Cam prea curand, dar… a aparut NOD32 v4.0 beta

Public Beta of ESET Smart Security 4 and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 is now available

Pe mine ma intereseaza doar antivirusul, pentru ca firewall-ul nu se compara cu Outpost-ul pe care il rulez cu succes de multi ani. Deci, de ce 4 si de ce asa curand?

SysInspector Integration

Descriere: In version 4 SysInspector will be included as a powerful diagnostic tool allowing in depth analysis of various aspects of the operating system.
Concluzia: neinteresant

Portable Computer Support

Descriere: Version 4 is able to identify, whether the computer is running on battery or not and automatically postpones some scheduled tasks and alerts the user before downloading a large update.
Concluzia: inutil

Exchangeable Media Access Control

Descriere: Automatic scanning of files executed from the exchangeable media is included, the use of Advanced Heuristic can be chosen in the settings.
Concluzia: credeam ca sunt protejat de virusii de pe stick-urile USB si pana acum; neinteresant

Cleaning using an own driver

Descriere: Now cleaning of problematic files is possible through using an own driver. This ensures reliable cleaning of malware which is activated immediately after startup of the computer.
Concluzia: oare e vorba de miniport driver-ul care facea unora probleme la versiunea 3? oricum, ma astept la probleme din cauza astuia

Hidden Confirmation/Information Windows

Descriere: When running a full screen application (game or presentation) information windows are temporarily disabled automatically.
Concluzia: nu stiu de ce e asta un mare feature, mai degraba e trecut la numar; inutil

Enhanced E-mail Clients Support

Descriere: Besides POP3, support for IMAP has been added. Furthermore, Windows Mail, Windows Live Mail and Mozilla Thunderbird e-mail clients are now supported too.
Concluzia: cum eu nu folosesc Outlook, e cam inutil

Large Files Scan

Descriere: This feature assures reliable scanning of 2 GB + files (especially ISO-UDF and RAR).
Concluzia: iar credeam ca sunt protejat si in cazul v2 si v3, dar se pare ca nu e chiar asa... oare?

Other Improvements

Descriere: Version 4.0 includes more than 50 improvements compared to the previous version, among them also a pasword protected uninstallation, easy access to the last on-demand log, Self-Defense, advanced scanner settings and others.
Concluzia: aceasta sectiune e singura in care imi pun speranta si, in final, motivul din care voi face upgrade; nu se vad, dar probabil exista o gramada de imbunatatiri ale sistemului de detectare a virusilor, atat a celor cunoscuti cat si a celor inca necatalogati

Una peste alta, voi face upgrade la mult timp dupa ce vor scoate versiunea finala de NOD32 v.4. In general, versiunile mai noi sunt mai bune, dar acest lucru nu este valabil in cazul ESET (si al altora). Deci v3 va mai locui in systray timp de vreun an pana sa-i faca loc lui v4.
