Sadly, BD can do nothing when facing malware that uses DirctSyscall, e.g., #Magniber. Also, DiskWriter can bypass BitDefender's Advanced Threat Defense easily, while WV can block both of them.Why would you need Wisevector ? if you run Bitdefender.....
Diskwriter is a very nasty little guy, no? A new batch (sadly mostly mal-coded) cane out the other day and WVSX's AI continues to detect/delete (with real-time disabled as otherwise there isn't much of a challenge).Sadly, BD can do nothing when facing malware that uses DirctSyscall, e.g., #Magniber. Also, DiskWriter can bypass BitDefender's Advanced Threat Defense easily, while WV can block both of them.
What's more, with Firewall and HIPS, WV is still free (at least for now), and much more lightweight.
So, though BD is good enough, I like WV better.
Wisevector causes NextDNS to stop working, this is the error I get with YogaDNS, configured using NextDNS, with Wisevector installed:
"Third party DNS filter detected on the system."
The regular NextDNS app doesnt work either, it just says it cant connect and the NextDNS dashboard says im connected to the DNS server that the router is configured to use.
Thank you for your prompt replyI really haven't done enough analysis of F-Secure Safe to give a meaningful answer. However rule of thumb is that there is seldom need for the simultaneous utilization of multiple products with similar defensive strategies (although the addition of the AI in WV as well as the developers obvious dedication to the product in my opinion gives WVSX the advantage).
please enter cmd and input regsvr32 "C:\Program Files (x86)\WiseVector\WiseVectorExt_X64.dll" if your OS is 64bit; Input regsvr32 "C:\Program Files (x86)\WiseVector\WiseVectorExt.dll" if your OS is 32bit.
