KIS 20.0.0.829 on MAC causing network block [merged, cross-posting]


Userlevel 1

Hey people.

 

It’s been a while since I have this weird and irritating issue. Every few hours, I have to force quit KIS from Activity Monitor so it gets restarted and let’s browsers, Skype, Telegram Desktop … to work again or else network reachability is blocked for those.

 

When I got my MacBook Pro 2017, it came with OS High Sierra and I never had issues with it. an OS crash happened after an update of MAC OS Sierra and I had to upgrade to Mojave to be able to use the device again and after sometime issue started.

 

My brother have the  same machine and OS and he also has the same issue as me.

 

1-I am using KIS 20.0.0.829 fully updated on a long license plan

2-I am on MACBook Pro 2017 with OS Mojave updated to the latest

2-I did try uninstalling and reinstalling a freshly downloaded package from KIS download page

 

I have to say sometimes I feel KIS make the system run a bit slow.

Hello @Sajjad

You’re most welcome:relaxed: !

If you do need to escalate to Technical Support, before doing so, double check KIS System requirements & KIS Software compatibility check, and also discuss with them “ sometimes KIS seems to make the system run a bit slow.

Hi again,

 

Unfortunately gathering traced logs and sending it to the support lab was not helpful. They just close the incident.

 

Every night  when I close my laptop and it logs off, next morning when  I open it, many apps can not have network access, I have to exit or force quit KIS to make them working, afterwards if I start KIS, all still goes fine.

 

I explained this and LAB just considers this resolution.

 

I’d rather get the support here from you guys and if not, I am more than happy to dump KIS and try another internet security.

@Sajjad hello,

If you want we can reopen the request.

 

As I understand the INC was closed due to your reply regarding the issue was resolved.

Userlevel 1

Open it so what happens exactly? I sent them logs and I provided all info.

It  should have been enough to sort this.

 

I’m not blaming Kaspersky though. It’s a sxxx show Apple company runs on many devices regarding many apps. I have Kaspersky on my gaming PC and it never ever slows down my gaming experience.

 

If you want here is the reference number of my ticket ID INC000011622849

 

Mod Note: edited foul language.

Sorry for getting back to you late.

 

After @Anton Mefodys reopened my case, an agent sent my details to Kaspersky HQ labs, then they asked for some details including my trace files which I provided.

 

6 days ago the agent came back to me saying the HQ labs been able to  trace and detect the cause of the issue and developers are working to make a patch which might take 2 to 3 weeks. It will be applied to one of the upcoming auto updates.

 

I am just not sure when would I know that my KIS20 has received the patch, to see the effect.

Hello @Sajjad,

Thank you for the update:ok_hand_tone3:

  • Most of the time the Lab does not have an exact date, that’s why they say things like: “patch/fix might take 2 to 3 weeks” & “it will be applied in an upcoming auto updates”.
  • 2 to 3 weeks from 20th of June is anytime between 4th to 11th of July 2020, patches are distributed silently, to apply patches, systems must be fully shutdown and restarted; in the 4 → 11th time frame you could reboot every 24 hours, otherwise, go back to the agent, tell them you’d appreciate them letting you know when the patch is ready so you can verify it works:thinking:
  • Check your KIS 20.0.0.829 version & patch(x) x=letter information; ask the agent if the patch/fix is for general distribution or specific to your case? 
  • & maybe @Anton Mefodys will update your topic.

Please let us know the outcome? 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

I've had a host of intermittent network-related issues  similar to what's reported here, and I'm watching this issue closely because today suddenly I couldn't access certain sites without getting a network privacy error (expired security certificate). After spending hours w/ my service provider and Apple, and reloading OSX, it became immediately clear that turning off KIS solved it, which is great, but also sucks because I like KIS. 

Firefox, Google Chrome and others application not connecting to the internet i am using KIS 20.0.0829 on my MAC.

If I quiet the KIS all apps work fine.

How to connect them again?

 

thank you

So here is an update:

 

48  hrs ago I was asked to restart my laptop so KIS databases get updated. After doing so, the KIS version changed from 20.0.0829b to 20.0.0829b.c

 

Since that change, I am keeping the performance of my laptop under close monitoring and within a 7 days I can tell you whether something has changed to a positive level or not.

Same issue here. MacBook Pro 16”. Also Catalina (latest version)

I uninstalled Kaspersky because I didn’t know how to fix the issue without rebooting the computer every time.

 

Very interested to see if the problem is fixed in the latest version. So I can reinstall the software again.

This is the same issue as described in this topic.

https://community.kaspersky.com/kaspersky-internet-security-13/kis-20-0-0-829-on-mac-causing-network-block-8555

 

I’m also experiencing the same issue. It seems that the latest patch perhaps solves this issue.
