FS Protection PC Release 215

New Features:

Browsing Protection:

  • Banking Protection uses referer history to allow returning to unrated web store after payment transaction. This requires the transaction flow to have the referer info set, though, so it will not solve all unrated web store problems. (PBL-3070)

Fixed issues:

Common:

  • Event history links don't work always
  • Some events are not updated when they should
  • No flyer about product update
  • Privacy policy link in Common Settings leads to empty help page
  • Update server address in Common Settings has "http://" prefix

Antivirus:

  • Riskware flyer button text wrong (PBL-3471)
  • Notification details icon is too big compared to main UI (PBL-3469)
  • Application allowed flyer broken (PBL-3455)
  • OAS Harmful File/Application blocked events have no details (PBL-3454)
  • OAS UA removed/restart required event has wrong text (PBL-3452)
  • Maybe space after "location/reason" keywords of Toasts (SAFE_BUG-02358, PBL-3450)
  • About box contains htmlgui resources twice (PBL-3445)
  • DeepGuard (also ransomware) event empty (PBL-3433)
  • "Protection is very old" missing flyer (PBL-3432)
  • "Malfunction" event missing (PBL-3429)
  • "Malfunction flyer missing (PBL-3428)
  • "Protection is not up to date" event missing (PBL-3427)
  • "Manual virus scan could not handle some harmful items" event missing (PBL-3424)
  • Toast do not use "location/reason" keywords (SAFE-BUG-02343, PBL-3409)
  • Toast with not fully visible string (SAFE-BUG-02342, PBL-3407)
  • Main GUI wording unclear when virus protection disabled (PBL-3335)

Browsing Protection:

  • Bing search result icon issues with localized Bing (PBL-3449, SAFE_BUG-02356)

All seems fine.  Can't really find anything to comment on.

 

Although, seeing as we had a winter theme earlier, how about a summery theme now?

捕获.PNGSeems still have some problems in the event history area, there are somethings that are not shown as in the picture above.

That's probably malware detection localizations that are missing.

Upgrade went as smooth as ever.

 

Still - the Allow button is missing in DeepGuard detections. Is it explicitly configured like that?

Hello,

Spoiler

Looks like that with one of my systems (but it is only one system where I check situation yet) after three potential 'visible' system changes like:

-> installed recent monthly Windows Update;

-> installed CCF 3.15.225;

-> installed Antivirus 17.215.129;

with restart system after each event.

Start be next potential trouble:

 

>>> Received toast from FS Protection (for example, soon time limits; scheduled scan is start; detected malicious item is blocked) and it is visible.

>>> Toast is not read (system is idle, for example).

>>> System (Windows 10) with visible count of missed notifications (Notification area logo). For example, three items or one item.

>>> Choose such place to look what is it (which one toast/event) -> and there is empty screen (no fresh notifications).

 

Does it only my local experience or some of noted changes are valid for all (as reason for such situation with inability to look for 'missed' toasts)?

// later edited: sounds that situation (from spoiler) is pinned to something with my system. because situation is valid for system toasts too. Sorry for reply.

// one more update: later I found that there was activated (ON) Windows Defender with FS Protection at one time. Because I received a toast about Windows Defender own Protected Folders feature (which was introduced with recent system update and was ON as default) during opening scan log report by FS Protection. I decided to look for Windows 10 Security Center and found that Windows Defender is enabled/activated with all features. I decided to restart system else one time -> and all previous toasts are back to notification area (and was visible with limitation of twenty ones for each day/process).  Both system and FS Protection 'missed/unread' toasts.

 

Thanks!

There seems to be serious memory leak. See my 

 
 
Happens when I start uploading large files to Jottacloud. Memory usage is going up till 95% (I got 12GB of RAM) and uploading fails. With FS Protection disabled, everything is fine.

Hello

this is due to F-S annalyzing files on the fly.

Re: FS Protection PC Release 215

It's one possibility, but I've never had such experience before. So there must be something bugged in FS.

Is there any other anti malware tool in the background ?
