Innovations in SP2 for AV10

Advanced process protection

For better self-protection of AntiVir, the advanced process protection is enabled by default.

Avira AntiVir Professional - General - Security

Note
The enhanced process protection will also be activated by default in case of an update to SP2 if it has not been configured before or if the dialog General → Security has been opened at least once before.

Updater.exe signature

The AntiVir updater now has a correct VeriSign signature:

AntiVir updater - Advanced - VeriSign signature
