New build of Immunet available.

Recommended Posts

Tonight I got a new build of Immunet pushed to me through the UI. The install went smoothly for me with no reboot necessary.

You can click on the 'Update Now' tab to see if you can update through the UI too.

If you wish to download the newest installer package here is a link for that. https://download.immunet.com/binaries/immunet/bin/ImmunetSetup.exe

What changes have been made with this build is not known 'at this time' as there has been no new topic posted in the Announcements section regarding this update.

Hi Vladimir,

Usually when a new build of Immunet is publicly rolled out the newest build of ClamAV is incorporated as well.

I see what you mean though. The newest ClamAV build is currently 0.105.1.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

Hello John,

Immunet only uses a boot-strapper installer that requires an internet connection. There is no 'off-line' installer packages available to the public anymore.

This is for security reasons. An off-line installer package can be hacked into and/or changed by the addition of malicious code. This actually happened to Piriform's CCleaner installer back in Oct. of 2021.

Hello All,

I think this is the right thread to report my findings on the new build of Immunet.

I too got it pushed through UI & i updated it. post update the flash scan wasn't running and kept giving an error. i couldn't capture the error but then i rant the complete scan

when i triggered the scan, MS Defender went up and spit out the attached notifications.

So, my question is: Is this build valid or is it a hack? Cause i see defender detected it as PUA:Win32/Presenoker

appreciate soonest response

Hi bpraj,

What you encountered is Defender flagging ClamAV's malware detection update files as possibly malicious. This is a False Positive.

It's a great idea if you create an exclusion for 'Immunet's entire Program Files folder' with Defender. That will go a long way at avoiding future FP's between Immunet & Defender.

Here's a Windows doc regarding how to create exclusions with Defender at this link. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/security/defender-endpoint/configure-exclusions-microsoft-defender-antivirus?view=o365-worldwide

Best wishes, Ritchie...
