Hacker Deterrent 2.1 Beta is available now for Windows 7 & 8.  The Windows 10 beta version will be available January 15.  This release offers seven new powerful features:

  • Redundant Servers: In case of a server failure, Hacker Deterrent 2.1 seamlessly cuts over to a redundant server for uninterrupted use.  When a redundant server is being used, the blinking Health Monitor dot turns green.  The dot will return to its normal blue color once the primary server is back online.
  • Denial-of-Service Mode: If hackers launch a Denial-of-Service attack against our entire data center, Hacker Deterrent 2.1 automatically enters into Denial-of-Service Mode.  This mode will allow you to browse the internet while maintaining all your previously blocked settings.  When the Denial-of-Service attack is over, any new sites you are visiting will instantly be color-coded and managed.  In Denial-of-Service Mode, the blinking Health Monitor dot turns yellow.  The dot will return to its normal blue color when the Denial-of-Service attack is over.
  • Application Descriptions: You can now view a detailed description of any application by right-clicking on the application name and selecting “Show Details.”  The following information will be displayed:
    • Description of the app
    • Its location on the disk
    • Its process number
  • Go To File Location: When viewing details of an app, you can now click the [Go To File Location] button.  This will allow you to delete or rename the file, which is helpful in removing any identified malware.
  • Terminate Process: When viewing details of an app, you can now click the [Terminate Process] button to instantly shut the app down.  If you see a malicious app trying to access the internet, you can now instantly terminate it.
  • Menu-Based Entity & Domain Details: To view details of any entity or domain, right-click on the entity or domain and select “Show Details.”  The following information will be displayed:
    • Organization
    • Contact
    • Street Address
    • City, State/Province
    • Country
    • Telephone
    • E-mail
  • Menu-Based Drill Down: Right click on any line and follow the menu prompts to drill all the way down to domains, sites, IP addresses, and geolocation.
