Kaspersky\VPN\KSOS 21.7.5.198


  • , last edited by Dmitriy.Pisarets

    A new beta build is available.

    You can download the distribution kit by the link:

    Kaspersky — Download   

    VPN — Download   

    KSOS — Download   

     

    To test the application, activate the license embedded in the distribution kit.

    You should only use the beta build with this license provided for testing.

    If you use your existing commercial license to activate the beta version of the application, the term of the license spent on the beta-testing will not be compensated. 

      

    There will be no auto-update to this build. It can be downloaded from forum only.

     

    Known issues:

    Useful info:

    • DRV  verifiers are turn off by default now. App - are ON! 
    • Kaspersky is presented in three tiers: Basic, Standard, Plus
    • To activate the trial beta key on the screen with a proposal to enter My Kaspersky, click "Skip"
  • Installed without issue for now. Also i have suggestion - allow add more e-mails account for checking data leaks. As you can see there is only one e-mail connected with my kaspersky portal. I wish add other mails also.

  • Very stable build, update over the previous build was ok again...

    My previous reports about some GUI "issues" still not fixed...

  • No signatures updates  in beta server for 3 days 🤔

  • And even worse, .NET 5 is not supported anymore although Kaspersky 21.5/21.6/21.7 is still based on it. I don't understand that at all. Please switch to .NET 6 as soon as possible. It doesn't make sense testing software which is based on outdated components.

    Install .NET Runtime 5.0.17. This version contains security fixes

    Ya, but from last month. .NET 5 has reached its support cycle last month. Watch this: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/en-us/download/dotnet/5.0

    Yes, it is, but in this case there is no other way out.

  • Yep, I know. And therefore I hope KL will switch to .NET 6 as soon as anyhow possible.

    But that will be in the next version (22.x), not before. I don't think developers will rewrite (edit) the application's GUI code.

    Well, then let's hope that will happen soon. For the time being, I'm using KL 21.3 'cause there is no other adequate option available.

  • hi

    windowsdesktop-runtime-5.0.16-win-x86 has out of date ( not supported by microsoft ) but kaspersky 21.6.7.351 need windowsdesktop-runtime-5.0.16-win-x86 for install .?!

    Well, not only 21.6, but also 21.5 and 21.7 (see posts above). .NET 5.0.17 was the last supported version by Microsoft and got ceased last month. From now on, only .NET 6, which is a LTS version, is supported (and .NET 7 preview of course) by Microsoft. You can use 21.3 which is based on .NET 4.8 that is also a LTS version... as I do. There are no other options right now.

    Install Windows desktop-runtime-5.0.17-win-x86. This version is the latest version of .NET Desktop Runtime 5.0 which contains security fixes.

    Do not mislead users.

    The .NET Desktop Runtime is a runtime that allows you to create a Metro-style user interface. .NET Desktop Runtime 5.0.10 or later (latest NET Desktop Runtime 5.0, version 5.0.17) is required to run and use the Kaspersky 21.4–21.7 GUI.

    The Microsoft .NET Framework is a runtime that allows you to create applications whose modules are written in different programming languages. Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 or higher is required to run and use Kaspersky Lab products.

    Kaspersky Lab applications 21.3 and earlier use only the Microsoft .NET Framework to launch and operate. Kaspersky Lab applications 21.4-21.7 use the Microsoft .NET Framework and .NET Desktop Runtime to launch and operate.

    I do know that. For the sake of simplicity, I always call all of them .NET and it has absolutely nothing to do regarding the security of Kaspersky 21.4 and higher. .NET 5 is a core component for Kaspersky and mustn't be based on an outdated software package. It's a waste of time and resources and it makes absolutely no sense to me doing that. Kaspersky is a globally well-known and prestigious security solution and in my opinion it's anyway a must developing security software based on supported software components.

    Hi folks

    As you probably know Microsoft has banned downloading certain contents from their websites from Russia.

    How is this affecting the development and quality of Kaspersky products? Does it?

    Thx

    Ya, I do know. Anyway, thanks for the reply.

    PS: Didn't know where to place it otherwise.

    Hi my friends

    I've been just tripped over the following article written by Martin Brinkmann from ghacks.net.

    It's uttermost scary to me to read what Adobe Reader is able to do and being doing with many security solutions including Kaspersky. How is it possible to evade them? It's described to a certain extent, but even more important and essential, can it be fixed in general?

    "Security tools inject DLLs, Dynamic Link Libraries, into applications that are launched on the system, which is necessary to gain access. The blocking prevents the injection from taking place."

    Here is the whole article:

    Report: Adobe Reader is blocking antivirus tools from scanning loaded PDF documents
