on a computer’s keyboard, are often executed as part of a rootkit, or a remote administration (RAT) Trojan horse, they can be extremely difficult to detect, and remove.
While it’s true, that many good quality malware and spyware detection tools should capture Keyloggers, and a properly configured Firewall should prevent all authorized connections, the reality is – this is definitely NOT always the case. Keyloggers in fact, can disable Firewalls, and anti-malware tools.
Since my personal home machines now run on Windows 7, I can no longer protect against Keyloggers using SnoopFree Privacy Shield, so I had to find an alternative. Unfortunately, I could not find a freeware substitute application. However, I did find a competitively priced application, Zemana AntiLogger, following a reader’s recommendation, which I’ve been testing for just under 30 days.
I was immediately impressed by this application, particularly the system defense function. The application intercepted proposed changes to system files NOT picked up by other security applications on my system.
Since I use a Webcam extensively for communicating, I was more than happy to see the active Webcam protection offered by Zemana AntiLogger, which was immediately apparent.
This is an example of a Zemana warning, triggered by my launching an anonymous proxy application which by design, injects code into my primary Browser. By checking an appropriate check box I established a rule, permitting this action in future.
This is an example of a Zemana warning, triggered by my updating both Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes definition databases which, in each case, will make changes to system files. Simply checking a check box establishes a rule, which will permit this action in future.
This is an example of a Zemana warning, triggered by a screen capture utility I was in the process of using. If this had been an illegal activity. I would of course, have received the same warning. Again, simply checking a check box establishes a rule, which will permit this action, by this utility, in future.
Part of the testing procedure in testing the ability of Zemana AntiLogger to block Keyloggers, included the use of Anti-Keylogger Leak Tester, which tests for 7 different keylogging attacks. All attacks were easily defeated by Zemana AntiLogger.
