||BitDefender Internet Security 10
BitDefender Internet Security v10 covers all the security needs
of an Internet-connected family. It provides comprehensive protection
against viruses, spyware, spam, scams, phishing attempts, intruders
and objectionable web content.
BitDefender Internet Security 10 is designed to place as little
burden as possible on its users and on the host system, while providing
state-of-the-art defense against current Internet threats.
The purpose of the antivirus module is to ensure detection and removal
of all viruses in the wild. BitDefender Antivirus uses robust scan
engines certified by ICSA Labs, Virus Bulletin, Checkmark, CheckVir
The firewall module filters network traffic and controls the access
permission of applications connecting to the Internet. In Stealth
Mode, your computer is “hidden” from malicious software
and hackers. The firewall module is capable of automatically detecting
and protecting against port scans (streams of packets sent to a
machine in order to find “access points”, often in preparation
for an attack).
The new and improved BitDefender Antispam technology employs remarkable
technological innovations which allow it to adapt to new spamming techniques
as they emerge, and to “learn” its user’s preferences
to block spam while maintaining a very low ratio of legitimate mails tagged
BitDefender monitors and prevents potential spyware threats in real-time,
before they can damage your system. By making use of a comprehensive database
of spyware signatures, it will keep your computer spyware-free.
The BitDefender parental control module can block access to web sites,
e-mails you deem inappropriate, or the Internet (for certain periods of
time, such as when it’s “homework time”), and it can
prevent applications such as games, chat, file-sharing programs or others

- Proactive Detection
B-HAVE (Behavioral Heuristic Analyzer in Virtual Environments) emulates
a virtual computer-inside-a-computer where pieces of software are
run in order to check for potential malware behavior. This BitDefender
proprietary technology represents a new security layer that keeps
the operating system safe from unknown viruses by detecting malicious
pieces of code for which signatures have not yet been released.
- Permanent Antivirus Protection
The new and improved BitDefender scanning engines will scan and disinfect
infected files on access, minimizing data loss. Infected documents
can now be recovered instead of being deleted.
- Rootkit Detection and Removal
A new BitDefender module looks for rootkits (malicious programs designed
to control victim computers, while staying hidden) and removes them
- Web Scanning
Web traffic is now filtered in real-time even before reaching your
browser, providing a safe and enjoyable web experience.
- Peer-2-Peer and IM Applications Protection
Filters against viruses that spread via instant messaging and file
sharing software applications.
- Full E-mail Protection
BitDefender runs on the POP3/SMTP protocol level, filtering incoming
and outgoing e-mail messages, regardless of the e-mail client used
(OutlookTM, Outlook ExpressTM, The Bat!TM, Netscape®, etc.), without
any additional configuration.
- Internet Traffic Control
Defines exactly which incoming or outgoing connections to permit/deny.
Defines rules regarding specific protocols, ports, applications and/or
- IMPROVED Internet Application Control
BitDefender maintains a database of trusted applications, and informs
users whether or not the applications demanding network access are
trustworthy, so they can make informed decisions. Alternatively, BitDefender
can grant access automatically for trusted applications.
- Connection Control
BitDefender lets you see in real-time which programs have opened which
connections to the network. You can choose to allow or block them,
either permanently or temporarily, by a single mouse click.
- Stealth Mode
Malicious individuals or software programs need not find out that
your computer even exists, let alone provide services to the network.
The Stealth Mode option will stop your machine from responding to
attempts to find out which ports are open, or where exactly it is.
- Port Scan Detection
The BitDefender firewall module is now able to automatically detect
and block port scans. A port scan is a simple way to find out whether
or not your computer might be vulnerable; it consists of an attempt
at connecting to ports to see if there is any response, much like
a burglar trying doors to find one that is open.
- Firewall Wizard
The firewall wizard helps users select the security profile which
is most appropriate for the setting they are in - at home, in the
office or on the go.
- IMPROVED Adaptive Filtering
BitDefender employs advanced clustering and neural network analysis
techniques to classify e-mail based on user preference and emerging
patterns in the local collection of e-mails. The antispam Bayesian
filter can be trained by the user (by simply classifying some e-mail
as spam or legitimate) and is also self-trained, continually developing
new filtering criteria based on past decisions.
BitDefender’s new phishing detector keeps your computer clear
of malicious e-mails trying to trick you into giving away your bank
account information or other sensitive data.
- Heuristic, URL, Whitelist/Blacklist, Charset and Image Filters
Five types of filters further refine your control over e-mail. The
heuristic filter checks mail for the characteristics of spam. The
Whitelist/Blacklist filter rejects mail from known spammer addresses
and lets your friends’ mail through. The URL filter blocks mail
containing malicious links, while the charset filter blocks mail written
in “strange” characters. The image filter decides whether
images embedded in e-mails are specific to spam.
- Compatibility and Outlook Integration
BitDefender antispam is compatible with all e-mail clients. The BitDefender
antispam toolbar in Microsoft OutlookTM and Outlook ExpressTM allows
users to train the Bayesian filter.
- Real-Time Antispyware
BitDefender monitors dozens of potential “hotspots” in
your system where spyware might act, and also checks any changes made
to your system and software. Known spyware threats are also blocked
- Spyware Scanning and Cleaning
BitDefender can scan your entire system, or just part of it, for known
spyware threats. The scan uses a constantly updated spyware signature
- Privacy Protection
The privacy guard monitors HTTP (web) and SMTP (mail) traffic flowing
out of your computer for what might be personal information –such
as credit card numbers, Social Security numbers and other user-defined
strings (e.g. bits of passwords).
A configurable anti-dialer prevents malicious applications from running
up a huge telephone bill at your expense.
- Web Control
A URL filter enables you to block access to inappropriate web content.
A list of candidates for blocking both sites and parts thereof is
provided and updated by BitDefender, as part of the regular update
- IMPROVED Heuristic Web Filtering
Heuristic filters automatically classify web pages based on content
and other cues. Instead of relying only on keywords, this approach
applies antispam research principles when classifying web pages. Predefined
profiles based on user age are provided.
- Web Keyword Filter
BitDefender users can now explicitly block all web pages which contain
specific words or phrases.
- Mail Keyword Filter
Incoming e-mail which contains inappropriate words or phrases can
be filtered before reaching the Inbox.
- Web Time Limiter
Using the web time limiter, you can allow or block web access for
users or applications during specified intervals of time.
- Application Control
Any application can be prevented from running. Games, media and messaging
software, as well as other categories of software and malware can
be blocked in this way. This type of blocking also protects applications
from modifications, copying or moving.
- IMPROVED Deployment and Use
A setup wizard starts immediately after installation, helping users
select the most appropriate update settings, implementing a scanning
schedule and providing a quick path to the registration and activation
of the product.

ease of use and clutter avoidance. As a result, many BitDefender v10
modules require significantly less user interaction, through the convenient
use of automation and machine learning.
