Today, we are pleased to announce the release of Technology Preview 3 of our upcoming product Linux Security 7.00. It has been a bit over month since we released Technology Preview 2. Last month we have concentrated on improving performance and quality of existing features. Some of the improvements are:
- The on-access scanner cache has been moved from the user-level scanning daemon to the Dazuko kernel module, significantly improving the overall performance for on-access scanning
- Alert screen in Web User Interface has a button for displaying a printable version of the alerts
- A GUI program
fsgavhas been introduced for scanning files and testing integrity
- It is now possible to specify default directories for manual scanning and scheduled scanning tasks. These directories are used in Web User Interface when using the Manual Scanning Wizard or creating a new Scheduled Scanning Task.
The same disclaimer applies as with the last two Technology Previews, even though stability should have improved: preferably test this in a virtual machine environment or a non-critical machine that you don’t mind crashing. This Technology Preview supports upgrade from Linux Server Security 5.30 and later, but it should only be used for testing purposes.
