Added installation of the new Flash Player 188.8.131.52 (Flash8b.ocx). Adobe
updated their previous Flash Player 184.108.40.206 (Flash8a.ocx) without
increasing the version number. The new version solves a problem with Flash
on Windows user accounts with limited access (previously, Hitman patched
some registry keys to solve this problem).
Added a countdown timer when updating Spybot Search & Destroy. Spybot
S&D some times hangs during update (not receiving data, halting the
Added AES-256 encryption of statistic packages for the Hitman server. Some
users tried to make a hobby out of hacking and manually uploading trash to
the statistics server. With the AES encryption, the statistics will soon
return on the website.
Added support for Spyware Doctor 3.8. Users running a previous version of
Spyware Doctor are not upgraded by Hitman (yet).
Added Universal Plug and Play Survey. With this survey we would like to
get an insight in how vulnerable users are for UPnP misusage by
spyware/trojans. Using UPnP, trojans can use an existing or add a port
forward to the router/firewall, rendering the firewall useless against
attack. Result of the UPnP scan is AES encrypted and sent anonymously. We
will add a UPnP manager in Hitman Pro 2.5 so the user will have full control
over UPnP (incl. ability to automatically delete an open UPnP port forward
when a trojan misuses it).
Added automatic installation of Windows Security Update KB912812
(addressing a vulnerability with the "createTextRange()" method
call). The Security Update replaces the eEye JScript patch.
Added our own removal of the eEye JScript patch. The uninstaller supplied
by eEye Digital Security caused a security warning on systems running Norton
AntiVirus. Our own uninstaller also verifies if the Microsoft JScript
library is properly installed (and repairs Microsoft JScript when a problem
Added use of "Segoe UI" font when it is found on system.
"Segoe UI" is the default screen font used by Windows Vista and
Updated Hitman Pro user interface so it integrates better with the current

situations, Windows Disk Cleanup could cause problems with unfinished MSI
Improved speed when generating software database and installing external
Replaced standard messages with Vista-like messages to give the entire
Hitman Pro interface a more similar look and feel.
