GUI freezes on sandbox popup while "Firewall Events" open. [NBZ]

The bug/issue

  1. What you did: I have opened “Firewall Events” window from CIS GUI (not Log Viewer). Then I launched exec which caused sandboxing popup.
  2. What actually happened or you actually saw: CIS GUI freezes (gone white) like it entered in infinite loop. No other OS functions were harmed.
  3. What you expected to happen or see: no freeze
  4. How you tried to fix it & what happened: Fixed only by pressing reset button - process is protected from terminating in process explorer as well causes Windows shutdown procedure to hung.
  5. If its an application compatibility problem have you tried the application fixes here?:
  6. Details & exact version of any application (execpt CIS) involved with download link:
  7. Whether you can make the problem happen again, and if so exact steps to make it happen:
    [b]- open CIS GUI
  • open “Firewall Events” (this might also be true for “Active Connections”, “Antivirus Events”, “Defense+ Events”, however not tested)
  • run a program which is unrecognized (sandbox popup)[/b]
  1. Any other information (eg your guess regarding the cause, with reasons): I did not replicated this bug as I don’t like closing Windows with reset.
