This update corrects a security vulnerability reported to us by researcher Michael Myng that could allow a privileged attacker to cause a system crash by manipulating in certain way the contents of a configuration file used by Folder Guard.
We consider the severity of this vulnerability "low", because in order to be able to change the configuration files of Folder Guard, the protection must be paused or disabled, and also the user must have the administrator level access to the computer.
As usual, the trial version of Folder Guard 18.7 comes with a free license for 30 days of full use. If you have not tried it yet, please feel free to download it and give it a try.
And, of course, if you have purchased your Folder Guard license within the last 12 months, you can upgrade to this version free of charge (for the earlier purchasers the 50% upgrade discount is also available.)
