Can anyone post the changelog? thanks!
This is from the Norton Beta website. There isn't a changelog per se, just this note about outstanding issues...
Here are a list of the known issues with the current Public Beta build. We are already aware of these issues and will have them resolved before final release:
Full (non-streaming) definitions may not update as frequently on the pre-release product. You will continue to get streaming updates, but eventually the “Definition Update” time may show a few days (even after updating Streaming Definitions). Do not use the Intelligent Updater (from the Security Response site) to manually update the definitions, as they’re not compatible with 2012 and will cause issues.
Previously stored Identity Safe data will not work with the next build. Please export your logins as a CSV before installing the new build, and then restore the Identity Safe data through the CSV file when you have installed the new build.
anyone else tryed nis inside virtualbox? all versions of nis ive tryed inside virtualbox never seem to work. nis2010 and 2011 work great on the host os.
Not in the last couple months, but I have a bunch of times prior to that. No problems.
Ye, i did, no issues at all, worked perfectly NIS2011 & NIS2012 (2 versions)
If you want av for virtual environments, you should try symantec endpoint protection 12.1 - the enterprise version. It too is in beta and has a number of optimizations for virtualization.
I'm a little annoyed that there's no phishing protection with NIS 2012.
My Outlook already has spam protection built-in....do they make people buy NIS 360 to get phishing protection?
NIS 2012 has phishing protection for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome.
Phishing sites usually require phishing emails. There's no phishing protection in the Norton Antispam addon.
New Beta Build: 188.8.131.52 is Now Available! (June 1st 2011)
Known Issues for build 184.108.40.206 (Updated: June 1st, 2011)
I am using even my 2006 license today ...
also, even if license was for 2005, contacting customer support would have upgraded you
There's phishing email and then the invalid site that the email links to. I believe NIS will detect the site. Here is some information...
Me wants to see this on reviews (I know it was not written correctly )
You are welcome.
I find the latest build even more responsive than previous ones, minus the performance graph (ironically) which is an issue on my computer introduced a few builds ago.
Norton 2012: Neue Infos und erste Testergebnisse
any new news about norton internet security 2012 ??
One thing I didn't like about norton 2012(infact right from 2010,2011) is that its file processing time is extremely slow. Its detection and heuristic and even behavioral capability is good, but just expose norton to about 1K or more of malware and you get a frustrated experience of testing norton
Not really something that will impact 99.999% of users.
This concern comes up a lot. When Norton detects a piece of malware, it will scan all load points i.e. RUn keys, BHOs, LSP etc (many dozens of areas of the registry) looking for any side-effects, or registry keys pointing to that malware. We do this to ensure that the system remains in as clean a state as possible once the malware file itself is removed. This obviously takes time and slows down the scan. Certain malware takes longer than others to remove, it all depends on what scripts we have available to clean up that malware.
This is in contrast to a lot of products that just remove the exe and leave everything else behind.
Thanks for explaining this. This obviously is one of the reasons why Norton do so good in cleaning. I prefer that by miles compared to how fast it can scan 1k malware
Perfectly agree with you sir but what if the file was never executed and scanning those areas would unnecessary lead to degrade in performance
I am referring to right click scan not on infected system
Good to know!
