Just released: Dr.Web for Android v. 9.01.6 and Dr.Web for Android Light v. 9.00.1

October 15, 2014

Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web has updated Dr.Web for Android and Dr.Web for Android Light to versions 9.01.6 and 9.00.1, respectively. The updates deliver fixes of known defects.

Flaws resulting in the possible abnormal termination of both products have been corrected.

To decrease false positives, Dr.Web for Android Light has had its unlocking routine for ransomware-compromised phones redesigned. Now to unlock a device, connect and immediately disconnect it from the plugged-in charger; then connect and instantly disconnect the headphones; and then shake the device vigorously.

The update also provides Persian language support for Dr.Web for Android Light.

The updated anti-viruses are available on Google Play (Dr.Web for Android. Comprehensive protection, Dr.Web for Android. Life License, and Dr.Web Anti-virus Light) as well as from Doctor Web's site.

The update will be downloaded and installed automatically. If automatic updates are disabled on the device, go to Google Play; choose Dr.Web Anti-virus, Dr.Web Anti-Virus Life license or Dr.Web for Android Light on the application list; and click "Update”.

To perform an update via Doctor Web's site, download the updated distribution. If the option “New application version” is enabled, a new version notification will be displayed whenever the virus databases have been updated. You can start the download directly from this dialogue box.
