    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

    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

    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

    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...

    You made a great Job here Ritchie, you help a lot this community. Perhaps cisco doesn't have someone managing support of immunet. It seems when they have a free time they visit here to see what is going on.

    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

    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.

    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...

    Hi Gordon, You're just one of many that have run into this same update/connection bug with the 7.3.0 build unfortunately. I use Immunet as a companion AV to another paid AV product. For that reason I didn't use the ClamAV module so that's never been a problem for me. However I did like the added security that the ETHOS & SPERO cloud engines provided. After I noticed that cloud lookups were not taking place I had no other choice but to uninstall Immunet for now. I mean, why keep an app installed that is essentially useless! So now I'm waiting for the developers to fix this issue before I reinstall Immunet again. What's particularly disconcerting for me is that no admin or dev seems to want to even take the time to look into this or let users know they're working on it. "I hate to sound so pessimistic but your guess is as good as mine when/if this bug will be adequately resolved regrettably!" I know Cisco has made Immunet a "Low Priory" project but this is getting absolutely ridicules how long it's taking in my honest opinion! Has Immunet become complete ABANDONWARE? I'm starting to have my suspicions and this ongoing scenario is really starting to bum me out! I've been involved with this project for over 10 years now and "this is the worst situation I've encountered in all that time!" If things don't improve soon I'm not sure how much longer I will wish to stay involved with this software. What's the point of helping to support abandonware that no longer even works properly? Frustratingly, Ritchie...

    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!!"

    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!

    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!

    Hi FoxFerox, It could be that the servers were really busy at that time. Try updating tomorrow to see if the same thing happens. Also make sure that any other security software you may be using is not blocking or interfering with any of Immunet's processes. These are sfc.exe, iptray.exe, cscm.exe and freshclam.exe. The ETHOS & SPERO engines don't use downloaded malware definitions in the traditional sense since everything is handled in the cloud. Don't have a clue as to why you couldn't upload that image to your post. If you continue to see this issue would you be willing to do some troubleshooting? This would entail using the Verbose Tray Notifications feature for a few days and uploading a Support Diagnostic Tool report for the Admin. Rob. T to take a look at. Cheers, Ritchie...

    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.

    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

    I'm seeing it again, this 503 error, and it hails back to GeekDaddy's August 27 post in that other thread where I posted up, too. In this class of software, one in which purports to provide protection against the dangers of the open internet, any error which persists, intermittently or not, for four months is unacceptable. Think about the error: a cloud based app fails to connect to it. 'Nuff said. While I can't accuse indifference and apathy on the part of the developers, it seems the problem won't be resolved. I suspect Immunet is way, way down on the corporation priority list. Having tried several Immunet versions for a period approaching a decade on test systems (over time, two Win7 and now Win10) and rejecting it for good reasons over and over, I had high hopes for this latest version. Again, it won't be migrating to my day-to-day systems. "Better luck next time" seems to be Immunet's strategy. Best regards.

    Hey ritchie58... What I meant by (error 0) is that what was reported in that little Immunet Updater windows instead of (error 503). Not that there were no more errors and I should have been more detailed than that. Sorry. However, today all I see is "Immunet is Up to Date." No (error anything ) ! Server side issue resolved it seems. I'll keep any eye on it. Later!

    To include the ability to lock the UI with a password is not a bad idea in my view! If the computer is used by multiple people (especially if kids are present) in the household that could prove to be beneficial. Actually Immunet's enterprise version called Amp for Endpoints uses an on-line console instead of a traditional UI. This ensures that no unauthorized personal can make any changes unless one knows the user name & password to the console.

    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.

    Great FP Analysis BellGamin, I came to all the same points you did. I'm m submitting this to our internal virus analysis team for further review , only because it's a perfect trojan, and it's a smaller /lesser known/used app (that being said I do remember using a taskbar tweaker back in the windows XP days. Now I use classic start menu, though I do note taskbar tweaker has more features than classic start menu, and all it's features work - another point in favor of it being a FP That being said, there has been a growing trend of hacking source code access to older indy projects, injecting malware into them. And I want to make sure that isn't the case here as I vaguely remember using taskbar tweaker back in the windows XP days. Now I use Classic start menu, And it doe swht I ned but I also note taskbar tweaker has more features;

    Because of version 7's excellent improvements to Immunet, I am once again a user and fan of this AV. I have a few comments concerning Immunet's Clam component: 1) I *think* Clam is included with Immunet primarily to enable a user to do a scan without needing an internet connection... correct??? 2) Some folks (I am one of them) do not need Clam because they use some other on-demand AV scanner (such as HitmanPro, McAfee Stinger, Dr.Web CureIt, Emsisoft EEK, & Trend Micro Housecall). I *suppose* this is the reason why Immunet's GUI offers the option of disabling Clam... correct??? 3) However, although Clam can be disabled by using the GUI, Clam is nevertheless resident on one's computer, unnecessarily taking up disk space. It would be nice if the option to NOT use Clam were instead included as an option in Immunet's install routine, so that it would not be loaded onto one's computer at all. By the way, my favorite computer loves immunet because it is VERY easy on RAM & CPU, and it scans really really fast. A beautiful job of programming! Aloha from Hawaii, bellgamin

    Hi Ritchie, I will look into providing a list of important fixes that are included in the release. To answer some of your other questions: The Credo engine is a new engine that is integrated within the product. The ScriptID engine will monitor PowerShell activity and doesn't require a new process to function. Cheers, Andrew

    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...
