CoreLabs, the research arm of Core Security Technologies, is pleased to
announce a new release of CORE FORCE, a free software endpoint security
Core FORCE, a fully functional endpoint protection software for Windows 2000
and Windows XP systems, is released under the Apache 2.0 license and is
available for download at http://force.coresecurity.com.
CORE FORCE R0.95 b167 provides new features and updates based on user
feedback. Programs can now be moved across security profiles while they run.
Two new default security profiles have been added to run trusted and
untrusted programs in generic sandboxes.
This release of CORE FORCE includes the following new features:
* New security profiles for Trusted Programs and Untrusted Programs.
* Support to change the security profile for programs while they are
* New Run with security profile command to launch a program in a specific
* Alert notifications have been overhauled to provide more accurate
information and options to the user.
* Support for configuration of multiple executables in a program's security
* Firewall rules can now be configured for specific protocols other than
TCP, UDP & ICMP.
* Generic permissions can now be configured to initialize security levels'
permissions on a new program's security profile.
These new features have been designed to work together in common scenarios:
* If you want to install a new program and avoid restrictions for the
installer, you can launch it in the new Trusted Programs sandbox (or move it
to that security profile when it's running).
* If you download a suspicious program from the web and want to check it
out, you can run it in the Untrusted Programs sandbox where it won't be able
to write or delete stuff in your computer and communicate with remote
computers without your knowledge.
As in previous releases, we continue to improve CORE FORCE's stability and
compatibility based on feedback from beta users.
