Source: New Release: Immunet 7.0.0

Hello all,

We are happy to announce a new release of Immunet: Version 7.0.0!

This latest version of Immunet provides the same great protection against malware and viruses as before, but also includes Credo and AMSI.

Credo is a ML engine that allows endpoint connector to extract feature print of a PE file and send to the cloud to see whether the file is malware or not.

ScriptID engine allows AMP connector to analyze scripts prior to execution. It is based on the Windows Antimalware Scan Interface (AMSI). In 7.0.0 version of connector only PowerShell scripts are analyzed.

You can get the new installer here. https://download.immunet.com/binaries/immunet/bin/ImmunetSetup.exe

If you are running an older version of Immunet, you should be able to upgrade via the 'Update Now' button in the UI. If you don't see the update in your UI we recommend uninstalling Immunet and reinstalling the version downloaded from Immunet AntiVirus

Had a short run with it on a test machine and it quarantines automatic found samples very fast and effective. Seems to have issues with restricted accounts so that for sure needs fixed/tweaked. It does play very nice with F-Secure.

New in Immunet AntiVirus 7.0.0
The new version of Immunet 7.0.0 provides the same effective protection against malware and viruses as before, but also includes Credo and AMSI protection technologies.

Credo is a machine learning engine that allows you to extract PE file data on the side of your computer and send it to the cloud to check if the file is harmful.
ScriptID engine that allows complex malware protection (AMP) to analyze scripts before execution. This technology depends on the Windows Antimalware Scan Interface (AMSI) interface. In version 7.0.0, only PowerShell scripts analyze protection.

I assume the product registers into the action center. And because of that, the OS automatically disables WD just like it is design to do.

Can users here confirm if this is the case?
Yes, this is the case.
I saw in their forums that some people wish they could team it with WD, but I would not hold my breath.

Can it be run as an offline scanner?
yes and no
Yes: if you enable clamAV engine (offline) => extremely low detection rate/useless, but it's a free engine so many AVs use it
No: the 2 main engines of Immunet are all cloud-based. You need internet connection for it

for offline scanner, I highly recommend Emsisoft Emergency Kit: very fast scanning speed, good signatures
if your computer is highly unstable or damaged by malwares (too slow to perform a scan), you need a bootable rescue CD antivirus => I highly recommend ESET SysRescue: acceptable scanning speed, high detection rate

I tried a lot of them, these 2 are my choices

other rescue AVs like:
- Kaspersky: old engine, super slow scanning speed (n)
- BitDefender: super low detection rate compared to Bitdefender AV (n)

Any way to stop that?
The developers will need to add an option similar to the one Malwarebytes has that allows the user to decide if he/she wants to it to register.

Someone with expertise in how the OS works internally might be able figure out a way. But for us common users we will have to wait if Immuntet developers decide to implement such feature.

Have you guys look in the settings and see if there's anything related to what I wrote?
