Extended special offer: 2 licenses for the price of 1!
If you missed our special offer while you were on vacation last month — no worries! We’re extending our great summer "twofer" offer until August 10, 2010!
So you can still purchase Outpost Firewall Pro or Outpost Security Suite Pro with a huge discount — two one-year licenses for the price of one! Both products are licensed to protect up to 3 PCs, so get together with friends or family and grab this opportunity for award-winning security before this offer is gone for good!
Outpost 7.0.2 — now updated to protect against LNK exploit
Here’s a reminder that we have recently released version 7.0.2 of Outpost Security Suite Pro and Outpost Antivirus Pro. If you haven’t already done so, we strongly recommend you install this update as soon as possible to protect yourself against the recently-discovered .lnk vulnerability and associated Trojan infections.
The problem came to light late last month with the emergence of the Stuxnet worm, which exploits a vulnerability in the Windows .LNK code that enables you to launch applications from your desktop using shortcuts. The exploit appears to distribute itself via USB devices, facilitating the spread of Trojans and other targeted malware.
You can find more details of LNK threat at Agnitum’s website.
In closing, we wish you a happy end of summer that’s free from computer security problems. We’ll make sure everyone gets the best possible defense against Internet threats, so you can relax while Agnitum takes care of your security!
As always, we appreciate your feedback, so please use our webmail form or blog to send us your comments and opinions.
With best wishes,
Your Agnitum team
