Mozilla Firefox 1.0.1 has just been released. A minor update, this version fixes a few security holes and some other bugs. If you're using Firefox 1.0, you want this release. The Firefox Release Notes have also been updated and The Burning Edge has an unofficial Firefox 1.0.1 changelog. Download links can be found on the official Firefox product page.

Xblock Systems is pleased to announce a new freeware product to help technical users regain control of their machines and to assist spyware researchers doing log analysis.

This tool is not meant to replace your standard anti-spyware scanner, but serve as diagnostic tool to help identify questionable processes on a machine.

What and why?

As the spyware versus anti-spyware battle rages on, we were looking for good tools that allow a user to examine the contents of his or her machine and to take corrective actions against questionable programs. An excellent candidate for this is "HijackThis" by Merijn, which is already in use by many"anti spyware experts". We are a big fan of Merjin's work and we felt that HJT could be improved upon in some ways and thus the idea for X-RayPc Spyware Process Analyzer was born.

We took the best aspects of the HJT concept and linked it up to the SpywareGuide database. The result is something like a systems management tool with a built-in expert system. Happy

If you can't wait to try it out, jump straight to the download page. If not, read on. Please note that X-RayPC is not intended to replace your anti-spyware solution but to act as a useful research tool. Currently X-RayPC is free for non-commercial use.

[*]List autostarting programs

[*]One-Click "Triage" : shows which items are "good", "bad" or "unknown"
[*]Integrated file-uploader
[*]Integrated deactivation and removal of an item or file
[*]Can kill running processes (within the limits of the OS security model)
[*]Can delete in-use files (after reboot)
[*]Can export the log file in text form, Excel format and in HJT-compatible format
[*]Detects hundreds of suspicious programs

[*]Fully compiled Win32 executable
[*]Single file download: No external runtimes, DLL's, libraries,...
[*]No install needed. No installer to mess with. Grab the executable and run it. Delete it when done.
[*]Fast! Complete analysis of the system is done in a few seconds.



X-RayPc Spyware Analyzer can be used as an interactive tool to to examine a users Windows environment and investigate and correct system malfunctions. Logs can be saved and/or uploaded to message boards.


It can also be used as an remote interactive support tool. Let have a look at the schema.
