    Hello all, We are happy to announce a new release of Immunet: Version 7.0.0! This latest version of Immunet provides the same great protection against malware and viruses as before, but also includes Credo and AMSI. Credo is a ML engine that allows endpoint connector to extract feature print of a PE file and send to the cloud to see whether the file is malware or not. ScriptID engine allows AMP connector to analyze scripts prior to execution. It is based on the Windows Antimalware Scan Interface (AMSI). In 7.0.0 version of connector only PowerShell scripts are analyzed. You can get the new installer here. https://download.immunet.com/binaries/immunet/bin/ImmunetSetup.exe If you are running an older version of Immunet, you should be able to upgrade via the 'Update Now' button in the UI. If you don't see the update in your UI we recommend uninstalling Immunet and reinstalling the version downloaded from http://www.immunet.com/index Changes in 7.0.0 Improvements and updates: New Credo engine New ScriptID engine for AMSI Query improvements in Immunet Protect driver Improvement in preforming Immunet registration Improvements in Connectivity test tool Curl version update ImmunetSCMS service now handle crash reporting Driver updates to support No Reboot upgrades New certificate for the ELAM driver Improvements on the Malicious Activity Protection (MAP) to reduce false positive Fixes: Stability Improvements in the Immunet Protect driver Stability Improvements in the SPP Stability Improvement on Immunet Protect shutdown Stability Improvements in the Exploit prevention

    Hi 4tygrit i've the same update problem with the main.cvd file in a other post. To update immunet i've download ClamAV Portable (doant forget to get Updates in ClamAV). Stop the Immunet Service Delete in "C:\Program Files\Immunet\clamav\0.1......" the file main.cvd and daily.cvd copy the main.cld and daily.cvd files from "...\PortableApps\ClamWinPortable\Data\db" to "C:\Program Files\Immunet\clamav\0.1......" Start the Immunet Service again

    I'd like to report that the 7.2.8 upgrade through the UI took place with no problems. No reboot necessary! Great job on that guys! I did have to create a new allow rule with my firewall for sfc.exe but that's not uncommon behavior when a new build is installed. Some impressive changes have been made! A personal thanks to nirmeshptl for including a detailed change log with this announcement! Something I've been suggesting in the past when a new build is publicly rolled out. Best wishes, Ritchie...

    Interesting video you uploaded Valnat! Thanks for sharing. As the video demonstrates Immunet has some suburb efficacy! Much better than Microsoft's Defender AV! As you mentioned Immunet can be used as a stand-alone AV solution but it is recommended you use the ClamAV module if used in that manner. If Immunet is used as a companion AV to another compatible "paid product" it's best if the ClamAV module and updates for it remain disabled. This will reduce the amount of system resources being used. Also, don't forget to create exclusion rules for the Program Files folders for both AV's. This can go a long way in avoiding possible conflicts between the two AV's. Regards, Ritchie... P.S. I moved this topic to the General forum section since that's a better place for it.

    Hello Damokles and thank you for your interest in Immunet, Not sure what you mean by making a complete list. Immunet originally was strictly just a cloud based AV when it was first introduced. The draw back to that was Immunet had to have a constant internet connection for cloud based lookups during normal operation & during a scan. Also there was no off-line scanning capabilities. After the introduction of the open-sourced signature based ClamAV into the program that not only added an additional layer of off-line protection but also added the ability to run scans even if no internet connection is present as it works as a traditional downloaded malware definition signature based AV. You can use just the scalable multi-threaded ClamAV scripting code http://www.clamav.net/ as an automatic or on-demand AV scanner & a email gateway scanner for instance. ClamAV does not have a UI in the traditional sense since everything is handled through Command Line scripts. Of course Immunet provides a traditional UI to users without the need for advanced technical skills to configure or use since ClamAV's scripts are integrated into Immunet's program code via the ClamAV module. Immunet can be used as a "stand-alone" AV solution. If used in this manner it is recommended that the ClamAV module & updates for it be enabled. If Immunet is used as a companion AV to a compatible paid product it is recommended that the ClamAV module remain disabled. This improves the amount of system resources being used. Immunet will work with Defender. Using them both should provide good malware protection for the average user. In fact Immunet has, by default, an exclusion for Defender for improved compatibility. If using Immunet with Defender I would consider "not disabling" the ClamAV module for the reasons described below. Adding an exclusion/exception rule to Defender for Immunet's Program Files folder is also very highly recommended. That way they recognize each other as safe programs and goes a long way in avoiding possible future conflicts. If I "had to choose" one or the other I would definitely go with Immunet over Defender. Microsoft even admits that Defender is meant for users that don't have or don't want to use a different AV solution. Although some improvements have been made with newer builds Defender still is not a stellar anti-malware program as it provides basic protection. The Plus version of Immunet is no longer available. Immunet Protect Free is just like the name implies, it's totally free for individual/home or private network use and for "non-profit" charitable or educational organizations! Immunet is not licensed for any "for profit" business, service, organization or product. If it's found that Immunet is being used in such a manner no support will be offered. This information is included in the End User License Agreement (EULA) when first installing Immunet. We recommend that any for-profit entities use Immunet's paid Enterprise version called AMP for Endpoints. https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/security/fireamp-endpoints/datasheet-c78-733181.html I hope this answers your questions. Regards, Ritchie...

    Hello all, We are happy to announce a new release of Immunet: Version 7.0.2! This latest version of Immunet provides the same great protection against malware and viruses as before, but also includes NoReboot upgrade beta. The Immunet Windows Connector often requires a reboot to complete the upgrade. This can be problematic for end users who have to time reboots, if they are in middle of critical updates or working on some important project, in order to upgrade the Connector, raising barriers to upgrading more regularly. This feature is to remove the requirement for reboots when upgrading the Windows Connector for good. Expected upgrade behaviour for Immunet users: * Upgrades from Connector versions < 7.0.0 to 7.0.0+ require a reboot to complete * Upgrades from Connector versions 7.0.0+ to any higher version do not require a reboot to complete Looking forward for your participation and help in cases of upgrade reboot failures issues, if encountered any. We would appreciate if you can reach out to us via support forum with Support logs as soon as you see upgrade failing or upgrade asking for reboot on upgrade. You can get the new installer here. https://download.immunet.com/binaries/immunet/bin/ImmunetSetup.exe If you are running an older version of Immunet, you should be able to upgrade via the 'Update Now' button in the UI. If you don't see the update in your UI we recommend uninstalling Immunet and reinstalling the version downloaded from http://www.immunet.com/index Changes in 7.0.2 Improvements and updates: No Reboot upgrades No Reboot uninstalls New kernel logs for Connector upgrades and uninstalls Installer improvements to handle NoReboot upgrades and uninstall Fixes: Stability Improvements in the Immunet SelfProtect driver Fixed reference leak in asynchronous kernel exclusions Stability Improvements on Immunet Protect driver

    Hi all, The newest 6.3.0.10988 build of Immunet has a new running process called cscm. Microsoft made some improvements as to how antivirus solutions can better protect their software from unauthorized intrusion. It's a fact that some malware has the capacity to disable the installed AV, usually through unauthorized code-injection methods. This added security protocol will make it much harder for malware to disable Immunet. For anyone that wants to read this Windows Dev Center article (thanks Wookiee) regarding this added security protocol click on this link. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/services/protecting-anti-malware-services- Regards, Ritchie...

    Yup, this is the right place for your questions. Sorry, Immunet doesn't offer spam or phishing protection, Interestingly , older versions of Immunet could scan local Outlook.pst email databases for malicious email attachments, but we shelved this feature for a couple reasons: 1) the average user moved to cloud email services (gmail, Hotmail, outlook.com / etc), most of which provide absolutely minimal span and phishing protection, making local emal scanning redundant 2) Microsoft changed their outlook.pst format and libraries a couple times resulting in Immunet failing to quarantine just the attachment from within the outlook.pst database file; and instead quarantined the entire email database.

    Ritchie, As soon and you mentioned AMP I fully remembered that I selected YES on both of those systems. I uninstalled Immunet and selected NO, rebooted and all is good now!! I agree that I will stay with AMP, but this is a GREAT free product for home users. Grant

    I've sent it to Clam so guess we'll see what they say. Thanks for your help!

    I would venture to guess that the ClamAV module is scanning files at the same time as they're being created by Visual Studio. Try creating a custom Immunet Exclusion rule for Visual Studio's entire Program Files folder in Settings. Then turn ClamAV back on, restart your computer and see if the same behavior persists. You can also directly contact the ClamAV developers to inform them of this issue if you wish. https://www.clamav.net/contact Best wishes, Ritchie...

    @gogos888 Thanks for pointing out the issue. As @ritchie explained above, its just a stats issue on our backend side. Immunet is still connected to our servers and does not affect protection Immunet provide in any ways. We will try to git it fixed soon. Thanks @ritchie58 for your response.

    Hi, Can we please add an option to prompt the user if Cisco Orbital and osquery should be installed and/or enabled, before this happens? Maybe at installation time then as an option in the "Scan Settings" ? From Cisco: https://orbital.amp.cisco.com/help/what-is-orbital/ " Cisco Orbital is a service that uses Osquery to provide you and your applications with information about your hosts. Osquery exposes an entire operating system as a relational database that you can query with SQL to gather information about the host. Orbital can be used by both Cisco customers and their applications to query their computers wherever Orbital has been deployed. " Orbital, in the context of a privately owned endpoint, is a very intrusive tool and should not be enabled by default. Thank you.

    I used Immunet alongside Sophos Home for maybe a year on a Windows 10 rig. It was probably the most stable and quick combination I've ever used - and that was with the ClamAV engine enabled as well! They never clashed once, even on files they could both detect. For ages I never bothered adding each to the other's exclusion list, and they played fine together. I eventually added each one's "program files" folders to the other's exclusion-list, when Sophos eventually got a false positive on one of Immunet's temporary files (I had ClamAV enabled). I think I also had to add another Sophos folder (somewhere inside "c:\programdata") to Immunet's exclusions. The combo was great and never gave me an issue once. Speed was similar to running just Windows Defender. The only way I could get quicker performance was to turn off ClamAV or switch to running just Kaspersky or F-Secure on its own.

    Thanks Ritchie! I should have been a bit more specific with "low power" like HTPCs and basic builds I have been a fan of Immunets cloud ability's for a while. Yeah my personal build is a bit overkill Donavyn, I set up a VM to test Sophos with immunet and my results are pretty good like yours. I did run in to a bit of slow down with opening larger programs, but turning off monitor program start seemed have fixed it. Have you run in to that? Could have just been me as I only allocated 4 gigs ram to it. I usually keep that setting on though. Other then that it seems to work very well with both AVs running. I'll keep testing it for a bit to see if anything under different scenarios else come up.

    Thanks everyone for their input. In my test environment I'm seeing no issues between the two applications as of yet. Sophos Home Pro and Immunet are functioning without any added configuration to quell any false positives. So far so good!

    Hello Diego, Immunet protection improved a lot with the lastest updates. You can use it alone or with another antivirus if you wish. For a normal user Immunet can offer proper protection by itself. This is a video from a test some guy made using Immunet.

    Has anyone else been getting a certificate error/warning when attempting to visit these forums? I've checked my computer's clock and tried visiting with GNU Icecat (Firefox ESR), regular Firefox, and Vivaldi (based on Chromium). Warning message every time. I haven't tried regular Google Chrome but suspect users of that browser won't have any issue connecting, because last time I paid any attention to anything G, Chrome still wasn't checking the validity of HTTPS certificates (this might seem convenient because all websites "just work", but in reality is a very bad thing for your security). This situation might have changed, but as I have not used anything G for a very long time, I cannot check. If it helps webmasters with any diagnostics, I use "HTTPS everywhere" from EFF.

    If the UI ever supposedly comes to a change where the old theme will be replaced with a newer one then before that happens you should know why it's not a good idea. Modern UI is almost everywhere, some people have brought up the idea to replace the "dated" older UI. My question is, do you REALLY want to do what everybody else's doing with THEIR website? I mean, you can do whatever you want to YOUR website but consider this: why am I doing this? Are you doing it because of the new modern UI trend popularized by Microsoft? (Microsoft really popularized modern UI, look it up if you don't believe what I'm saying). What I think is; you should do what YOU want to do, not what everybody else's doing. And if that IS what you want to do then go ahead. I must say though, a flat UI makes a 2D screen boring. A 3D UI (like the one Immunet is using for their program rn.) establishes what's boring to new, futuristic, and special. My idea is this: You can change whatever you want, but don't make it modern UI. This's just a constructive opinion, you don't have to do what I tell you to do, but when you have almost every single website you look at SHARE ONE ENTIRE UI, I start to lose sanity. What I will like is if you change the UI to something less "dated" but keep the 3D effect. You can even make a whole new UI yourself.

    I wholeheartedly agree. The standard Immunet UI actually looks pretty good and has aged rather well. It's also very easy to understand and use, right from the moment you first ever use the program. The only real area where it starts to show its age is on high resolution screens, where it either appears very small or scales poorly. It was better suited to the days of 800x600 or 1024x768. Maybe all it needs is a very slight cosmetic revamp, and the addition of scaling/HiDPI capability, with the general layout left largely untouched. Like others here, I really don't like the trend for "modern" UI. It's flat, boring, looks dated to begin with, and has no visual appeal whatsoever. It's like the whole metaphor of a "button" that you "press" has gone out of the window, and designers got lazy and just drew harsh-edged rectangles in Paintbrush. I remember DosShell and the MS Windows 1.x-2.x series being more ornate than W10. Even the standard X11 TWM is, and that's older than me! I still think the prettiest and nicest looking user interface for desktop PCs was KDE3 with the Keramik widgets and window-decorations, and Crystal icon theme. That was extremely 3D! The nearest Windows equivalent would probably be Windows XP Luna. Both still look good today even in a VM on modern hardware - although I think the best looking Windows interface by far (and easiest to use) is the 9x/ME/NT/2000 interface. Again, those buttons etc. still look good for some programs, even at high res.

    Well this morning it decided to work. The last scan button was yellow (for not doing a scan within 24 hours?) so I did a flash scan.After that was complete I tried to schedule a scan again and it let me.

    Happy New Year! And a pray for the fires all over the world, especially Australia, to stop! Finally, I did it again! To remove this error 503 you need to make a clean uninstall of Immunet first and then reinstall it! Uninstall, clear all data. After restarting, delete folders of immunet on program files and data. After, running regedit.exe, search for "immunet" delete these keys and subkeys... (I deleted some root keys also (where I see that it is only for immunet). Then reinstall! I didn't try it without registry cleaning (only reinstall after uninstalling) but you can try it first (just to not mess up with registry) Happy new 2020

    RanSim is a tool that simulates the behavior of ransomware. The purpose of RanSim is to check if a workstation is well-protected with endpoint security software which would be able to detect and prevent real ransomware attacks. It also allows you to see if this software is incorrectly blocking files by running "false positive" scenarios. You can optionally select specific files you'd like to test to see how they would be affected by the ransomware simulations. ............................................maybe similar to cisco/talos amp,network protection

    The Department of Homeland Security issued a rare public warning urging on-line shoppers to use a great deal of vigilance this holiday season! Black Friday's on-line sales was at a record high of about 4.1 billion dollars spent, I'm sure the bad guys have taken notice of this, and Cyber Monday is right around the corner too. Cyber crime always increases during the holiday season but there has been an "alarmingly noticeable increase" of reported incidents compared to last year. Here are some things you can do to protect yourself from becoming a victim of cyber crime. First of all it's not a bad idea to update your Antivirus software & run a malware scan of your Operating System drive before doing any holiday shopping. Then make sure your AV is kept up to date while doing your on-line shopping. If you have access to a Virtual Private Network (VPN) definitely use it whenever you do any on-line banking or shopping regardless of the time of year. When holiday shopping on-line make sure you don't end up on a bogus site that resembles the real thing. Fake websites are on the rise this year. Apple, Amazon, and Target are currently the most impersonated. Other big names in the same situation are Tiffany, Sony, Samsung, and Microsoft. Always look for the secure "HTTPS" URL header with the shopping site's Domain name. Almost all legitimate on-line retailers use these secure encryption protocols that protects your personal data that's being sent from your browser. Also look for Domain names for popular brands that have spelling errors or mistakes, even if using the HTTPS protocols or not (HTTP) these are not genuine. Consider using a major credit card for payment such as Visa or MasterCard, etc... instead of a bank debit card. If using a debit card your savings or checking account could be drained and, unless the criminals are actually caught, there's nothing much can be done about that. Most major credit card company's offer some form of reimbursement if it's discovered that you were a victim of scamming. Plus the big card company's have methods to detect & react to possible fraudulent use of your card number. Still check your card's account often for any unauthorized purchases and contact the card issuer right away if you suspect something is amiss. Another option would be to use PayPal or a similar secure web based payment service if the retailer accepts these types of payment methods. Email is also being used for phishing attempts, malware using attachments as an attack vector or to re-direct you to a malicious drive-by download site. Avoid opening any links or attachments that come from any unsolicited entity. Especially if it comes from a company or charity you never heard of or never done business with. Be very wary of so-called free giveaways, discounts or gift cards delivered to your in-box this holiday season. When in doubt, just delete them. Social media sites are also being targeted with possible malicious/phishing links offering such holiday themed giveaways, gift cards or discounts. So be wary of any links you click on while visiting social media sites as well. A little common sense can go a long way to keep you safe too. "If you see a bargain that seems too good to be true it probably is!" Best wishes, Ritchie...

    only from what I just read on https://blog.virustotal.com/2019/10/virustotal-bitdefender-theta.html tldr; Theta is bitDefenders automated malware analysis engine. all AVav companies, including Immunet, have a few. Some are better than others, but newer ones are always prone to FP's.

    I am a new User and have no idea if this is helpful but just in case... I could not download the installer. It kept telling me there was an internet problem. So I saw this thread and tried the links posted above. Couldn't reach the https://sourcefire-apps.s3.amazonaws.com link. So after some investigating, I found out it was a Mozilla/Firefox problem. I changed my default browser in Windows to IE and boom, it worked. Hope this helps someone.

    Immunet doesn't have any know issues running in virtualized environments and has been thoroughly tested in vmware workstation, vmware server and virtual box. and once even in Microsoft's cloud. Complaints we've gotten about running in visualized environments usually stem from unrealistic expectations of performance on non-dedicated hardware (i.e. cloud hardware thats randomly shared with strangers (e.g. the free trial and budget tier's of google, amazon and Microsoft clouds). There is just too high a chance someone like me is sharing hardware time and already pushing the machine to it' s limits (see paragraph below:) To set some hardware expectations, I test Immunet on a local desktop running dual xenon e506 2.13Ghz CPU's +12 gb ram (ouch), and 2 independent scsi 1TB drives ( one dedicated to my os & apps, the other dedicated to vmware images) and it easily simultaneously powers my win10 working desktop (chrome, waterfox, and IE browsers, email, visual studio, and an Android Virtual device) plus 3 copies of immunet running on vmware workstation images for win7x32, win7x64, & xpx32. It can also power an additional win 10x64, but at this point the images start to chug ( I think disk bandwidth is the bottleneck). I can easily run this same level of compute (dektop + 4 images) + an additional win10_x64 image on a single more modern Intel i-core 7 + 64gb of ram and 2 sata disks (one flash drive for the OS & apps an a 1tb 7200 rpm disk for the images). Getting back to your original problem, yochenhsieh you nailed it figuring out clamAV, I've seen similar stats with my benchmarking too. The clam av engine loads it's full virus definitions signature set into memory: which takes from 100 to 600mb. add to that the clam scanning engine and virus definitions updater and clam alone can in a worst case scenario use in the the 700mb of memory range. Currently we have extra experimental blue keep preventative signatures out for a worm we're expecting that are inflating the usual virus definitions set size. You can try updating the clam av definitions set via the update button in the gui and running a full scan overnight. That might get you a smaller more concise set of definitions that'll take less memory and get you over the initial performance hump of building the local cache up.

    Sorry for the delay in responding & thanks for the added info. What it sounds like to me is that your copy of Immunet has some corrupted .db files if it's not remembering the previous settings configuration. I would suggest you try and do a clean uninstall. First uninstall Immunet, when asked by the uninstaller if you plan to reinstall Immunet again choose the "NO" option, this will delete all .db history files. Then reinstall Immunet but you will have to reconfigure the Settings and add any custom Exclusions you were using again. Let us know if this corrects the issue. I was given a free one year license for AMP a while back just to check it out myself so I am familiar with the software. It can be configured for home/personal use too. Having to use an on-line console to effect changes instead of a traditional UI did take a bit of getting use to I remember. This is a security feature since no unauthorized personal can make any changes to the software without the proper log in credentials to the console. Although not free like Immunet, AMP for Endpoints really is the better choice if you're using a multiple endpoint server environment for the simple fact that you can customize this software to your specific needs. Also with AMP you have the option of using the TETRA detection engine (which was part of the no longer available Immunet Plus). Originally based on Bitdefender's detection engine this now highly customized engine can sniff out usually hard to detect malware like root-kits, keyloggers, encrypted Trojan downloaders, etc... One more nice thing with AMP (compared to Immunet) is that you can configure it to automatically scan all in-coming email data packets for malware. A still prevalent attack vector. Compared to AMP, Immunet doesn't have no way near the customization options. I would suggest you stick with using AMP for Endpoints at least with your server! Something else I should mention is that Immunet is not licensed to be used in any "for profit" business, service, product or organization. If it's discovered Immunet is being used in this manner no further support will be offered. This info is included in the End User License Agreement (EULA) when you first install Immunet. Best wishes, Ritchie...

    Problem solved. I used Immunet installer (found in the \Temp folder) in a Windows 10 virtual machine, then I monitored the uninstaller process handlers while I used Revo Uninstaller. Then I erased (on my real, affected PC) all of the files the Uninstaller modified/erased (Cleanup agent included) and that Revo had to erase too (I used a Linux LiveCD as some files/registry entries were blocked). It looks like Immunet uses Cisco's AMP, (Self Protect, Policy files...) and all of those files are kind of hidden and well protected. After all that was done, Immunet installed correctly. If someone's having this problem, please don't do as I did, as this process is very, very risky and Windows will most certainly get damaged. Just disable your antivirus before installing KB4503293 update. It seems like this problem could happen with any antivirus, but Immunet has no Removal Tool and so the only fix is to reinstall (a system restore point won't do the trick) Windows. Anyway, this is a really unique problem so I don't think someone will ever run into this issue where Windows removes Immunet files (and uninstallers). Still, Cisco should offer a Removal Tool to avoid these situations. Thanks for all the help you've given to me, ritchie58.

    First of all for those that do not know what a VPN is here is a brief explanation of what it does. A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, allows you to create a secure connection using encryption protocols to another network over the Internet. VPNs can be used to access region-restricted websites, shield your browsing activity from hackers on public Wi-Fi, and much more. These days VPNs are "really" popular, but not for the reasons they were originally created. They originally were just a way to connect business networks together using encryption protocols over the internet or allow you to securely access a business network from home. VPNs essentially forward all your network traffic to an encrypted network, which is where the benefits, like accessing local network resources remotely and bypassing Internet censorship, come from. Why would I need a VPN service? Thanks to the Trump administration Congress passed legislation in Dec. of 2017 that allows your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to share or sell your browser history to third-party entities. Also, a VPN makes on-line shopping, banking or any site where sensitive data is required to be submitted much more secure since all internet activity is encrypted within the VPN service. I know that including a VPN service would be a costly endeavor since new code would have to be written and infrastructure changes would have to be enacted. For this reason I propose that a new Plus (paid) version be created to include an encrypted, entirely secure VPN service. Just an idea. Cheers, Ritchie...

    Initially, my Immunet had the auto quarantine option activated and it quarantined a lot of my executables from program files folder including IDMan.exe and some others like the vipsocks executable. I have no complaints against that - ClamAV's security features might be too good. What bugged me though is the quarantine's UI design. Some of the executables, detected from the "Appdata/Roaming" folders were leftovers from installations and I wanted to batch delete them. Alas, I couldn't do it. Also, there wasn't any option to add an exclusion as well for a particular file in quarantine itself while restoring a false positive. Same goes for deletion - I couldn't use my keyboard to multi - delete files. And its a pain to select 10 files by clicking on each of them and deleting them one by one. Workaround - Its true that the Immunet folder C:\Program Files\Immunet\Quarantine contains the quarantined files, but at least the GUI should prompt to open that folder so that one can batch delete at least if not batch restore.

    Thank you Richie a VPN in Immunet is a great suggestion, and thanks Cyrille for the +1 and being willing to pay for it. I've escalated the suggestion and can only wait and see what comes of it.

    Thanks for the positive feedback cyrille, appreciate that! Since more and more people do on-line shopping, bill payments & banking I see a great future with the progression & improvement of VPN technology. Why not Immunet jumping on the band wagon too, so to speak, and perhaps stay in the forefront of this technology. It could even prove be a money maker for Cisco if a viably secure "Immunet Plus VPN" version could be developed & deployed and enough people bought 1,2 ,3 or 5 year licenses!

    The difference between http and https is that with https any server page requests from your computer are automatically encrypted then decrypted by your browser using Hypertext Transfer over Secure Sockets Layer protocol. This means that any data sent to the server is encrypted so log in data, for instance, is much more secure from unauthorized access. There are plenty of http sites on the web still but more and more of them are switching to the https protocol as time goes by. If you are on a http site just be careful what personal information you divulge because hackers can more easily infiltrate and steal personal information from non-encrypted sites. That's why I was so glad to see this site "finally" start using the https protocol. Something I was advocating for in the past.

    Hello Parai & welcome to the Immunet forum, any support issue dealing with possible bugs is taken "very seriously" & are usually dealt with in a timely manner is what I recollect from my experience of using Immunet over the years. Feel free to start a new topic in the Support (Issues & Defects) section of the forum if you encounter what you may think is a new bug. In fact, we encourage that input from users just to make the product that much better. Immunet uses a bootstrapper installer that requires an internet connection during the install process so you will get the newest 6.2.4 version, which I would "definitely" recommend you use. You can download the newest installer by clicking on this link here. https://download.immunet.com/binaries/immunet/bin/ImmunetSetup.exe Please note: Immunet no longer supports Windows XP or Vista so I hope you're not using one of these older Operating Systems. Cheers, Ritchie...

    First of all that is an "out-dated build" of Immunet (seen it, this vid is old). The current version is 6.2.4.10819. This video has absolutely no current validity since it doesn't relate to the newest build. Secondly, there have also been some recent infrastructure changes that will help in defeating the spread of such malware more aggressively within the Immunet cloud community.

    Hello everyone, I see a lot of future in this software, its interface is destined to "the end", compared to other interfaces today ... But instead of just talking, I made a new design for Immunet AntiVirus .. .I only did the basic part, in case I get you back, I can go back to work on the interface and finish for a new look to the software. Here are the images: I look forward to the feedback from the developers, and also from the community. Att: Lucas Lks
