Does this also need a new local client?
@olli_s No new client is needed. Everything got rolled out without issues and without noteworthy downtime.
@olli_s True. There is no visible changes. This was solely some internal things regarding the processing of inspection data and results, but from a technical point of view, they were significant. However, it allows us to build better rules. So going forward this is a significant improvement. We also improved the performance of the processing.
@olli_s What you may start to see is more entries for programs that come with both 32 and 64bit files. Currently, these will be duplicates in the UI, but later they will be "grouped", so only when you decide to expand e.g. CCleaner, will you learn that we detect both ccleaner.exe and ccleaner64.exe
So it is "just" another step in improving the detection.
Cool, I am keen on the "Group" feature.
Three months have passed and we have received a lot of awesome feedback on this forum and directly via email.
This has kept our developers very busy during the hot summer, and their pipeline is still overflowing.
We had intended to make more frequent releases with smaller changes. However, based on our learnings, we decided to make some fundamentally incompatible changes to the rules, the matching engine and the UI.
We also decided that we needed a new name. Despite our intentions of sharing good CARMA
Next week we start the deployment of the "new product".
First we will be making changes to the rules and the matching engine. So you should expect to see unexpected results
Once these changes manifest, we will be releasing an early alpha version of the new product. Don't be too disappointed, there will not be many visual changes, in the beginning, except the name change - sorry
Shortly after releasing the early alpha version of the new product we will discontinue the SecTeer Personal CARMA. This means that you will need to uninstall Personal CARMA and install the new product.
Coincidentally the new product will be named: VulnDetect
Again thank you very much to everyone who in anyway has contributed to Personal CARMA, now VulnDetect.
I would like to make it clear, that we are (still) firmly committed to providing a free version of VulnDetect for personal use.
@Tom You are on a good way to create a fantastic product.
The advantage in comparison with your competitors is that your updates are verified and if VulnDetect reports an update then we can trust on this information.
