I'm currently using Kaspersky Internet Security 2015; and I use Safe Money for online shopping/internet banking. Does anyone know, if Safe Money is any good/actually works?

It does something:

Before it even opens a website, Safe Money verifies that it isn't a fraud, and double-checks the site's security certificate. If your own system suffers security vulnerabilities that could put your private data at risk, it won't continue until you fix them. Once it does launch, it protects the browser against attacks like code injection and reading data from browser memory. It also blocks key logging and screen scraping.
So it works, but I haven't tested it. Maybe @Manzai can test it with phishing links to see if they are blocked. I would gladly do it, the only problem is that Ubuntu is my only VM which cannot imitate a Windows System, doubt if there's a Kaspersky for Linux at all.

I would like to forward the following post i made on the ESET Forums regarding Safe Money.
My professional opinion of the design is bloatware. You don't need extra toolbars, extensions, addons, virtual environments which provide false sense of protection. You simply need a product that watches for keyloggers, and also rootkits, as well as scans ports 80 and 443 for http and https respectively.

Windows also has a virtual keyboard already.

As cowpipe stated, your vendor needs a good phishing database as well.

Hi Cowpipe! I have messaged Manzai, I hope may be Manzai would be so kind and do a review. Hope you are well.

Hi Tony,
I've actually had a really great day myself, so I'm doing good thanks! Hope you're well too :) If Manzai needs some links he is more than welcome to PM me, or I might even put a whole bunch up on the virus exchange so everybody can test ;)

Going off topic slightly, when was it you were going to meet Lady G? Seems to have slipped from my memory :oops:

Actually you can do these tests yourselves, the links are not malicious, they just trick you into entering your personal data. I always run Phishing Links from the Malware Hub with only Sandboxie as it is no harm if you already know it's phishing. Even trojan-infested sites are safe as long as you don't click ANY prompt.
