Snuffleupagus

We're dealing with PHP code for most of ToolsLib services, which means that despite the efforts in writing a secure code we still have to regularly mitigate regular CVE found in PHP components. While we have been very reactive to apply fixes, it's better if we can take pro-active measures.
Snuffleupagus has proved to be a very valuable tool so far. Its integration is a major improvement for the security of all the services that we provide, and we deeply care to keep our data safe, especially the one of our users who trust us millions times each month.

AdwCleaner : Patch du fichier dnsapi.dll

by fr33tux
Depuis quelques semaines, une nouvelle vague d'infection apparaît. Elle cause les troubles habituels pour un adware : la navigation web est polluée de redirections et de publicités intrusives.
Elle se distingue néanmoins par son mode d'action qui la rend délicate à supprimer : elle modifie un fichier système (utilisé par Microsoft Windows pour la résolution de noms de domaines) afin d'en perturber son fonctionnement et dans le cas présent, de mentir sur les résolutions DNS.
AdwCleaner prend en charge ce type d'infection depuis la version 5.010 publiée le 4 Octobre 2015.
