Let's make it readable for you then shelll we?
When will a public beta of HMPA (aka HitmanPro.Alert) be made available via "http://test.hitmanpro.com/" named hmpalert3b<number>.exe which when installing includes a version of HitmanPro.sys with a newly signed certificate.
See post #11087 and the replied in #11091.
Then again if you want to put things in prospective perhaps HitmanPro.Alert beta's might be better served via a website called http://test.hitmanpro-alert.com/" and not "http://test.hitmanpro.com" and perhaps to make it more official make it https://test.hitmanpro.com" and https://test.hitmanpro-alert.com" with a proper certificate by Surfright. That way you might/could make it clear to those security minded that the website serving these beta's is an official website of Surfright's.
I am also well aware "www.surfright.nl" does not have beta's for HMPA.
Sophos has made a new website: https://www.surfright.com
Currently surfright.nl and hitmanpro.com still point to the old one.
Right after installing the latest release, build 557, all of my Chrome extensions crash. I haven't figured out yet if it's one or a combination of the mitigation settings. But if I disable all mitigations for Chrome, it will start working normally. You are welcome to have a look or I can provide any necessary information. Chrome 53 64-bit, latest release.
This is on Windows 10 Pro AU, EIS, HMPA and AppGuard.
This looks so cool ! Really like it.
Whats current license model. https://www.surfright.com/en-us/surfright/buy-now.aspx
Does HitmanPro.Alert license satisfy HitmanPro (stand-alone).
Now i'm unable to run Chrome (53, x64) due to ublock origin crash!...but at least other issues are solved (Exploit test tool shows stack+branch trace as expected in ROP-Call precedeed VirtualProtect()/ROP - VirtualProtect() via Call gadgets ), EDGE is working flawless (it is the browser that i'm using right now)
same here (Alert 3 alone!)
This is an elementary question but in order to avoid license key becoming deactivated due to too many re-installations, can you simply install a new build over the pre-existing one? It's not necessary to uninstall the prior version first, is it? Is keystroke encryption available in Edge yet?
Referring to what you are talking about helps.
There is a lot posted in this thread, not everyone could have guessed that you were talking about #11087 and #11091. Not me.
Referring (and linking) helps.
To make matters more complicated, the previously mentioned hitmanpro37.sys does not seem to exist on my Windows 7 x64 system.
Is this different for Windows 7 and Windows 10?
Or is this different if one installs both HMP.A and HMP separately, instead of installing HMP.A and then HMP.A downloading HMP?
Yes, you can simply install a new build over the pre-existing one.
No, there is no need to uninstall the prior version first.
yes, i've never uninstalled Alert
*ops, sorry Stupendous man
I am also seeing this same issue on my system with the latest Chrome 64-bit dev version (54.0.2840.8)...
The problem mentioned at this post still exists. I hope it's solvable.
I haven't had any serious issue with HMP.A for a long time,
but this evening I installed build 557, over the top of build 556, and upps:
Could not log on anymore, just a black screen and a mouse-pointer.
Luckly taskmanger was working, so I could remove HMP.A
I installed build 557 again and could logon, but when opening chrome, several add-ons crashed...
rebooted and had the black screen again.
Finally I had to remove build 557 from my office-machine. (Xeon 1145 V3)
Everything looks fine except .Alert's new price.
Yikes. Time to examine the contents of my piggy bank soon. The website looks nice, though.
Since the release of Windows 10 Anniversary Update I have this snagging feeling HitmanPro.Alert has entered the permanent beta status...
Like some of those Google projects....
Am I the only one thinking this?
I mean nice to know that "www.surfright.com" was made by Sofos. Frankly a non-issue to me as a paying costumer as I still lack a solid lead of a stable version coming of age any time soon(R).
There have been more periodes of time in which we had a lot of beta's or pre-releases before we got the stable version. This period is not that exceptional.
I think what is different, is that this time matters were a bit more complicated because of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update 'surprise', and because Erik and Mark have been away for a couple of weeks.
........ and they are also having to merge Surfright with Sophos. All things considered, I think they are doing very well.
OK seriously now, what problem are you having with the current "release" and/or the betas?
build 557 has definitively something strange also with EDGE because now i have a lot of microsoftedgecp.exe crash in event log viewer (module involved → wpaxholder.dll, exception code 0xc0000602, offset 0x00000000000046e9// msmpeg2vdec.dll, code 0x80000001, offset 0x0000000000036277) (anyway no visible crash)
HitmanPro.Alert 3.5.2 build 558 Pre-Release
Fixed crash in 64-bit Chrome and Edge
Perhaps.. I cant see how much of surprise it really was or if it was more of a gamble by Sofos/HitmaPro whether Microsoft would push changes through instead this time.
Since most of the "compatible" beta's work to some extend but lacking the "full" HitmanPro scanning part one could opt to remove the public download part of the Hitmanpro.sys plus associated bits during installation of HMPA and make a lighter version of a HMPA-beta available.
Like Microsoft has EMET 5.5(some version) and Windows Defender.
Sofos could perhaps make HitmanPro.Alert more EMET function-wise and leave the other bits to it's HitmanPro counterpart.
What do you mean by "lacking the full HitmanPro scanning part"? HitmanPro is an on-demand scanner. HMP.Alert downloads the latest version of HitmanPro whenever a scan is started in HMP.Alert. The standalone version of HitmanPro can be installed separately (and activated with the same license) if preferred, but what is the advantage to that?
