    Release Notes
    What's new in Acronis True Image 2021 for Windows?
    Acronis True Image 2021 for Windows has become a cyber protection product with enhanced backup and protection capabilities:
    • .tibx archives can now be mounted, moved, renamed, and converted to the .vhd format.
    • Added an option to validate only the latest backup version to speed up the regular validation process.
    • Versions of backups to Acronis Cloud now can be cleaned up from the Acronis True Image console.
    • Backup replication to the Acronis Cloud now supports resuming, which helps save time for those with an unstable internet connection. In case of a connection issue, the replication of backups to the Acronis Cloud stops. When the connection is restored, the replication continues from the point where it stopped, to prevent duplication of the already replicated data.
    • The Web Restore page was redesigned to make the Anywhere Access to cloud data faster, more secure, and convenient.
    To better protect our users, Acronis True Image has received additional security functionalities to shield data from any type of malware:
    • Enhancements to our real-time protection can block not only ransomware, but other types of malware, too.
    • The on-demand antivirus scans can search at-risk file types, or your entire system, for viruses.
    • Web filtering protects you from malicious websites.
    • Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and WebEx meetings are protected from intrusion and theft of personal information.
    We also decided to add a security bulletin to the release notes, to make sure we are totally transparent:
    • [SEC-1766] Local privilege escalation was possible due to improper soft link handling. The issue was assigned CVE-2020-9451, CVSS score 5.9 (medium). We want to thank HackerOne researcher @mjoensen for reporting this to us.
    • [SEC-1767] Possible denial of service due to insecure folder permissions. The issue was assigned CVE-2020-9452, CVSS score 4.2 (medium). We want to thank HackerOne researcher @mjoensen for reporting this to us.
    • [SEC-2071] Local privilege escalation was possible due to insecure folder permissions. The issue was assigned CVE-2020-15496, CVSS score 6.4 (medium). We want to thank HackerOne researcher @theevilbit for reporting this to us.
    • [SEC-2072] Local privilege escalation was possible due to an insecure service configuration. The issue was assigned CVE-2020-15495, CVSS score 6.0 (medium).
    Known issues and limitations of this version
    • TI-172086 In the "Version chain" backup scheme, a differential backup is created instead of a full one on the second backup launch.
    • TI-173652 No error message is shown for recovery of a USB drive backup from Acronis Cloud if the USB drive is disconnected in the process.
    • TI-203830 Cleaned-up data is shown with the wrong size after cleaning up one or more non-last versions of backups to the Acronis Cloud.
    • TI-198001 Full antivirus scans do not detect PE (portable executable) malware files that are located in .zip archives.
    • TI-196935 Quarantining a downloaded malware file fails with the error "Failed to add to quarantine."
