    G DATA does not release a publicly available changelog. It is only done in their product GUI during an upgrade.

    Are there actual G DATA personnel on that forum ? If yes, please PM me because I have tried to submit really bad bugs to G DATA in the past without success.

    I have as well submited some of your listed/found bugs in the past for G DATA via in software, they never replied to me, even though I had specific reference/Ticket number. Maybe it's worth to directly forward them to G DATA @ rokop ?

    I don't know what to tell anyone then. Evidently they don't reply to anyone, not even AV test labs.

    Well, I take that back. A single time one of their support offices replied to me and told me something was fixed. I updated, retested and it wasn't fixed.

    HI'd be grateful if you could give me more information.

    How does the G Data beta program work? do they give a key to testing the beta?

    I'd say to contact them, but then I remembered that it appears there is no way to properly contact them and get back a response. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    You just have to replace username and password from you existing ones to credentials provided in the first post and then you'll get an upgrade confirmation dialog from G DATA to 25.4.0.3 and confirmation to restart PC afterwards. Keep in mind, that it's not advised for production PC, because BETA version may have bugs.

    Regarding G DATA BETA, you can write to beta.retail(at)gdata.de and yeah, you may never get an response. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad (about G DATA handling email support requests). :(

    Glad it wasn't me then. I put GData, which by the way I love, on the DMZ and had some update channel tampering against it. The attacker kept 'bricking' GData and I wanted to work with them on hardening it against that but they never responded. Funny thing, Kaspersky's ex-wife owns a quarter of GData, I think she runs the company now or something.

    What? Hahahahahaha. That is actually quite funny.

    Natalya Kaspersky becomes share holder at G Data Software AG and will be elected on to the supervisory board

    You're right hahahaha she is a share-holder...

    Well that is pretty user friendly isn't it? :love::love:

    "Hi guys there's a beta but there's no other Languages for details before you install it so just install it and we non-legally binding promise you it'll be the best. PS: <in german> if there's any issues we are not responsible, period </german>"

    Luckily for me I know two amazing German malware hunters and malware analysts called @Der.Reisende and @silversurfer who would help me translate if I begged them

    Maybe I should take @Lockdown 's suggestion, and get a new girlfriend, or get back to my well-know ex who never let me down, she atleast always responded to my requests when I asked for help or wanted to chit-chat about non-security related topics, unlike this arrogant chick whose name starts with the letter G. Oh, it's all about that best BB love triangle.. (. Y .)

    Lots of av companies are not better with the support. For me protection ist more important than a worldbest support with mediocre protection

    @amico81 Avast, ESET, Emsisoft and Malwarebytes always had good support from my personal perspective.

    By saying that you completely relay on yourself when problems/bugs appear, I have also been a warrior myself throughout my life, but sometimes after a hard day at work you just want to come home and rest for a bit and let your girl do dishes. I am not always at home when my dirty underwear needs cleaning.. G is pretty girl who can cook and clean, but we have no chemistry in bedroom.. sometimes it's an important factor why relationships can't last for a long, unless she starts to become more attractive, update her garderobe and satisfy my needs.. and I can ask for all that, because I pay her lol (security software) :ROFLMAO:
