Dr.Web self-protection becomes more vigilant

November 17, 2009

Doctor Web updated components of the Dr.Web SelfPROtect module used in its single-user anti-virus solutions. Self-protection of Dr.Web anti-viruses has been enhanced with the integrity control.

Now if the self-protection is enabled, all unsigned processes attempting to start from the anti-virus installation directory will get into the untrusted list. If the digital signature of the process starting from the Dr.Web installation directory has been corrupted, the new feature will not allow the process to start. If an integrity breach is detected, a user will receive a corresponding notification from the anti-virus.

The self-protection mechanism of Dr.Web single-user anti-virus solutions will be updated automatically You will need to reboot your system after updating.
