Today we released version 1.19.0 of the ISPProtect malware scanner.

For this release we focussed on new malware signatures and a further improvement of scanning speed in level 2.
We managed to lower the scan time to less than 50% of version 1.18.x (on our test servers) by optimizing our heuristic checks. In addition we improved the --incremental feature.

By default the --incremental argument ignores files found to have malware inside and re-scans them during next run even if they were unchanged. You can now add --incremental=all instead to ignore those files on incremental scans, too. This is especially useful when you are using a daily cron and only want to get new malware hits.
