Instead of all those negative votes my previous comment received, it would have been nicer if someone really told me how to use the program because I was serious and I did not mean that this program is useless.
Bulshoay sbaseeba anyway.

Is this giveaway so bad that you guys rated it so badly!? I used it long ago and found it quiet helpful back then. But no proper reviews for the product does make me a bit skeptical about using it. I use Kingsoft AV [the best AV i.m.h.o] and it pretty much takes care of all the backdoors and also keeps the hackers away. I'm gonna download the app and determine for myself if it helps in any better way. Thanks Kyle.

@ #9 ""Years ago through trials, before Giveaway, I came across an AV program that tracked IP addresses, and one would be surprised, that the stuff you see from Hollywood is true. I followed a trail of information that criss-crossed several times around the globe before it reached its destination, or more directly, my system. The real question is; are we ever truly secure?""

I expect that this wasn't your program - BUT I use the successor to "Peer Guardian" called "Peer Block 1.1+ (r691) Beta release - and have used the preceeding versions..... This shows just how many - and there are THOUSANDS of attempts to access my home (Personal) computer - and stops 'em all.

It is a "Must Have" security program as far as I'm concerned.

How about a rule or two posted as one sees on most forums? How about this:

1) IF YOU HAVEN'T DOWNLOADED AND EVALUATED THIS SOFTWARE PLEASE NO POST. I really don't care why you can't use this software.

2) IF YOU HAVEN'T DOWNLOADED AND EVALUATED THIS SOFTWARE PLEASE NO VOTING ON IT'S MERITS. It is unfair to the developer who avails this software. It is unfair to those of us who look at ratings. Ratings become meaningless.

MEMBERS .. DO YOU AGREE?

Why oh why do people feel the need to post "I have nothing to say"?

If you don't do any photo work, don't comment on a photo program. Don't do art? Leave the comments on an art program to others. Don't have a clue what a server is? Don't bother telling us about your ignorance. It's just fine not to need it, you don't need to tell us.

In grade school, did you endlessly raise your hand to tell the teacher you didn't have to go to the bathroom?

@ Nikolai Igor Stepan : I’m also a ‘novice’ when it comes to learning about FTP Servers, backtracing, etc. I would like to know the answers to your questions, But GOTD comments section is not likely a good place to get them. I believe the answers require more time and space than is appropriate here.

However, here’s a suggestion>> Do a web search on “Apache HTTP Server” to begin learning about this whole topic. A good place to start is http://httpd.apache.org/. There you will find a complete discussion of the Apache HTTP Server and links to related topics.

I think there is a real learning curve for both of us before we will know if the GOTD is something we can use and if it is any good.

Now I know for sure that the voting system here is junk!

It appears that nearly 300 people have already installed and configured this for there server. Wow! That was FAST.

For anyone with use of the software, here's a little review.

I downloaded some logs from my server to test this out. At first I downloaded some access logs, but the program only works with error log files. This makes sense, but is also a red flag for me. Any good security program will be looking at both access & error logs. After all - a brute force password attack isn't going to show up in the error logs!

So, I downloaded the error logs of a few of the sites I host. None of them are all that big, so I don't have too much to report here. The program does a nice job of classifying each of the line entries under the various tabs the program has (which act sort of like categories.) It gives you a really nice visual representation of what's going on. If you're the type to manually look over logs, this program may be of interest to you.

If however, you're a true security hound - then you know as well as I that you already have scripts in place on your server to process the logs and look for suspicious activity - and it probably looks at both access & error logs. This is the ideal solution as the program can cut the hacks off at the source by adding firewall rules or using other methods to say bye-bye to the hackers.

I was unable to test the FTP functionality in the software - I have FTP turned off on my server and from what I can tell, the program only supports normal FTP (no FTPS or SFTP...)

All in all, not a keeper IMHO.

@4, FYI, I work around MANY types with PHd's, MBA's that can't understand they must press the power button on the PC to turn it on.

Now, as far as this program goes, looks useful for "lab" testing in a virtual environment.

@6: (A) - Because it's people like you who think Unix is untouchable makes having a tool such as this in the bag needed. Apple pukes once thought their OS was untouchable too. ;-)
(B) Really? Since when is hardening a system, any system, a bad thing? And yep, MS sux's so bad, that's why it's all over. Embrace what you don't understand.

Wouldn't be nice if we could see how many actual downloads there are, instead of just the up and down votes.

Thanks GOTD for all the daily offerings. Much appreciated...

Very useful for me. If you know how to use ftp, then will help me to check it is good or bad connect.
Thank GAOTD

Hi GAOTD
I don't know what to say about this program because I really can't understand what it does. I'm just a novice user of such programs.
So, I can't download and install the program except after someone tells me the meaning of these words:
•Automatic log downloading from remote FTP or local server.
•Automatic log analysis.
•Error validation.
•Autofilter to remove spurious alerts.
•Attackers IP address detection for backtrace or correlation.
•One-click WhoIs? for intruder identification.
•International support
Furthermore, what is an "Apache server"?
Thanks a lot GAOTD.

Unless you are running or own a firm such as banks, loan facilities or any other that contain sensitive data, honestly this thing is not really feasible for the average home user.
I can understand if you do business out of the home and have secure data such as names addresses and credit card or bank account info.
I can think of better things for those who are average users.
Years ago through trials, before Giveaway, I came across an AV program that tracked IP addresses, and one would be surprised, that the stuff you see from Hollywood is true. I followed a trail of information that criss-crossed several times around the globe before it reached its destination, or more directly, my system. The real question is; are we ever truly secure?

I honestly "like" the variety of software that GOTD offers, but when it comes to business' - I have owned a few - proper grammar & especially spelling, were paramount to make others aware & respect your offerings; and, today - with spell-check - there is NO reason why a 'program' aimed at business, should not at least adhere to what we had drilled into our heads (for me 16 years - Bach. of Bus. Admin.) I do trust with my business, someone who is so casual with theirs. Thank you GOTD - keep up the great job - love helping wherever I can.

#!: Yes. But does it do the job it claims? Yes to that also. $50 bucks is a little high for use little guys who do not run a professional shop on which many. many users depend. It is works and does what it says.

I believe that are a number of other control features that this software could have that would make it more valuable. But, for free, if you have a need, download and use! Good company; I am using some of their other software.

1. "[...] for dedicated servers.". This is the wrong place for such software. (Or modify description accordingly).

Why? (a) If I had a dedicated server, it would run on some Unix flavor. When you want reliability and security, Microsoft is certainly not the first choice (who wants to shutdown a server for security updates almost every day?). Then checking logs would be done using native server scripting tools. (b) If, like many people, I'd use a cheaper mutualized server, then I could have a use of this kind of software. But I'd be unlucky with this GOTD because a mutualized server is not a dedicated server.

2. No detailed features, no user guide: the developer's website is full of emptyness. It is not my job to find out what this product does exactly, and HOW it does it (which is of most importance regarding IP tracking).

3. Given the lack of explanations, had to find some screenshots. The ones I found always show the same thing: errors (not all though) have a reddish background. Don't know about you but I find $50 for coloring lines in a text file a bit expensive and 11 MB (lol) overkill.

Thumbs down.

Really "investiguation" and I'm supposed to trust my system security to someone who can't spell check? I'd guess this writer had four years of college and now he are an engineer?

On a more serious note, I'm not sure why I would need this program. This sounds like it can get logs from remote systems (I can do this with SCP), look over the logs for suspicious activity (again, not rocket science) look up the attacker's information (I can use whois). This doesn't seem to bring anything new to the table and since I don't know what the program considers a "spurious alert", trusting the program could leave me blindsided. While this program may make some minor housekeeping duties a little easier, I just don't see it as useful enough to justify the disk space on my machines, much less a $50.00 price tag.

@1 Just because it's not of use to you does not mean it's not useful to others.

Always amazed how quick people are to vote thumbs down, or post something negative. Folks, you don't have to download it if you don't want it.

I can't judge on this software today. The program is too specific for me as a normal home user as I'm not a professional in this field.

thanks anyway
much appreciated
