Does F-Secure IS 2012 included "Exploit Shield" in Browsing Protection function?


The release note of Internet Security Technology Preview R49.5 says "We have removed Browsing Protection's Exploit Shield. This functionality will be added in later releases." But I didn't see the "Exploit Shield" setting button in my IS 2012.


Is there "Exploit Shield" in IS 2012 current version?


Many thanks!

    This is a really good question. I miss this point too.

    look at common settings, if there is exploit shield engine, there is exploit shield. 


    Or, look at task manager, exploit shield has FSES or FSshield or something similar process(look at description of it, there's full name).


    But I guess there is no Exploit Shield



    edit to add:


    You can also check it through About in right-click menu of browsing protection

    the versions info ( this one is from CS9 - not sure where it is in 2012) should show these:


    F-Secure Browsing Protection/SW 1.10 build 5656
    F-Secure Browsing Protection/ES 1.10 build 1039


    and ES 1.10 is exploit shield...

    Here is the info. I can glean from my 2012 Security Suite. I don't see anything with that description, unless I need to click and tick somewhere else. I also didn't see anything in the F-Secure (x86) File. Chung-wei may have a good observation going here, or did F-Secure address that another way in the 2012 version?

    edit: I thought I would include this version from Process Explorer, in case that helps.

    As it seems there is no Exploit Shield, but also check about page of Online Safety.


    Still, as ISTP has no changes except some updated builds, I'm sure there is no Exploit Shield
