you can use HMP to scan and select Open file location to manually remove themI didn't know that. But if sohos use the same engine, it would be better as it can remove the infected files - AFAIK
its fast cause as most of the scanning and all the signatures is done in the cloudTy!
I just installed Hitman yesterday and it's amazingly fast. O.O
One problem i noticed is that it's scheduled scan was not working. Idk if Hard_config from andy_full could be the responsible.
I think it's not fully integrated. I am using Sophos Home and I found out that it's detecting Tracking cookies just like HitmanPro, so some parts of Hitman are definitely integrated but not every engine I guess.
Also not really satisfied with the answer but I didn't dare to ask again.
How is it that hard getting a simple "Yes" or "No" answer... But as I assumed already, some parts of HitmanPro are integrated into Sophos as it detects the same tracking cookies as HitmanPro. I might go infect my test system a little and check if both programs have the same detections. At least if nobody will get a better answer from the support in the coming days.Heard back a while ago, sorry for delay. I didn't post all of it b/c part of it concerns my licenses.
So, if anyone wants to pick up the baton, the next stop would be contacting Sophos. No SurfRight engineer replied, and one of them would have been able to answer the questions. Oh well, they prob. have better things to do.
They probably never integrated/assimilated the two companies when taking over SurfRight as that one already had a fantastic reputation upon acquisition. Not surprising if that is the case, that the person whom replied back doesn't have the info. because he/she is not part of Sophos, but strictly of SurfRight.
