    Yes, I don't like this also. I guess that in this case vulnerability is not very serious, otherwise they would probably push update to everyone.

    I just manually run an update and restarted my system and got KIS updated to patch B.

    I've had Kaspersky take over 15 days to update.

    I have just checked my Kaspersky version and found out that patch B is already installed here. I don't know when it arrived here because I don't really care when patches are delivered to my machine. I have always been a patient guy.:)

    I really need some help here.

    We are several who have Kaspersky Internet Security installed on both win 10 and win 8.1. on different machines. Everything has worked great for over a year now, but then came the new version: kis21.3.10.391nb_26045
    After installing this, login to online banking no longer works with either the English or Norwegian version. We use BankID. Has anyone experienced this and perhaps found a solution? Kaspersky does not find out what does this, so now we are stuck.

    define "no longer works". what's the problem you're having?

    did you try going back to the previous version? if you did, did you manage to reproduce the same issue?

    I can not log into the online bank using my password any more. It says there is an error.

    When I reinstall the older program everything is fine, but the program auto-update again and I am back where I started.

    sounds like it might have something to do with certificates.
    is there an error code or does it say what the error is?
    could you post a screenshot image of the error?

    This is the latest reply from Kaspersky:
    We have created a bug for the issue. The bug number is 4876383.

    Out testlab will try to reproduce the issue, but please understand that the issue can be resolved faster in case of collecting data on customer's system.

    Today one technician from Kaspersky worked with me for a long time logged into my machine, and there was found a big bug in the Kaspersky program. It will be fixed says the technician, and there will be a fixed sent out. ;)

    This is what I got from Kaspersky today: The ticket is now assigned to our developers and working towards resolution. Due to the severity of the issue, which means affecting multiple users, they can't provide an estimated time of resolution. We will send you an email immediately once our devs provide one.

    What I did not like about the conversation I had with Kaspersky was, when I said I have to use another AV program when I go to online banking, I got the answer that then I could just turn off the whole Kaspersky, finish in the bank and then turn on again Kaspersky. This is ridiculous, it is when you go online banking that you absolutely need to be protected. :rolleyes:

    Meh. A hacker is far more likely to be trying to hack your bank (all of the time) than they are any of us. They're not waiting for you to connect. They are far busier trying to exploit the bank's site. Your browser is probably more secure with the AV off. This one is old but it was the first thing that came up on Google and it makes the point. https://www.computerworld.com/artic...-could-make-your-company-more-vulnerable.html

    It is far more easy to pwn 10 000 average Joes and Karens (their devices) than pwning digital infrastructure of one bank to the point of ability to withdrawn/transfer money. At least in country I live in. Maybe in US some banks don't have competent cybersecurity experts, so it is easy to break in to them.

    One of Kaspersky's selling points is precisely the security of online login using a bank's website in Protected Browser. When Kaspersky recommends that I turn off the entire program, the whole point of Kaspersky is gone.

    While I am sure you are right that it is absolutely easier to exploit any average user than a bank, I still don't feel that momentarily disabling your AV to connect to the bank is a dangerous as the initial shock reaction of many would imply. If someone were able to exploit that session then they have already infiltrated the system somewhere. Your solution (whatever you have installed) has already failed at that point. While yes, it is smarter to run something than not, the idea that Kaspersky having suggested disabling protection momentarily exposes someone to mortal danger seems an overreaction, at least in my opinion. I am willing t concede that I could be missing something, but that kind of discussion is the point of this forum.
