We’re pleased to announce that the new BETA version of ImunifyAV is now available in the beta channel.
The ImunifyAV v4.6 release introduces the following changes and features:
- Reducing system load for real-time scanner
( less memory, faster scans )
- Enhanced malware verdicts in the Malware Scanner
- Scanning stability improvements
( Scanning no longer depends on the Imunify360 agent service and requires less resources )
- Security and Performance improvements
- CLI command changes
Scanning stability improvements
The scan script now starts in the “detached mode”, so that it no longer depends on the running agent service which helped to reduce memory usage.
Another advantage of the new implementation is an improvement of scanning stability, especially for the long-term scans as the scan will be no longer stopped by the agent restart or its “stand-by” mode
Enhanced scan verdicts on the detected malware in the UI
The verdicts for detected binary malware have been enhanced, now you can see a human-readable identifier next to the detected malware.
You can read more about possible reasons at
In short, the verdicts include the following parts:
<type> - SMW/CMW - Server malware (SMW) or Client malware (CMW)
<detected> - SA/INJ/BLKH - Stand alone (SA), Injections (INJ), Blackhash (BLKH).<ID> - the signature ID
<file-type> - the file type, see the table bellow.
<mlwcategory> - the malware category, see the table below for more details
<mlwclassification> - the malware classification, can vary depends on the different cases and signatures.
Security and Performance improvements and fixes.
- The malware scanning script is no longer killed when ImunifyAV goes to “stand-by” mode. (DEF-10832).
- No more errors while restoring files from quarantine if the target files already exist (DEF-10506)
- The malware scanning invokes a hook “malware-scanning / finished” when the scan is canceled during the scan list preparation. (DEF-10528)
- The malware scanning output no longer goes to /var/log/messages, thus no more possible log flood during the scan like “#010#010#010#0” in it. ( DEF-10943 )
