Immunet 6.2 option "ask me" problem

Recommended Posts

From update 6.2 even if enabled the 2 options "quarantine ask me", no window is shown and any detected file is automatically quarantined, without asking, without warning, without showing a warning window.

Let me look into this, and see if I can replicate it.

what OS are you using?

 Was this an upgraded from another version of Immunet or a fresh install of 6.2?

@Wookiee, this is the problem I detailed in my response to the post "Immunet 6.2.0.10768 errors" on September 13th. (See Immunet 6.2.0.10768 Errors By Cipollino). In that post, I list three different ways of reproducing this bug.

In short, at some point, Immunet 6.2 stops asking you, and just silently quarantines detections - despite ensuring "Ask me" is selected in the preferences. Deselecting and reselecting doesn't work - once it stops asking you, it stops for good.

I must stress that quarantine still happens - so users are still protected from malware. It is, however, still (in my opinion) a dangerous situation, but for different reasons (i.e. because false-positives can and do happen).

Yes, the bug was submitted to dev and I can reproduce it.

Great! I had been worried my original post was waaaay too long so you and the devs wouldn't have time to read it. I just tried to give you all the info I could to help you test/diagnose it on your machines.
