New E-Mail Virus Protection System Announces $10,000.00 Worldwide Challenge

Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from Gatekeeper LLC

    WASHINGTON, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 1, 2001, Gatekeeper LLC
 announced its eagerly awaited challenge to the worldwide virus writing
 community. $10,000.00 will be awarded to the first registered challenger to
 successfully penetrate a designated system protected by the new E-mail
 GateKeeper virus protection system.
     Mason Stewart, President of Gatekeeper, LLC, stated, "We are issuing the
 challenge because we believe current virus protection systems can no longer be
 depended upon to work effectively."  Published news sources reported that up
 to 80% of the computers infected by the Melissa virus had functioning virus
 protection systems that were up and running at the time of the infection.
 Unfortunately, the signature scanning method being used by the security
 products to detect viruses was hopelessly inadequate.  Today's more
 sophisticated e-mail borne viruses routinely defeat this archaic form of virus
 protection.
     "Consequently, we developed a 'better mouse trap'," says Stewart.  "It
 provides our clients with complete and total protection from all forms of
 e-mail borne viruses.  We at Gatekeeper, LLC are confident enough in the
 strength of our product to put our money where our mouth is."
     Complete rules and details of the $10,000.00 E-mail GateKeeper challenge
