CIS self protection

When D+ is disabled CIS self protection is also disabled, right? Is this changed in 5.8?

Does other HIPS firewall like OnlineArmor & Outpost are the same too i.e self protection is disabled when HIPS is disabled?

Nope. It remains the same. I’ve suggested (in the past) that CIS stay protected when any of the features are disabled, but this suggestion has been ignored. You are forced to use D+ if you want CIS to protect itself.

Some component of the HIPS would have to be on in order to protect itself. Being able to protect it self relies on the HIPS finding an effort to change/disable/bypass in order to turn something off.

Self protection should be tied to CIS as a whole & not tied to any one component.

Why in CIS only D+ is given so much importance? If this is the case then they should drop the FW & AV & do whatever they want with D+.
