    It's beyond my comprehension, how do you get updates so fast? It is certain that this is not about luck! For me, only 3-4 days ago, I received an update on 26.0.18.71! I will probably have to wait another 2 weeks for the New update.

    Hello,

    Yes, you are correct, 26.0.18.74 just came out yesterday evening and I was about to announce it today. 😁

    Since most of you have voted to keep the product features and new releases thread without additional comments, so we can keep better track of the changelog, my suggestion is that we keep this thread to discuss anything about updates and new releases and i'll edit the posting permissions for the main thread.

    Cheers.

    My Android BD Mobile Security just let me know about an update to 3.3.173.2001, which includes Dark Theme. Otherwise, we can always look at @Gjoksi's signature to find out what the latest updates are, since he's directly linked to the mothership and gets them first 😊😊

    It asked for system restart, for the changes to take effect.

    So, could be some important stuff fixed and/or implemented in the newest build.

    @Scott I know that when you will see this comment, your first thought would be "Damn, how does he get the latest build before anyone else?", but believe me, i can't give you the answer to that question. 😊

    I just got a pop-up saying that a system restart is needed for the changes to take effect...

    Was wondering what could cause this notification to pop-up.

    I thought: Could be Bitdefender upgrading to the latest build?

    And (again) i was right.

    @Alexandru_BD You and @Mike_BD work at Bitdefender, BUT i always get the latest build before you do. Remember that! 🤣

    Got it this morning. 😊

    Question: while updating Bitdefender to a new/latest version, it quits the protection for some seconds (a windows pops up saying the protection of the system is not given) and starts up later. Means, Bitdefender is not able to protect the system for this period of time? Am I correct with this assumption? If so, Bitdefender should only update all its components to the new/latest version while making a restart of the system. 🤔

  • Alexandru_BD
    Options

    Hello @gur_helios and welcome to the Community!

    Some modules are turned off for a very short time while the patch is being applied. Bitdefender has many systems that back up each other and provide protection.

    By design, the developers would not make an update system that would leave customers vulnerable in any way 😎

    Cheers

    For some of us, it takes about a week for the staged rollout to hit us. Once in a while if you want to do a system tray right click update, go for it. Otherwise, as long as you have BD set to automatically update, it will let you know to restart your PC to install it.

    Oh, and by the way @Renegaderenick welcome to Bitdefender and this community :) :)

    Hello,

    The latest version's changelog says, "Process-MemoryScan detection"

    Does it mean Bitdefender has added Memory scanning functionality now? TBH, I thought Bitdefender already has this capability. Bitdefender already provides stellar protection and now with the ability of memory scanning things will only get better.

    About the second changelog, I'm confused at what it actually is, "Enable fileless/cmd line rescan detection"

    Is there any details available regarding these two new things?

  • Alexandru_BD
    Options

    Hello @HomoSapiens,

    'Process-MemoryScan' detection is a more technical term, but I will elaborate and provide a bit more context regarding the newly introduced settings. A new setting called 'Scan application memory' will be added in the Antivirus Advanced settings, below the 'Scan potentially unwanted applications' feature. On Antivirus Free it should be off, as it is part of Advanced Settings. According to the description, this will scan for malicious activity in the memory of running applications.

    'Enable fileless/cmd line rescan detection' is a separate setting that will make its way into the product as 'Scan command line' and will also be present in Advanced Settings from Antivirus, below 'Scan process memory'. This scans the command line of newly launched applications to prevent fileless attacks. Same as the above feature, on Antivirus Free it should be off, as it's included in Advanced Settings.

    I hope the above information brings more clarity 🙂

    Thank you for letting us know! I'll still keep using the silent update workaround until next week then. But it's very nice to know a "finalized" fix is soon to be pushed out. Hope the testing goes well!

    Hi sxs9001, unfortunately, the post you commented on and liked, was for another issue having to do with startup scan activity, and not our issue. It may take a bit of time for the engineers to read any of the log files submitted in the last couple of days and to figure out a resolution. I'm sure we'll probably be notified in this thread or other threads when that patch is released. Your help and patience have been a blessing here :)

    Two program updates in one day? Hmm, that sounds damn fast.

    I guess that "bdsmartdb.dll" file will solve the high CPU / disk usage.

    All other downoladed files are common threat database files which are downloaded every hour or so.

    NOTE: A device restart is NOT required for the changes to take effect. You will get a pop-up window notifying you that a program update with the latest bugs fixed and performance improvements is in progress.
