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:
- Street Address
- City, State/Province
- 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.
