Autoupdate to 903 went fine on Win10x64 1909.
Build 903 auto-updated OK here.
Latest HMP.A! working fine for me.
HMPA crashes Outlook on more than one computer Windows 10 Pro, nothing shows up in HMPA alert log. Outlook crashes 30 seconds after opening it, rebooting the computer does not help.
Disabling Load Library Code Mitigation for the Outlook Application is a workaround.

Thanks for reporting, I've send a PM with further request for details.
I can indeed send you a PM in Dutch, but it's mostly based on all of the problems reported in this thread. I have always been fascinated by HMPA ever when it was launched, back then it was only a tool that alerted about banking trojans and then you guys started to add anti-exploit mitigation. I did run it for a while but then it caused serious problems with Sandboxie.
But anyway, can you give some more info about the CookieGuard protection? How exactly does it work? I mean does it simply block access to a browser's profile folder? And great job in stopping the latest ransomware attack on companies, looks like it was another "supply chain attack", this shows how powerful HMPA/ Intercept X truly is.
I downloaded this version but cannot activate 30-day free trial. I inserted my email address but did not receive trial license key.
Is Code Cave Mitigation checked and running by default. My mouse might have clicked on it and unchecked it without me knowing it.
Yes. Code Cave Mitigation is checked and running when HMPA is installed.
Hi, that should directly activate, there is no email send with a license key.
Can you double check that your system allows hmpalert.exe access to internet? also keep in mind that if you have used a 30-day trial for HitmanPro then Alert won't pick that up as they share the same license key structure.
It should be, I manually added hmpalert.exe to windows firewall. Why is trial license greyed out? (see picture)
Because it show that an existing license has expired, so no Trial is available anymore because of that.
Did you have a now expired license for HitmanPro?
I did, it expired late last year.
Hi, I've send you a PM
Question: how does hitmanpro alert protect the browser in the free mode, because the chart also says real time protection is off in free mode.
Safe browsing and Keyboard encryption are available in free mode, so it protects the browser against banking trojans on the machine and keyloggers.
Hi, I have read that Sophos made an acquisition of Capsule8. Will there be any integration into HitmanPro.Alert/Intercept or no, you can't divulge? This is strictly out of curiosity, it's an interesting little nugget.
That's interesting, and I can see where Sophos would have an interest in that for enterprise security. But not sure how that would apply to Windows security in general and HMPA specifically?
Wondering whether these products could be re-configured to run on Linux enterprise environments. I find it intriguing and forward-thinking.
@RonnyT How do I transfer 1 of my 3 HitmanPro(.Alert) licenses (all in use) from an old laptop to a new laptop?
Just got HitmanPro.Alert 3.8.14 Build 907
Is this a known issue? Never had a problem running virtual box before. It's the last maintenance release of the previous version, but that shouldn't matter. I don't even get the startup GUI for selecting an OS.
Update to build 907.
Temporarily removed the system-level Syscall mitigation due to compatibility issues with some third-party security software. This new mitigation will return in an upcoming release.
Received build 907 upon reboot this morning.
Well, the latest version suppresses the message, but it doesn't allow Virtual Box to boot a VM on my Win7 32-bit system. Works okay on 64-bit systems. I guess not much testing is done anymore with 32-bit. I had to uninstall HMPA so VBox would function again. Otherwise VBox crashes every time you try to boot a VM without any kind of notification from HMPA . No wonder people don't always like to update. BTW, I wasn't getting any mitigation traps with v903 for VBox on my 64-bit OSes.
32-bit seems to be a problem child for HMPA. Maybe Sophos should stop supporting it.
