Many of my faithful blog readers already know about this, but I thought I’d bring it up just in case.
There are two tools that Eric Howes, Sunbelt’s Director of Malware Research, has developed for the good of the community.
IE-SPYAD adds a long list of bad domains to the Restricted sites zone.
Enough is Enough (EiE) securely configures the Internet zone. It is a pretty significant “lock-down” of IE and will give a system a much more secure configuration than the default options in IE, but many won’t be able to handle the hassle of adding frequently visited sites to the Trusted sites zone. In such cases, IE-SPYAD is a good alternative — less intrusive, yet still protective against known nasty sites.
