Classic Home Edition update to 9.6.5

Hello everyone,

We are in the process of releasing 9.6.5 to the classic Home Edition user base. This update in a maintenance patch including some improvements for compatibility with macOS High Sierra (10.13). All existing installations should get this update within the next hour or two.

Other changes in this version since 9.6.1:

  1. a new threat detection engine (3.69.2)
  2. performance improvements for the Web Protection feature
  3. performance and compatibility improvements for the on-access scanner

This is a good time to remind everyone that although we'll continue to offer maintenance updates for this product periodically this "classic" Home Edition version of Sophos Anti-Virus, but you should not expect this will last forever. We really encourage everyone to look at upgrading to the new Sophos Home product, as that version will get all the new consumer-oriented features going forward.
