Beta testing launched for Dr.Web 11.0 for UNX mail servers and Dr.Web 11.0.3 for Linux

June 6, 2017

Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web welcomes all users to participate in the beta testing of Dr.Web 11.0 for UNIX mail servers and Dr.Web Anti-virus 11.0.3 for Linux. Both products have been revamped and equipped with new features that enhance security and make them easier to administer.

New in Dr.Web for UNIX mail servers:

  • A brand-new architecture— now, instead of integrating with mail servers, the product interacts with them using standard mail server services (Milter, Spamd, Rspamd);
  • The product can now be transparently integrated with communication channels that use the standard protocols SMTP, POP3 and IMAP (this mode is only available under GNU/Linux);
  • Unwanted incoming email content is now stored in a separate password-protected archive instead of the quarantine;
  • A native control web interface has replaced Webmin;
  • OpenLDAP and Active Directory service information can now be used in mail filtering rules;
  • Product status statistics and important event notifications (e.g., regarding blocked emails) can now be sent over SNMP;
  • The Clamd module can now be used to scan messages on mail servers that do not use Milter/Spamd/Rspamd;
  • Sender/recipient address validation over DNSxL.

New in Dr.Web Anti-virus for Linux:

  • Email received via IMAP(S)/POP3(S) is now scanned.
  • Email received via SMTP(S) is now scanned.

Doctor Web invites anyone wanting to test drive the new features in Dr.Web 11.0 for UNIX Mail servers and Dr.Web Anti-virus 11.0.3 for Linux to take part in the beta testing.

Doctor Web changes its policy regarding the recovery of ransomware-corrupted files

March 28, 2017

Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web has announced that its policy regarding the recovery of ransomware-corrupted files has changed. According to the new rules, free data recovery is now only available to users of commercial Dr.Web licenses provided that the Dr.Web components responsible for reducing the risk of Trojan.Encoder-caused infections were properly configured and running at the moment of infection.

Currently, encryption ransomware remains one of the most severe threats on the World Wide Web, and the number of victims requesting assistance from the Dr.Web support service is steadily growing. Although some Dr.Web anti-virus products incorporate features that provide protection against encryption ransomware and enable users to recover corrupted files, many owners of Dr.Web licenses do not use them, thus reducing the probability of having their files recovered successfully—this is very apparent to the support engineers who examine the Dr.Web logs attached to data-recovery requests.

Therefore, Doctor Web has amended its data recovery policy, which previously allowed all users who purchase commercial Dr.Web licenses to enjoy free decryption of their corrupted files. From now on, free data recovery is only available to users of commercial Dr.Web licenses provided that the Dr.Web components responsible for reducing the risk of Trojan.Encoder-caused infections were properly configured and running at the moment of infection.

The Doctor Web webpage about encryption ransomware now also features a list of reasons why the company can refuse free data recovery requests from users who have purchased commercial licenses for Dr.Web Anti-virus and Dr.Web Security Space. Those whose requests have been declined will instead be offered the option to purchase Dr.Web Rescue Pack which incorporates a decryption utility.

Dear Dr.Web Users! Today an anti-virus alone cannot provide sufficient protection against encryption ransomware. You need our comprehensive security solutions: Dr.Web Security Space , which incorporates Preventive Protection technologies as well as the Data Loss Prevention component, or Dr.Web Desktop Security Suite which includes our Comprehensive Protection license as well as the subscription package Dr.Web Premium. If for some reason you bought a license for just the anti-virus, you can upgrade it to enjoy comprehensive protection.

Home license upgrade—free of charge for up to 5 PCs or at the renewal price Business license upgrade—at a renewal discount
