I don't get a prompt. How do I turn that on?
Are you sure your keystroke encryption is turned on? Mine looks like the image below when i'm typing. It covers up what i'm typing when using some Social Media Sites.
Yes, it's enabled, and can be confirmed by looking at the settings, as well as the border around the browser that highlights when I hover my cursor on the upper edge. That notification shows "Safe browsing; Exploit mitigations; Keystroke Encryption".
Funny thing, I just looked down as I was typing this, and now I'm seeing the encrypting "prompt" as I type. Hadn't noticed that before. It fades out almost instantly when I pause typing, so I have to be looking directly at that spot to notice it.
Open HMP.A > Safety notification (bottom-center) > Colored window border > Show live keystroke encryption
Is anyone having an issue with the Anti-Malware component?
Mine (under Build 779) is showing as enabled but when I attempt to run a scan...a few seconds after the start of the scan I get a 'Failed' label appearing to replace the 'Anti-Malware' label in the main GUI. Have never seen that before and cannot work out why it is happening. Have noticed it before but then I have not run a scan for a week or so henc enot really sure as to when the issue started. Do not have the 1903 WIndows build installed BTW.
Thanks in advance, Baldrick
Hmm - don't normally run manual scans on that machine, but just checked and have the same issue here! Win 10 Home v1803.
Edit: Not happening on my Win 10 Pro v1809 machine with v3.8.0 build 839 CTP1, scan runs but I do see that the Anti-Malware panel there has a 'Cloud Protection' that is 'Offline'?
That's it! Thanks!
Talk about a hidden feature! That should really be moved into the general settings dialogue.
Do you have HMP installed locally?
I can run the scan from build 779, but I have HMP installed locally. If it is not installed, HMP.A will download and run it. Maybe there is an issue with the download process?
I have Hitman Pro Alert and tonight when tried to scan my computer for malware, the process failed before it began. I repeatedly tried to scan with the same result: Failed. I also restarted my computer, but after restarting, the scan failed. Can anyone tell me why this is happening? Thanks in advance for all suggestions/ideas.
We used to get frequent posts from the HMPA team. Not very often these days !
I think most of the active dev support here has moved over into the "beta" thread. https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/hitmanpro-alert-beta.394398/
For urgent support on the release version it's probably best to contact email@example.com
No, I do not as far as I know. In the past, I believe that it has been downloaded as and when I run the scan...but for some reason it would appear that it no longer does that. Perhaps the source location has changed and it has not been updated in the HMP.A program?
In a way I am glad that I am not the only one have the issue, unless those who are suffering from this are all suffering the same issue with their systems. As I think was said earlier, and perhaps elsewhere, hopefully Erik & Mark will be along to sort this out.
That could also be caused by an outbound firewall rule or a flaky DNS server preventing HMPA from phoning home. There have been times when I could not access hitmanpro.com while using OpenDNS, but after switching to another DNS server that corrected the problem.
Thanks everyone for your replies. I have sent an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and as I receive information, I'll post it here.
I tried today with HMP installed and the scan completed successfully. I don't mind HMP installed as it is scheduled a scan once a day.
I'm sure @Baldrick is right. There is a new problem here, for the Lomans to sort out.
I might try downloading HMP and installing it to see if that 'resolves' the issue...but I would prefer not to have to to. I quite like the notion of downloading what is requried when it is required.
EDIT: Can confirm that downloading a copy of HMP to the local system (and making sure it remains on disk after the inital scan) resolves the 'issue'.
So my guess that something has recently changed in HMP.A by design or due to a bug in the url that is called when a scan is requested AND HMP is not found locally, is most likely correct...but would be good if Erik or Marko could confirm/advise either way.
I uninstalled my local copy of HMP, and now get the "Failed" error when I try to run malware scan from HMP.A. Something has definitely broken.
At the moment I can't resolve www.hitmanpro.com to an IP address.
See here. I can resolve to an IP address but cannot download.
What IP do you come up with?
Having much the same issue: the HMP.A manual scan fails as soon as I select it.
I did manage to download HMP from the Sophos site. However, when I clicked to run it, the HMP window opened, started an automatic update, and then closed. Tried it several times until it seems to have finally worked now, as the HMP GUI has come back, ready for action.
Opened HMP.A and I see that the "Anti-malware" tile on the left now says "Updating ..."
UPDATE: FWIW, the download took place via Internet Explorer 11. Also, several minutes later the HMP.A GUI still claims to be "Updating ..."
IP address doesn't seem to work!
I arrive here when I go to HMP site
FYI It's that time of the year again. Lots of special days in the Netherlands (yesterday it was Kingsday), holiday time for lots of people, etc. Of course I cannot speak for Surfright. Hopefully one of them will jump in here soon.
So when I tried to run HMP locally again with an older installer that I had archived (3.8.0 build 295), it proceeded with an automatic update to the latest (3.8.11 build 300). At the next prompt I selected to install a copy locally, with a desktop icon and the context menu for Windows explorer.
All good again. Can run on demand whenever.
I don't know what is up with the remote scan option, but I hope they get it sorted soon!
