Almost every computer has a "back door" that attackers can use to penetrate your digital home.
The Exploit Prevention component will keep data safe from malware that exploits vulnerabilities in popular applications to try to penetrate a system. When it detects that an attempt is being made to exploit a vulnerability, Dr.Web will forcibly terminate the process of the program being attacked.
An exploit is a malicious program, a sequence of commands, or special malicious code that exploits vulnerabilities to deliver Trojans into a system or hack software. There also exist exploit kits, which are designed to leverage a number of vulnerabilities.
An exploit lets attackers infiltrate systems covertly. Even if your OS is configured to warn you at program start-up that a program may be malicious, the malicious code in that program can be executed without your knowledge through the exploitation of vulnerabilities.
Dr.Web protects against exploits by intercepting programs that are being injected via a vulnerability.
