1. What actually happened or you saw:
Currently if a malware locks the screen with CIS installed, often the only way that users can get around this is to restart the computer.
2. What you wanted to happen or see:
The idea is that if the computer has been locked by malware, such as ransomware, CIS would provide the ability to click a few buttons on your keyboard to kill all applications which are locking the screen, which would include the ransomware.
3. Why you think it is desirable:
Because when you CIS encounter ransomware then maybe with a few keystrokes close the ransomware. This will be very helpful as it is not possible for CIS to detect all ransomware, and although many methods for them to lock the screen are protected by CIS, it will always be possible for something to somehow get past and lock the screen. Thus, this feature would be very helpful.
4. Any other information:
A function similar to this is included in Tiranium Internet Security:
I would tend to agree with qmarius. It would be better to prevent apps from being able to do this to begin with than to make a way to close it once it has taken over. Thus, as there are already bug reports, which I believe handle every aspect of this Wish, I am not sure where to go from here.
Sorry, I had missed this reply. If you had wanted CIS to be better protected from malware which can lock the screen, then would you agree that those bug reports already submitted essentially already cover this? In that case, would you also agree that this wish can be moved to Rejected, as bug reports are already submitted?
Thank you for submitting this Wish Request. I have now moved this to the WAITING AREA.
Please be sure to vote for your own wish, and for any other wishes you also support. It is also worthwhile to vote against wishes you think would be a waste of resources, as implementing those may slow down the wishes you would really like to see added.
I would like to thank everyone who has voted on this particular enhancement. As this wish has accumulated the necessary 15 points I have added this to the tracker for consideration by the devs. However, do note that even though this wish will be considered by the devs, it does not necessarily mean that it will be implemented. I will update this topic when I have any additional information.
