for everyone that used the Beta, there is no uninstallation entry at the usual place, go to C:/Program Files/MAX and run the uninst.exe
MAX v1 won't uninstall or stop MAX Beta but after a restart only the newest runs, so first uninstall the old then install the new.
Yeah you're right it probably isn't even a bug. It's probably just like that by design. I am sure if they wanted to change it they could easily. So making the new version uninstall the beta and adding an uninstall entry in registry so it shows on Uninstall Programs area would be a feature request. Although I do think they should already do this for obvious reasons.I didn't report anything since I don't feel like this is a bug.
they might have a different version with Korean language cause remember, the Beta was in Korean.Yeah you're right it probably isn't even a bug. It's probably just like that by design.

yes i noticed this too, during malware testing after scanning the folder manually, in 3 minutes, MAX started flagging new files automatically in the same folder it scanned before.I´ve been conducting one of my standard tests (simulation of polymorphism) with MAX and the results were...interestingly. My sample was composed of 91 malicious binaries gathered a few hours before by maruko. Nothing special, the usual stuff like trojans, coinminers, ransomware and all that nasties.
When I unpacked the samples MAX had a detection rate of 86/91. After using upx on the samples detection rate was going down to 70/91 but MAX submitted new IOCs to the cloud. About 10 minutes later I performed another manual scan with MAX to check whether detection was improved and indeed now 86/91 samples are being detected again. I´ll repeat my test with another sample set later to ensure correct results.
As a second opinion scanner MAX does a good job but I wouldn´t rely completely on it. I was in contact with the manufacturer a few months before and they told me that MAX is completely cloud dependent and there are/were no plans to implement an offline mode. Maybe they have changed their mind in the meantime but this is the information I got a while before.
Same here. Touchpad became unresponsive several times after rebooting, with no other security soft installed on Win10. No pop-up/notifications, plus GUI won't open. Seems pretty unstable given as it's a beta version. I like the idea though.Installed it= windows couldn't boot correctly and many applications didn't start at at boot!it also uses hidden process.buggy and unstable so I removed it.
my guess is, it will only upload files that are unknown to the scanner.anyone noticed that it used all of the upload bandwidth to share the cache database. I actually authenticated my email and API that when it start uploading.
Say if I have 2300 files in the cache database, I noticed that 53 were already processed. Does that meant I have 2250 more to upload. This could take are day to since it seem to be uploading whole file.
