Smooth

Did notice from the messages "Turn virus protection on" and FS updated to 17.6 beta

I noticed that the new version, each time I start the "opera" browser, the banking protection starts with Opera. Afterwards everything works as it should be.Smiley Wink

The only thing I noticed is that the F-Secure icon that I usually have visible in my task tray defaulted back to hidden and I had to put it back. Other than that, everything is smooth so far! :)

Re: FS Protection PC 17.6 releases

I like all recent FS Protection beta updates.

 

Only three(?) things bother me; and that is unclear for me (yet):

--  Fresh detection and F-Secure website are not synchronized. Or redirect from "More information" is not accurate (and maybe it was with previous engine too); but I do able to suspect that with fresh detection name - trouble is more visible.

For example, 'More information' about ""PotentialRisk.PUA/CryptoMiner.Gen"" detection lead to next page: Toolbar:W32/MyGlobalSearch ; What is unrelated completely (maybe).

-- Time to time (at least, I met it two or three times) - some items became undetectable. Mainly it was about zipped files with multiple (not a lot) items. Where only "packed" items are detected as malicious or harmful. During troublestate - such items were not detected by FS Protection (while some others were detected still). But, then, after hours or day - detections are back for these items too.

-- Uncategorized state of some domains, subdomains or IPs. Became eventually unexpected (even with "Security Cloud: Connected"). Based on some different situations.

 

Sorry for strange feedback.

 

Thanks!

Hello,

 

Thanks for your response. Originally, I planned to do so.

 

With second point (temporary dropped detection) - I just trying to provoke/get it else one time. But I created fsdiag at the time of latest situation (and it is still saved - five days old; thus, maybe I will do report after some doublechecks).

 

With third point (uncategorized/unrared websites) - I will try to contact F-Secure Labs via F-Secure SAS at first. I did not that (yet one time) - just because it was strange situation: some of websites start be uncategorized (even it was rated before and some of them were transferred to F-Secure Labs by me before) per 'one hit' (pack of websites);

In addition, as example, I transferred one of these URLs - it was rated back after some days... but then (and currently still) after some days uncategorized back (just during two weeks). Today - another well-known domain is switched to uncategorized state.

While "Security Cloud" with "Connected"-state - anyway - I am unsure about reason (what if it is local trouble). So, I delayed transfer to F-Secure SAS based on this.

 

With second point - I will try to collect more examples and will try to create report.

Noted example is about detection which previous F-Secure engine does not detect at all (at least, during my try to research it).

 

Thanks!

Hello,

 

Fresh "About" from beta 2 is beauty and with an interesting view! Only three points maybe with a strange state (most likely it is temporary):

-> window  opens with a delay (more than before) a little be. And the first try to open the window was with quite noticeable delay.

-> too resizable. at least, I do not feel if too minimized view is suitable for something. But maximized view and just ability to resize is pretty!

-> title (left top corner) picture logo is too pixeled probably. // added: logo on taskbar is also too pixeled for that window (at least, as common feelings and compared to other windows)

 

Thanks for the release!
