Does that seem right?? See attachment, please.

Hi WacoJohn,

There is something wrong with your community. A comparison with my community shows me with PF = 8,307, Robert PF = 40,310 & Richie PF = 45,175. These alone should have given you a positive PF! Then there is something wrong with the main threat in USA: ".tt". (= a file extension?!) I have no explanation to this!

Cheers,

sweidre

PS. Invite Millard into your community by using PM, caus he has a huge community with PF = 720,806 DS.

I did notice the other day that your PF had fallen to 0. I always assumed that people got a 0 because of their accounts not logging into the Immunet servers for an extended period of time. Unless it is some sort of glitch than that assumption just flew out the window.

I also notice with your stats that no threats were detected within your personal community recently. So perhaps because no threats were seen ( by every user within your personal community including you) it's showing you with a Protection Factor of 0. It could be that some threats have to be seen within your personal community to have a Protection Factor at all. As of this writing 697 threats have been stopped within my community with a PF of 45,305. Or perhaps both situations (not logging into the servers) could be factors. That is a possibility. It would be nice if someone in the know could shed some light on this topic.

Yes .. to both Ritchie an Seidre. This does not look right to me .. and, in fact, it looks the same today except for since I posted this I have added one more member to my community. Otherwise, . the stats are the same as in my attachment. I just logged out ... waited a minute, then logged back in ... but no change in community stats.

 

I too hope someone in the know would comment.

Hi Ritchie,

You might be right here! I have noticed, that my PF has fallen, when I have not used my computer for a day or two. (I'm not certain, so I will check this idea further!) Strange, just now I have for Sweden .tt as the Top Threat, as WacoJohn had yesterday for the US!

Nothing has changed for me. Still does not look right.

I see now in my Full Community that 1 threat has been detected for your original WacoJohn account. Do you have a PF now? Or is it still reading 0?

Yay!! PF 14. Now THIS looks 'right'. Top threat says ".tt" which seems a little odd. Don't know what that is about, but the rest looks 'normal'. Looks like you are right about the Threats Stopped theory .. if there are none ... then PF goes to 0.

I just took a look at my two other machines, Wacojohn1 and Wacojohn2 and they both have a PF 0 and of course, no threats stopped .. further confirming your theory.

I have the same problem as yours thread stop 0 protection factor 0 top thread -. Top thread for greece is .tt :blink:

Sweidre you may be on to something there too. Perhaps another element may come into play in determining one's Protection Factor. The element of time. Say you have 2 Immunet users. We'll call them user 1 and user 2. They have the exact same people in their personal communities. So in theory they should have the same Protection Factor then right? Perhaps not. Lets say user 1 spends, on average, 8 hours a day with his system up and running, and of course he's connected to his community during that time, while user 2 only spends an hour or 2 at most with his system running. Mathematically speaking the odds are with user 1 to see more detections than user 2 simply because of the extra time he's connected to his community. So the amount of time spent with Immunet up and running and connected to the internet may be a contributing element as to how many threats are detected as well. Just a hypothesis but that seems logical to me. P.S.- .tt or Agent32.tt.exe is a backdoor Trojan rated as severe for it's ability to install other malicious code on an infected computer.

Actually, we are (now) not quite sure it is a problem. We are theorizing that it is actually normal behavior .. that the behavior/reporting has to do with whether or not a detection has occurred as well as (possibly) uptime.

 

Right, Guys????

It is logical to assume that WacoJohn. That's what I'm starting to think.

 

 

Just FYI .. my uptime on ALL THREE machines is 24/7. Two of my machines have 0 PF and 0 threats stopped. The third shows 1 threat stopped and a PF 14.

 

Know also .. 3 machines, 3 different Immunet accounts. This is why some other's communities might show WacoJohn, WacoJohn1, and WacoJohn2.

Are you saying you have all three machines booted up and running constantly? They're never turned off? That must run up your electric bill,lol!

It must be that the threat that was detected came from someone from your first account and that person is not included in your other accounts or all three accounts would have detected it. That's why I suggested to you a while back to send invites from all three accounts when you add new people.

Hi,

I think the PF problem is almost solved! (I do not believe WacoJohn have all 3 machines on 24/7!) What about the Agent32.tt.exe problem? .tt has been reported as main threat in the US (WacoJohn), Greece (Boombasti) & Sweden (myself). For the moment I have .tt as the main threat for Sweden! Does .tt means, that we have Agent32.tt.exe in all in our machines or in several countries only? Are we infecting each other via the cloud or via our related "My communities"?

Cheers,

sweidre

Yes. In fact, I have 4 running 24/7. 2 Windows 7's, 1 XP, and 1 Linux.

I could be wrong, but I take the "Top Threat .tt" to mean it is detected and any Immunet user is protected. I think it is the 'top' threat in one's own country ... but I may be interpreting that wrong.

 

The W32.Trojan:Gen.a8990.vv (which shows in MY WacoJohn community) is a threat that was 'caught' on a download I did a couple of days ago.

Hi,

The future existence of "My Community" is uncertain. Study the 2nd post of this thread:

"Invitations To "my Community" Using chatroom?"

Hi Sweidre,

 

Currently there are no plans to improve or change the functionality of My Community. My Community is also the source of a huge number of support calls and in order to reduce this negative an idea was thrown around My Community might be taken out of the product some day. Nothing has been decided though.

It must be that this .tt Trojan is proliferating and spreading to other parts of the world. I think our stats show that since it's been seen as the top threat now in other countrys besides the U.S. I find it extremely unlikely that this Trojan is spreading because of our communities or the cloud Sweidre. If anything since it is the top threat I'm sure Immunet is protecting us from the virus. Glad to hear Immunet caught that Trojan WacoJohn. So you do keep your computers running 24/7. Ok, must be a reason that you do, business related I would venture to guess.

Yes I read that thread from Stephen that they might get rid of My Community. You know that's one of the things that drew me to try Immunet in the first place, the (at the time) innovative cloud and community based AV approach and the light system footprint. To eliminate the My Community feature would be eliminating something that makes Immunet, well, Immunet. If we users had a vote on weather to keep it I would vote yes and and ask them to work on fixing the bugs instead. I wonder how that would affect our protection when it's just cloud based (and there's really nothing new about that anymore) and not community based as well. I surely hope they do not. That's my two cents worth anyhow.

Hi,

.tt Trojan

Yes, I also believe, that .tt Trojan is spreading around the world as the top threat, but that we are all protected from it, because Immunet has it in the "cloud". (If .tt Trojan was infecting one of our computurs, then it should immediately appear in the quarantine.

Computers running 24/7

I had my computer running 24/7, when music albums were allowed to download either via FTP and later via Direct Connect. Nowadays, my computer runs only a few hours per day! Why all computers of WacoJohn are running 24/7, I do not know, and it is none of my business, in fact!

My Community

That Immunet maybe will skip "My Community" one day, makes sense to me. Why fix all the bugs in "My Community", when the "cloud" is protecting us all?! But "My Community" looks international & nice with member flags and all. Without "My Community" Immunet will unfortunately look dull to me, so I will miss it anyhow!

Cheers,

sweidre

I have 3 laptops and one desktop. Desktop running Linux (Xubuntu). 1 laptop is an XP machine .. and will not run W7. I bought a new Toshiba laptop W7 to replace it. However, the XP machine is perfectly good. I had an old Dell laptop which ran MagicJack. It died so I bought an Acer netbook (W7) mainly to run MagicJack on. I looked at my situation and realized I had 4 machines ... all usable. One needed to run 24/7 for MagicJack. I really had no use for 3 more .. but I have them ... and still rely on XP for a lot of things .. GPS support, a couple of DOS programs I still use ... the point is I have 4 usable machines so I decided to use them. All 4 of them .. in addition to other 24/7 things like MagicJack, I run a 'Folding at Home' client. As Folding clients, they are most effective if they run 24/7.

 

So the Linux 'folds' .. and gives me the opportunity to learn Linux. The XP machine is still my main computer .. I use it for almost everything (still) and it 'folds'. The new Tosh allows me to 'learn' W7 Professional and it 'folds'. The little netbook allows me to 'learn' W7 BASIC, runs MaicJack, and it 'folds'.

 

I agree with Seidre .. the My Community facet is attractive to Immunet users .. it has an aesthetic which is favorable to the marketing of the product. It DOES need to be improved though. Getting email addresses from strangers .. soliciting new members is clunky at best ..and furthermore, it is BUGGY. I am showing a pending for Seidre which will probably never go away and it is irritating to me (Seidre accepted quite some time ago). I hope they keep the My Community, but improve it as they go. One thing I notice .. there is no way (apparently) to UNjoin from a community or UNjoin someone from my community .. not that I particularly desire to.

 

I wonder often .. suppose someone joins my community ... decides they don't care for the product, uninstalls it ... never to return to it. I assume there is no indication (to me) this has happened. So I am 'enjoying' a respectible 'my community' when actually, it is not as represented. I think it would be GREAT if my community indicated who is actually using Immunet in real time ... as well as allow me to remove long term inactive members.
