  • Improved routines for interaction with update servers and mirrors.

Changes made to the Control Service:

  • An issue that prevented system restart from being initiated via a corresponding Dr.Web notification under a standard user account has been resolved.
  • An issue that prevented the service from starting if the Dr.Web Scanning Engine operation was disrupted upon launch has been resolved.
  • Protection components status information and the updating schedule are now saved correctly when sleep mode is toggled on and off.
  • Faster threat detection and neutralisation.

Changes made to the scanner:

  • An issue involving a custom scan list being cleared after system restart has been resolved.

  • The text for license expiry and device block notifications has been corrected.

Changes made to the Agent:

  • The option to block devices by a specific bus is now available in the Devices section.
  • The information about detected malware also includes data about complex threats that have been disarmed during a background scan.
  • The Quarantine Manager provides information about objects whose recovery requires a system restart.
  • An issue that interfered with recovering files that were moved to the Quarantine from a disk root directory has been resolved.
  • Also corrected, was a defect that caused the UI to freeze if multiple threats were neutralised in a short period of time.
  • Minor Quarantine Manager UI tweaks have been introduced.
  • The update also delivers minor UI tweaks in the statistics section.
  • The UI elements are more clearly visible when high contrast Windows themes are being used.
  • System restart prompts are no longer displayed to users who don't have sufficient privileges to perform the action.
  • An issue interfering with scrolling through the list of available languages has been fixed.

Changes made to Dr.Web Anti-virus for Windows servers setup:

  • Detection of existing ESET anti-virus installations has been improved, so users can be warned about compatibility issues when Dr.Web installation is being started.
  • Now Dr.Web installation can't be started if the product was previously removed without a system restart.

Changes made to Dr.Web Device Guard for Windows:

  • Now selected device classes can be blocked for a specific bus.

The update will be performed automatically; however, a system reboot will be required.
