Roaring Penguin Software releases CanIt 9.3.2

CanIt 9.3.2 concentrates on Improving Security Features

Roaring Penguin Software Inc., announces the release of CanIt 9.3.2

CanIt 9.3.2 provides the following new features:

  • End Users can be given sufficient privileges to request specific domains to be exempted from URL-proxying. This allows end users to reduce false positives for companies that use URL redirection.
  • CanIt can detect PDF files that contain JavaScript; JavaScript in a PDF is often used to deliver viruses. The system administrator can set up a policy to deal with these attachments.
  • CanIt can extract URLs from PDF documents for testing against the known-phishing list.

Summary of Software releases CanIt 9.2.10 to CanIt 9.3.1

9.2.10 improved an important new technique to assist in the detection of viruses using macros within Microsoft Office© documents. It also improved log Searching

Major New Features include:

  • CanIt 9.2.9 introduced a new test that detects macros in Microsoft Office© documents that are designed to auto start as soon as the document is opened. Such macros are highly suggestive of the presence of macro viruses. CanIt 9.2.10 improves upon this feature by increasing the granularity available to a system administrator. The test is split into three tests that look for Auto_Open, Document_Open and Workbook_Open Macros in MS office documents. Being able to score the different macros differently allows the system administrator more control in accepting some of the more benign uses of Macros.
  • Improvements to CanIt's compound rule feature includes allowing the creation of powerful "Meta Rules" (A rule can refer back to a list of other rules hit so far.) (Appliance Only)The log lines resulting from a log search can be downloaded as plain text.
