The two main use-cases of the Rescue-CD are:
- The computer no longer starts, as the operating system has been corrupted by malware. In this case you can use the Rescue-CD to scan the computer and quarantine the malware. This may allow the operating system to start properly again.
- If you suspect that your security software has been compromised by malware. You can use the Rescue CD to check this, as it is incorruptible and it is independent of the operating system.
The F-Secure Rescue-CD is normally shipped on the same CD as other F-Secure Windows products, such as Internet Security 2007. It allows the user to boot into a slimmed-down Linux system, from where they can scan using our Linux malware scanner — using the same technology that serves as the basis for our Linux Server and Client Security products.
Technically, the 2.00 version of Rescue-CD is a Knoppix-based Linux distribution with our command-line malware scanner pre-installed, slimmed down to only 80 MB. Upon booting from the CD, the user will be presented with a text-mode menu-based interface to the malware scanner, from where they can scan their computer for malware after the Rescue-CD has downloaded the latest malware databases from the Internet. The user can also access a normal Linux shell prompt to examine and repair a broken system.
