Firefox and WSA EP trial key issue
Hi Guys Currently it is not possible to get the trial key for WSA Endpoint Protection in the Firefox browser. We are redirected to a different subpage and do not get any trial key. Customers are very unhappy with this (over50% are using Firefox) - what can I say to them / when it will be fixed? Regards
Cannot install Webroot SecureAnywhere Mac Client
The dmg opens fine and when I go the next step in the installer I get this error "An error occured while trying to download the neccessary files for this installation. Please double check your Internet connection and try again." This occurs on 2 Macs running 10.8 and 1 running 10.9. I've tried running the installer while on a tethered 3G connection and on the main network. Is there anything else I can try?
Can I remove a threat while backing up files ?
Webtoot has identified a threat while I am backing up files. I am wondering if it is safe to "continue" with removal of the threat while doing the backup? I don't want to interrupt the backup process, but didn't know if I could wait to do the threat removal or not? Thanks, Sam

Microsoft releases new update for Windows 8 Lync app
[img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/9236iEBF4801657755A23.jpg[/img] In December, Microsoft updated its Lync app for Windows 8 [url=http://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft-releases-lync-app-for-windows-81]so it would work with Windows 8.1[/url].

Another bad news for version 126.96.36.199
This one is huge ..... One of our customer has a big issue with new client version. Last update turn off the internet at all endpoints. There was no problem until the update. WSA cut off internet access on all machines where they raised to version .46. They edited policy settings and nothing - only help was to uninstall WSA or its complete shutdown. He can not send us logs from machines because as soon as they turn on the WSA - internet connection will be blocked. Do you or support can somehow remotely help with this situation?
Console security risk ?
I am impressed by Webroot Secure Anywhere but am a little concerned about the agent commands area in the console. In particular the "download and run a file" option. I appreciate that the the console is protected by a password and security code but this is not really full two factor authentication - in that a key logger could theoretically pickup entires as they are made and guess / brute force the security code. In the absence of a full two factor authentication ( a la e.g. Google 2FA) it is at least theoretically possible for my credentials to be compromised . In that event a malicious impostor who succeeded in getting into my console would de facto have access to all the computers on that keycode via the agent commands facility ? Should the more powerful agent commands not be removed from the console in the interest of greater security? Rocky

Online Backup - who uses it and what do you use?
I use BackBlaze at home and they do a great job. Not only do they have great online backup service, they also sponsor [url=http://www.worldbackupday.com/]World Backup Da[/url]y. Walter Mossberg just did a [url=http://recode.net/2014/03/11/triple-coverage-back-up-your-computer-in-three-ways/]nice review[/url] of them. They do both consumer and business backups. They also do some really [url=http://blog.backblaze.com/2014/01/21/what-hard-drive-should-i-buy/]nice blog posts[/url] about reliability of hard drives and how they run their business. Their backup saved my bacon as the HD on my old iMac died. I had an external drive I backed up to with Time Machine, but it turned out that drive had errors as well. The online backup ended up doing the trick. Glad I was using belt and suspenders :)
