i see it same like you. For me the new CIS in default settings gives not the same protection like the old V5. And u can see the bypasses here in the Forum very often. And in my tests i see it often too. But the most of the users close their eyes for this cause usability is more important for them. I think its dangerous, cause now, the usability means "i close my eyes for all, cause CIS will handle it" ... I am still on the point that u get the best security if u try to understand your security software and how to handle it by yourself.
The only change in default settings
in V5 & V6 I know is now in V6 COM & Protected thing alert is automatically allowed/blocked as per the specific situation, in V5 you get popup for COM & Protected thing.
I dont know any invisible/internal changes or m I missing something here.
In my few test I did to compare V5 & V6, the protection was same (FW & D+ with internet security config & without AV & cloud AV). There were no active protection in case of any.
About bypass, do you mean in default settings of V6 few malware bypassed but not in default setting of V5?
In real world scenario, CIS 6 default is excellent specially for average/majority of users.
Experts can always change the settings to their needs.
But I agree with the GUI things. Basic or Advanced GUI, average users never try to change any settings so it doesn't matter to them how the GUI is. And DEVS have confirmed GUI changes will be there in the subsequent versions, I hope the important changes mentioned in the forum here are implemented.
