View Full Version : fondamental software for detection intrusion and virus

I noticed that no mention of network analyzer IDS , NIDS , HIDS software , for me in these times is fondamental for detect intrusion and virus , for know in detail what happens on your computer.

in essence you can hear all communications to your computer and the answers, read the packet and whic computers are connected ip and host mac adress ecc... and what they do.

i have used colasoft freee network analyzer in the past I recommend it exist one free version very complete.

I wish microsoft would put in windows 10 along with a good firewall would be great

The leading open source NIDS are Snort and Suricata. But it's not something I would recommend to less experienced users.

thanks I want try suricata , or alternatively if anyone is curious something more simple is wireshark .

Wireshark is an excellent tool, the best in its category according to me, but it is not an IDS.

Wireshark is a packet sniffer/analyzer.
