FYI: A reboot is required (I may have missed the notification in the bottom right, but be sure to make sure to check it (the GUI) today or tomorrow. Happy with the product, but with all the malware out there, please make sure to reboot (All components except firewall are disabled until you reboot after the modules update).

  • Improved: Ransomware detection in Behavior Blocker.
That is important because many business firms invest highly through signatures, so it needs an automatic response that must blocked immediately like BB.

Many take for granted through backup tool so with this, a huge call up attention to make Plan B on their infrastructure.

@jamescv7 Are you saying that that it preiously had less than optimal Ransomware protetion? Or is this just an improvement?
Improvement means that the thing has gained something to make it better. So, yeah, previous Emsisoft versions had "less than optimal Ransomware protection". :D
