    Release 18.2 beta 1 (4.70.352):

    New features:

    • Tamper protection prevents user or external software from disabling SAFE processes, changing the installation folder content or editing relevant values in registry. It is turned off by default and can be enabled in Settings. Please note: help has not been updated yet.
    • People view can now be used to manage people and devices directly in the client user interface instead of logging into My FS Protection in a browser.

    Known issues:

    • Unable to release license from the product(AP-14972/PBL-8929). Fix will come a bit later to the backend side (no need to wait for the next Beta).

    Fixed issues:

    • Switch User button is clickable after releasing license (PBL-8859)
    • Hang when logging in through person view (PBL-8852)
    • After logging out and in, the subscription state changes to "expiring soon" if it is continuous (PBL-8848)

    "Tamper protection ..." - I was really looking forward to this feature. Many thanks to the developers! I think the defense is even more secure now. :)

    Hello,

    Sorry for this comment.

    I am not sure if there is any connection with fs protection. But just as a thought and ask about the experience of other users.

    My laptop with Windows 10 system has no huge changes. However, there are some. For example, some Windows own updates, some drivers updates, a try to use Microsoft Windows Game Mode and nothing more out of the common state. Also, there was F-Secure Ultralight Core (64-bit) update. Partially, the most 'recent' to date after which something triggered BSODs.

    So, the trouble is: from 20.11.2021 to 25.11.2021 - I experienced three BSODs. All of them were after system launch and some minutes of use it like browsing (but only today I saw the BSOD, and not the already rebooted system) with no much strange activities. Basically, two (?) opened browsers and trying to use them (switch tabs) or "background" loading for the first two occurrences.

    CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED (0x000000ef (0xffffc28e1d3950c0....), there are dumps - but I did not manage to check anything with them.

    Has anyone seen anything like that recently? I just did not remember any of such BSOD before with that system.

    @Ukko Windows bluescreen with CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED happens because some critical user-mode process died. I believe session manager and service manager are these kind of processes. I hit this problem often around 2007 when developing DeepGuard user-mode hooking and if there was a bug, it took down one of these processes, resulting in bluescreen.

    So, it could be a bug in DeepGuard or it could be a bug in Windows itself. We need a bit more data to investigate.

    Hi Ukko,

    Thanks for the detailed explanation, could you please create a bug ticket with fsdiag? Please change the log level to debug beforehand.

    Best Wishes, Ivan.
