  1. Greetings! Listed as fixed in 7.3 "An on-demand scan launched from the ESMC console could shut down the computer even if this post-scan action was not selected" is exactly what started happening after I've upgraded Endpoint clients to 7.3. Never happened before. The process C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Security\ekrn.exe (WKST-VRN-BKP01) has initiated the power off of computer WKST-VRN-BKP01 on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: Other (Planned) Reason Code: 0x80000000 Shutdown Type: power off Comment: Computer scan completed That comes from sche

  3. Hello, this option is already available in ESET Cloud Administrator console. Currently, as agents are updated via "Components upgrade task", which does not differentiate between agents, and other components of the ESMC infrastructure (server / webconsole) this option was disabled. However, in Cloud the server is fully hosted / maintained by ESET, so "one click agent updates" are possible. Please note, that for the future releases we work on "automatic agent upgrades", meaning agents would automatically upgrade themselves to the version compatible / matching with the server.

  4. It's been a slow forum posting weekend and it appears this thread has run its course. We have all had the opportunity to "rant and rave" about Eset Home version protection features we all wished we had and in reality, probably never will have. So it is time to expose this Python POC for what it is - fake ransonware. Err ..... what, you say? The POC encrypted files. Well so does a lot of legit encryption and other apps including user created ones. So lets get into this. A few years back, the NextGen security software vendors were trying "to get traction" against the established AV vendors

  5. There are many reasons for that, not just one. One of the things we do is that the resource-intensive code emulation is done once and the result is cached for future use so advanced heuristics doesn't have to emulate files each time they are accesses and scanned. Then there are other safe caching mechanisms to ensure that files are re-scanned only when needed (e.g. after module updates), trusted / whitelisted files are scanned less frequently, etc. which also positively affects performance.

  6. You can see in the test that ESET detected 100% of the samples in that SYNTHETIC (ie. not a real-world) "test" so no better result could be achieved. We have already commented on it as follows: This test is completely wrong. First of all, you skip the very first layer of defense - Web access protection which is very strong in ESET and blocks download from malicious urls which could save users in many cases from new malware even entering the system. Secondly, by disabling real-time protection you prevent HIPS from receiving events on the file system level and thus make HIPS and all HI

  9. Hello ESET Endpoint Security / Antivirus users, It’s been quite a while since we released the 7th generation of our Endpoint solutions, so naturally you may ask when the generation 8 will be released. We have good news to share, as we are approaching the final stages of development and preparation for the release, we would like to share it with you so you can try it before it gets released officially and give us feedback on it, which is very valuable for us. I guess the first question, which comes to mind is what will be the new features of it. Let me briefly name some: Secure

It's been more than 5 years I've use ESET software on my computer and ESET is the best for me. here are some reasons I still use this Boy: Inexpensive Easy-to-use interface Good malware protection Secure browser for online payments Fast scans Lots of useful extra features Small system-performance impact File encryption, hardened browser extension, webcam protection What else do you need for your security? for me having a VPN access is the one but it's not a big problem. I very much appreciate your support ESET.

  15. You are just angry at something that you can't change , all companies do the same , they release an update and then they give the change notes after a while , or go meet Microsoft , they won't tell you what changed. or say hello to Steam I don't represent ESET , and I don't work for them , but a delay of a bit or few hours after being posted in their download page and after that to their forum , it doesn't mean anything bad , they have posted it they didn't hide them , It's just a matter of a little bit of time delaying the upgrade so you can read the notes and after than initiate your up

  18. The PUA detection is correct. It's optional. For more information what PUA are, please read https://support.eset.com/en/kb2629-what-is-a-potentially-unwanted-application-or-potentially-unwanted-content. If you think that benefits of using a particular PUA outweigh possible risks, you can exclude the PUA from detection.

  19. ESET NOD32 Antivirus for Linux desktop is a legacy product. Legacy products do not support activation but require a username and password for update.These are not usually included in the license email since current products require only a license key for activation but can be provided by customer care on request. I'm gonna send you a personal message with your U/P momentarily.

  21. ESET has been protecting users worldwide for decades already and have always provided state-of-the-art protection. While it was always our digital worlds that ESET has been protecting, now with the epidemic of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus the need to protect also users themselves became inevitable. Besides supporting various scientific and charity events, we are now creating a fund to support effective diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, giving 300,000 EUR to support the purchase of a diagnostic system capable of analyzing 4000 samples per day. By purchasing ESET's products you can be sure

    AMON is the former name of the real-time protection module. We still call it internally that way and also real-time protection driver in the latest v13 is called eamonm.sys.

  24. Update (Feb 10, 16:30 CET): 1, A fix tool that will replace ekrn.exe with a fixed version will be ready within today (Feb 10). The tool will need to be run on machines with affected ESET Security products that are malfunctioning. No restart should be needed to get the product work. The tool should work for affected Endpoint v5 as well as v6.5 products also on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. 2, If you have an affected version of the product and it still works alright, do not restart the computer yet. Tomorrow (Feb 11) we'll be releasing Antivirus and antispyware module which will patch

  27. Hi Thomas, My solution is the following: 1.: - I created a dynamic group for collect the computers with error message "Restart required" : 2.: - Then I defined a CRON triggered task for send a pop-up window message into the affected computers: "Hello Collegue, please restart your computer as soon as possible because an ESET software update...bla..bla" or something like this You can configure the CRON for example launch the message hourly, every 10 minutes or as you want It works pretty fine

  28. Hi everone, I found the solution to this topic on a German speaking thunderbird forum. For all non-german speaking people, here the translation with the action plan which solves the issue. At least for me. Not sure though if all menu names are correct, as I only have German versions. But you get the point I assume. Open ESET NOD32 Antivirus -> Setup-> Advanced setup -> Web and E-Mail -> SSL/TLS Here disable the SSL/TLS-protocol filtering -> deakctivate Open Thunderbird -> Tools -> Options -> Privacy &Security -> Certificates Check

Ref.: https://lifehacker.com/how-to-check-your-usb-devices-for-unsafe-firmware-1841773522 As a rule, I reformat new USB drives primarily to get rid of any crud utilities the manufacture's love to load on these drives. Also, to set the drive to NTFS format which is more secure than the default FAT32 format.

    ESMC Auto Upgrade

    ESMC is a complex mission-critical product and it's important for administrators that it runs reliably all the time. Upgrade should be performed after backing up the database and at the time when administrators can afford to solve possible issues should something go haywire during upgrade. Likewise administrators do not let server systems upgrade automatically and immediately after the OS maker releases updates not addressing critical vulnerabilities.

  41. I'm stating two issues here in one topic. First, ESET has two types of installers, one is an online installer and the other is offline. But both are totally misleading. The offline installer is merely a 53 mb file which only installs the product but the all the modules data is downloaded after installing. Then the online installer which should do what the name suggests but it doesn't. All it does is downloads that 53 mb installer and install and of course downloads all the modules data after installing. Why even say it an online installer while it's definitely not! Highly misleading. Lite

  42. The script uploaded to VT is the initiator script that will run the payload script that has been previously dropped here: C:\updatewins.js . As such, this JavaScript itself is not malicious; the script in the C:\ root directory is. Hence why no one on VT detects the initiator script. Full analysis of this initiator script is here: https://www.hybrid-analysis.com/sample/1b1640edb3f7213f4338c6e0017a1b9028c6b324d64f3e63c09169540e82f4a5?environmentId=120

  45. Since you are in the official ESET forum, the answer is clear Anyways, it's a good practice also to try various products to find out if a particular AV works alright on your machine. It can happen that an AV with excellent results in tests causes performance issues in your environment and vice-versa. Should you encounter an issue while trialing ESET, you can ask here for assistance.

    Update Error?

    With EDTD, any file potentially carrying malware is submitted for analysis in the cloud where the file will be run. Based on the behavior analysis and evaluation by 3 different machine learning models, the file is then evaluated either as malicious, highly suspicious, suspicious and probably clean. EDTD can be configured to block access to files downloaded by browsers or email clients until a result of EDTD analysis is received. Let's assume a spammed VBA office document with a malicious macro that is not covered by a detection. Without EDTD: A user receives the email and opens the a

The current up-to-date version for desktop edition is the v4 Endpoint edition v7 is running as BETA currently , once it goes stable I believe they will start looking at building the v7 for desktop.
