F-Secure 2016 blocks downloads
during the last few day I set up my new PC (Clean installation of Windows 10 x64). For this I had to download the newest versions of some applications. Before doing this I installed the newest build of F-Secure IS (Should be the 2016 version).
Common Component Framework 2.44 build 135
CCF CUIF 10.04 build 275
CCF DAAS2 1.10 build 565
CCF Guts2 2.01 build 676
CCF Upstream 2.02 build 265
CCF Diagnostics 9.00 build 342
CCF Scanning 1.67 build 117.607
CCF Network 1.04 build 100
CCF Reputation 2.0 build 1337
On some sites F-Secure blocked the downloads of the files.
For example on:
www.getthunderbird.com (Thunderbird Emial Client)
www.acronis.de (also on .com) (Acronis Trueimage)
www.garmin.de (Garmin Express)
Download didn't start even waiting for some minutes.
It took me a while but then I finally found out that the F-Secure IS option that blocks downloading of malicious files even when firewall is disabled blocks these downloads. (Don't know the exact name in english because I'm using the german version of F-Secure IS). Disabling this option solved the problem for me (Downloads started immediately).
I never experienced any issues of this kind in the 2015 version so I gess it was introduced with the 2016 version.
Can anyone confirm this?
