Editor's review

This is a tool to prevent spoofing and ARP poisoning and thereby to keep you secure.

Stop Cut is a small but effective utility that can put an end to spoofing attempts and ARP poisoning by malicious third parties. Just an anti-virus or the firewall cannot provide all the protection that you need. External accesses to your computer need to be completely prevented to really protect information inside your machine. You need some program that can prevent intrusions from outside your network environment. Stop Cut shields your machine when someone tries to copy the MAC address of the server, gateway or of your personal computer. When these addresses could be copied, these third parties will be able to capture the information you send and receive. It also targets ARP spoofing attempts. It will stop network scanners that intercept your LAN data traffic. This works in the background and operates from the system tray.

This utility secures the ARP table on your machine so that no third party programs can get access to it over the network. That way, these entities will not be able to spoof MAC address or the IP address and intercept communication packets meant for your node. These spoofing entities then lose any control that could have been asserted. The interface to the program could not have been simpler. It consists to just two buttons that start and stop the application. No user should face any challenge using this. This is an easy to install tool and is very good if you were looking for additional security beyond an anti-virus and a firewall.

Publisher's description

Protecting the information stored onto a computer and keeping private things confidential requires some dedicated utilities that are not limited to antivirus or firewall programs. For example, securing an internet or network connection and preventing external intrusions can be achieved by means of a small but efficient tool like StopCut.
Essentially a system tray application which runs in the background, this particular software solution targets ARP spoofing attacks and network scanners that try to intercept or stop the data traffic on your LAN.
Basically, StopCut acts like a shield for situations like that when someone tries to spoof or copy the MAC address of the server, gateway or of your personal computer in order to capture the information you send and receive.
This utility is also efficacious against third-party programs that scan the LAN and try to get IP and MAC addresses in order to allow someone to access remotely a workstation or control the entire network traffic.
What StopCut can do is secure the ARP tables on the system it is deployed on and thus render useless any attempt of spoofing or flooding them. These methods are used by hackers to gain access to the data packets exchanged over the LAN by redirecting the traffic to their PC or to one that they control.
Apart from the fact that the installation procedure is standard and takes very few time, the interface of StopCut can be characterized as simplistic since it only hosts two buttons, one for starting and the other for stopping the application.
