Discussion in 'other anti-trojan software' started by G1111, Aug 2, 2014.
Version 5.6 is now available. I did not see a changelog.
Is the license of Trojan Hunter lifetime?
If their FAQ is still updated then it's one year license for user's: http://www.trojanhunter.com/forum/board/FAQ/1143196931
Seem's to be subscription model if i'm not mistaken?
I didn't see a changelog too. Email has been sent to Support, but will there be a reply ... (I doubt it, but who knows ...).
Someone posted a thread at the TH forum some days ago:
No reply there as of yet from Magnus.
I did a clean install. It looks pretty much the same. It looks like more plugins added.
I haven't yet upgraded to version 5.6.
Yes, you have to do a clean installation !!
Here are older FAQ's from siliconman01 about it:
Procedure to Install TrojanHunter
Simplified TrojanHunter Uninstall Procedure
About plugins: could you post a screenshot of the plugins in version 5.6? Here is mine on version 5.5:
Which version/build number is showing in your TH Help > About tab in version 5.6? Here is mine on version 5.5 (on XP):
PS: To be honest, I don't use TH often.
I spoke without realy comparing 5.5 to 5.6. They appear the same, so I am not really sure what is new.
Hey, Trojanhunter has a new forum. Not much action yet.
Thanks. Yes, I just noticed it too.
Is all the old content gone? Or is it just me?
Looks like the old content is indeed gone.
As for where to find info about latest ruleset updates:
We used this link for many years:
OK, the TH forum has recently changed to http://forum.trojanhunter.com/
If I remember me well, yesterday there was info posted at http://forum.trojanhunter.com/t/latest-ruleset-update/11
(but I don't have a screenshot of it).
Today I noticed there this:
OK, now I go to http://trojanhunter.com/trojaninfo/
But that site has a contradiction.
The top says:
The bottom says this:
I just installed TH on this computer (Win 7) in curiosity about the info provided. I have a valid licence. TH Guard disabled. I used the USA server to get the latest defs.
Here you have the info from the TH program itself at this moment:
Ruleset datestamp : 2015-02-28
Scan kernel : 5.0 (Aurelius)
Ruleset entries : 667033
Trojan definitions : 117955
Detection rules : 667033
So, as I expected, the info at the bottom of both http://trojanhunter.com/trojaninfo/ and http://trojanhunter.com/trojaninfo/latest/ is completely outdated as it is saying
As for the top of http://trojanhunter.com/trojaninfo/ :
How the company calculates the number (shown at this moment there as "We have information on 500,464 unique trojans") I don't know and that is not up to me, neither can I comment on the info provided there at the top of the site (shown at this moment as "39 unique trojans added in the last 24 hours").
Isn't this program itself, outdated beyond need. Truly is there any current AV that doesn't cover the ground.
I had decided not to use it anymore on my new computer (Win 7) that I bought last year. Out of curiosity I installed it last night to compare the info from the program itself with the info at the TH site(s). The purpose was also aimed for the Updates Team after the recent changes: like which link(s) can be used in the Updates Alert Forum, the more after I "discovered" the contra-dicting info at the site. It could very well be that I give up and restore a backup-image that I made before installing TH. One could say, why don't you contact the company? That would be a fair question, certainly. But the experience from last years is not exactly encouraging with respect to that; but who knows, maybe it is improved; I don't know. That's the situation.
The developer is rather brave... wonder how many are still purchasing this product. Likely few if any.
It is very very confusing to say the least!
The forum software is from another planet(have never seen that ever)
but we will prevail
Hey my friend,
I just had a look at both the two sites http://trojanhunter.com/trojaninfo/ and http://trojanhunter.com/trojaninfo/latest/
I noticed improvements. The very confusing and completely outdated info (which I mentioned earlier in this thread) at the bottom is now gone; I am glad to see that. Work in progress, I guess. Both sites are looking the same to me BTW.
And I noticed a post by "support" in http://forum.trojanhunter.com/t/latest-ruleset-update/11
PS: I don't know whether Support = Magnus.
The old page still works:
Do you have a link to old site.
It's the same as usual, but now re-directs to the new one: http://www.trojanhunter.com/forum/board/RulesetUpdates
Don't allow the re-direct. Overall more secure anyway, and a great time saver IMO.
Okay thanks. Don't like the new forum format.
Thanks Kobayashi maru.
