    Are the generic processes for the FBI malware included?
    Thanks.

    We will have to wait for Joe to reply as that's the only details I have.
    Maybe he was speaking of the 2014 products to add this generic process?

    Yes, that should have been included in the changelog as well. Thanks!

    I have a small bug at the moment: Open WSA-C, click System Tools, Reports, Protection Statistics click View.

    WSA-C fully crashes instantly. The window closes and a second WSA icon appears in the systray as it restarts. A few moments later the original systray icon drops off leaving just the new one.

    Windows 7 Ultimate, SP 1, 32 bit. WSA-C 8.0.2.174

    Thanks - this will be fixed in the next update. It's due to a change in this area coming for the 2014 product. I suggest just not using the Protection Statistics feature for now until the next build comes out.
