Did you install WVSX in your production machine or in a virtual machine?
Thank's for looking into this.
Actual WIN W10-21H1-19043.1081
Not on a VM...I say that because the system is not a Production system per se, just one I use for testing...but not a VM.
Hi, I did that just a short time ago, as suggested by you, but it just comes back.
Please refer to cruelsister's post just a few above yours https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/wisevector-stop-x.431502/page-64#post-3014752
@WiseVector- I wish to make Exclusions in Custom Scan for ALL image extensions (I have tons that just eat time for the scanner) How I wish to do this. Thank You and as always wish much success in this AV AI program + New Features.
I wish to keep WVSX straight forward, and not customized for geeks.
I'm on W10 20H2 Home, with KTS, NVT OSArmor 1.4.3, MBAE 1.13.345, WSB 4.36 and Win10Privacy 184.108.40.206. Ah, and Kerish Doctor 4.85 too.
1) OK. It would be useful
2) The problem with blank characters appeared after I installer v3 on v2.73. After completely uninstalling and performing a clean reinstall of v3, I have no more these problems.
3) I didn't see the destination the program was trying to connect to, but maybe because the popup disappeared too fast?
4) After running WSVX a couple of hours, I regularly got BSOD due to WisevectorFW64.sys. Moreover, with WXSVX running, my Vpn Provider app (based on openvpn 2.4) regularly disconnect/reconnect (in best case, but it happens that the app is no more able to reconnect after disconnecting). However, I have whitelisted this app (as well as bin.openvpn.exe and tapinstall.exe), in exclusions, and allowed them in the WSVX's firewall rules. This problem very specific to WSVX usage: I have disabled WSVX since 3 days, and had have no vpn problem since.
Thanks for replying... what Im curious about is, which element of the WV firewall component is not covered by Commodos firewall. I get that the two programs are complementary but recommending having both firewall components running makes me wonder what WV's brings that is different. Im talking about the firewall components only.
In other words, if not redundant, how are the two firewall components complementary?
When is WV going to register in the Windows security center? So we don't have two antivirus running at the same time.
Or rather the other way round, WSVX incorporate Cruel-only CF - peerless product, with great and responsive devs!
Thanks for the screenshots, it helps a lot.
Thanks for your feedback, we will release the next version asap, then you can install it again to see if there the problem persists or not.
It seems that the temp folder and all its sub folders have been set to read-only, please try to remove the read-only attribute of the temp folder manually and try again.
This is not possible, although you can not execute the image file directly, but the malicious program may save the code to the image file, please search "Image Steganography" in google to learn more info.
I'm so sorry for all the trouble, I think the root cause of everything should be a conflict with openvpn, we will do testing with openvpn and release the next version asap to solve this problem.
I don't know much about Comodo's firewall, but you can trust WVSX's firewall. Which is powered by AI, can give you maximum protection with fewer pop-ups.
We will register in the WSC as soon as possible and will let you know if there is any new info, thanks.
This seems to be quite true (so far). Although direct comparisons are difficult as WV has more Firewall restriction levels then does the firewall of Comodo, at the default levels (CFW at Safe Mode vs WV at Automatic Mode) CFW is more restrictive whereas WV is more specific to malicious connections. But the important thing is neither in any way inhibits the other.
The best example would be a quickie test that I ran on a WVSX + CF(cruel) system: Selected were two trojan downloaders each of which I re-coded and insured FUD status (so I had 4 samples). I then disabled WV real-time protection as well as Comodo's viruscope.
1). for the 2 known files, WV acted first, detecting and deleting the malware files prior to them even making it into CF.
2). for the 2 FUD files, CF acted first by Sandboxing the malware with a simultaneous firewall alert. One of these was subsequently detected and deleted by WV after a few seconds delay.
With CF totally disabled and WV real-time enabled, the two older malware files were deleted and both FUD files were blocked from connecting out by WV, although one was still hanging out in memory (but not doing anything).
Further, I tried something easy- a Seamonkey browser nightly (which is unsigned but legitimate) was installed. WVSX allowed Seamonkey to run and connect. CF sandboxed it with a concurrent FW alert. Anyway, WiseVector is really a remarkable application by itself. In combination with CF it is Extreme
Hope this helped and hope I wasn't confusing (which would be a first for me).
I look forward to the next version and hopefully...no issue.
Not confusing at all but spot on as usual
That answers my original question... thanks
I have a Win 10 instance now with only CruelCF and WVSX (still 273, but may try new beta). Does one have to set any mutual exclusions (exclude WVSX in CF, and vice versa)?
I went and changed something in that temp folder, and I finally have it installed. But, I immediately after the reboot, exited from WVSX. I will then enable WVSX, the next time I restart my laptop. So, it is installed but not active.
i added this into exclusion. Just got it minutes ago. Is it a false positive?
