  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

  8. 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.

  14. 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

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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.

  23. 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

  25. Hi, We're currently reviewing our server protection, we have around 150 on a mix of ESET File Security 7.0 and 7.1 (Windows only) which according to the EOL page is in support (Limited for 7.0, Full for 7.1). With ESET Endpoint AV V8 being released for clients is there any rough estimated date/quarter/year on when the next major version for File Security will be released? I've noticed 7.3 released for ESET File Security last month (EOL page not updated to show that?) but we're reviewing whether we should upgrade all our 7.0/7.1 servers to 7.3 or wait for V8. It be months of wor

  26. Yes, in case of multiple commands, one have to enter delimited one-liner, as it would be done in one-line BAT file. Just a note, this will be improved in upcoming released, where multi-line commands will be possible, which should simplify such scenarios.

  34. Hello @Zen11t, thank you very much for your explanation again. It helps us to understand your needs better. I hope this trick will help you You can filter the computers with an outdated version of agents and then click on any item in the table and select "In computer page (all)". It will navigate you to the computers section, where you will have only computers with outdated agents, and here you can also check the last connection status.

  37. I am 100% there with you, I am now disappointed that you make the effort to test the software, report the errors found to the German support and all reported errors in the final, or so-called final, in my eyes nothing more than a very bad beta version is to find again + to find the errors of the previous build again, if this continues with Eset, I will also consider whether I should pay for it and that although I am an absolute Eset I'm a fan and have been using it since NOD v2, I am really very disappointed!

  38. 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

  40. 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.

  44. Both products are more-less same in terms of protection features. On the othet hand taking part in tests is quite costly so AV makers have to make decisions about spending the money effectively which is one of the reasons for that.

    Suggestions for ESET

    Application Control is planned. A research was already made, currently there are no plans to back up files. We focus on protection since letting malware run has always negative consequences and 100% remedy is often not possible. Not to say that backing up any files in the event of modification has adverse effect on performance and that could render the machine unusable if big files are modified. ESET software is install-and-forget. End users use automatic mode in which they are not prompted for actions (firewall, HIPS, malware cleaning, etc.). Patch management is not cu

  46. Microsoft are intent on relegating the desktop PC into a -poor child of their crappy surface tablet. There is little or no point in promoting all this geoloating twaddle on a PC which is, for the most part, quite static in its movements. Laptops are not that mobile really, except for business types. Windows 10 is dire, intrusive, bland. If Linux could offer me better gaming options I'd blow windows out the door and not waste a minute more on it.

  47. Where the confusion kicks in on Eset licensing options is they offer a multi-device license option: https://www.eset.com/us/home/multi-device-security/ . This license allows you to install Eset on any device where a supported product version exists. To add to the confusion depending on where you reside, Eset marketing in that country might offer a multiple pack option; usually up to 5 devices. So the result is a multi-device and multi-license subscription which allows any Eset product to be installed on up to 5 supported devices. The key to keeping all this straight is that Eset products
