Glasswire v1.2.121 Released (November 29, 2017)
Glasswire v2.0.78 Released (December 14, 2017)
This update caused problems for me (OTT install, FW set to 'Ask To Connect'). I could not access any web pages so I had to restore an image.
Have posted on their forum. Maybe it's some interaction with other security softs, but I had no warnings, nor have I had issues before this.
Just a warning to others to be cautious, and consider imaging before updating.
"Version 2 not working here"
Thanks @mood. You beat me to it .
Thanks. Didn't know about the new VT feature, activated that now.
If VT scanning option is enabled does it means (according to new policy of VT) that our data goes to VT...right?
Yes, but i guess only in the case of "unknown files".
I assume that Glasswire calculates the hash and uploads it (the hash) to VT. If there is a score, it is displayed in the Glasswire-GUI.
If the file is unknown to VT (no score), Glasswire uploads the whole file and is awaiting the result of VT.
And the uploaded file will be shared with the information security community.
This has been happening to me since the very first beta and I have reported via email direct to the Team, as requested...and nothing back from them. NOT even an acknowledgement of the fact that I had raised and issue. From my point of view their SUpport really stinks and is very amateur in realtion to launching a beta.
Will be interesting to see if they react to this via the forum...I live in hope.
Can't see where though ...
@Baldrick, see @mood's post #229, which contains the link to my post in their Forum - a clean install (and firewall reset) solved it for me.
Dunno about direct support, but I have found they are pretty quick to respond on the Forum.
Thanks for the response...and to all...my apologies for the vitriolic post...have a bad cold and was just feeling depressed that Glasswire, that has in the past been so stable & good, is misbehaviing on my system (must be a local thing as not many seem to be reporting something similar ).
Thanks for the suggestions but have already tried these and many more and still cannot get it to work properly; whjich is strange as when I revert back to v1.2...it works flawlessly...so go figure.
Also, Daniel (thank you, The Man) has managed to hook me up with someone at Glasswire and I have sent them my experiences and hopefully they will be able to figure what is wrong on my system.
Again, thanks fortrying to assist...it is much appreciated.
Have a great weekend.
Seems like they made some nice changes. Does it now work about the same as WFC, when it comes to protection against unauthorized rules?
For example the result "VirusTotal 0/68" can be seen there:
Thanks, found that under Usage>All>Apps column (double-click app). And also under Firewall tab ... nice.
