So has the demise of Webroot started already?
Where did the Business Endpoint Protection forum go? Is this the beginning of the end? The product was absolutely filled with bugs and errors. It was obvious support wasn’t doing anything about the problem. Does anyone have any idea if OpenText was going to fix things or should we all start looking for something new (and a whole lot better)?
Silly 2FA "Security" questions
So I’m trying to set up 2FA for my Webroot console login. I plan on using an authenticator app, but I haven’t gotten far enough to actually make that happen because I can’t get that far in the process. I would like to know if I’m the only one who finds the “Security Question” portion of setting up 2FA on Webroot to be foolish and insecure. The problem is that before I can get to setting up my authenticator with Webroot, I have to choose answers to two “Security Questions”. Nothing new about security questions, right? You choose a question from those provided and put in your answer (usually something unique to the user’s life history). It’s a good way to avoid stolen passwords from allowing access to an account. It’s not foolproof - some bad actor could possibly know a user well enough to guess the answers - but it’s a fairly secure second-string method of verifying the users identity in the case of something like a lost password or other sensitive operation. However, Webroot’s executio
Adware.FusionCore Not Detected
Just an FYI, A Business SecureAnywhere client had a noticeable increase in DNS requests coming from their network with no apparent cause. As a precaution I temporarily installed and ran MalwareBytes which detected Adware.FusionCore on one of the systems. This had gone undetected by WebRoot and Windows Defender.
Point of Sale Barcode scanners returning skewed scans
I have an interesting issue, Our Point of Sale stations that utilize bar code scanners are returning skewed results that are running Webroot. The issue occurs in IE, Firefox and Chrome. I have disabled the plugin for webroot for all 3 browsers with the same result. Conversely POS stations running kaspersky do not have the same issue. The condition can reproduced readily on any POS station. Scanning to wordpad or note pad works fine so I know the hardware is ok. Our POS software is cloud based, but I am able to replicate the issue when scanning to google translate. I believe the issue is regarding mixed content. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
2-Factor authentication implementation time-frame
Hi Webroot, For nearly 4 years you've been saying that 2FA is in the works, but it still hasn't been implemented (The security code isn't 2FA, it's just a second password). Have you released a timeline where your customers can expect to have 2FA security available?
how can I assure you that my website is trustworthy?
I have webroot installed on my home computer and when I type in a word to search for my own web site (checking if it's above the fold) and when it comes up on the search results page there is a red exclamation icon beside my site's search results ... how can I assure you that my website is safe an make that icon disappear?
Broken Agent commands
As of lately a majority of my endpoints don't accept agent commands, it says they either elapsed, executed (but is never executed on the endpoints) or not received. Sometimes it can take days or weeks for the endpoints to show executed even though they check in every day. Changing policy is instant. After a remote session and submit logs to Webroot, Webroot says there is no fix for this at this time. Does anyone else experience this issue?
Agent commands not received (version 18.104.22.168)
Hello everyone, I recently noticed that running an agent command like 'Scan' or 'System Optimizer' from the GSM console ends up with a 'Not received yet' status forever. I tried on different devices, some having a firewall and proxy protecting them and some not secured. The commands are executed after a manual 'Refresh configuration' only on few of the devices I tested on. I think this has something to do with the latest version updates, since I did not have any issues before. Has someone experienced something similar? Thank you.
Right click scan option is missing
One of our computers has lost the ability to right-click on a file/folder and scan it. This option is no longer in the right-click menu options. It was there originally when the software was installed on the computer. It just vanished?! The scan settings policy enables right-click scanning in Windows explorer. And opening up the endpoint software settings does show this option as ticked. This is only happening on 1 of our computers. All the others are fine. The Win7 PC has been rebooted plenty of times, but has not fixed it. I have even tried uninstalled the software, and reinstalled, but this right-click scan option is still missing. Has anyone else seen this? And if so, how did you over-come it? It's not the end of the world, as we can still initiate a custom scan in the endpoint software itself. It's just annoying. Thanks.
Primary Browser Doesn't Work
Looking through the updates to the GSM this morning and I noticed that the Primary Browser report has basically no clue what browser is the primary one on my endpoints. All, but two of my endpoints are using IE as their primary browser based on the report. I know this to be incorrect because I set the primary browser to Firefox on almost all my endpoints. There's one that requires IE as the primary, but this is due to a software on it and it's a server that only I use. I even have Firefox installed on it and use it for anything other than that software and it can't be set as the primary due to the software. OS doesn't appear to matter. I've got Windows XP through Windows 10 desktops and Windows Server 2003 through Windows Server 2012 R2 servers. The reporting is reading incorrectly on all these OSs. Apparently there is a bug in the software that is misreading this information from the endpoints. Just thought you might want to fix the issue.
Query regarding restricting Webroot policies
A customer has requested Webroot access in order to view the devices for their site. We have created access, and they can only see the devices for their site but they can see all the global policies for our other customers. How do we restrict which policies they can see? Below are detail description of issue. -Partner has given "site only access" to one of the test user "XXXX" but user is able to see global policies of the other sites too. -Checked and found "Include global policy" is checked while creating Webroot site. -Please confirm is there any functionality by using which we can give access to the user for an only particular site and restrict global policies of the other sites.
Block execution of unknown software
Through testing some "unknown to Webroot (or any other AV)" malware, I feel WebRoot may be insufficient protection for my clients. By allowing untrusted code to run, it seems a lot of ransomware can get through without a lot of difficulty (the first ransomware-as-a-service a colleague tried with Webroot was successful while other well known competing AVs were able to block it with their own heuristics. Webroots heuristics were turned to max also. While it might be possible to do rollback, WebRoot doesn't do rollback on network drives and unknown applications are allowed access to these resources. Since this is often deployed as a business AV solution, this is unacceptable. Is there functionality in WebRoot currently, or that could be easily added to straight up block execution of unknown executables (as a configurable option of course) -- ideally whitelisting anything SIGNED by a trusted entity (eg. Microsoft)? Or is there a way I can already do this? I know that I could u
Change Keycode delay following command being marked as "Executed"
[b]Questions:[/b] [list] [*]How long should an Endpoint continue to show in a Site once the 'Command Log' shows the [i]Change Keycode[/i] command as "Executed"? [*]Should a [i]Change Keycode[/i] across GSMs (instead of between Sites in the same GSM) be expected to take notably longer? [*]Does the Endpoint's host computer need to be restarted for the Change Keycode command to finish? [/list] [b][u]Background[/u][/b][spoiler]In the past I've had problems using the [i]Change Keycode[/i] command to move WRSA Endpoints between Sites within the same GSM. Just didn't seem reliable. It's been a while since I've last used that command as it is, but now we're attempting to transfer a customer's WRSA Endpoints to their new MSP's GSM (at their request). Webroot Support confirmed that doing this is possible and officially recommended using the [i]Change Keycode[/i] command over a uninstall-reboot-reinstall of the Endpoint. That Site's 'Command Log' shows the command as "Executed" for many of tho
Sonicwall AV is blocking Webroot downloads. Can you please work with Sonicwall to correct this?
The Sonicwall Antivirus is suddenly identiifying Webroot dowloads as Trojans. Can someone from Webroot please contact Sonicwall to correct this? From what I have read, Java updates and Sophos are also being flagged as Trojans. They are both working with Sonicwall to correct the situation. Can someone from Webroot do the same since it may not be the same signature that is blocking webroot. It does not seem to prevent webroot from working, but it does prevent version updates and fresh installs. Thanks for looking into this.
Endpoints needs attention, even after clean up...
Hi, I was wondering why my site is always displaying the "endpoints need attention". I cleaned up the computers. I did many full scans after and all of them said Protected and did not show any infected files anymore. But in my console I see the "endpoints need attention, last threat on 11-16-2016 (2 days before)" for the same 2 computers. Is there a way to reset in the console so that they are now viewed as protected? I don't know if you understand my issue...< Thanks !
Sophos Intercept X Comparison
Hey All, I wanna share my response to a fellow community member and Webroot Ambassador[b]@GryozoK[/b] in a post he made in a private area about Sophos Intercept X and it competing with Webroot. This will be a long post but I'll first place his quote first and then below my actual response due to my experience in vetting out all the "Next-Gen" Antivirus/Endpoint Security products and my real world review of it. I thought this would be beneficial to all the community as it dispels some of what Sophos is actually doing with Intercept X. Here is @GryozoK Post: Sophos says that InteceptX: 1. is ligth-weight agent 2. no agent daily updates 3. can protect against all 24 of the cpu level exploits 4. detects mass encryption (ransomware) 5. cut off connection to the attacking host 6. remediating any encrypted documents using a local mirror image copy All these sayings above seems to be similar to what WSA advantages used to be up until now - and actually WSA cann
can i add a password or PIN when Turn off webroot secureAnywhere temporally?
Hi folks, We can add the option "shutdown webroot" check here: [url=http://prntscr.com/ico9f6]http://prntscr.com/ico9f6[/url] on the policies manager for the agent, i get a captcha when click on shutdown but is there an option we can set a admin password or PIN when that option is selected? that way only the admin can shut it down.
Post clean up scan after a clean scan?
I work for an MSP and we have Webroot integrated with our Datto RMM software. I have been getting alerts for threats detected but when I go to the device in the Webroot console it just shows a post clean up scan. No threats previously detected. Below is a screenshot that shows an example. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/e0e79e37-e976-4467-b5bd-7e281cd046ea.png[/img] Why is this?
Does Webroot endpoint protection work in China?
We're a managed service provider located in the US and one of our clients has an office in Hong Kong. We manage endpoints in other countries but haven't had any clients in China. Wanted to see if anyone has had experience with managing Chinese endpoints in the GSM and could share any advice or issues that might come up. Thanks, Dan
