New beta version 23.9.3301
« on: September 07, 2023, 08:33:14 PM »
Hi everyone,

there is a new beta version ready - 23.9.3301 (build 23.9.8473).

What's new
  • end of support for old type of virus definitions (virus pattern signature) - more info here:
  • webcam shield extended by microphone protection for MS Windows 10 and higher (lower layer of the implementation is done - thus code change in this build too; finishing user interface; will be available in the following two weeks or even sooner) - so basically if there is misuse of the microphone detected, webcam detection dialog is shown (or based on the mode used in its configuration Smart/Strict/Disabled)
  • display number of devices in use for your subscription
  • extended logging for the icarus type of setup (installer)
  • updated cURL and OpenSSL libraries to address some performance improvements and vulnerability fixes used in our Webshield, MailShield and Network Inspector

What was fixed
  • kernel crash in sandbox driver

Known issues
  • not respected default browser setting if Avast Secure Browser installed for Bank Mode (Avast Secure Browser is opened no matter the system default settings)
  • incomplete paths for some of the applications added to Do not disturb component (problems with their execution from Antivirus directly, not showing full path in the settings, etc.)
  • Windows Security icon and process not started properly
  • Do not disturb mode can't handle notifications from MS Teams/Skype
  • Webcam Shield does not work once added as a component without performing computer restart (valid for icarus type of setup only)
  • some compatibility issuses with MS smart app control mode for Windows 11
