Kaspersky Lab, a leading data security software developer releases a new version of Kaspersky® Anti-Hacker, a popular firewall for personal computers. Kaspersky® Anti-Hacker is a personal firewall, which provides full-scale protection for Windows computers against hacker attacks and unauthorized access. The solution monitors all network and application activities, as well as filtering all incoming and outgoing data packets, thus ensuring the confidentiality of all data on the PC. Kaspersky® Anti-Hacker 1.5 has a significantly improved interface, including XP style for computers running under Windows XP. The solution is generally more user-friendly: by default initial installation now allows network activity for the most common applications according to their types, allowing easier installation, but not compromising security. Users can now define a range of ports within the packet filtration rules, as well as data filtration in applications, which allows them to set one rule for a whole group of potentially dangerous IP addresses. Moreover, the solution now detects new network attacks, such as SmbDie and Helkern/Slammer and supports ADSL modems. The new version of Kaspersky® Anti-Hacker also includes an improved Stealth Mode feature. Computers operating in this mode block all Internet connections from the outside, thus becoming invisible to possible intruders, whilst continuing to roam the Internet at will. The high quality of the original version of the Kaspersky® Anti-Hacker personal firewall attracted a large circle of loyal followers, as well as garnering positive reviews from leading IT publications and testing centres worldwide. The solution does not require any special technical skills. "The newest version of Kaspersky Anti-Hacker has all of the advantages of the original version, whilst becoming easier to use due to a user-friendly interface, which allows users to easily control the main functions of the program. Version 1.5 provides users with additional features that reliably prevent all types of unsanctioned access to PCs", commented Denis Zenkin, Head of Corporate Communications at Kaspersky Lab. You can purchase Kaspersky Anti-Hacker in our on-line store or off-line from retail shops or our many partners worldwide. Licensed users of earlier versions can download and install Kaspersky Anti-Hacker version 1.5 from the Kaspersky Lab website in the Versions Updates section
