  • Yes :) You can check in Sandboxie Control - Configure - Software Compatibility, that F-Secure is checked. Here's more info and also instructions how you can test it: http://community.f-secure.com/t5/Security/Security-products-that/m-p/36397 (in the spoiler section of the Sandboxie information)
  • Short answer: No conflict :) Longer explanation: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is meant to run along side another traditional Anti-Virus product like F-Secure, and is not intended to be the only product with real-time scanning(sometimes called on-access scanning). That's because Malwarebytes don't target certain malware like…
  • I can't say for sure, don't know if anyone can?! I believe the most important mitigation in EMET is ROP Caller check. EAF is perhaps not as important but still good(although both EAF and EAF+ have been bypassed by security people). I prefer EMET fully configured and enabled as I don't really know how good FS is at blocking…
  • I think it's only for EAF. The few programs that have EAF+ enabled also has EAF enabled. I use the program list and settings from EMET's Popular Software.xml and I have to exclude these files from F-Secure real-time scan: "c:\program files\mozilla firefox\firefox.exe" "c:\program files\mozilla firefox\plugin-container.exe"…
  • Same issue here. FS on my PC was upgraded 3 days ago but still nothing on the other one under the same license. Suggestions about the improved Product Timeline: - Harmful file name is missing. See EICAR test below (Harmful file removed) - Blocked web site info is missing info about what program and main URL that triggered…
  • I had similar problems with the optional windows update kb3048761 regarding an update for Desktop Window Manager (DWM.exe) released on April 21. It looked like XP and many desktop icons were missing. After I uninstalled it everything was OK again. You can't always trust these updates
  • Jack, I see you already received good help but I don't think anyone has informed you about this yet, to ease your mind: "When an F-Secure security product reports anything malicious on your computer it has already detected and stopped it, preventing it from causing any harm to your system or your data. Our security…
  • If you have a wireless modem/router and other devices connected to it it's possible your ISP mean it could be any device connected to it. Including the possibility of a neighbor who gained access to it. All devices connected to it will share the same public IP address. Zbot(Zeus) is a family of trojan malware. F-Secure…

  • 1) You could comment out the line of code that does the pop-up by adding a ' character at the beginning of that line. Or simply delete that line of code: MsgBox filename, vbExclamation 2) Out of bounds mean an item doesn't exist. Don't know what could be causing it but I'd check the log file to see what…
  • If this is a business version of F-Secure: There was an issue about a year ago where several computers on a company network started alerting about Nmap scans. They all had F-Secure Client Security. To make a long story short they finally contacted the ISP for the "attacking" IP-addresses because they were all coming from…
  • EMET 5.2 released: http://blogs.technet.com/b/srd/archive/2015/03/12/emet-5-2-is-available.aspx It seems you still have to exclude EMET protected programs from the F-Secure real-time(on-access) scan, or EMET will detect EAF mitigation. Let's hope the conflicts between EMET and F-Secure work better in the next EMET release…
  • I never said it was temporary. I said you shouldn't use ActiveX filtering by temporarily turn it off/on on a global basis(menu setting). Because then you might forget to turn it on again. I think you confuse it with other browsers similar features like Click-to-play. But with ActiveX filtering the purpose is to turn it off…
  • @baroque-quest wrote: Now maybe you see why I could not understand why excluding manual scans would do anything. The terminology used in the posts on this subject was ambiguous. In the thread Ukko referenced, everyone refered to scans and file exclusions without being specific. Yes, MBAE is much simpler. So far, MBAE is…
  • That should work! Read your post again and it's not for the manual scan you should make the exclusion. It's for the setting "Virus protection". Those two are completely different exclusion lists and the manual scan exclusions has nothing to do with EMET conflicts. I understand this can be confusing so maybe you're better…
  • As I said in the other thread: it's the exe file itself that can't start anymore after you've installed EMET, that you need to exclude to FS real-time scan. Example: if IE can't start you exclude iexplore.exe About Ghostery make sure you don't enable Ghostrank. Don't remember if it's enabled or not by default when you…
  • I should add that with EMET and EAF/EAF+ browsers run a little slower and might be very slow when you start them, especially Firefox. Some people don't like that so they disable EAF+ in EMET for the browser. If you feel EMET is too difficult to have and configure properly then MBAE might be a better option. The free…
  • The program that "crashes" and EMET reports about an EAF mitigation, that's the executable file you need to exclude. Example: if IE11 can't start you need to exclude iexplore.exe For Firefox you should exclude both firefox.exe and plugin-container.exe It's only the apps listed and protected in EMET under "Apps"(Application…
  • Forgot to add that WOT even works with Ixquick. WOT ratings(circles) to the right of each link: Here's an example from Bing where you also get F-Secure ratings: Why have only one rating when you can have two, especially when the second is based on user experiences so the ratings can be very different 
  • I can't answer about that specific site but here's a few comments and suggestions: No anti-virus/malware product can detect all malware and all bad sites. A couple of things that probably not that many know about: You shouldn't trust web site scans or web protection. Dynamic web pages are used by the bad guys to fool AV…
  • Some useful information hopefully: Logging in to the web interface of Younited and uploading only one file results in even more errors. Nothing fills my event logs with more errors than this community and Younited. Something must be wrong on the server side. But no errors with SAS!
  • Don't think that many home users uses Outlook these days, but I do every day and haven't noticed anything. But I'm not an average user cause I've disabled all Add-ins.
  • Haven't heard of any compatibility issues other than for Windows 8.1 64-bit, which might be solved by setting compatibility mode to Windows 7 or 8 for the program. It's a portable program with all dependencies included in the exe file (26 MB). No detections on Virustotal so far. Latest Virustotal report for Detekt 1.6…
  • There's a thread here: Security products that complement F-Secure AV/IS If you scroll down to @Blackcat post you'll find EXE Radar Pro. But please read my post too Don't know about Voodooshield but as a general advice try searching or asking at http://www.wilderssecurity.com/ That's the number one site for security IMO.…
  • One of the latest Windows Updates reminded me of this issue. I still get lots of Schannel errors from logging in on this site, so I guess nothing's changed. As mentioned before logging in to SAS doesn't create these errors.
  • If you still have that file, go to the SAS (Sample Analysis System) page again. But first use the "signup" link to the left. After you've signed in and you click Submit a new sample, note this text at the bottom: "If you need to contact our Response Team, include your question or incident details in the "Message" field.…
  • These threads (from the business community) might help: Very high CPU usage for the process FSSM32.exe at startup (high memory usage likely also means high CPU usage) Description of services/processes
  • @Ville Thanks for explaining. The problem however is that no user can know this until they experience it themselves. It's good that it now takes 3 close attempts, but previously it required only one, and how would a user know that closing the window will allow the program to run..... Personally I would prefer that the…
  • That is very good news, thank you @Kimmo And also for describing the exclude process to keep DeepGuard injections for all other files. That's exactly what I wanted to know. Tested & approved As I mentioned before, in EMET 5.1 only EAF seem to be the problem. In 5.0 StackPivot was also a problem but I don't know if the…
  • Yes, I'm sure. I did one more test, after a reboot, and DeepGuard prompted me 3 times. I clicked the X to close it every time. After the 3rd time the program was launched and successfully downloaded files from the Internet I never allowed the program It's not in the monitored applications list If you close all DeepGuard…
