    I'm using the premium and just wonder if it ever auto updates? Just checked the log for updates and shows that last time was when I did manual 4 days ago.

    do you mean the updating of the virus database , or program updates? since they have dropped the bitdefender and avira engine and replaced it with their own inhouse kunpeng engine , it does not update that often ( I do not know how many times a week ) the program updates usually have 1 , sometimes 2 times a month. even when you have update to new version ASAP ( premium ) enabled it takes a couple of days , before the program upgrades to the newest version. I usually check their website to see if there is newer version available.

    That won't be an issue as the majority of detections are cloud based. They don't seem to update their own local signatures that often.

    I have been using 360 TS on at least one system for years. But now when log shows every auto update failed I must wonder how good is it now.

    Unless every Virus Definition update fails, it's nothing to worry about. They only update the definitions for their KunPeng engine occasionally. Most of the detections are cloud based, so the infrequent updates does not matter, unless you are regularly using your system while offline.

    It fails every auto update so went back to free version on one system. On rest will go back to other AV. Still like how 360 TS works and wife will keep on her machine to.

    I want to know what the actual function/purpose of it is so I can determine whether to give it internet access or not... ie: whether it is part of their bloatware/marketing shenanigans or a relevant aspect of security/protection. I cant see that on the page you linked to.

    Thanks anyways though.

    If you are using 360 consider enabling detection of PUP's and enabling upload of unknown files to their cloud. Very useful in cases where you encounter new samples of malware.

    I was testing 360 today after a very long time and it blocked some stealer and ransomware samples with behaviour detection and then picked up the binaries with the cloud a couple minutes later (thanks to that upload option i turned on). Sweet !

    Also the pop-ups and other unwanted stuff they give you is not really a huge deal and can be easily disabled/switched off from the settings.

    Does 360 free use hardware virtualization because i dont see it in any of the options and i have read about it in a thread from last year on MT forums.

    It seems its a bit unstable in the VM i am testing it in.... Sometimes it uploads stuff to cloud detects it as malicious but doesn't stop the malware which has already made it to memory especially stuff like some RAT's and stealer samples which stick around in memory (some dont have a persistence). Also it seems to allow its network communications.Unsure if hardware VT-X affects protection with the HIPS/BB.

    Turning on the kungpeng antivir engine seems to be able to detect some previously undetected samples but BB seems to block some behavior of it when the malware was active trying to create persistence.

    So that engine is definitely useful to install i think.

    Every release aside from this one is listed on their website. They must have forgotten to update the webpage.

    Usually, yes.
    But now the release info has not been displayed since v.1324. That`s 2 versions back.

    Another update today, .1359, just a couple of days after .1357. I guess it was a correction of some kind, Still no changelog.

    .1362 now, and still no changelog. That is probably why "mood" from update team isn`t reporting the updates.

    Yet another update, .1371 is the version now. But on their site they still announce .1324 as the latest update.

    That is now 4 versions ago.
    Wonder what`s going on?!
