I was updating the k-lite codec pack
I got "unauthorized access blocked" on svchost, message pop-up from wisevector, I clicked END
a correct information should be What process and how it tries to modify/access svchost.exe. Furthermore I cannot find anything in WVSX logs,
such important information should be included
I believe this is adguard (installed as programme) which accesses svchost alot
We have downloaded the k-lite codec pack. No alert till now. Anyway, we will keep observing.
This is because you have document protection enabled and made custom settings.
Click Log->click Documents, you will get the information related.
Hey @WiseVector been using WSVX for some time now and it is able to stop almost anything under the sun.
When is the new beta coming with web protection and cloud included in the free version and paid too i guess ?
Thanks for your support!
The new beta will be released next month probabally. Yes, there will be both paid and free version. Most network protection features need to be paid.
Thanks eagerly looking forward for it!
@WiseVector could you display a comparison table between the free version and the paid one? let`s say a sneak peak.
Ok but at least provide us with a trial so we know what's being paid
I don't see any log option there,
The new features are Web Protection, Application Network Access Control, NIDS and Manual Mode Hips. They are not for free.
Of course there is a trial.
Please refer to the link to see the option.
Can you give it to us? or some sort of sneak peak for testing purposes maybe. Malicious Website blocking will be in free too right?
@WiseVector Will WiseVector be registered as the main AV in Windows Security before/when the paid version comes out?
Sorry, not now. I will post the download link of beta version here once it's already.
Yes, it will be in free.
I'm afraid this will be done after the paid version comes out...
It should happen very soon. An AV yet to be certified by Microsoft or any other professional testing labs is not something many users would be comfortable using. We all know how deep integration is required for a good AV to function properly. Currently, we don't know how WiseVector achieves this, whether it's following Microsoft's guideline or not, using proper drivers or not, etc. A user need to be aware of this before installing any fairly unknown AV. No matter how good the protection is, these concerns needs to be addressed first.
I agree , but I think its very kind of him to let the base version be free, which is the core functionality. He must start making some money, a trivial task , so he can certify his programme, which is exactly what the dev wants
So i ran into a sample the other day that triggered a new sort of alert from WSVX's behaviour monitoring modules. It seems it detected the dangerous behaviour and quarantined but also it traced its actions and allows deletion of any dropped files on the system. Also would love to know what WIBD stands for ?
I just installed WVSX but W.Defender is fully running?! What would be the best practice to handle that situation until the program itself handles it, which i suppose will be when it registers itself in W.security center.
When does the paid version come out?
I can undertand your concerns and I think lots of users have the same concerns with you.
Actually, being certified by Microsoft (AV can be certified when having gained certification through independent testing by an industry standard organization such as ICSA Labs, West Coast Labs, PCSL IT Consulting Institute, SKD Labs, AV Comparatives, AV Test or VB100) or any other professional testing labs is not so complicated as you thought.
Sometimes, it's all about "Money" if an AV wants to pass those tests. Since those organizations seem to be very professional and the criteria for judging whether an AV is qualified are controlled by them, AV companies have to participate in those tests to gain certification. That's how business works.
Another issue that should not be overlooked is that some of the samples used for testing are outdated.
We respect authority but we prefer to use our limited resources on something more effective and creative at present.
WVSX has been tested so many times on Malwaretips, all test results are posted there and the persons conducting the tests are also professional. I think those tests are "Purer". But in order to be certified by MS, we plan to take part in the test which is initiated by a prefessional testing lab this year.
Thanks for your testing. The sample must be ransomware.
WIBD means WiseVector Intelligence Behavior Detection. Malware being detected by our advanced behavior detection is named WIBD.***.
You can use a tool (eg. Defender Control) to disable WD at present.
We are trying our best to release the paid version within two months.
Ok, thank you.
After removal WVSX leaves the "honeypot folders" on all partitions. Do you have attention on that?
Under normal circumstances, these folders will be completely deleted when WVSX is uninstalled.
The issue you encountered can be caused by this reason: The "honeypot folders" were not the initial auto-created ones. They were created by users.
Please delete them manually.
Hi, thanks for answering but I must say it's not a satisfying answer at all.
For all businesses to be successful it's only normal to spend money upfront and then then the revenue will come if the product is good.
WiseVector not putting itself up for certification yet planning to release a paid version doesn't do any good for its reputation.
If you talk about money then I can pose some other questions also. Like, WiseVector has been around since 2018 according to your website. So how come a startup is surviving for 3 years without any income? Without an entity actively investing in its development? Also amidst the pandemic which has even financially hurt large businesses. Are you funded by any third parties that you haven't disclosed publicly? There's almost no info available about the company.
About Malwaretips, no. None of the testers there are professional. They usually test products cause it's their hobby. They are not malware analysts or something like that. Even I was a tester there for about a year and I am not professionally attached to any tech-related industries. Besides, as I briefly said in my previous comment, protection isn't the only important factor. There are plenty of good AVs out there already. You have to build trust first and getting your AV certified by Microsoft and trusted labs out there is one of the first steps. I also don't like that you're suggesting users using Defender Control.
I didn't bring these questions before but now that you're about to release a paid version with even more critical features like network protection, it's a must to get it certified first before that. Otherwise, it's not plausible to trust the company and the product.
