Behavior Blocker Software: 5 Reason Why We Need it

What is Behavior Blocker Software?

Behavior blocker is a feature inside antivirus or antimalware software. The task of this feature is to protect its host by blocking any suspicious process running in the host. Behavior blocker is independent from signature base detection. It detects malware threat by recognizing the common behavior of the malware. When a malware is attacking your computer it will try to access some specific system functions in your computer. The behavior blocker will block the access to this system function in case the originator is suspected. Behavior Blocker feature is a very good defense against new created malware which is not yet listed in the virus signature database.

5 Reason Why We Need Behavior Blocker

1. Vulnerabilities in Un-Updated Software

To keep your computer safer from malware attack you need to regularly update all your installed software and application. Your software’s and applications usually have some vulnerability that can be used by attackers to get into your computer. We can make these vulnerabilities smaller by keep updating our software and application. Unfortunately it is not an easy task to do. With a lot of software and applications installed, and not all of them have the abilities to do automatic update. Regular software update is easier to say than to be done.

2. No Place is 100% Safe

Even though we are doing very carefully when surfing the internet still there are chances that we got malware infections from the internet. Do you know that Google Image Search can transfer malware to your computer? I thought Google is safe. Unfortunately it is not. Google Image Search is considered to be one of the most dangerous things to do in the internet. Do you know that Amazon sites can bring malware to your computer? Recent findings show that malware creators are using Amazon S3 sites to attack amazon users. You see, no place in the internet is 100% safe.

3. Increasing Threat of New Invented Malware

New malware is created every half second. That is a very scary fact. Recent findings from Sourcefire Security Vendor show that 75% of malware infection case is due to a new unique malware. Malware creators are somehow having access to a good funding to do their research on how to invent new strong malware. Many web security firms have confirmed the dramatically increased of malware attack on the last 6 months.

4. Signature Based Detection is not Enough

The glory days of signature based detection antivirus software is gone. With new malware being created every half second, antivirus software cannot keep up updating their database anymore. Many good windows anti malware software update their database several times a day but still 75% of malware infection case is due to a new unique malware. We need more than just signature base detection system. Behavior blocking software is one of the answers.

5. Affordable

Cheap anti virus protection is available. The best antimalware software does not have to be expensive. You can easily get affordable antimalware software which offers great protection features such as behavior blocker.


Recent facts and finding shows that antivirus with signature based detection only will not give you the best protection anymore. You need more function to guard you against new malware. Function such as behavior blocker. I know many people prefer to have free antivirus software. But in my opinion, instead of wondering around the internet looking and trying for the best free antimalware software you could save your valuable time by purchasing affordable antivirus protection software. Because when your computer is infected by malware, you will in addition lose not only your valuable time but maybe also your valuable data and money.
