Title: TDS-3 Trojan Scanner NOT
Post by Richard on Nov 27th, 2005 at 11:15pm
I sprung for a full copy of TDS-3 some time ago, partly as a result of reading about it in Rad's site.

Not too long ago I attempted to search for updates and was directed to a page where they say modern firewalls and antivirus programs have made TDS-3 redundent.  

Thus they are not supporting it anylonger.

I guess there was some comfort in having *another* scanner to keep problems out of my computer.   Apparently Norton Antivirus, Sygate firewall and Spybot Search and Destroy are quit effective since I haven't found a threat on my system in a long time.  At least I don't know of any  :P

Soon someone will start selling rootkit scanners and the merrygoround ride will start again.

For information on both free and commercial rootkit detection options, see the thread "Rootkits:  Beyond Viruses & Spyware" on this forum at:

Sysinternals provides RootkitRevealer (free); the SpySweeper product (version 4.5) by Webroot now scans for rootkits.  I use both on a routine maintenance basis.
