    Not yet. The betas need to be manually downloaded.

    Here's something: Corel Video Studio Pro installation results in this:

    Just a quick finding, nothing important - a batch called Microsoft's robocopy to process files, and resulted in:


    Date/Time: 2018-06-01 15:00:59
    Process: [8660]C:\Tools\robocopy.exe
    Process MD5 Hash: 592BE1AD0ED83C36D5E68CA7A014A510

    Here is a new v1.4 (pre-release) test69:
    http://downloads.novirusthanks.org/files/osarmor_setup_1.4_test69.exe

    *** Please do not share the download link, we will delete it when we'll release the official v1.4 ***

    So far this is what's new compared to the previous pre-release:

    + Fixed some false positives
    + Removed "Block execution of IQY Excel Web Query files" (executed directly via excel /dde, can't be filtered)
    + Added numbering of questions (Q) and answers (A) on Help\FAQs file, e.g. Q1 A1, Q16 A16, Q21 A21
    + New option: Prevent explorer.exe from executing exes with /c
    + Improved Block suspicious command-lines

    To install it, first uninstall the previous build, then reboot (not really needed but may help), and install the new build.

    If you find any false positive or issue please let me know.

    All reported FPs should be fixed.

    @mood @EASTER

    Added on the todo list for v1.5

    @bellgamin

    LoL You made my day :D

    @Lorina

    OSA blocks system processes executed from non-system folders, hence why robocopy.exe was blocked when started from C:\Tools\ folder.

    OSA does this because some malware is known to, for example, copy powershell.exe on Temp folder and run it from there.

    In your case, you should exclude that event via exclusions.

    The other reported FP should be fixed.

    @Sampei Nihira

    FP related to uTorrent should be fixed.

    @Overkill

    A few more days, just fixing FPs at the moment.

    //Everyone

    Summary of important features not yet added (scheduled for next version):

    - Automatic update
    - Button to manually check for updates
    - Maybe encrypt the CustomBlock.db/Exclusions.db files so they are not in plain-text and create a GUI-helper to edit them
    - Move all protection options in a ListView so they can be easily sorted/categorized/searchable/enabled/disabled
    - Create pre-defined protection modes: Basic/Medium/Advanced/Custom
    - Add possibility to add custom apps in Anti-Exploit tab
    - Possibility to exclude a specific blocked event from being shown via the notification dialog

    Try downloading and not running. Then execute from File Explorer. I had the same problem this AM. Are you running WD CFA? If so, turn off CFA and try. I finally got it to run, just not from Edge.

    I want to find the best protection to use along with avast so I don't know which one I should choose OSA or VS? They both seem to do the same thing. The way OSA is improving I might just use that one.

    Do it! OSA is knocking it out and with it's rapid paced developments, new additions, also ALL bug reports are promptly and swiftly swooped in on and ironed straight out.

    Pretty much seals Windows system tight as an alligator's snap of the jaws :p

    The exclusions plus custom block rules zip things up very nicely and tight.

    Smartscreen (dumbscreen) was whining here too. I just ignore it and snuff it.

    It's new. So, it makes sense for the file to have low reputation.

    Smart Screen & Norton often forget the axiom "Never bring a knife to a gun fight." :mad:

    Yup. I'm still not really sold on that Windows feature, wasn't then or new Windows 10 although the latter is a bit more formidable.

    I've run ransomware tests that poked right through smartyscreen before. Scary stuff.

    Not happening with NVT Security there clamping things down tight.

    Andreas - this is a wonderful program. Just curious, some months back you had indicated that password protection of OSA was coming soon. Is it still on the horizon?
