Not seen any update but is this resolved yet or is it a Webroot problem?
Not sure. Some report it does work with Webroot
It seems to work OK with me, I get the browser popup on Chrome and hmpalert.exe is showing as allow (not monitor) in WSA. So I assume it is working and I am protected?
That doesn't say anything about the ID shield, if you want to check that click on the little wheel/gear next to Identity Protection on the main WSA screen.
Then click the Application protection tab and make sure Alert is not set as Deny.
I am again facing same problem after today's BitDefender latest update
IE working without any problem but facing issue with Firefox and Chrome and Opera
I am getting the same problem as Swarup. I have an updated Bitdefender and I just installed Hitman Pro Alert today and it is giving me false positives with firefox.
I'm not sure if this has to do with Bitdefender or one of my plugins like NoScript (which always gives a false positive with Adwcleaner) or Stylish, etc...
For some reason there is no uninstall for me for hitmanpro alert ,also i found out it is not compatible with bitdefender internet security having problems try to remove hitmanpro alert.
With hitmanpro alert with bitdefender internet security it always shows a ribbon saying the browser is infected if i remove bitdefender internet security the message goes away.
My guess is the wallet is causing false positives i have already done offline scans with 3 cd bootable av/malware scanners.
Alert version 2.6.2 should be compatible with Bitdefender. Are you running that version?
I just installed it. Working fine now, thanks erik
Actually now there seems to be another problem. If I click on Firefox it works fine but when I click on Firefox through sandboxie I get the message again. (And yes I deleted the contents of the box before trying it)
If you use Sandboxie you have to add \Device\NamedPipe\hmpalert to Full Access.
Ahh ok thanks for letting me know.
Found a bug. Hitman Pro Alert 2.5 won't allow agcp.exe to close after all instances if Microsoft Silverlight have stopped. See this page:
I confirmed this with Process Explorer by uninstalling Hitman Pro Alert.
I use a website very frequently that uses Silverlight, and I'll end up with dozens of agcp.exe's running in task manager.
How do you get HitmanPro Alert to work with Sandboxie? I tried adding the string above but sandboxed Firefox will not start.
From post Guest10 Sandboxieforum:
Per Sandbox: Sandbox Settings > Resource Access > File Access > Full Access
See my post above for all sandboxes.
Hmmmmm, still doesn't work.
I hate to keep reporting problems but when I open Firefox alone again the same problem ensues. I think Bitdefender may have had another conflicting update.
Can you make a X or something in the green popup so we can close it and we don't need to wait for it to disappear to access to the buttons behind it?
Will have a look in our lab tomorrow. Perhaps you run a weird extension?
Already checked that in our source control for Alert 3, might get backported to version 2 branch.
Only few hours left ...
The only way to get the latest BETA for HMA is through your sig?
No, his sig points to version 2.5 :http://dl.surfright.nl/hmpalert25.exe
This is the link for version 2.6 :http://dl.surfright.nl/hmpalert26.exe
But maybe you can wait for another version:
HitmanPro.Alert version 3 stops exploit attacks from cybercriminals and (foreign nation-state) hackers:
Announcing: HitmanPro.Alert version 3
HitmanPro.Alert version 3
Version 3 introduces exploit mitigation and anti-espionage technologies
HitmanPro.Alert 3 stops exploit attacks that abuse known and unknown weaknesses in widely used software, like web browsers, plug-ins, Java and Office applications. Vulnerabilities in current or outdated software can no longer be abused to silently install unsolicited software or malware.
The exploit mitigation technologies in HitmanPro.Alert 3 focus on the attack technology that attempt to deliver malware. Without affecting normal computer use, HitmanPro.Alert automatically strengthens the security posture of applications and stops the execution of typical processor instruction sequences required for exploits to run arbitrary code.
HitmanPro.Alert keeps an eye on program execution flow, detects heap-sprays and stops attacks that e.g. redirect exception handling to run malicious code. With full support for 64-bit applications, it also blocks sophisticated return-oriented programming (ROP) attacks, which are designed to bypass DEP and ASLR memory protections.
As we like to call it: EMET on Steroids!
Also new are anti-espionage features that keeps sensitive information safe by encrypting keystrokes at the operating system kernel level. In addition, the computer user will be alerted when the webcam is (secretly) accessed for remote spying.
HitmanPro.Alert is designed for home users as well as for IT professionals, and runs on 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, as well as Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 (R2) and Windows Server 2012 (R2).
