Minor bugs - 5.0

The new CIS 5.0 looks very nice and running smoothly.

I have noticed two things in new CIS 5.0, which could be a small bug.

  1. The ‘partially limited’ program, (in my case Sandboxie), when treated as ‘trusted files’ still remains in the ‘currently sandboxed’ window, until I reboot, though it is moved from ‘unrecognised files’ to ‘trusted files’ in CIS. This could just be the way CIS is programmed and when the program is launched again it may go. However, it would have been better if it also goes off from ‘sandboxed’ programs as once ‘trusted’ it should get the required permissions without second time launching.

  2. When the Firewall is STEALTHED, unlike previous versions of CIS i.e. 3 and 4, the firewall intrusions are not logged, unless we manually tick the ‘log as a firewall event if this rule is fired’ in the block rule of ‘Global Rules’ so created under Network Security Policy. This will give a normal user an intuition that the firewall is not working properly and may flood the forums with new topics.
