CrowdInspect 1.5.0.0 released 14-FEB-2017

Download:
https://www.crowdstrike.com/resources/crowdinspect/

Product details:
https://www.crowdstrike.com/blog/free-community-tool-crowdinspect/


This new release resolves a long-standing issue formerly preventing access to Virus Total data base.

By default, CrowdInspect displays VT results as one overall security indicator score for every process name listed.

A new option allows to query VT for extensive details about a specific suspicious process name, at a maximum rate of 4 checks per minute.
This new option requires providing a Personal VT API key, which can be obtained free of charge.

(CrowdInspect's VT query functions tested OK under Win7; do not seem to work under XP.)

Small annoyance: the new 1.5.0.0 release introduces a fleeting adware for CrowdStrike's "Falcon Prevent" antivirus product.
Thankfully, the ad can be summarily dismissed manually, or will disappear on its own after 5 seconds.
