    Hello all! I want to congratulate the whole small, but friendly and very effective Emsisoft team on its 15th anniversary! A-Squared, which appeared in Austria, has become an excellent product - Emsisoft Anti-Malvare! Special thanks to Christian Mairoll for the constant concern about the development of Emsisoft! For almost 7 years with you and completely satisfied with the program and the presence of a great forum! I want to wish you success and further development and prosperity!

    When a program changes (via an update) and the warning alert comes up ("This program has been changed, Update/Remove rule"), a "Do not show again for this program" tick-box would be quite handy, especially for programs that auto-update often. It'd be a quick shortcut to using Protection/Application Rules/specific rule/"Don't alert when this file changes".

    This may have been around for ever but I have only just noticed it. When you select a file in quarantine and click restore, if it was in fact the wrong file selected there is no way to cancel the restoration process. The only option is to say yes or no to add it to the exclusion list. Even closing the confirmation window doesn't cancel, it just restores the file anyway. It may be worth considering adding a cancel button to this dialog to enable a back-out without restoring the file. Thanks ... 👍

    It is theoretically possible for the WFP (Windows Filtering Platform) driver used by Emsisoft Anti-Malware to cause such an issue, however it might be more likely for it to be an extension, or perhaps just a poorly designed website.

    I'm wondering whether the lock up was triggered by you turning debug logging off - I have had this problem since late August whereby, 9 times out of ten, if I turn debug logging off, a2service will crash shortly afterwards and cause Windows to hang completely. I opened a thread about it here https://support.emsisoft.com/topic/29882-a2serviceexe-application-error/ but it was taken to pm in late September for some reason. I've supplied them with several dump files from Windows and from procdump but, as yet, they have not been able to fix the problem.

    Well, it has happened, though not at start-up. This morning, I was using my EliteBook, which has the current stable version 2018.11.0.9073 (it was never switched to the beta feed), and around 10:40 CET decided it was time for a break. On returning, noted that the screen was black. First assumption was that it was in sleep but the power button was illuminated constantly, not blinking. Couldn't get any response so invoked a BSOD at about 11:08. On restarting, saw (as expected) that a2service.exe had bombed at 10:58:11. So, should I send the dump? Sadly, there are no debug logs. Ironically, the morning's work was documenting a UI problem and I had temporarily turned off debugging to be able to copy the logs after my break. I still have a dump taken when using 2018.11.0.9073 beta on my Dell stationary. It occurred (2018-12-05) when I set my printer preferences to 'duplex' to print a document. Would that be of any use, or can I delete it?

    That depends on when law enforcement and security companies are able to gain access to the servers operated by these criminals and "liberate" their database of private keys.

    @Tarnak I recommend sending an e-mail to [email protected], and they can let you know what options we have available for you.

    Please upload an encrypted file or ransom note to ID-Ransomware and copy/paste the results here for one of the experts to look at. https://id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com

    Thanks marko. Making AV software bug lists available for the public isn't best practice and might compromise your system. Most bugs are rare and won't be noticeable for most users, no sense to inform everyone about a bug on W7 *32, while most of us run *64 bit sytems. Besides that, the list will contain minor bugs which have low prio and will be fixed in a future releases. When you notice unexpected behavior, like current performance lags, it's good to post such findings here in the beta testers channel so all beta users will be informed, or you can ask me in PM. Sometimes issues are known, sometimes they are not, so its good to post findings here, although in some circumstances such feedback might be obsolete. Cheers

    In this case I don't think VirusTotal would have shown us detecting it if you did the URL scan, but if you did a search for the domain then you'd get to see a list of scanned files at that domain (among other things): https://www.virustotal.com/#/domain/img1.wsimg.com VirusTotal doesn't always show us detecting a malicious URL, even when it's in our database and EAM detects it. Our malware analysts have noticed this as well, however we're not sure why it happens.

    It looks like GlobeImposter 2.0. There's no known way to decrypt files that have been encrypted by GlobeImposter 2.0 without first obtaining the private key from the criminals who made/distributed the ransomware.

    Hi there, I have also been infected by this virus. the documents have extension name .Pumax and pretty much all directories have jpgs, mp3's etc with .Pumax at the end. Ofcourse unable to open. It appears the files in my main desktop directory are untouched. If there is a a readily available decryptor out there that can allow me to access them that would be great otherwise I will have to wait it out. The virus jumped onto my PC as a pretend Windows updater and then a bunch of programs starting running by themselves on startup etc. I believe I have removed the virus from my PC but my files are my main concern. Thankyou and hopefully someone takes the time to help out, All the best.
