I think it is 1.0.15.xx, instead of 1.0.5.xx, might be just typo by Bitdefender.

I just boot up my computer, so I have to wait till 1 hour is up and BD free check client version updates.


Edit: Very likely just installer update, nothing to do with actual client update.

Might be a miss/glitsch from Softpedia - Majorgeeks ? don't shoot the messenger ;)
Atleast this time revision sounds logical, unlike one case in December :D but like that time it took about week till next update came out.

Maybe few more days waiting for update, who knows... Anyway it's been basically a month from last update (17 December 2018)

1.0.15.77 sounds pretty big update, when compare to 1.0.14.76

Hmm, I wonder what is wrong? Yesterday were last time that update were completed, since today seen many of these errors, last time I had these like in summer 2018 when I started use BD free for first time, not long after that devs on their Bitdefender forums told that hotfix is coming (of course I don't remember anymore, which error number were on those problems)

Here you can see when last update were done, and antimalware engine version.

Some fix again

Edit: Also noticed this new service, added after this latest update:

bdactivethreatcontrol.png


Edit2: This service seem to be on paid versions of BD?

Bitdefender Active Threat Control is a pro-active and dynamic detection technology, based on monitoring processes and system events, and tagging suspicious activities. It has been designed to act against never-before-seen threats based on their behavior.


So this mean BD Free just got upgrade to it's detection, with this small update?

I have never used BD Free, but what I know is that it used "Active Virus Control" (which, for example, is not on ad-aware free).
Not sure if "Active Threat Control" is a more advanced version of "Active Virus Control"

EDIT: yes, I think it is https://download.bitdefender.com/re...s-2015-SolutionPaper-ATC-812397-en-EN-web.pdf

On BD forum many users complaining about website's on FF, Chrome ,Edge, opera are not loading due certifcat problem..... maybe this is fixed.

I have used BD free for several months and it was using active virus control (that was the old one) this has been replaced with active threat control, the newer part already in paid versions.
So a little better detection

Yes, this was only one of two issues I had with it over a 1 month trial. I wanted to like it, but … the problems.
