Benign™ - Benign™ completely neutralizes or strips out the code that makes viruses, worms, scripts and other potentially harmful things run. That's why we called it Benign, it makes downloading your e-mail completely safe. In fact, it's the perfect companion to our other product - MailWasher Pro.

Did you know viruses and e-mail worms can run automatically just by reading your e-mail? What about links called web bugs that automatically confirm you have a valid address as soon as you preview your e-mail? If this happens, you have a good chance that some marketing company will start sending you lots of spam because they know your address works! Benign can ensure your privacy, by removing both known and probable web bugs.

With new viruses and worms being released all the time, antivirus companies have to quickly write new code to stop these new threats, only when they have been notified of the new threat. This doesn't help you! you may have already received the virus, or not updated your antivirus software in time, thereby causing havoc to your computer.
In the case of e-mail worms, these can spread so quickly across thousands of computers that widespread damage and embarrassment can occur. Don't wait until your antivirus software is updated; use Benign to neutralise all future attacks!

The facts about HTML e-mail and e-mail borne viruses

HTML e-mail allows you to send fancy looking e-mail to your friends. What is not widely known is it can contain scripts and ActiveX components to automatically run programs to delete or modify files or let an outside user spy on you. Benign can strip out and rewrite the bad HTML or the entire HTML so just plain text is left.

Attachments can contain viruses or other threats. Some e-mail programs allow these attachments to run automatically as soon as a user previews a message. The most virulent virus ever, the Klez virus exploits this vulnerability. Benign can strip these attachments out or just rename them so they won't run.

E-mail can contain embedded images to track those who read their messages. As soon as you preview the e-mail, it will send back information to the sender to say you have read their message and so the sender knows you have a working address and can send you more junk. Benign strips out this identifier information.

Most e-mail programs are able to be exploited by viruses and e-mail worms. Benign can prevent you being a victim of this vulnerability.

Quick answers to common questions

Will Benign alter any of my computer settings?

The only thing Benign will do is add a .b9 extension on to the end of your POP3 settings. So, if you have your ISP as Earthlink, it will change it from mail.earthlink.net to mail.earthlink.net.b9 This allows Benign to pick up the e-mail and process it before passing it on to your e-mail program.

Will Benign alter the way my e-mail look?

Benign won't alter how your messages look, unless you have decided to strip out all HTML which will mean you will only get the text version of your message.

How does Benign work?

If you're not using Benign, your mail program downloads new messages by contacting the remote server on which your e-mail is currently stored. You will be exposed to all the vulnerability e-mail holds.

If you do use Benign, your e-mail program will contact Benign, instead of the remote server. Benign will then send the command to the remote server and intercept the e-mail, then filter and process the e-mail before passing the neutralized message on to your mail program. This is all done instantly with no delay.

What happens inside Benign?

When an e-mail is intercepted by Benign, the key information is extracted and then every aspect of the e-mail is completely rewritten with the information presented free of any malicious code. Likewise any attachments that can be used maliciously are quarantined with a new extension that makes it impossible for them to be automatically executed. This way Benign protects not only against known security problems but also against a large number of attacks yet to be discovered.

Is Benign an anti-virus program?

No, Benign is not an anti-virus program in the strict sense of the word. In order to catch viruses, Anti-virus products match up known viruses with a virus signature. Therefore the virus has to be known. Benign works in a way that will quarantine suspected attachments so they can't run automatically. Benign will catch all known and future e-mail viruses and worms, but cannot catch viruses downloaded from the internet or transferred from disk. Therefore it is still advisable to run an updated anti-virus program.

SpySubtract provides fast and accurate detection of spyware programs, including Trojans, adware, dialers, cookies, browser hijackers, and computer monitoring software. SpySubtract also examines spyware within running programs. Fast scan times ensure you don't spend valuable time waiting for scans to complete.

Since most spyware connects itself to other programs and even system files, programs that automatically detect and delete spy programs can cause problems with or disable other programs tied to the spyware.

SpySubtract informs you how each spyware program is connected to your system before YOU decide to remove it. Once detected, you can view information about the type of spyware present, where it came from and what your level of risk is. You then have the option of removing the spyware from your system. SpySubtract also performs an automatic backup of items before removing them, allowing you to restore later if necessary. Order SpySubtract PRO here.
