Kaspersky Internet Security 2014
Kaspersky's powerful suite offers even more protection

Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 is the latest version of Kaspersky's powerful security suite, a combination of antivirus, firewall, spam filter, antiphishing tool, ad blocker and parental controls system (amongst other functionality).

This new edition adds "Trusted Applications Mode", an extra layer of security in which only known and safe programs are allowed to run on your system. Sounds interesting, although beware, Kaspersky says the availability of Trusted Applications Mode depends on your region, provider and other technical factors (it seems like you'll just have to check the trial version to see if you're in luck).

Elsewhere, the Parental Controls system now includes a permissions system to decide who can run particular games and applications.

Safe Money automatically protects your transactions with even more online banks and web stores, while also allowing you to choose your preferred browser.

There's new protection against screen lockers (malware which locks your system and demands a fee to release it), while the anti-phishing module has been improved and updated.

And a stronger focus on performance brings a host of welcome benefits. The suite starts more quickly; GUI performance has been improved; resource use is down; and the system switches to a new "limited activity" mode when your PC is idle, so reducing its workload and helping to extend battery life.

What's new in 2014 revision D?

- Some interface issues.
- Issues with Virtual Keyboard, Block dangerous websites module, and Kaspersky URL Advisor plug-ins in the Mozilla Firefox browser version 25, 26.
- Issue with application startup after updating databases and restarting the system.
- Issue opening https://www.google.com in Google Chrome (error establishing an SSL connection).
- Incorrect processing of the Trusted zone exclusions (appears after system restart).
- Issues loading webpages in Mozilla Firefox / Google Chrome / Internet Explorer after installing the application.

Verdict:

It's not the most interesting of updates, but Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 still offers excellent protection and needs to be on your security shortlist

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
