Haute Secure - Blocking drive-by malware downloads

Installation

Haute Secure, an anti-malware start-up founded by four former Microsoft employees, is using a new browser toolbar to block drive-by exploits from compromising Windows computers.

The idea is to fit behavior-based profiling algorithms into an Internet Explorer toolbar to identify and intercept malicious files in real-time.

The tool is currently available as a free beta download from the Haute Secure Web site.

In this gallery, we take a look at the installation and use of Haute Secure on IE 7 (Windows Vista).
