Security Edit

A vulnerability monitor is

designed to prevent modification or access to particularly sensitive parts of the system; consequently, the monitors may block an attack on those parts. This requires considerable information about “normal” system use because PC viruses typically take advantage of system vulnerabilities and do not circumvent any security features. This type of software also requires decisions from the user about permitted operations.[1]
