ReHIPS / Re: Underappreciated software. REHIPS is awesome.
« Last post by fixer on March 30, 2021, 09:38:14 pm »
Hello, vectorbravo, and welcome to our forum.

Thank you for your kind words, we're doing our best :)

It's not free, but limitations in the free version are quite liberal. This blogpost covers licensing https://forum.rehips.com/index.php?topic=9613.0

Truth to tell, this pandemia thing affected us too and we had to switch to other projects for some time. And our code sign certificate expired, we hesitated to update it. But there is no turning back now, we've just purchased EV code sign certificate, so the next version will definitely be released :)

ReHIPS / Underappreciated software. REHIPS is awesome.
« Last post by vectorbravo on March 28, 2021, 04:00:13 am »
I am confused about REHIPS.  I am from an earlier era where ProcessGuard (DiamondCS) and Tiny Personal Firewall (that was so excellent before it was bought and destroyed), and similar.  There was also Comodo PF, which is actually still decent.  Anyway I have now come and re-evaluated what HIPS solutions there are for windows, and REHIPS stands out and ACTUALLY WORKING, and working on server OS such as windows 2016 and 2019, and on top of that it appears it's free?

But what blows my mind, and made me sign up here at this forum and post this, is why does no one know about it, and why are these forums essentially abandoned?  It's a ghost town!  The most recent post, as of the time I am posting this here, was back in January, a good SEASON ago, 3 months nearly gone by without a single post.

Definitely the REHIPS interface needs some love and rearrangement to make things make more sense, change the layout, make some settings more accessible, etc, but jeez the software WORKS man.  It's 2021, no flying cars, but I am still here running windows (sigh) and man I need a good HIPS.  Sandboxie is a mess.  Comodo is great but they hid the options and don't give the user granularity anymore, so I'm installing REHIPS now on my system.  It's the best option.  What other options are there?  Other old greats have been absorbed into other products.  Webroot swallowed one and killed it, no hips interface or options at all.  Just one after another they disappear.  Man even GMER used to have a HIPS mode.  What happened to that?

end rant

oh, so anyway, THANK YOU to the author/authors

It is still under development, though not so active.
But we plan to increase activity this year.

Apologies for not replying to this sooner. Thanks for the help and welcome.

Liking rehips. Excellent bit of software. Really looking forward to any future versions and updates and if you want a beta tester for any updates I'm willing to try it out.

Thanks again

ReHIPS / Re: MS Office programs hanging

Thanks, fixer. I don't think it's network, because even when I run it unisolated, network is blocked, but it still works just fine. So I will have to check out the other things you mentioned...

ReHIPS / Re: Copy User Data enable and then disable?
« Last post by fixer on September 08, 2020, 08:29:47 am »
Well, it took some time to respond. Shame on me :(

After enabling Copy User Data and if everything works fine, should we then disable it?
You're right. Once all the data is copied and everything works, you can disable it. In most cases a single start (maybe some button clicking inside the program for it to try to reach all the data is required) is enough. It's not critical to leave it enabled, but it's the best practice to disable it once you're done.

A second question concerns how to update User Data. Is it a simple matter of enabling this feature or should something more involved be done, for example deleting the appropriate ReHIPS User folder?
Isolated environments have their own settings. So basically they live their own lives. And usually it's not recommended to mix isolated and non-isolated executions of the same program. So no simple way to sync settings besides deleting and recreating isolated environment.

I took a look at Shadow Defender some time ago. Well it was pretty a long ago, so something (or a lot) changed. It uses some kind of shadowing and then reverts changes back. Implemented most likely as a filesystem filter driver and snapshooting (snapshotting?). It may be convenient, but I'm not sure about security. Confidentiality? They don't try to protect it, you can send all the data outside. Integrity? Questionable. I didn't see it trying to block driver loading and it levels the field making their driver useless. With the same level of access you can always circumvent it.

On the other hand, I didn't notice any ReHIPS incompatibilities. Though I don't see any advantages either from security point of view.
