What is Exploit Prevention?

Kaspersky Security 4.0 Light Agent features the Exploit Prevention technology.

This technology offers protection against malware that exploits vulnerabilities in popular applications like Adobe Reader, Java, Internet Explorer for malicious purposes, such as to gain control over PCs or intercept personal data.

Protection against exploits includes the following methods:

  • Startup control for executable files of vulnerable software or web browsers.
  • Suspicious activity control for vulnerable software (escalation of privileges for a vulnerable application, writing other processes into the system memory).
  • Monitoring previous application startup instances (whether the application was run by a user or exploit).
  • Tracking the source of malicious code (infected file download initiated by web browser or remote web address).
  • Exploit prevention for vulnerable software.

The lists of vulnerable software are updated along with Kaspersky Endpoint Security 0 for Windows anti-virus databases.
