AVAST 2015 Release Candidate 1 (10.0.2202)
« on: October 10, 2014, 07:41:11 PM »
Hi all,
I'm excited to inform you about AVAST 2015 Release Candidate 1 (build number 10.0.2202).

In AVAST 2015 Release Candidate 1 you can find mainly stability a performance improvements:
  • Added support for none SSE2 machines
  • IE plugin - stability
  • Changed program name to Avast
  • Browser Cleanup - Chrome 38 support
  • And some general performance and stability improvements

Known issues?
- we are not aware of them, find and report to us ;)

We are really curious about your feedback on our new feature - Home Network Security. How many of you have a default or weak password on your router?


Features already introduced in previous AVAST 2015 betas:

• GrimeFighter Free
GrimeFighter will offer free cleaning of junk files and tuning of system settings. These tasks are performed by our Zilch and Torque minions. Other minion functions remain as paid-for features.

• HTTPS scanning
Now, we are able to detect and decrypt TLS/SSL protected traffic in our Web-content filtering component. We are using our own generated certificates that are added into the Root Certificate store in Windows and also into major browsers. This feature will protect you against viruses coming through HTTPs traffic as well as adding compatibility for SPDY+HTTPS/ HTTP 2.0 traffic. You can tune/disable this feature in the settings section.

• Home Network Security
Scan your home network for vulnerabilities (wifi status, connected devices, router settings, factory passwords, etc.). This is quite a new approach as we are trying to discover potential problems not isolated on the particular device only, but in the entire network of devices you use or connect to the Internet from.

• SecureDNS (this feature is active in the paid versions only)
We are introducing a new provider which guards against unprotected DNS/DNS hijack on a router/client (including unsecured networks, public ones, etc.).

• Smart Scan
Integrated all on demand scans into one (Antivirus, Software updates, Home Network, GrimeFighter). One scan, different results and recommendations.

• AVAST NG
A hardware based virtualization solution capable of running each Windows process in standalone safe virtualized environment (VM) and fully integrated to your desktop. Each process is executed in its own instance of VM, which means totally isolated from your other applications. This feature is now powering the Avast DeepScreen, resulting in better detection. The technology will also eventually power the Sandbox and SafeZone components (although it does not now).

Note: In this beta build, not all detections are 100% operable yet, so I wouldn't recommend using the new DeepScreen for detection testing for now. It will be 100% operable in the next couple of weeks - we will certainly let you know when is the good time to start testing with your malware collections :).

Note 2: Avast NG can be installed only on physical machine, does not work in VM. It requires HW virtualization enabled.

• New Support System
Easy contact for paid users to submit a ticket with all info included automatically. Improved knowledge base for free users. Help is completely online and is more up to date.

• General bugfixing
This covers a lot of stability & performance changes in all components (but the main focus was traditionally on the network & engine components).

We would like to ask for your feedback, what is not working, what is your experience, whether do you see any performance problems,
connectivity problems, etc. There is a lot of new low-level functionality with an impact to the whole system, so we need your feedback
to tune everything for the final release. Thanks a lot!

enjoy!

Will test if the DNS issues are still there on my system.

Will Dyna-Gen be in at some point? Or is it postponed?

I think that has something to do with GrimeFighter.

I think its just unneccessary.

Updating from beta 3 UI - Program Update.

EDIT:
Checking on some prior problems with Hardened Mode - Aggressive:
Previously when the hardened mode threw up an alert, clicking the Add to exclusion, etc. failed to add it to the Global Exceptions - Hardened Mode. I have yet to see if that has been resolved.

I'm not confident it has, as manually adding a full file path to the Hardened Mode exclusions, isn't saved. If you OK your way out of the exclusions and come back in the entry isn't there.

Try a couple reboots. If that does not help run a Avast repair :)
