Dr.Web 10.0 for Linux released

November 27, 2014

Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web has released Dr.Web 10.0 for Linux. The new version supports a wider range of Linux distributions and incorporates an HTTP monitor and abundant enhancements which make it even more reliable and user-friendly.

The new component—the HTTP monitor SpIDer Gate—significantly improves the security of machines protected with Dr.Web for Linux. The monitor scans inbound HTTP traffic and blocks the transfer of malicious code. Also, SpIDer Gate operates as an office control, blocking access to unwanted sites, which helps companies avoid exposure to Internet threats and contributes to higher employee productivity.

The SpIDer Guard file monitor boasts enhanced scanning of running processes for neutralising active threats such as Windows malware launched via Wine.

Now Dr.Web Anti-virus for Linux supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, 6.5 and 5.10, as well as CentOS Linux 7, 6.5 and 5.10.

Furthermore, visual and audio event notifications are now available on a larger number of desktop environments, and support for Dr.Web Enterprise Security Suite 10.0 has been enhanced. Users can also now start several scanning sessions simultaneously.

Users of Dr.Web Anti-virus for Linux must use the updated distribution to install the program.
