  1. Lately I have been astonished at how much gets past my HIPS when I am installing from trusted sources. Sure that makes Windows update 300x's simpler and less likely to screw up and makes installing known trusted programs a breeze, but at what cost? This is essentially a potential backdoor into my system, and I don't like that. Plus I feel as if I hand over too much control to OA, kind of like it is on auto-pilot deciding for me what is safe and what isn't. Doing a Windows update is the perfect example of this. As you update, you see the pop-up notification telling you This and That is trusted, and it installs without asking you anything. Is there a way to turn this feature off? I just looked over my options and I think I may have found the cause. 'Use Online Armor whitelist'. I assume this is where all the auto-trusting is coming from? If I disable this, would there be any point to having the Oasis lookup enabled? And would this solve my problem? Thanks for any help!
  2. That is indeed strange. This is why I have long since disabled the 'Automatically allow trusted programs to access the internet' option. IMO this should be off by default. Although the fact that OA automatically trusted the sample means it could have installed on your system if it was a real piece of malware.
