Dr.Web bot for Telegram updated
June 21, 2016
These include a new main menu which now has only three items: /help, /settings and /feedback. At the same time, a custom Cancel key for instruction /feedback now makes it easier to discard a feedback message.
Furthermore, to improve security, the bot will now check a message after it has been edited by its author (e.g., a harmless URL is replaced with a malicious link).
Now, while a file or link is being checked, the status "typing…" is displayed in the chat header (in standard mode).
In private mode, new users need to select a language for communicating with the bot. Users can evaluate the Dr.Web bot on the StoreBot site. This information is also displayed to users in a corresponding notification.
To use the bot, find the Telegram account @DrWebBot (or go to telegram.me/drwebbot) and send it a file or a link. The bot will check it for viruses and report on the results.
