    The outgoing request is an unencrypted HTTP request which downloads a small plain file with the newest version number. If you are curious try Wireshark out and sniff the traffic(tested). You should try to start multiple instances of Ghostpress and sniff the local listener of the first application and then you will see the multiple instance check(not tested).

    We put a high priority on not using any internet connection in this security tool!

    The next update is estimated to be released on the weekend. We will post the changelog here as well.

    The new update is released. The current changelog:
    Version 0.9
    +Added warning for critical detections
    +3 widget styles: Big widget, small widget and icon only
    +Delay protection (harder to identify users by their typing style)
    +Indonesian translation
    #Possible security risk due invalid protection detection fixed
    #Bug fix of the crash after pressing a key within 2,5 seconds after disabling the widget animation
    #Render bug when switching to the minimized windows by Alt-Tab switch fixed
    #Changed the multi-instance detection without using a listening local socket
    #Better Polish translation
    #Minor French translation improvements
    #Minor UI improvements

    If you have any new or still the same problems then let us know. We will fix the issues as soon as possible.

    Thanks for checking this out, I didn't realize that this behavior was unintended. Firefox also does this, but I have no idea why.

    We are working on the keyboard compatibitly for the next version.

    @Rasheed187 This looks like a normal way Windows detects multiple instances.

    Same problem, but I'm on w7 x86.
    French canadian keyboard.
    Can't say which version I have, I got it from SnapFiles.
    Tried to d/l from the authour website but I was only getting a screen asking for a Paypal donation.
    No way to download at all.

    There is a download link here - http://www.hendrik-schiffer.com/ghostpress.html - just above the Donate link. It looks like a zipped file download.

    Here's what I'm seeing:
    upload_2016-6-6_7-56-6.png
    Clicking on the blue button gets to the Donate page.

    Just above this, there's a blank area on which it says the content has been rejected because of non-respect of utilization rules. (freely translated in english from french)

    This is very strange...

    We changed the website after the update a bit. When you click "Download" it opens two links. The main link is the direct download and the other link is a new page which explains the importance of donations. We hope to get more people to donate a bit money, since the hosting prices are paid with our own money.

    @fblais We are working to make more keyboard layouts to work with Ghostpress.

    Works ok with Firefox.


    Thanks hsdev.

    As long as blocking this behavior with HIPS or firewall doesn't break apps, all is fine I guess.

    YA know if they really want to target you , they will pull up outside your door an capture your keystrokes via electromagnetic waves.

    But then they whoever they are would have to be targeting you personally.
    Only cure is to put you keyboard and Computer in A Faraday cage tied to ground.:geek:

    @fblais We have added a manual download link on the page.

    Thanks. Just checked and it worked with Chrome this time.
    Is the keyboard layout problem fixed yet?

    OK cool. BTW, is there any reason why it won't run when sandboxed with Sandboxie?

    We are working on a solution to make more keyboard layouts work.

    The system intern used API's (Active-X, ..) may gets blocked while using a Sandbox such as Comodo Sandbox.

    If you have a beta version you'd like to get tested with improved keyboard layout support, don't hesitate! :)

    Best,
    François

    OK I see. Of course I know it's normal that a lot of security tools won't work when running sandboxed, but Ghostpress doesn't seem to make use of low level blocking methods, so that's why I asked.

    @fblais Contact us over the page and we can work together on a solution.

    @Rasheed187 Inside of a virtual machine it should work for the virtual machine.

    The upcoming version will contain the long awaited white list to fix rare compatibility problems.

    This program is absolutely useless to me as the minimize button disappears as soon as the program starts and all I 'm lefty with is the splashscreen that won't go away?

    Thanks.
    I was merely offering my help in trying some test version if you need to check out with people that said they have issues with the keyboard layout.
    Is this what you have in mind?
