    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!

    Thank you guys, I appreciate that!  Yeah, if resetting the whitelist fixed the issue then I think we are in the clear.  Also, whenever VS performs a snapshot scan, everything is automatically synced up, so if it gets out of sync while we are working out the bugs, you can click the “refresh” icon on the WhitelistCloud tab, and it should cleanup and sync everything.  We are getting close, thank you guys for all of your help!

    Krusty, are you running 5.51 or 5.52?  This should have been fixed in 5.52, but if not I will take a look at it, thank you!

    Dan,

    Definitely running 5.52.  by the way, when I went to my account there were four or five instances of that PC and only one of the other.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    I looked at my account and had all 10 for the same PC and cleared them all except the one dated today!

    @Dan is there a way to send “not safe”files to you via the UI? I have one here which is from BleachBit 3.0.

    How the heck do we attach images?????????

    Hope your Gracie is doing OK! ^^

    Stay safe, not paranoid!

    That actually might have been the reason VS did not register properly… we need to get that under control.  So yeah, I would remove all of the devices except for the one that is active.  Either way, we can keep an eye on it, thank you!

    Like TH was saying, attaching images is a PITA.  Hopefully we can figure out how to make that easier soon.

    Believe it or not, I actually have not been manually whitelisting any of the false positives in the cloud, except for the dismhost.exe false positives.  So basically, all of the WLC results everyone has seen have all been automatic verdicts.

    I probably can at some point, but I am not sure we need to yet.  I built a little stand alone app that lets me manage the database extremely quickly.  But I am hoping that the false positives will be so low that we will not need to manually whitelist any files… because you never know, we might accidentally whitelist something we should not.  That, and it does not hurt for the user to encounter one or two Not Safe files, so they will quickly understand how WLC works.

    But if we ever do start manually whitelisting files, I will just need the hash like you provided ;).  Thank you!

    That looks great, just click on the Not Safe at the top for the Webroot dll, then click Whitelist Item, and you are all set!

    No idea how to attach images directly without first uploading them elsewhere.
