PredatorWatch Discovers the "Cure" for Hacking, Viruses and Worms

Patented Invention Claims to Be The Cure -- Providing Truly Proactive Network Security

NORTH CHELMSFORD, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 14, 2005 -- PredatorWatch Inc., a leading manufacturer of turnkey network security and vulnerability quarantine appliances, today announced they have discovered the cure for hacking, viruses and worms. The "cure" goes beyond treating the symptoms and removes the root cause of the problem. Hacking, viruses and worms are chronic problems that caused over $100B in damages in 2004, according to CERT & Mi2g Intelligence Unit, and continues to grow explosively.

Every computer and piece of networking equipment has its own genetic code. Within each of these components, there may reside a defect exploitable by a hacker, virus or worm. A hacker can use the defects, also known as Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE®s) as defined by MITRE Corporation, to install a worm, take control of the system, or even change and delete files.

"Today's networks are at critical risk because any device, wired or wireless, can have one or more CVEs that open just enough of a window that a hacker can exploit to gain access," said Michael Su, Vice President of Engineering of PredatorWatch. "CVEs are the systemic cause of over 95% of all network security breaches and must be addressed. The only way to be sure a network is safe is to lock the doors and eliminate CVEs before attackers strike.

"I believe most government agencies and businesses across America are tired of dealing with a mail server being down, or a web server being hacked or a database of confidential information being stolen on their network. Anyone who has been the victim of some form of hacking, virus or worm can tell you how much it has negatively impacted their life and the bottom line. All of the major solutions on the market today do a wonderful job at attempting to attack the symptom and not the cause. Today, we announce our discovery on how to improve the genetic code of your weak network -- our customers are finding that it is The Cure."
