  1. http://www.ehow.com/info_10047191_tdss-root-kit-do.html ..Stealth Techniques The reason for the huge spread of the TDSS root kit is the use of stealth to avoid detection by antivirus and other security software. As a root kit, TDSS hides components at the end of the hard drive, outside of the normal file system and hidden from applications. All files are encrypted on disk and decrypted on the fly, further helping to avoid detection. TDSS hijacks the Windows system drivers, overwriting parts with its own code so that the file size remains unchanged. The TDL-4 version of the rootkit can also infect the computer's master boot record, allowing it to load before the operating system. The root kit alters operating system files so that they do not report any TDSS files or activity, such as open network connections, hiding its existence from security software and the user.

  8. Statistics on the detection rate for each antiviral products (daily) This test is updated every day at two o'clock in the morning on a sample of about 1000 threats (see details for the exact figure). This test is based on the recognition of new threats with antivirus, why we call zero-day detection. https://threatcenter.crdf.fr/?Stats

  10. From what i have read K9 is a great app whether you have kids or not and i suggest everyone use it..lol. i do have a bit of redundancy with cloud url filters and suggest everyone do it..lol..The K9 and Panda cloud url filters don't seem to conflict and don't slow me down so why not layer them and have some fun. All Browsers have cloud url filters like chrome, dragon and IE9. i turn all these off and use my own like K9 and the panda cloud url filter, and the G Data Cloud Url Filter..
