    What a "great idea" for Immunet users to voice their likes & dislikes Barbara! I completed the survey although, if chosen, I wouldn't be able to participate in the video conference since my computer has no web cam. "I would 'strongly urge any & all Immunet users' to complete this survey!" It really does only take a few minutes & that will give the devs much more insight into what Immunet users want in a new build. Best wishes, Ritchie...

    A couple of times this month I received a recorded phone call allegedly from an Amazon employee stating that they have detected possibly fraudulent activity with my account. I was then prompted to press 1 for more info. "I immediately knew this was a 'scam call' for the simple reason that I don't have an Amazon account!" After that I decided to do some investigation into this. "Amazon is aware of this scam and is advising it's customers if you do receive one of these scam calls don't fall for it, just hang up & 'definitely don't press any numbers' when prompted!" You can always check your Amazon on-line account yourself if you have any concerns and then contact Amazon customer service directly if you have questions. These Amazon scammers have also been using hacked email accounts. If you receive an email with similar content just delete it without clicking on any links or attachments included. You're also encouraged to report these calls or email to the Better Business Bureau, https://www.bbb.org/ and the Federal Trade Commission. https://reportfraud.ftc.gov/ Not a bad idea to also report this activity to your state's Attorneys General office. Regards, Ritchie...

    Hi Immunet Users, The development team working on Immunet (by Cisco) is looking for your feedback. Do you have 5 minutes to fill out a survey telling us more about how you use Immunet and how you think it could improve? Here is the link to the survey: https://www.ciscofeedback.vovici.com/se/6A5348A7201B0385 We know there is a lot of misinformation on the internet these days. If you would like to verify that this is real Cisco-sponsored research, email Barbara Shain, Cisco User Researcher, at bshain@cisco.com Thanks, Immunet UX

    I think this is an awesome thing!! I have filled out the survey and left my feedback. I really like that the platform is getting more support from cisco! As you said ritchie I would also encourage all users to fill out the survey, this will give us a chance to give feedback to the devs on how to improve the AV. The more of us that fill it out the better it will be. I can't wait to see how the survey helps and how it will help improve Immunet as a whole:) Stay safe everyone

    Hmm, restore from quarantine seems fine now. I suspect this might just be related to system load. If the system is under stress when an attempt is made to restore from quarantine, it probably takes slightly too long for the GUI to communicate properly with the Immunet service, so the GUI assumes that the service isn't running, and/or the operation has failed. Intermittent error are the worst to diagnose and fix!

    Hey all, For a more "generic" way to start/stop Immunet, you can do the following (possibly only works in Windows 10, I haven't tried on earlier versions * ) : Stopping Immunet From the command line: wmic service where "name like 'Immunet%'" call stopservice or from a batch file: wmic service where "name like 'Immunet%%'" call stopservice (Re-)Starting Immunet From the command line: wmic service where "name like 'Immunet%'" call startservice or from a batch file: wmic service where "name like 'Immunet%%'" call startservice The advantage of these is you don't need to know what version of Immunet you're using, so you don't need to work out the new service name after upgrades or edit any scripts you have. I have a custom script that downloads some of the Securiteinfo, Sanesecurity and RFXN custom databases, stops Immunet, copies them to Immunet's "ClamAV" dir, and restarts Immunet. By identifying the "newest" ClamAV dir and using the more-generic way of stopping the service, my script doesn't need editing every time Immunet upgrades. For my case, this increases Immunet's static file detection rate from about ~75% to >95%. I originally worked this out a while ago because I did a couple of upgrades where the Immunet service changed name from something like "ImmunetProtect" to "Immunet 6.0.4" --- * I don't know much about Windows as I've been primarily a Unix/Solaris/GNU-Linux user for both work and play since the late 1990s. I only maintain a Windows installation for the tuning software that allows me to flash custom maps to my car's ECU.

    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.

    Hi RonE, I just checked the right-click context menu scan with a few folders and you're absolutely correct, it doesn't seem to work with this new 7.3.12 build (see images)! Thanks for bringing this issue to my attention & I'll attempt to contact an Admin regarding this but trying to get an Admin or Dev involved on the forum these days is like trying to win the MegaMillions lottery jackpot. Most likely it isn't going to happen but I'll try. Regards, Ritchie...

    ok this is what I did, Ran full scan with Immunet (I only have immunet but I made ClamAV was on). I don't have defender because my understanding is that you have to delete Immunet to install defender to run it (not sure the exactly way to do that correctly, so will hold off on doing that for now and will wait for response from you all). Run full scan on Immunet flag 74. 72 were like the first one the 2 like the 2nd one. I restore one of the files like the 1st one and drop it into www.virustotal.com. and only ClamAV detected it out of 60 other engines (please see pic) . What do you folks think do we have a false positive??? Also some of the Adobe files were listed from months ago. I am pretty sure I ran Immunet full scan more often then that. I am pretty sure I rant Immunet full scan last week if not the week before. any help will be appreciated. The other questions is in immunet if a file is quarantine it disappears form the file-path tree so for me I can not drop the file in virustotal.com unless I restore the file. Is there a way I can drop the file in virustotal when it is in quaranitine from immunet??? ps I use firefox and I have window 10. thanks

    Original article by Katherian - cybersecurity expert & Emsisoft blog contributor Who would have thought that holiday 2019 would be the “last” of the traditional holidays we’ve enjoyed for so long (at least for some time)? This year, there are no carolers, no shopping in packed malls, no ice skating in public rinks, and very little of all the other holiday fanfare we’re used to. Instead, many of us are home—in front of the computer for several hours per day—studying or working remotely. There’s also shopping, gaming, and watching, all done online as well. (Quick shoutout to the front liners and essential workers! Thank you!) Suffice it to say, holiday season 2020 is unlike any we’ve had in recent memory. And cybercriminals are having the profit of their lives. As the holidays approach, we start to let our guard down. Many people are on vacation and trying to relax. Cybercriminals, on the other hand, are hard at work. They’re busy breaking and hacking networks, planting malware, or sending out phishing emails. The attacks never end. And as if the holidays (and pandemic) were not burning enough holes in our pockets, a cyber attack can happen at any time, too. We’re pretty sure the last thing you need right now is paying hackers thousands of dollars of ransom to decrypt your personal and work files. So to help you avoid more headaches, here are four easy things you can do to stay safe online during this holiday season (and beyond): 1. Create a separate guest wifi If you have a few friends and family coming over, you absolutely need to create separate guest wifi. Particularly if you work from home since your business files could be accessible in your home network. Having separate wifi helps keep your home network separate and secure from your guests. That way, you feel comfortable giving out the password and not worrying about having to remember to change it after your guests leave. Yes, we still recommend you create guest wifi even if you trust your friends and family with your life. The folks at LifeWire wrote a great post on how to create guest wifi. 2. New year, new password Update your passwords, or better yet, get yourself a password manager. It will save you a lot of time and potentially a lot of headaches down the line. Hackers are busy breaking through accounts using publicly leaked passwords. Don’t make it too easy for them. Depending on how many online accounts you have, this could take a few minutes to an hour or two of your time. So think of this as an investment—you’re actually saving yourself hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars from avoiding a cyber-attack. Not to mention setting yourself up for security success. We have a winning guide on password management here. 3. Shop securely Found a unique gift from an eCommerce store? Doing more last-minute shopping (even if it’s just gift cards)? Before you checkout and provide your card info, make sure you’re on a secure site. First, try to only go to online stores you know and trust. Second, check the site’s URL and make sure there’s “https://” at the beginning, and the URL is what you expect it to be. For example, if you’re on Paypal, make sure the URL says “paypal.com” not a misspelled variant like “paypaal.com,” or any other unrecognized URL. Third, consider using a disposable or virtual credit card, especially for one-off purchases. Doing this helps further secure your information. To learn more about how to get one, go to Wallet Hub‘s guide to virtual cards. 4. Keep your security apps running Your antivirus, VPN, etc., are some of your most vital defense against hackers. Keep them running. Cybercriminals are going all out and will try to catch you everywhere on the web. Whether by downloading an app or file, clicking on an email, or visiting an innocent-looking website, you can fall prey to malware within seconds.

    Wow! I can't think of anything else for you to try qwerty123, I'm at a loss. Sorry I couldn't help ya bro! I would normally recommend that you submit another FP report to the devs but the FP reporting URL seems to be non-functional at this time which comes as no surprise to me given the current circumstances. With no technical support on this site anymore and other on-going issues (such as the FP URL not working & the continuing EX0 server error messages with this site to name a few) I know I'm starting to get quite perplexed as to why Immunet was/is being so neglected for so many months now. I know there's a pandemic going on but other AV company's don't seem to have problems providing expert technical support for it's users in spite of that fact. Must be that this software is a "extremely low" priory with Cisco right now. If things don't improve soon I don't think I will want to remain involved with this project. That's how frustrated I'm becoming! "I don't want to attempt to support, which I'm increasingly starting to believe is, just glorified abandonware for much longer!" Everyone has only so much patience before it's expended. Seeing software that once had such great potential (and still does actually) that I've been personally involved with for well over 10 years go by the wayside really sucks! Ritchie...

    If you created a C:\Program Files Exclusion for the game that should have worked! No mistakes can be made with spelling, spaces, etc... associated with the file path or the exclusion won't work. If you manually typed in the file path the first time around try using the Exclusion's "Browse" feature this time. Also, try excluding the game's "entire Program Files folder" if you didn't last time. Here's how... Open Settings -> scroll down to Add New Exclusion & click on that -> click on the Browse button -> find the correct Program Files folder and click on the folder itself -> click on Add Exclusion -> click Apply -> click Close. You can delete the old exclusion after you create the new one. I hope this info helps qwerty123 Best wishes, Ritchie...

    Well, isn't that strange! Sorry zom but I would recommend that matt use Revo Uninstaller instead since I've never heard of or used BCUninstaller. I've personally used Revo Uninstaller with very good results in the past with uninstalling troublesome programs. Revo can in fact find orphaned registry keys, left over folders and files too if you use the Advanced scan setting. The free version will work great with 32bit systems but I would recommend you choose the "fully functional free trial" of the Pro version if you have a 64bit system as it better supports those platforms. https://www.revouninstaller.com/revo-uninstaller-free-download/ If you've never used Revo Uninstaller before there are some great tutorial videos (even by the developers themselves) on YouTube you can view prior to using the software. Just to be on the safe side it's not a bad idea to create a manual "System Restore Point" first in case you accidentally delete something you shouldn't have (like a OS system file or folder). I would recommend you enter "Safe Mode without Networking" before uninstalling with Revo Uninstaller. Some earlier versions of Win 10, Microsoft (in it's infinite wisdom) made accessing Safe Mode a more dawn out affair so let me know if you run into any difficulty there. Also, please read the thread I added to the other Issues/Defects topic you posted regarding what to do next with the reinstall. Cheers, Ritchie...

    Hi qwerty123, Have you tried to add a custom Exclusion rule for the autohotkey app(s) with Immunet? If not, give that a try and see if that fixes the issue. Just make sure you exclude the correct file path(s) for the app(s).

    Don't forget to delete the files lastupd and update.log (a lastupd file can make trouble). During tests, I always rename the cvd files to see if fresh cvd's are being downloaded. FrankenImmunet, sounds good. FrankenImmunet with IgorCloud.

    It seems like there might be another issue in build 7.3.2, although I think it's an exacerbation of a long-standing one. I was running a full scan as a test in 7.3.2 and a few items (all false-positives so far) have been quarantined. Attempting to restore from quarantine results in "Restore from quarantine failed. Check agent is online". The agent is definitely online because I can still run more scans and quarantine (well, permanently lose) even more items. The unfortunate thing is, once a restoration attempt has failed once, Immunet won't let you even try to restore the item from quarantine again. This means that any files that have been quarantined and not restored are lost forever (subject to having adequate backups). This was always an intermittent (but rare issue) in Immunet, but in this latest build, it has happened on all but 1 of the detections in my initial test scan. This is why the "ask me" option in the settings should ask the question *before* quarantining, not after like it currently does.

    I could be wrong but I doubt that the Emsisoft tool is causing this. Are all those temp files associated with the Sin Confirmar Spanish to English translation software? If that's the case you just might need to add a custom Exclusion rule or two to Immunet.

    I do have something else that comes to mind actually. It has been reported on numerous occasions that users of laptop, netbook, tablet PC"s or monitor that have a 4k screen resolution cannot easily (if at all) use Immunet's UI since it's so small. This must be something that is hard to fix since it's been a known unresolved issue for some time. If it's impossible for Immunet to be coded to automatically recognize the screen resolution a user has then would it be possible to add an extra toggle switch in Settings to go from normal to a up-scaled UI that 4k users can easily access? Another idea for you guys to make the product that much better if possible! After all, the more users in the cloud community the better the efficacy for everyone! Cheers, Ritchie...

    Hi Immunet_UX, I posted a topic to include a VPN service with Immunet a while back. Here is a link to the original topic. https://support.immunet.com/topic/4437-include-a-vpn-service-with-immunet/ The reason why I'm mentioning this again is that with the covid-19 pandemic still occurring many more people are working from home, doing on-line shopping or banking then ever before! My idea was to create a new Plus (paid) version to include this service. I do have another idea. Why not also include the TETRA module to this new Plus version as well. The old Plus version gave users the option to use this engine so I bet it wouldn't be that hard to include this engine once again. Could end up being a money maker for Cisco I think! It is a fact that Immunet's user base was consistently much larger when a Plus & Free version was offered to the public. What ever the outcome is I am glad to hear that Immunet is not being scrapped and l honestly look forward to working with you and your team in the future. Regards, Ritchie...

    I just made a post on how to open the IP Ranges for "updates" and "cloud connectivity" and how to get exact IP addresses if you don't want to open up the whole range. It's posted under "General" and titled "IP Ranges" if your issue is something else, I'm about to make a quick white paper on how to fix update hiccups.

    I noticed that I get the "not updated" status on a fresh install until I manually perform a scan (even just a "flash scan" will do - and it only takes a minute or two). Even after manually updating Immunet, I noticed that closing and re-opening the GUI (or restarting the computer) resulted in the "not updated" status. The only way to fix it was to update then scan. On every machine I've tried so far (all some variant of Windows 10), the following seems to fix it: 1. Open Immunet GUI 2. Manually check for updates. Wait a few minutes, to give the ClamAV database a chance to update, then close the update dialog. 3. Now run a flash scan (or full scan, but beware a full scan can take hours whereas a flash scan only takes minutes). It seems as if forcing an update then forcing a scan resets Immunet's indicators and it all works again.

    Well... A full server restart later with newer update installed. *NO CHANGE* Next steps: 1) Removing Immunet, 2) Restarting server, 3) Run registry cleaner (ccleaner), 4) Delete registry links and folder links to Immunet manually myself, 5) And do a fresh install. I'll be back!

    I'm sorry to say that the Orbital code can't be disabled or deleted once it's installed. It's now an integral part of how Immunet's protection works for you. Not everyone gets the Orbital code actually. I never got the code installed on my PC. A person gets the Orbital code if Immunet detects one or more security weaknesses with your Operating System. That fills the gap for those possible vulnerabilities so to speak. Interesting idea to let the user decide if he/she wants to use it though. You could start a new topic in the "Ideas" section of the forum regarding the subject. That's not a bad idea! Regards, Ritchie...

    Yet another false positive during a Photoshop update. Between the quarantines of Windows updates, the log files filling up drives until 0 space is left, extreme CPU hogging and latest updates always being crap (making me always wait months before updating as others work through the crap and fixes are released) it is not worth it any more. It may actually be easier to deal with viruses. Can anyone recommend a good free alternative for active scanning? I usually also keep Malwarebytes on my computer and it's always been good at catching malware, but I don't like using it for active scanning.

    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.

    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.

    Sorry to hear you had a bad experience with Immunet. Did you create an exclusion rule for Malwarebytes entire Program Files folder with Immunet & create a exclusion rule for Immunet with MB? That can go a long way in avoiding possible conflicts when running Immunet as a companion AV to another product. Like you mentioned, it could also be that your older computer just doesn't have the system resources needed. Especially if it's older SDRAM or DDR memory modules 3 gigs of RAM really isn't that much memory these days as software increasingly becomes more complex requiring more RAM & CPU cycles. I seen this happen to a friend of mine a number of years back. He was using an older rig with Win XP installed. After upgrading to a newer version of Immunet at that time he discovered that his old computer would just shut down after boot-up because "all available SDRAM memory was being used up!" I had to help him uninstall Immunet by using Safe Mode. Immunet no longer supports Windows XP since version 5 was first rolled out. I'm sure you're also aware that Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7 with security updates, bug fixes and system upgrades. That means as time goes by your computer will become more vulnerable to malware, viruses and hackers. Maybe it is time to consider getting a newer rig briab. Regards, Ritchie...

    Here's an update on another method scammers are using right now. Some people are reporting receiving scam phone calls saying they're a medical professional and that a family member is sick with covid-19 and needs to be treated but can not do so unless payment is received up front. Don't fall for this one either folks! Best wishes, Ritchie...

    Thanks for the additional feedback qwerty123! I'm not unfamiliar with building a rig from scratch. Letting me know that the D:\ drive is a HDD & not a SSD was very helpful! That would have been my next question. I think I have a good extrapolation what may be causing this behavior as I was able to reproduce it after some experimentation. I have a couple of HDD drives connected via SATA to the MoBo besides the C:\ drive on my current rig. I also use the Windows energy saver settings. If, after boot-up, a drive is not accessed within the specified time Windows will automatically turn off that drive to save power & needless wear & tear. Some MoBos have similar hardware based BIOS settings too. If you attempt to conduct a Context Menu Scan with Immunet and that particular HD disk is not already spinning at normal speed then it is possible that Immunet cannot access that drive before the disk has a chance to spin up to speed. If the drive is already spinning at normal speed then a CM scan will take place regardless of the drive letter has been my observation. P.S. - With your 10th post you are our newest official forum "member" and no longer a newbie! Congrats on that bro! Regards, Ritchie...

    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.

    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...

    A lot of users have a third part firewall running which is a great idea but sometime some problems between the firewall and Immunet happens. Most software based firewalls will automatically ask if you want to allow Immunet passing through but a few dont. The few software based firewalls and most hardware based firewalls who dont allow Immunet to run probably need to be configured to allow Immunet to communicate with the cloud. To allow connection to the internet you need to allow or open a few ports that are being used by Immunet. The port number used for cloud communication are: 80 - TCP (HTTP) 443 - TCP (HTTPS) 32137 - TCP. 53 - UDP is needed for DNS lookup. So keep those ports open for Immunet in software and hardware based firewalls. (Hardware based firewalls are often built-in in routers and modems).
