Product release information for VIPRE Advanced Security for Home and VIPRE Antivirus Plus for Home version 184.108.40.2064 Hotfix on October 15, 2020.
Older versions of the Transport Layer Security protocol (TLS 1.0 & TLS 1.1) are not as secure as they once were. As a result, VIPRE is phasing out support on both email and web application connections using anything older than TLS 1.2.
This release includes security and privacy improvements for our Web Filtering (URL Scan) and our Anti-Phishing (Email Protection feature available in VIPRE Advanced Security) features by switching support to TLS 1.2.
Windows 7 and Windows 8 do have not TLS 1.2 enabled by default so our Web Filtering (URL Scan) and Anti-Phishing (available in VIPRE Advanced Security) features will stop working until TLS 1.2 is enabled. Please see Microsoft's website for directions on how to enable TLS 1.2: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/plan-design/security/enable-tls-1-2-client. If you have any issues with this process, please reach out to Support here.
