Does Host IPS prevent operation on physical hard drive?

Jump to solution

Hey guys,

I recently came across a special virus which only operated physical harddrive to destroy MBR. As a consequence, all the user data were completely lost. What should we do to prevent this from happening again using Host IPS? Can Host IPS help to prevent a program from direct operation on physical hard drive?

You can access the following links for the online analysis of the virus behavior and see if Host IPS can help preveting that.

Thank you for your help.

I'm not aware of any functionality like this for the Host IPS product.
