Host Security This is a review of the first on-access Anti-Exploit scanner. Anti-Exploit can help IT professionals to discover local attackers before they manage to execute malicious programs.

The Anti-Exploit exploit scanner utilizes kernel features to identify suspicious files when they are created or used. Anti-Exploit tags suspicious file by checking its md5 value (will be changed to signature-based) and comparing it against a database of well-known malicious tools such as exploits, rootkits, etc.

Anti-Exploit does not require any special modules for installation and on most systems it will be installed smoothly.

It must be edited prior executing the final installation step.
