New Forensic Log: A timeline to reproduce what happened

Do you remember the details of every single interaction you had with your malware protection software?

Of course not.

Whether it’s the wording of a particular alert or notification, or trying to recall what exactly you clicked on, it’s almost impossible to mentally keep track of every single malware-related event and what actions you took in the heat of the moment. To address this problem, we’ve introduced a new feature that we call Forensic Log, a condensed timeline that shows all events and user actions of Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Emsisoft Internet Security in an easy to read form.

The Forensic Log allows you to:

New Auto-resolve mode for Behavior Blocker alerts

We get a lot of queries about whether it would be possible for our software to automatically deal with all Behavior Blocker alerts, as many users feel they’re not up to making the right decision on alert windows that look technically complex. We’ve listened to your feedback and decided to go one step further by not only providing a recommended action on those alerts (allow or quarantine an alerted program) but also offering a new Auto-resolve option for the Behavior Blocker that makes decisions all on its own.

Do note that even with Auto-resolve enabled, you are still in full control! Behavior Blocker may occasionally block good programs if their behavior patterns look similar to those of malicious programs, so we implemented the Auto-resolve mode in a way that still allows you to jump in and decide differently if needed.

Please note that the new Auto-resolve mode is enabled by default. You can still switch back to large alert windows with more details in the “Protection” > “Behavior Blocker” panel.

How to obtain the new version

As always, so long as you have auto-updates enabled in the software, you will receive the latest version automatically during your regularly scheduled updates, which are hourly by default. New users please download the full installer from our product pages.

Note to Enterprise users: If you have chosen to receive “Delayed” updates in the Update settings for your clients, they will receive the new software version no earlier than 30 days after the regular “Stable” availability. This gives you time to perform internal compatibility tests before a new version gets rolled out to your clients automatically.

Have a great (malware-free) day!
