Hi @Petrovic, here auto launch issue was referring to another issue we noticed. In some cases, application was not able to start while this option was checked. This tells me that we have to make our release notes a bit more descriptive :)

Nevertheless, thank you very much for bringing this to my attention again. We will check this asap and fix it.

Regarding resizing problem, are you using a custom DPI setting?

Hallo and happy new year.
I have some questions.
1)In early beta test of 2 there exist a lot of engines. In the final version of 2 this is changed. As i understand the version 2 client real time has an in house engine and if find something strange it upload it to meta-defender scan and scan it with 5 engines.
This as i understand has limitations because you cant upload words and PDFs files because they are sensitive user files so the in house engine cant detect all the malware in that type of files because it cant upload them.
If i am false here u can tell.
2)In version 3 what is the difference? It is the same as 2 with some changes in the in house engine? That is the reason for more false positives?
3)can u tell me the version 2 real time what files protect? Only the executables? I know that now you write here for version 3 But i don't know after all years what files the version 2 real-time protects. It detects for example malicious scripts? It detects malicious jar files?

The VirusTotal link option does nothing. I tried it after a Firefox extension was detected (FP) by Zemana, after clicking on Down arrow>More>VirusTotal nothing happens, no browser window opens or anything. Default browser is Firefox on Win 1809. Sent feedback too.
VirusTotal
PS, the file was not scanned earlier by VirusTotal. Even in that case it should tell the end user about this.

Thank you very much for details @Petrovic. We will check this in detail.

@rockstarrocks, currently we have some issues with cleaning and quarantining browser extension files. this is also affecting VirusTotal option on detection panel. we are working on this and it will be fixed soon. in the meantime, you can always report such FPs by sending a feedback through UI. we appreciate your help.

P.S. Soon we will share a public board on which you can track all existing bugs and feature requests received from you :giggle:

Once again, thank you all!

I think Zemana is wet toilet paper now but we'll find out sooner or later.

What I want to know is what I've seen someone else ask but they were ignored and not replied to on the public forums:
1. Is CVE-2018-6593 patched yet?
2. Is CVE-2018-6606 patched yet?

They were both flaws in kernel-mode software by Zemana which when abused would allow a non-privileged client to elevate its privileges, at-least for the MalwareFox re-brand. They were publicly disclosed in February of 2018... almost a year ago. The source-code is available on GitHub.

I'd like a Yes or No as to whether the flaws have been addressed since or not - no beating around the bush.

Hi @In2an3_PpG, thank you for bringing this up. I am not sure when and how someone who asked this before was ignored. I am relatively new at Zemana but I apologize on behalf of all Zemana team. I will gladly answer you :giggle: This is a driver related vulnerability and we can say that this will be patched soon when we start using new driver.

I had it flag the new Emsisoft Browser extension, and remove it. Had to reinstall it. It may have issues "cleaning" and "quarantining" it, but not removing it once flagged :) I had to remove the addon before the next scan to prevent loss of the clean Emsisoft addon.

Fixing the two kernel vulnerabilities should be the first priority right now for the safety of your customers, as well as MalwareFox's who are a re-brand of Zemana. It's already been 10+ months. How long does a company need to slap on some DACL and implement proper client IPC verification?

Kernel vulnerabilities for privilege escalation should be the priority. Anyone can argue that it does not matter because they are not going to be hit with a kernel vulnerability... loads of people had that mindset about Windows vulnerabilities until WannaCry started dropping systems like flies and started spreading with an SMB vulnerability. Same for NotPetya.

Actions speak louder than words and the matter of the fact is that this should have been solved an extremely long time ago, therefore I cannot believe for one second that Zemana is interested in the security of their users at all at this moment in time. When Zemana can start proving it to me with actions instead of just words, then I'll believe in it... until then, good luck and I will see myself out.

Tag me when the vulnerabilities are patched for both the stable non-beta and beta versions of Zemana.

Hi @Lobito Punky, do you perhaps mean when you started a scan, application crashed? Thank you very much for sending the bug report. We are checking it.
Hi, thank you so much for answering. Yes, exactly, that's when I start the scan when the error occurs. I am already communicating with a representative of the zam team and I am sending reports via the application. Best regards.

I believe they lost their their master engineer and creator of this program and don't know how to update it. So they acquire new team members and made a version three one from scratch and this new version will use the same strong cloud!
this is what i believe personally.
If this is the case then i believe we must give them an opportunity ta make again a good product.
