HitmanPro works alongside your real-time anti-virus software, offering a second opinion on-demand scanning capability. Excellent detection is realized by uniting various techniques, enabling both detection and removing advanced malware that antivirus solutions do not detect generally. Even remnants from previous infections are actively searched for and erased of your hard drive radically. Not only low-hanging fruit malware is being cleaned, but especially modern-day threats like information stealing Trojans, Ransomware, Persistent Threats, zero-day malware for which most anti-virus software has no immediate detection signatures will be cleaned thoroughly.
HitmanPro.Alert is a so-called Anti-Exploit solution. A software exploit is part of the malware collection. It takes advantage of ‘weak points’, or vulnerabilities, in commonly used software. Until today you might think you are the one in charge of your computer and the software installed and active. Well, you should be in control. However, the scary part about these so-called exploits is, that they penetrate your system even without you being aware. These exploits unfortunately quite commonly also evade your respected Anti-Virus solution.
