FS Protection PC 17.5 releases

Release 17.5 beta 8 (4.00.5071):

Fixed Issues:

  • Product now showing events in Event history as expected

 

Edit: Sorry for the confusion. We decided to change the versioning scheme for fs protection Windows beta releases. We are dropping the running number (224) and switching to "major.minor beta build". This way it's easier for also you to track for which production release this is aimed for. Now you can tell that this is a beta build aimed for F-Secure SAFE 17.5 production release. When that is finalized, the beta build will be fs protection 17.6 beta 1.

    Hello, can I use FS Protection on my main system?
  • VilleVille Posts: 483

    Hi @Pria7x

     

    FS Protection is beta quality. The support level compared to paid product is a bit different. Typically we only fix issues during working hours and not at all during weekends. Having said that, it has been very stable for a long time.

     

    Personally I use FS Protection on my work laptop and at home on my gaming rig.

     

    You have to decide if you want to accept these limitations on your main system.

    Personally I have had no problems or issues with the support level.

    My concern was that if I used beta on a production PC or one for commercial use and ti starts doing an update when I need to complete something.

    However, recently the updates have been so smooth that it is not an issue.

    Hello,

    Release 17.5 beta 9 (4.00.5447):

    Thanks for the release!

     

     

    But does it normal that pumpkin nailed the window of Main UI to one size? Just because this pumpkin is an inedible pumpkin?

  • yeoldfartyeoldfart Posts: 506

    hello Ukko

    what do you mean with pumpkin ?

    Hello,

     

    Vegetable, usually.

    But currently my system is under pressure of circumstances; and perhaps it is not related to vegetables.

    Hi @Ukko

     

    We disabled resizing for main UI because it didn't bring much benefit and was causing rendering issues with certain controls. It was missing from release notes, sorry about that.

  • Updated and working perfectly well here, is it my impression or the response of the interface got faster? Mainly at the time of clicking the icon (opens quickly)

  • martinkmartink Posts: 336

    My Windows messed itself again to a point where no recovery option did any good.

    Restored the two week old backup.

    FS TP upgraded again smoothly.

    Just gave notices

    No Virus Protection, then

    Updating

    Sorry but we haven't done anything related to the speed of UI opening.

    Hello,

     

    Thanks for explanation!

     

    Resizing for main UI was useful to me when I tried to use FS Protection under VM (under my laptop 15.6") as not full-sized VM window; In general, based on reasons which discussed (as example) there: https://community.f-secure.com/t5/F-Secure-SAFE/F-S-IS-image-too-large-in-low/m-p/104668


     And sorry for one else ask (to anyone):

    Release 17.5 beta 9 (4.00.5447):
    New features:
    Confirmation dialogs for allowing websites or applications were changed to Windows native style

    Does it something about UAC type (as internal changes to something)? Or it is visible for users?

     

    I did not find where is "confirmation dialogs for allowing websites" or what is it (for except UAC).

    And I am not sure how to check it with applications (I do suspect that it is about ability to allow PUA?! or to restore from Quarantine?).


    And as another feedback (but I did not try to check it enough well; and my experience is only based on just one random situation):

    - does it possible that with current design of uninstallation: if there is already another installation/uninstallation (.msi) in work -> after try to launch FS Protection uninstallation (by "Uninstall"-button under related dialog) - there is no visible output that "another un/installation in process" as with common situations?

     

    Thanks!

  • VilleVille Posts: 483

    Hi @Ukko

     

    Thanks for the feedback about resizing. We will definitely look into it again in future.

     

    The confirmation dialog changes were only about the dialog frame (how it looks). Functionality was not changed.

    Hello,

     

    Thanks for beauty release with statistics.

    decided to delete my reply.

    Thanks!

  • Capricorn - new engine or still Bitdefender?

     

    Otherwise smooth upgrade - no issues.

    Aquarius has been replaced with our new Capricorn engine. Capricorn is our new cloud-hybrid file and URL analysis service for F-Secure's endpoint products — for all platforms.

     Is that also in ULAV

     

    Capture.JPG

  • @Villethat's cool to hear! Hope it boosts the protection even further.


    Seems it contains Avira databases (many files have Avira signature).

    I noticed that now the FS installation folder is ~400MB in size, as opposed to over 1 GB previously (with Bitdefender sigs). That's good!

     

    Maybe a bit lighter too, we'll see.

    martinkUkkoFaybert
  • Wow! When will F-Secure Safe rely on this new engine? For what I understand it is only in beta version, correct?
    Faybert
  • VilleVille Posts: 483

    Hi, @Palmeiras

     

    The change takes place gradually from early Q4/2018 onwards. We aim to be finished early in H1/2019.

    Hello,

     

    My FS Protection TP215(?) is upgraded to fs protection 17.5 beta 11.

    I was not near laptop during upgrade - but sounds that it was smoothly.

    Previous recent events-list is cleared (?) and re-placed by freshly one.

    Websites exceptions (allow and deny list) are saved. And all looks OK with installation.

    just as feedback.


    Another feedback is about Capricorn (only my own feelings):

    -- no longer noticeable 'database-update' timeframes with performance impact;

    -- less size for 'signature'-files; in addition, more speedy installation (for updates and fs protection installation itself) and reduced network bandwidth(?);

    -- likely good detection rate around 99,99% (compared to previous Aquarius rate around 99,99999..%).

    But I think that detection rate is possible to claim as 95% against all threats. What is pretty good for Home Users (in my opinion) and pretty enough.

    Not sure about business environments (where too freshly and too speedy reaction is critical).

    -- I am not sure - but looks like that (first) scanning took more time than with Aquarius (with all tweaks like scan inside archives and all file-types). Re-scan is maybe more brief.


    Another feedback is about browsing. After some changes(?) and I am not sure that it is pinned to fs protection - time to time my browser's tabs are freezing and ?! some further impact. Does anyone with such experience about too (in case, if trouble is pinned to Capricorn or any other changes with fs protection)?

     

    Thanks!
