    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

    Hello all, We are happy to announce a new release of Immunet: Version 7.3.0! This latest version of Immunet provides the same great protection against malware and viruses as before but also includes some new features, enhancements and bug fixes as below. Changes in 7.3.0 New & Enhancements: New endpoint threat activity detection engine New Immunet UI cloud connect status message replacing cloud stats message Bug Fixes: Connector cloud registration issue fix related to long network interface names Fixed an issue related to support package Mitigating fixes related to no-reboot upgrade and uninstall failures Immunet Installer bug fixes Other bug fixes You can get the new installer from here https://download.immunet.com/binaries/immunet/bin/ImmunetSetup.exe 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 to your participation in using our new detection engine and some help in cases of upgrade reboot failures issues, if encountered any. We would appreciate it if you can reach out to us via support forum with Support logs as soon as you see upgrade failing or upgrade asking for a reboot on upgrade. 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

    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.

    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.

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 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...

    I am running Windows 7 Pro on an older desk top and during the last few days have been getting a Virus detected and quarantined message on virtually every application that I use. I have been using some of these sights for 10 plus years and never had this issue previously. It persists even when I switch from Firefox to Chrome. I just ran a full scan of the entire computer and get reports of no virus found and have verified that the latest update is installed (as of 2/2/19). When I go to manually initialize Immunet, I see a note that the computer has never been scanned and is not secure even when I have just run a full scan. A typical warning is that f_0001f3 has been detected as Clam.Txt.Trojan.Generic-6840302-0. Quarantine was successful. I even got a message that Firefox Installer was a Trojan. This is very annoying and I would like some suggestions to resolve this issue. Nelson

    confirmed, is defiantly a Clam false positive. Thanks to everyone who reported this. we're reprod it internally and are working on a fix. In the mean time, if you turn off the clam AV engine in Immunet's settings that'll prevent the constant FP notifications and still keep your computer protected with the immunet cloud engine. We'll notify the thread to turn clam back on as soon as the fp is fixed.

    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

    Thanks for the encouraging words guys! "I do really appreciate it!" It is rather obvious by now that Immunet is not getting the priority it once did by the Cisco/Sourcefire management. I guess one can only hope that things will eventually improve and there is more input from the support staff. Best wishes, Ritchie...

    Everyone is entitled to there opinion Frank. What I would like to see is more input from some knowledgeable support staff helping users with there technical issues. I'm the forum moderator for this site but I've been thrust into the role of doing the duties of a support person to the best of my abilities. I've been getting almost no help for over several months now! I have no clue as to why that's happening! The admin Rob T was a great help on the site but he's been M.I.A. since April. That certainly isn't the first time this has happened in the years I've been doing this. "It does get 'rather frustrating' when I get no assistance at all on the site!!"

    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.

    Hi 4tygrit, You're not the only one experiencing update problems with Immunet presently. After folks upgraded to version 7.2.8 the UI cloud stats no longer displayed correctly and also there's reports of Immunet not letting updates to be installed. Your guess is as good as mine as to why these issues are not being looked into in a timely manner! The admin. Rob T. was helping out on the forum but he's been M.I.A. for more than a month now. There's only so much I can do being the moderator for this site. These issues need to be looked into on the server side of things. Something I can't do. "It's really starting to bum me out that support for Immunet is seemingly being completely neglected at this time to be perfectly honest with you!" Regards, Ritchie...

    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.

    Sorry all, I haven't been able to reproduce the 503 error on any version of windows 10 so all I have to offer is some troubleshooting steps for it's most likly causes. By any chance Is anyone on this thread seeing this error from somewhere outside north America? If you are seeing the 503 error please verify you can at least: 1) ping clamav.net should output something similar to: Pinging clamav.net [198.148.79.54] with 32 bytes of data: Reply from 198.148.79.54: bytes=32 time=80ms TTL=128 2) browse to update.immunet.com --> It's just a blank page with nothing to see. The important thing is you don't get any "page not found"/403/503/unreachable error messages. 3) browse to http://database.clamav.net --> this should open a page saying "You reached one of ClamAV virus database mirrors:" 4) if steps 2 or 3 fail, please double check from a different browser. If your getting errors with any of the above, you there are 3 common causes: A) there is a local a firewall preventing you from accessing Immunet's servers. Temporarily disable it and see if your 503 errors stop. Also note that sometimes windows 10 updates will turn the default windows firewall back on. So if you thought you left it disabled it's worth double checking it's still disabled. Immunet's IP addresses change all the time and a common problem we see is users allowing access to Immunet server IP's during the initial install and everything works great, but a few months later our server IP's change but your local machine's firewall rules have to be manually get updated to allow connecting to Immunet's new IP's. C) You might be using a DNS server that can't resolve Immunet's hostnames to the correct IP addresses. Try setting a different DNS server in your network connection settings : Google hosts one at 8.8.8.8 (it's also the only static IP I know). I won't guarantee anything about it's privacy, but I will guarantee its at least providing accurate hostname-to-IP resolution to reach Immunets servers. i) Immunet uses the default system level default DNS server, which is usually found in your local area connections settings, and is usually assigned automatically by your internet provider. ii) Note that a computer can be configured to use an multiple alternate DNS servers than the one provided by your internet provider. Individual web browsers can be set to use different DNS' from each other, which can in turn also be different from the local area connection level dns. iii) Some programs that can lead to the confusion of dealing with multiple DNS servers are: -Comodo Firewall products that install their own local DNS Server. -browser plugins & add-ons that claim to to increase security or privacy by re-routing DNS queries that originate from the browser through their secure/alternate DNS server. -Private vpn's usually provide their own DNS servers while you're connected to them and sometimes offer free private DNS servers for use when disconnected from the vpn. -malware that will maliciously redirect your DNS settings "aka the DNShijack" attack. iv) The user Amydala reported above that Immunet's installer didn't work with the Firefox browser but did work with IE. This is a telltale sign of having multiple different DNS servers across different browsers.

    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...

    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.

    Hi Bitsomper, I'm sure you've read the previous threads to this topic so the devs are definitely aware of the situation. Unfortunately the newest 6.3.0.10988 build did not address this known issue. Thanks for adding this thread! Maybe the devs will see this issue is still causing problems for users and "eventually" do something about it. Immunet really needs to incorporate a way to upscale the UI for 4k screens! That is a obviously needed upgrade, that seems to be continually overlooked, that should be implemented with some new code in some future build. The sooner the better in my opinion.

    Instead of downloading an online installer, try the same with the offline installer. You can download it here. Also, ClamAV detects a lot of false positives, so no need to worry.

    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...

    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.

    Thank you very much for reporting this Jon. I've successfully reproduced it, and at this point my only advice is to steer clear of win 10 1809. as far as I can MS pulled it after release due to driver incompatibilities and potentially deleting user data when upgrading from previous versions. I was able to obtain a 1809 iso through MSDN and it ended up bootlooping during install of both home& pro win 10 versions (installing to vmware workstation). I had to use a workaround just to complete the OS install: https://luyentap.blogspot.com/2017/10/windows-installation-cannot-proceed.html. After that I was able to install Immunet and repro your bug.

    Richie is correct - the internet connection icon is a standard windows thing. the Bing image search told your browser to show an image from neilrosenthl.com and your browser went to grab it from 104.27.175.64. According to https://dnslytics.com/ip/104.27.175.64 that ip is hosting 290 domains/websites. likely one of them at one point was hosting something malicious. Though currently neilrosental.com appears to be safe. Looks like a false positive to me. Sorry, our bad on that one. I do have one concern here though. It's common to first notice the internet connection icon after having a random router/modem reboot. I The internet stops working, so you go to your network connections to check your ip/network status and while your poking around the internet connection icon appears out of nowhere when the router/modem comes back online. There are lots of good reasons for a router to reboot itself, but it should be noted that not all vpn connections can survive a router reboot. Some can, some will notify you the vpn closed unexpectedly, and some will just fail silently and your internet activity will automatically re-route over non encrypted public internet. Thanks, RobT

    I just renamed an album's worth of files using the program, and Immunet didn't get triggered, so the exceptions must be working like they should.

    Ritchie, Thank you for responding so promptly! I'm satisfied with your response as it seems to be a well-established one to these types of questions in the forum. As a huge fan of you and your teams' work, I will continue to hope that this type of functionality lands itself onto your roadmap somehow. Thanks again for taking the time this weekend.
