API Hooking


Winpooch
uses the API Hooking method. It spies programs when they are running
and gives to the user a powerful control of their activity. For example,
you can forbid a program to write in a system directory or in the
registry, or else to connect to internet. That makes the difference
between others anti spywares using a database of known signatures.

Origins


Our
first aim was to develop a program that could detect virus infection
such as spywares and trojans. At the beginning, Winpooch (before the
version 0.5) was only able to alert the user when a program tried
something suspicious, but that was not enougth reactive. So we decided
to make a new release that could offer to the user a powerful control of
the computer system.
