  1. Could you block screen captures of the Kaspersky on screen keyboard? Malware could take multiple screen captures and those captures could be used to determine a users password.
  2. I connected my usb external hard drive to my PC and Kaspersky does not show the device on the External Device Scan screen. In the Kaspersky Reports, it does show "External Device Scan, No threats detected"
  3. I set the connection to unmetered in Windows settings. The Kaspersky system tray tooltip and the system tray right click menu, both show the update is 0%. On the Kaspersky update screen, the update is 32%.
  4. Mobile hotspot. I did not lose signal while KIS was updating. In the Windows network options, I have it set to metered. I waited. KIS is set to "Do Not use proxy server". Main power. No gaming profile. 28 day left on trial. I attached the log. I tried uploading the zip file to http://getsysteminfo.com but it did not upload. log.txt GetSystemInfo_LAPTOP_Laptop_2018_07_02_03_51_28.zip
  5. Network Monitor shows the Total data for Firefox is 1.43MB. The received data is 245.47MB and the sent data is 28.59MB. The total data should be 274.06MB.
  6. I installed KIS a few days ago. I have a 64k internet connection. The database update progress bar gets stuck at 86%. I have a network monitoring app called NetWorx installed on my computer. Networx shows that KIS has used 380mb of data over the past 4 days. log.txt
  7. If you had a virus on your computer, it could have captured and sent your account user names, passwords and secret question/answers to the virus creator. If you do online shopping, your debit/credit card numbers could have been sent to the virus creator. If you do online banking/investing, fraudulent transactions that would have been displayed on the webpage could have been hidden, the attacker could have setup automated fund transfers or bill pay. The attacker might have captured your financial account's routing and account numbers, which could be used to withdraw money from your accounts. If you have a google account, the attacker could have created a malicious Google App Script. If you have created google app scripts to automate tasks, malicious code could have been added to those scripts. It is possible that a malicious script could download malware to your computer, but if you have antivirus installed, it should prevent your computer from getting infected. The attacker could have setup email forwarding to forward your emails to their account. The attacker could have created an email filter to delete important emails. It would be smart to change all of your account passwords and secret question/answers. Use a password manager to create a secure and different password for each account. If there is a data breach and one account gets hacked, the attacker can not use that password to gain access to your other accounts. Contact your financial institutions and tell them what happened. You might need new card numbers or new account numbers. Check your account statements. The law requires financial institutions to reverse fraudulent transactions have have occurred within the past 60 days.
  8. Add an option that would allow KAV to share encrypted updates with computers on the network that are running KAV. Windows 10 has an "Allow downloads from other PCs" option for windows updates.
  9. Only allow paid users to disable participation in the Kaspersky Security Network. By not allowing free users to disable this option, Kaspersky would collect more potential malware/phishing samples. This would improve protection for all users.
  10. Windows 10 is able to share updates with other computer on a local network. Could you make KIS share virus database updates with other computers on a local network? Instead of my desktop and laptop both downloading the same updates from the Kaspersky server, could you make it possible for KIS to search the local network for virus database updates. If virus database updates are found on a computer that is connected to the local network, then download the updates from that computer instead of the Kaspersky server. I have a metered internet connection and this would save bandwidth.
  11. Most people have a metered internet connection. Could you add a bandwidth monitor to KIS? The ability to monitor only selected networks (Ethernet or WiFi). The ability to monitor only selected WiFi networks. The ability to block internet access once a data usage limit is exceeded. The ability to see data usage per application. The ability to sync data usage with other home computers via the cloud. A windows desk band that shows internet connection speed and data usage.
