Recommended Posts

Hello all,

We are happy to announce a new release of Immunet: Version 7.2.8!

This latest version of Immunet provides the same great protection against malware and viruses as before but also includes some new features, enchantments and bug fixes as below.

Changes in 7.2.8

New & Enhancements:

  • Added support for the Windows 10 November 2019 Update (version 1909)
  • Added support for Windows 10 20H1 (Version 2004) (RTM Preview build: 19041)
  • Improved visibility and enhanced protection against script-based attacks
  • System Process Protection Improvements
  • Improved Malicious Activity Protection engine to no longer detect on Google Chrome
  • Stability Improvements in the Exploit Prevention engine
  • Installer improvements to handle NoReboot upgrades and uninstall
  • Stability Improvements in the Immunet SelfProtect driver

Bug Fixes:

  • Resolved Windows Connector service freeze issue on startup, under certain circumstances
  • Improved the Windows connector process of gathering BIOS serial number, when needed, to properly detect hardware changes for registration with AMP Cloud
  • Fixed a crash that could be encountered on shutdown
  • Addressed issue where Windows Connector would fail to upgrade when installed alongside BitDefender AV
  • Made stability improvements in the Connector installer
  • Fixed an issue where ClamAV was taking a long time in scanning PDF files resulting into longer high CPU usage
  • Updated ClamAV to 0.102.1, including changes related to the vulnerability described in CVE-2019-15961
  • Fixed an Exploit Prevention engine issue that could cause Google Chrome v78 and later to crash or display a renderer code integrity error
  • This version also addresses the following vulnerabilities:
    • CVE-2019-1010305
    • CVE-2019-12625
    • CVE-2019-12900

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 and 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

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...

Some forum users pointed out that the quarantine/suspicious file behavior settings have either been eliminated from the UI or are not being displayed (a bug?)

Personally speaking I like to be able to decide for myself what to do when a file is quarantined using the "Ask Me" setting. I find that rather disconcerting that these options are no longer present!

Also, any ETA as to when the Cloud Stats server issue will be fixed?

  1. Reg. quarantine/suspicious file behaviour settings - We have identified the bug and will be fixed soon. 
  2. Reg. Cloud Stats server issue - Again it's a connector issue which will be fixed soon. 
  3. Reg. product update issues - We are not aware of any issue in this space. Will follow up with the user who is reporting this issue. If you have more details please let us know. 

New release is coming out by mid June. Stay Tuned!

I have to say that I'm happy that the quarantine response settings & the cloud stats will be functionally restored "eventually!" I guess we'll all have to use a little more patience until the new build is rolled-out.

I do hope the update issue that users are encountering is addressed also.

With the absence of an answer to my question, I have to assume Rob T. is no longer involved with the project would be a logical assumption on my part I think. If that's the case then his expert involvement will be sorely missed by me anyway.

Best wishes, Ritchie...
