    Been aware of this for a while now but thought i'd make a thread here for the people who are clueless to it. Obviously if someone is sending you a basic txt file or excel spreadsheet 99% of people will suspect it is completely harmless however, theres now ready available tools on the dark net that allows people to bind their "dirty" servers,keyloggers,rats etc to these files completely undetectable so watch out what your recieving from people you dont know especially if the filesize of these files seem larger than the normal.

    The best solution is a software called "spyshelter" (not affiliate with them), and every time you computer want connect or send something you are informed and can block it, I mean you are safe from all the actual and future keylogger or shit like that

    This forum seems to filter 99% of things I try to post i'm guessing its due to the fact I dont have enough posts. The software you mentioned sounds similar to the one I use(sandboxie) and would recommend everyone to use 1 of the many similar products out there.

    I'm not affiliated with sandboxie in any shape or form. free software.

    Until you get enough posts to post links, you'll be barred from posting certain things, namely links and things that the filter could construe as avoiding the link block like (.com). I don't know what the link posting threshold is, I think it's around 20 posts.

    Also look for things that would crop up in spam regularly and just keep deleting bits until it goes through.

    Get a decent firewall like zonealarm, that will ask before allowing each outgoing connection. Its stopped me getting hacked several times!

    For your info, sandboxie is not free. its shareware, but obviously we can get it from torrent sites. Shadow defender is something similar to sandboxie

    My apologies your correct it isnt freeware I just checked however, I've used it for years and have never once had to purchase or subscribe to anything and this is without using a illegally obtained copy. Theres plenty similar software out there and I recommend them as a extra safety measure regardless of what software you decide to go with.
