    Hey guys, we are getting very close!  Here is the latest version… there are just a few things that I need to finish up, like the new artwork on the How It Works form, and I also need to finish the Windows Firewall feature.  It is all ready to go, but I don’t want to actually automatically add rules until we are sure all of the bugs are fixed, because believe me, as many changes as there were in this version, there are most likely be a few small bugs.

    There are way too many changes under the hood and with the WLC implementation for me to describe, that it is probably best for you guys to just try it and see.  A few small things though, I removed the Advanced Snapshot feature for a lot of reasons.  First, we really need to get back to our roots and focus on VS’s proprietary tiny, customized whitelist… that really is what VS is all about.  The whole goal is to offer the smallest attack surface in the industry.  Also, there is no reason to analyze thousands of files with WLC.

    Also, brand new whitelists will be automatically generated and scanned with WLC.  Again, the whole goal is to keep the whitelist as small as possible.  Then again, with WLC and the other features we have implemented the last year or so, unwanted blocks should be pretty much non-existent.

    I hope to catch up on the posts here soon… it is great to see you “old guys” 😉.

    And yes, I would uninstall the standalone version of WLC now 😉.

    Thank you guys, have a great weekend!

    Edit time is 10 minutes. Not quite a sneeze but short nonetheless.

    Random observation:
    Just started my PC this morning and WLC icon got red in while the other programs loaded in the taskbar.
    When I clicked WLC all I could see was I think “sih…” as filename before the file changed from unsafe to save and WLC turned white again. It would be nice if WLC only turns red after the analysis is done and the file is still marked as unsafe.

    I think it was sih or shiclient.exe and another one both windows files from what I saw. Now they are not even listed in the WLC window even when I saw them 2 minutes before. No clue why :/

    +1.

    I noticed that too and concur that would be better that WLC icon turn red after analysis is completed if files found unsafe.

    Still wtb more time for edits.

    @Dan VS still gets sometimes the red “off” icon even when put on “always on aggressive” and “automatically deactivate after X minutes” disabled.

    Since I was running FF sandboxed for streaming music there was internet for sure. FF was “yellow” under webapps so VS should have known better 😉

    Patching Guild Wars 2 and also got a red VS “Off” Icon. Internet worked since music stream was ok and the patching was without errors…
    “Always on” seems to not like some of my games 😀

    Hey guys, I will catch up on the posts I missed asap, but I wanted to give you guys a quick update.

    There were 2 bugs that Andy found (I think he is on here too) that I just finished fixing.  One was a bug where WLC did not auto allow certain files when it was supposed to.  The other had to do with a scenario where a system process spawns a vulnerable process that is located in Program Files.  Both were a little tricky to fix, but I believe they are both fixed now… and the really cool thing is that it cleaned up some code that needed to be cleaned up anyway.  I am going to test for a few more hours just to be sure, then I will release 5.54.  After this, I believe we are completely out of the woods with VS 5.50 and will just have some usability / visual tweaks to work on, but these tweaks will be easy and will not introduce any significant new bugs.

    We need to start thinking about what the defaults for WLC should be.  I think creating a user skill level window is probably the best answer… here is a little more info about what I have in mind for this.

    https://voodooforums.com/forums/topic/idea-wlc-blocking-mode/

    Please let me know what you guys think!

    Also, I set the edit timeout for the forums to 60 minutes, the default was either 5 or 10, I do not remember which.  Anyway, I will set the timeout to whatever you guys think it should be, but for now I just set it at 60.

    Thank you guys, have a great weekend!

    Hey guys, here is 554, it should be good to go, but if you find anything, you know where to find me ;).

    BTW, I made a couple of optimizations on the WLC analysis machines as well… I hope I did not introduce a bug that will cause the cloud end of WLC to crash, but I will keep an eye on it.

    You should be able to install over the top, but if you run into problems, please either perform a clean install or reset your whitelist.

    Just installed 5.54 over the top, all is well.

    Going to the beach for the afternoon, I’ll check it out later.

    BTW thanks Dan for the extra Edit timeout.

    I’ll continue on the other thread.

     

    BTW, lovely to see the “Quote” action pick up only the highlighted text, much better than having to carve large chunks off the post 🙂

    Hi Dan

    Hope that you are well and planning some time off over the Festive Period…after all of the overtime you have been putting in getting VS to where it is now?

    Well, boringly… ;o) …5.54 Beta has been installed over the top on both systems, has been given the usual wellie and at present is running as smooth as silk.

    Will keep checking…but IMHO…looking good for a formal, primte time release.

    Respect, Baldrick

    VecchioScarpone: Here it is: First on top right.

    curious, Edit is not listed here?

    [EDIT] Oh now I see, the Edit “button” only appears immediately after a post and stays active or available only n numbers of minutes, and now Dan increased to 60.
