BlackFog now allows disabling forensic tools from third parties. BlackFog Privacy is the only product on the market which offers this functionality.
Installed on millions of computers globally this type of software is used to stop the theft of computers and provide forensic analysis of devices. These products are often used by companies to protect corporate computers. Unfortunately, they are also incorrectly activated on devices by flashing the BIOS of machines on the factory floor from major OEM manufacturers such as Lenovo. Most customers do not even realize the software is activated. There is a good technical white paper produced by Kaspersky who have analyzed the behavior of some of these tools in detail (Absolute Backdoor Revisited). This was also presented at the BlackHat conference in 2014.
BlackFog can automatically detect whether these tools are running in trial mode. With a full license you can also disable the software on your computer to prevent it from collecting data. Simply choose the relevant checkbox in the Network options and run a privacy scan to detect and disable the software on your device.
