  1. Thanks for your post. It helped me realize this is happening to me as well. I have the same version of Windscribe running. I don't use this VPN much and first noticed a problem last night (evening of Feb 17, central US). My Emsisoft doesn't even seem to initiate an hourly update when Windscribe is running. There is no message in the log in this case. It just won't start the update process. If I manually trigger an update with Windscribe running, then I get the same error that you showed in your post. I also have IVPN and Ivacy VPN loaded on my computer. (I only run one at a time of course.) With either IVPN or Ivacy running, Emsisoft updates fine. I tried various Windscribe connection settings and also toggling its built in firewall on and off. Nothing seemed to make a difference, however, and Emsisoft still couldn't connect to the update servers. Thanks.
  2. I think there is at least one version beyond what you have. I have version 2018.12.0.12 for Firefox. The links to the latest version of the extension for both Chrome and Firefox can be found about half way down in this post. Hope that helps!
  3. Hi. This isn't directly in response to your question, but below is a link to an Emsisoft blog post that describes their method of web protection. I think that whether or not to intercept and analyze https traffic is a question that different vendors answer differently. Emsisoft seems to be out of the norm on this since I think that most security vendors do intercept https traffic these days.
  4. It looks like a really bad day for corporate ransomware attacks.
