Free Mamutu Malware Blocker!

Gizmo’s is on a role. This is a third freebie in what one week? Mamutu Malware Blocker is a behavior blocker tool by EMSI Software, the developer of a-squared Anti-Malware. To be honest I personally don’t know how good or bad Mamutu is but from this description…

Behavior blockers detect malware not from their signature but by their actions. That is, they look at what programs on your PC are actually doing and will raise an alarm if that behavior is typical of malware activity.

Because behavior blockers don’t use signatures they can detect new threats not yet in your anti-virus program’s signature database. These new, so called zero-day threats are becoming increasingly common. That’s why a behavior blocker is the perfect companion to a signature based anti-virus program.

…it seems Mamutu does the same thing as the always-free, and one of my favorite security software, Threatfire.

    Hi, Ashraf,

    Do you know whether Mamutu 2.0 would be a suitable replacement for my Emsisoft A-squared Anti-malware, given the free 12-month licence I got from GotD, has just expired?

    I have Threatfire and don’t really know whether it’s worthwhile having A2 Anti-mal or Mamutu, as well.

    Hi all! Just a question to you all out there who are far more clued in than I am: Is this program better (performance-wise, as in stopping the nasties) than Threatfire or Drive Sentry? I used to use Threatfire but it burned up a lot of CPU, so I changed to the free version of Drive Sentry. So far, so good. No conflicts, no great rise in CPU, no nasties. However, I do have A2 as my resident guard, so this will obviously live harmoniously with it. But is it any good? A2 in and of itself is excellent, but I don’t know how effective this prog is. Anyone have any insight they may be able to share? I’d be most grateful to hear your opinions before I install it.

    This is from a forum post:

    “A lot of members are mentioning the CPU usage of TF. This was the reason for me to do some testing. And Yes compared to Mamutu, ThreatFire uses about 600% more CPU time! in a 1 hour internet session. Now comes the surprise, when I checked disk access, CPU performance and multi thread performance, it turned aout that:
    – disk access is as fast (of TF and Mamutu)
    – multi thread performance of TF is about 8 percent FASTER!
    – in CPU benchmarks TF scores a 11% BETTER/FASTER result”
