Furthermore, the following traffic–filtering service problems have been resolved in Dr.Web Desktop Security Suite and Dr.Web AV-Desk:

  • An issue that resulted in the SSL traffic of mail clients being scanned even though the corresponding option hadn't been enabled;
  • Defects that prevented the list of applications exempt from scanning from being transferred successfully during Dr.Web agent version 10 upgrades to version 11;
  • Problems that caused the service to terminate abnormally.

The following issues with the Dr.Web Security Space, Anti-virus for Windows setup module have been resolved:

  • A defect that caused the module to terminate abnormally if the profile folder's name in the Windows Registry contained invalid symbols;
  • A problem that prevented the product from being installed if a second installation module was already running;
