Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web has updated Dr.Web Agent for Windows in the service Dr.Web Anti-virus. Now users can benefit from all the innovations incorporated into Dr.Web series 11 products for Windows, including technologies that provide enhanced protection against attacks that exploit zero-day vulnerabilities. The anti-virus also boasts a significant performance boost.

Innovations in Dr.Web Agent for Windows version 11
  • Anti-exploit protection prevents malware from using software vulnerabilities when trying to take over an operating system. Fine-tune the Preventive Protection to control access to objects for trusted applications and thus avoid system conflicts. In addition, the Preventive Protection settings now include the option to create profiles.
  • Dr.Web Scanning Engine routines have been optimised to ensure that possible threats are detected faster.
  • Dr.Web Scanner SE’s graphical user interface (GUI) has been completely redesigned—settings for the scanner are now included in with the general anti-virus settings, making it easier to manage.
  • Statistics on the activities undertaken by the anti-virus are now gathered and stored. Filters provide easy, instant access to events involving specific components or to the list of Parental Control-blocked sites that users have attempted to access.
  • New Parental Control features include:
    • The new option Interval time limit lets parents specify the amount of time that their children can spend on the computer. At night (the time period involved can be defined manually) computer access is blocked automatically.
    • You can now either block access to files and folders completely or grant read-only access.
    • Profiles can now be used to adjust Time-limit settings.
    • Settings can be imported between user accounts.
    • The Parental Control can be disabled for a specific account.
    • To enable access to files and folders, there is no longer any need to clear the list of blocked objects or disable the Parental Control.
    • A new website category called Online games has been introduced; access to it can be blocked.
  • New Quarantine Manager administrative features ensure that quarantined objects are rescanned and backups are displayed, allowing users to restore deleted or cured files, if necessary.
  • The new Dr.Web HyperVisor component, which runs on the lowest system level, greatly enhances threat detection and neutralisation and guarantees that all malware attempts (including malware that has yet to be discovered) to infiltrate the protected system or disrupt Dr.Web's operation will be thwarted.
  • Managing whitelists of blocked devices is easier than ever: you can configure permissions for specific users or groups. Two access modes are now available for devices with a file system: ‘Allow all’ and ‘Read-only’.
  • Updating the Dr.Web Control Service and the SpIDer Agent for Windows component no longer requires a restart.
  • A separate pop-up notification about the need to restart the system after threats have been neutralised has been added; it is only displayed after the neutralisation of complex threats that can’t be removed unless the system is rebooted. A blocked device notification has been added to the settings for the option to block the use of specific devices.
  • Anti-spam settings are now available alongside SpIDer Mail settings.
  • A new option has been added to protect against BadUSB (for devices that emulate keyboards).
  • Virus database updating can be run manually in the mobile mode.

Thanks for sharing. Will do some tests on my Virtual Machine :)
e.g.
  • what's about the compatibility on using Dr.Web's ShellGuard with HitmanPro.Alert - if it should work together, that should be the new anti-exploit monster :D
  • how shellguard protects without the signaturebased antivirus-engine (if it can be deactivated separately)
  • what's about the performance (copying, archiving, unarchiving and downloading big files)

I saw a review from a site last week about Dr.Web and thought it was a good read. I have not used Dr.Web yet and am not planning to because I do not a license and time/storage to check it out but it seems promising. Hope the guys here test it further.
