Spyware, Meet CounterSpy 1.5

Tampa Bay, Fla.-based Sunbelt Software released version 1.5 of its CounterSpy Enterprise anti-spyware detection and removal tool.

The upgrade adds so-called Active Protection Monitors aimed at helping protect the users’ privacy and identity, as well as preventing unauthorized programs from taking control of users’ workstations.

“The Monitors are designed as a series of security checkpoints [that] observe system and application changes, Internet activity and other potentially unwanted actions and responds to system changes such as home page hijacks, ActiveX installations and browser helper objects,” a Sunbelt statement says.

With version 1.5, CounterSpy Enterprise also now supports multiple consoles connecting to a single server as well as supporting Windows Terminal Services. All consoles are updated in real time when any changes are made to the CounterSpy server.
