Note: the following Untrusted Applications will update in their default state:
Mozilla Firefox, SeaMonkey, Thunderbird, Opera(old), Internet Explorer,
uTorrent and ICQ. No need to run as trusted (to update extensions, run as
trusted, close and start normally).
If a new software is from a source you do not trust absolutely - first use an anti-virus scanner to check it for
malicious content or send it to any anti-virus lab for
more detailed inspection. Online scanners Jotti Malware Scan
and Virus Total
If a new software installation is from an Untrusted source - install it as Untrusted.
Because of the sandbox restrictions in DefenseWall, most software (games,
applications, ...) should run okay, some may not.
If you have installed an application as Untrusted by
mistake and run it one more
time as trusted, it may be turned back to Untrusted because temporary folders and
files are already marked as untrusted. In most cases, you need to uninstall it and
cleanup leftover files; then re-install 'as Trusted'.
download software and files from trusted sources! (80% of files on P2P
and file sharing sites are infected.)
software from the author's website whenever possible. (Using a site
that hosts downloads? Most of those sites list the vendor/author - use a good
search engine to find it.)
all files received via P2P, IM/Chat, E-mail, etc. (threat gateways) before
opening or running.
not open email or attachments from unknown or unsolicited sources! Never!
