Well, Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 FINAL is released officially.
Version is 18.104.22.16890_3458.
I have updated from the 2012 version. I did not have to uninstall... the installer program took care of it and kept my settings, it did required a re-boot.
Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 FINAL
can be had at the download crew website and here is a quote from their web page:
Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 is a capable and comprehensive security suite which comes packed with features: a strong antivirus engine, intelligent firewall, phishing protection, spam filter, powerful parental controls and a whole lot more.
"Safe Money" is one of the new features this time. It's a reworking of the Safe Run technology which aims to protect you when using online banking, shopping and payment services. Click the "Pay" button at eBay, say, and the program can automatically open the relevant page in a protected browser, isolated from the rest of the system, while a virtual keyboard keeps your passwords, account numbers and other details away from keyloggers.
Another big addition is the new Automatic Exploit Prevention engine, which aims to prevent malware from using vulnerabilities in Flash, Java, Adobe Reader and other common applications.
Other improvements include more accurate spam blocking, better detection of phishing sites, smaller update files for faster processing, and reduced demands on your system resources (typical RAM use when running in the background was no more than 40MB on our test PC).

This is not a what is, or who is, the best A/V, malware, firewall, or other thread... it is just to let the Kaspersky users know the new version is finalized and seems stable, with a few new features.
If you encounter any anomalies and find a fix... please share!
