NEW: Beta version released - 2016.12.1.2269
« on: June 11, 2016, 01:19:10 PM »
Hi all,

new beta version is live: 2016.12.1.2269
As we are getting closer to release, please expect beta builds to come with higher frequency and shorter changelogs.

Changes:

+ New implementation of Web Shield will be soon turned on, please report any issues with browsing or with downloads
+ Fixed issues with displaing specific fonts in the UI
+ Fixed file locking in CyberCapture
+ Fixed service crashes on non-updated Windows 8.1
+ Updated translations

Known issues:

- Registration to the Windows security center may still have some issues.

Download links as usual or just update your current beta.

Enjoy,
Petr

Looks like youre working your butts off to get this working and released :)

But please scan unknown files from wherever they are coming not internet only there are much more attack vectors.

Also anything about the HIPS finally getting working and Ransomware porotection feature that was mentioned a while ago?

Not very clear what you are asking - If you mean the Number of definitions, them you should have seen this before it happens a couple of times a year.

It is called optimisation of the definitions, signatures can detect multiple variants of a virus. Presumably this optimisation could also speed up virus scanning.

I haven't seen this yet on my 11.2.2262 systems shows massive quantity.

Can I finally get an answer what the hell is going on with the HIPS "sensitivity" setting? It totally locked system up till 2268 and I'm still afraid to try it in 2269. No mentions under known issues is even more worrying...

EDIT:
Also, why is CyberCapture designed to only catch unknown files if they originate from web? What about USB drives? What about CD's and DVD's? What about new unknown files that get generated locally by unverified application?

I guess they would first see it in the beta channel, when you install the beta it is possible start with the new optimised database. We will just have to wait and see.

I can't see 1.8 million+ signatures just disappearing if there wasn't a reason.

They've done this before. They can see statistics based on detection. And if some signature hasn't generated a hit for years, they'll remove it from definitions into the cloud detection. You're still protected, just through different means.

Can you screenshot the "more details" window as well. Also, have you received results already? I'd like to see how verdict is given to the user as well.
