    Updated modules of Dr.Web anti-virus for Windows workstations released

    March 31, 2008

    Doctor Web, Ltd., a Russian developer of IT-security solutions branded Dr.Web announces the release of updated modules of Dr.Web anti-virus for Windows. Improvements have been done to Dr.Web GUI-based scanner, SpIDer Guard resident monitor and the Scheduler.

    Updated Dr.Web Shield™ anti-rootkit driver featured by the scanner allows curing notoriously famous MBR rootkit BackDoor.MaosBoot. See our latest news about curing the rootkit for more details.

    Significant changes have been done to SpIDer Guard that performs real-time resident protection. The updated SpIDer Guard runs more stable on highly loaded servers and provides yet more reliable protection for Dr.Web Enterprise Suite workstations. The following SpIDer Guard issues have been fixed:

    * SpIDer Guard blocking applications' temporary files and database files in particular 1C/FoxPro/Banking clients and during printing has been fixed;
    * Windows 2003 freezing while SpIDer Guard is running has been fixed;
    * Agent/service crash that sometimes occurred when applying an action to a malicious file (Report mode) has been fixed;
    * SpIDer Guard using all CPU time available has been fixed;
    * Sending notifications via e-mail/network messenger has been improved;
    * Various Windows systems’ crash to BSOD has been fixed;
    * Detection of infected archives has been improved;
    * Register item of the context menu has been restored;
    * GUI issues that arose when using Eastern Asia interface languages in various OS have been fixed;
    * Dr.Web task scheduler issue that sometimes caused emergency shutdown of the program has been fixed.

    Is this an update for
    Dr.Web Anti-virus for Windows?
    It's the word "workstations" that confuses me a little o_O

    Is the update issued thru the regular updates or do I need to download an update manually?

    Sorry for asking. I'm new to Dr.Web and recently (2008-03-13) purchased a license to test it on one of our computers.

    regards,

    yes, you will recieve the updates and via automatic update.

    you are protected ;)

    all updates, program/signatures arrive via autoupdate, only new versions of the software will be needed to download and installed (ie. 4.33 > 4.44)

    I do not trust these "first and only" claim. And any company making them usually go down a notch in my book.
