    Hello,

    I am pleased to announce that a new BETA version of Crystal Security is available. :)

    What's new in Crystal Security 3.7

    Added new Dynamic Engine

    Dynamic engine is a new in-house engine. It is based on different rules set to determine if file is malicious or not.
    It works in offline mode and does not require any database or database updates.

    Added new Settings

    - Show result based on in-house engines -
    • When unknown file is detected by Collective engine then decision will be based on other in-house engines
    • No more unknown alerts (useful for average users)
    - Do not alert - wait for cloud response -
    • File will be uploaded to the cloud (without any alert/decision)
    • When analysis are done, then there will be known result for file by Collective engine
    Improved Shell integration

    When you start right-click scan then Crystal Security shows Overview section automatically which will help to keep an eye on analysis.

    Improved User Interface

    There are several changes under Settings (Protection and Behavior) section and also on notifications.

    Improved Performance and other features

    There are a lot of other changes and improvements in many features.

    Two different types of downloads

    Download installer version of Crystal Security 3.7.0.1
    Download portable version of Crystal Security 3.7.0.1

    Please uninstall any previous version completely to avoid conflicts.

    Notice: Dynamic engine is currently enabled only in Active protection.

    Looking forward to your feedback. :)

    Regards,
    Kardo

    Hi @Petrovic,

    Thanks for the feedback. :)

    Detection is caused by Dynamic engine.

    In early stage it may cause False Positive detections. It will be improved over-time with improved rules set.
    If there are too many False Positive detections by Dynamic engine then please disable it under Settings.

    Regards,
    Kardo

    Hello, I did not know this program so far, it can be used as main AV or just as a secondary? Congratulations, although I have not done any testing yet, it seems to me a promising AV.

    @Petrovic,

    There are several ways to analyze file(s) manually:

    Under Overview section
    1. Add file manually
    2. Right-click on selected file
    3. Choose Analyze Selected File
    After that you should see result for file.

    Another method is Shell scan. In your feedback I see that Shell integration was blocked by Dynamic engine (will be fixed).
    Finally, You can try to copy executable files to another location. It should trigger active protection automatically.

    Please let me know if it helps. :)

    Regards.
    Kardo

    Hi @Claudiano,

    Thank you for the interest. :)

    Crystal Security is a good secondary layer for your main protection.
    I suggest to use it with some other AntiVirus or AntiMalware.
    Hi @SHvFl,

    Your requested feature is available in this Beta version (result based on other engines).
    @Petrovic,

    Bug confirmed (there is wrong AppData path in Shell integration). Will be fixed in the next version.
    Hi @amir 957,

    Thanks. :)
    Please note that file will be uploaded when:
    1. Upload file for analysis is enabled
    2. Wait for cloud response is enabled
    3. File is unknown to Collective engine
    Hi @DardiM,

    Thanks. Your feedback is much appreciated. ;)

    Regards,
    Kardo

    Just tested the following malware pack: 13/2/2017 #15
    Dynamic engine detected and blocked all executable files (12/15). It missed 3 javascript files.

    Other members can also test Dynamic engine separately:
    • Enable Dynamice engine
    • Disable Collective engine
    Set Action for Unsafe files to User intervention (then you can see which engine detected file). Apply settings.
    1. Download malware pack (use safe environment)
    2. Start Crystal Security
    3. Extract downloaded malware pack
    4. Wait for results

    Kardo
