@SearchLight The main verdict shown will be from the whitelistcloud and the AI (atleast thats how I understood it). To see VT results you have to make an extra click each time.

I was "confused" when a software like Sabnzb 3/65 VT (100k++ user would be my guess) got a "suspious" rating while a launcher for a private server game (< 2k user) with 10/66 on VT got a clean.

I am using v5. 98a. I downloaded the latest Avast offline installer file to install. In WLC the file was being analyzed but there was no option to check to automatically whitelist it. It got to the point where Windows asked me to wait or cancel the program. I tried waiting for a few minutes but it hung on analysis, so I finally had to close VS via Windows message.

Should be a way to right click a file in Analysis to whitelist without waiting. A bug?

Report the issue though the website if VS is hanging in "analyze". You may disable WLC for the time being if it's misbehaving. It's not an essential feature.

Just check "disable/install" VS to install Avast.

Hi all

Hey guys, here is the latest VS 6.0, I think it is ready for public release. You will notice that the prompts (especially the VoodooAi and WLC results) will make a heck of a lot more sense now.

I also added a CommandLineCloud feature. One of the biggest issues with deny-by-default is handling command lines properly, and often there is not enough file insight to provide the user to give them the best recommendation. So what CommandLineCloud does is automatically add blocked command lines to our database, and I will review and either approve or deny them, that way the next time a user encounters a command line block, it will be handled automatically and properly. So in a couple of months, you should see and even further reduction of command line blocks. Over the years we have figured out how to reduce them pretty well, but this will reduce the blocks much further.

I really will catch up on everything I missed asap… I am finally at a good stopping point with the code but I have several other things that I need to real quick.

Should I just wait until v6.0 is officially released or is this version 5.98b technically stable enough with most bugs worked out?

New version VS 5.98d beta released:
Hey guys, I am totally worn out but we can talk about command lines and other stuff asap. There are a couple of minor new features on the Basic tab in Settings. Maximum file upload size and now it is optional to automatically clean the temp folders.

VS 5.98d beta

SHA-256: 4df41ac35fcea29adc69204f0a5cd7471f974e4a774da70312ea65048308e093

Thank you guys, talk to you soon!
Setting the maximum file upload is an excellent feature for slow or capped internet connections as mentioned here:
Hi, first post as a newish user of pro. Having a problem with the new whitelist feature in the beta.

I have a game exe that goes into “analyzing” and is stuck there and while so VS is constantly uploading to the internet. I assume it is uploading the file (500MB) but as I have only a slow upload bandwidth (1Mbit/s) is takes ages and also swamps the connection slowing everything else down. There is no option the classify the file as safe or cancel the analysis.

As an aside I tried creating a firewall rule but as soon as I tick the box VS then itself becomes unresponsive for a few minutes. Happens again when I try clearing it.

Does this make sense?
Response from @danb :
Yeah, thank you for mentioning this, I have been meaning to do something along these lines.

Now there is a “Maximum file upload size” on the VoodooShield Settings / Basic tab. Just set that to 25-100MB or whatever and it should all work great, if not please let me know.

Hey Baldrick,

I put the rules option back in the user prompt and made some other small tweaks to the rules. I have not tested it extensively, but it should be pretty close. But if you find anything odd with the rules please let me know.

About the cmd blocks… can you please email them to me and I will take a look to figure out what we need to do?
