Introducing Haute Secure, the malware filter

Wednesday, 11 July 2007, 6:14 AM EST

Haute Secure is a malware filter, much like a phishing or spam filter in existing applications. It provides a beautiful interface and toolbar to IE (and soon Firefox) which protects users from incoming malware on a variety of levels, starting from the site level to the execution level. If cnn.com were to be hacked tomorrow with an unreleased exploit that would attempt to download a worm or other malware on visitors’ machines, Haute would be able to detect that, and block the exploit from happening. When this happens, Haute will communicate with its servers and post a notification, so a site becomes known “bad” as users stumble upon it. But Haute doesn’t only rely on its users; it also ships with a very large database of malicious sites out there. Haute is also smart enough to avoid tagging an entire domain as “bad”.
