VoodooShield v5 STABLE Thread
« on: May 18, 2019, 05:06:56 pm »
Hey guys, quick update…

We released VS 5.00 to the public the other day, it is the same version you guys are already using, so there is no reason to upgrade.

I am not sure if you guys have noticed or not, but VS has been gaining a lot of traction lately.  This never would have happened if you guys were not behind VS and offering suggestions and helping me along the way.

The VS supporters understand what I have understood for a very long time.  The only way to truly secure a computer is to utilize a locking mechanism.  You guys further understand that the locking mechanism needs to be user-friendly enough for the masses.  And you guys also understand that the ONLY way to provide the most robust and effective lock possible, is through our patented toggling technology.  In other words, you can only lock a computer so tight before it will not even boot properly.  But if you implement a toggling mechanism, you can apply the absolute strongest lock possible, once the computer is up and running.

Anyway, things are looking great.  Sorry I am not nearly as active on forums as I was before.  The whole point of developing VS is to get it to is boring stage.  And I think we are almost there 😉.

Thank you guys!

Dan

For what it's worth, and appreciating that in truth I'm not very important, I run only VS and Windows Firewall with all outbound prohibited for realtime protection, and Malwarebytes Free and EEk for monthly feel-good scans.  The only special settings in VS are Rules locking down %Appdata/Local/Temp% and Program Data, just in case.  These Rules are inconvenient as some vendors like Oracle Java haven't got the message yet.  But I feel safe: maybe VS can be bypassed, I'm certainly not holding my breath.

Hi,
Can anyone confirm that "Download VoodooShield User Guide" is working?

For me it's not working!

For me it works.  I have K-Meleon v76.1.1 using the Goanna engine in Win7 Home Premium x64 SP1.  Make sure your browser settings include handling PDF files.  Depending on the site setup, K-M will display some and download others--I haven't been able to work out exactly what is involved in this.

We are using the VS secure site: https://www.voodooshield.com/Download/VoodooShieldUserGuide.pdf.

People seem to get varying mileage from Chrome, it's not on my box; Edge seems to be rather experimental at the moment.  My fallback is IE11, which is usually very reliable in a Microsoft kind of way.

I'm trying to figure if OS settings could inter...  Oh.  Check your VS settings.  See if your PDF solution is set on your web apps, and look to see what your default download location is: do you have a Ruleset locking that down?

I sent in a report to the Edge development team. Hopefully this will evolve. FWIW I'm using Edge v76.0.159.0 (Official build) dev (64-bit).

@Andi @gorblimey @Telos - I had trouble trying to download it recently with Edge Dev Chromium but finally got it, I think by reverting an Edge://flags feature - maybe the "block unsafe downloads over insecure connections ... " I had trouble as well on my last laptop but forget how I solved it then. The User Guide could use a little tweaking but I know that some developers find creating/updating user guides as time-consuming as writing code.  8)

The PDF is on a secure link. Resetting the flag had no effect.

From my screenshoot you can see that AdGuard is disabled.

RE Dan's recent post:

"...And you guys also understand that the ONLY way to provide the most robust and effective lock possible, is through our patented toggling technology.  In other words, you can only lock a computer so tight before it will not even boot properly.  But if you implement a toggling mechanism, you can apply the absolute strongest lock possible, once the computer is up and running."

I assume that Dan is speaking here about "Smart mode", which toggles automatically between on and off?

But I hear that many people run VS in "always on" mode. If you are one of them, have you experienced any issues?
If you use Smart mode, have you found it more user-friendly?

Just curious about this issue.
