Major component update in Dr.Web for Windows

June 24, 2024

Doctor Web is updating a number of software components in Windows for Dr.Web Desktop Security Suite 12.0, Dr.Web Server Security Suite 12.0, and Dr.Web Security Space 12.0. The update improves the applications’ performance and the anti-virus protection quality as well as Dr.Web’s compatibility with the operating system and other software.

The changes being introduced include:

  • Dr.Web Net filtering service, responsible for intercepting traffic, now supports all relevant encryption standards, including those unavailable in the protected OS, which increases traffic filtering effectiveness.
  • Adjustments to the Agent’s UI ensure easier and more consistent navigation in administrator mode.
  • Bluetooth device blocking is now more reliable.
  • Email templates are now scanned more thoroughly. The option allowing files in archives to be excluded from scanning by using file masks is available again for Dr.Web Scanning Engine.
  • Adjustments have been made to the way SpIDer Guard responds to threats in locations on the exceptions list.

The update will be downloaded and installed automatically; however, a system reboot will be required.

If you’re still unfamiliar with Dr.Web, use the demo version to try out its features and get first-hand experience with the high level of security it provides, before purchasing a license:
