I have asked this in another thread and I do apologize if it's already been asked here. As regards blocking malicious and phishing sites and general browsing security how does CleanBrowsing DNS compare to Neustar DNS?
That is a bit hard to say, since CleanBrowsing does not display warnings, the webpage simply fails to load, but technically it is blocked. As far as I can say, it is comparable to Neustar, if you pick Family filter, which also blocks proxies and such, it gets a little better. As for blocking malicious content, DNS can not block malicious downloads, they are mostly hosted on legitimate webpages, but I have seen Neustar to block C&C botnet.As regards blocking malicious and phishing sites and general browsing security how does CleanBrowsing DNS compare to Neustar DNS?
Thanks for the info. Seems CleandBrowsing and Neustar are on par. I was thinking more on blocking malicious sites not downloads.

Neustars servers = usaCleanBrowsing DNS compare to Neustar DNS?
Thanks!@Decopi[/USER] - You can also uyse... if it works for you.
Thank you for the detailed reply I really appreciate it.Neustars servers = usa
Cleanbrowsing = europe
what i have been testing the phishtank urls mostly, cleanbrowsing actually blocks some of the phishing links...but the extensions are doing it much better still
I have never seen neustar block phishing url, but its very good to block torrent /hack/warez sites. I tried business protection once and it was very effective family filter wide, but still blocksi extension is better since you can whitelist
Currently im using google dns with google chrome , and last phishtank urls like 100 of them...google blocked everything
Im not sure if the google DNS can do any better than actual safe browsing (doubt that)
1) yes, they are basically the same. Firstly, you have to disable avast's self-defense (to prevent it from deleting those hosts entries)then add hosts entries -> right-click the hosts file -> properties -> security -> edit -> choose "SYSTEM" account -> tick "Deny" on "Write" permission -> done1) About the blocked telemetry in your host file... is it the same I saw in your very old posts? Or have you changed/updated it? Please, do you mind posting again your blocked telemetry items?
2) I understand you have conflicts with OsArmor/Windows 8. But I am curious about your opinion of AVAST + OSArmor + SysHardener. Do you recommend to use the 3 at the same time? Is it your dream combo?
just had a quick lookHas anyone tested Cryptonite? It's supposed to be free the first 30 days.
Download Cryptonite - Online Identity Protection for Firefox. Everything you need to protect your business from phishing attacks and other malicious threats to prevent data leakage.addons.mozilla.org
I have just tested phishtank urls only, and with google safe browsing, blocksi and the only urls that it misses are detected by bitdefender only in virustotal ...but once again running 2x extensions i rather decide to go with one and thats blocksi... thats why i have been thinking moving to bitdefender antivirus for webfilter + blocksi as extension...and then again harden the whole configure with + H_C with allow exe. rules
But remember testing the extensions throught malc0de or phishtank is different situation than visiting malicious/phishing site in real lifeI have Adguard extension with Nocoin filter list activated, Google Safe Browsing, Windows Defender Browser Protection and Emsisoft Browser Security. I never watch EBS block or tell me something. It's gonna be bye bye.....I'm really questioning the effectiveness of emsisoft browser security
it almost never blocks anything for me while Google Safe Browsing API and Windows Defender Browser protection have blocked a lot (FPs included)
I guess it's good against known malicious websites and has a big database but not great against something very new
WDBP and google have more number of users over the world so it could be a factor that they are more effective for me
nobody knows about emsisoft in my country, literally
