Bsd Software For Antivirus - Bookshelf
Viruses on BSD systems are extremely rare (I have been using BSD daily for over ten years without running antivirus software and have never been infected by a virus). PC-BSD does support easy-toinstall antivirus software should you wish to ...
About this book
PC-BSD first began back in early 2005 with a simple beta release, which only provided a basic graphical installer to get a system loaded with FreeBSD 6 and KDE 3. This release was simply to test out the functionality of our installer and to begin laying the groundwork for a new method of package management for the open source desktop. However, the biggest drive for creating PC-BSD actually began in the years prior to the first release, as I had begun to dabble in open source desktops on our family computers. Our first experience with open source on the desktop was very mixed. Naturally, not all hardware would work properly, and after some initial struggles we ended up with some fairly stable systems. However, as we began using the systems on a daily basis, we quickly ran into other problems in the area of package management that could not be easily solved. By design, the various open source systems would simply treat every software package as a part of the core desktop. Thus, when we wished to perform updates to a particular application, the software manager would determine which other packages on the system needed to be updated to complete the task. While this would usually work without a hitch, too often for our comfort something would end up getting changed or broken in a (seemingly) unrelated piece of software just from doing something simple such as trying to update a small desktop application.
It is possible to leave the foo file; however, it might attract the attention of a vigilant user of an antivirus monitor. Now, it is time to ... Antivirus software will be unable to open the file and, consequently, will be unable to detect its modification .
About this book
This comprehensive manual covers three areas in which system administrators must be proficient to successfully recover data: the structure and operating principles of the most popular file systems, automatic data recovery techniques, and manual recovery techniques used in cases of total data destruction. Data recovery from hard drives and optical storage in Windows, BSD, and Linux file systems is described, as are automatic recovery utilities, manual and automatic recovery of deleted files on ext2/ext3 partitions and NTFS partitions, formatted NTFS partitions and deleted UFS/FFS files, RAID data recovery, media restoration with physical damage, and data loss prevention.
Because many types of antivirus software use the diStorm disassembler library, you need to get an old version of it and write your test cases locally to determine what is and what is not supported by diStorm. The old BSD version is simply ...
About this book
Hack your antivirus software to stamp out future vulnerabilities The Antivirus Hacker's Handbook guides you through the process of reverse engineering antivirus software. You explore how to detect and exploit vulnerabilities that can be leveraged to improve future software design, protect your network, and anticipate attacks that may sneak through your antivirus' line of defense. You'll begin building your knowledge by diving into the reverse engineering process, which details how to start from a finished antivirus software program and work your way back through its development using the functions and other key elements of the software. Next, you leverage your new knowledge about software development to evade, attack, and exploit antivirus software—all of which can help you strengthen your network and protect your data. While not all viruses are damaging, understanding how to better protect your computer against them can help you maintain the integrity of your network. Discover how to reverse engineer your antivirus software Explore methods of antivirus software evasion Consider different ways to attack and exploit antivirus software Understand the current state of the antivirus software market, and get recommendations for users and vendors who are leveraging this software The Antivirus Hacker's Handbook is the essential reference for software reverse engineers, penetration testers, security researchers, exploit writers, antivirus vendors, and software engineers who want to understand how to leverage current antivirus software to improve future applications.
