    I have a local account. I do not use online anytihng for this win10 debacle. I have SHUTUP switch off almost everything. I have no one drive, I have no microsoft accounts. microspasm have, over the years, clearly demonstrated their mistrust, disgust and lack of customer service for the very people who made them the global garbage patch they now are. As for a Linux recommendation, clearly, the front runner for new folk is Ubuntu. The GUI has evolved vastly over the years, it is stable, useful and easy to get to grips with. The standard desktop version contains all the workable software you would likely need. Installing more software is a doddle and there is a world of passionate, dedicated expert-like folk who will gladly offer any free assistance. There is NO activating online. There is (almost) no snooping - firefox, etc will have crash report info sent off but these things can easily be disabled. Almost everything you could want will be available as Open Source or GPL, etc so no worries about purchasing things. Virtualisation runs far better on the Linux platform than windows via KVM/QEMU. The only caveat that I have encountered is that cut/paste between host/guest and shared folders are a bit trickier to set up than would be the case with a windows setup. However, if you don't want a more hardware-centric virtualisation then you can still employ virtualbox which operates as well as virtualbox does anywhere. Software development tools do NOT require 10Gb or more of install as one gets with visual studio. By the same token, no registration is required such as microspasm force one into so they can spy on more of your activities. If one is a non-gaming user, Linux is ideal. If one is a business user, it could also be ideal but for the fact that the bulk of businesses use BackOffice tools - especially exchange/outlook; the latter of which has been altered so it is not so user-friendly any longer. I was weaned on UNIX (SYSV) and have been a ms/windows tech-type since MSDOS 3.x and windows 3. With every subsequent release, I have disliked windows less and UNIX-like more. The day windows is history will be a glorious day for the whole world! P.S. Once you feel confident enough you can even recompile your Linux kernel to streamline it to your tastes and speed-up your boot times. Personally, I have not recompiled a kernel since using Slakware but it is fun to try and would take far less time today than the 4-7 hours it used to take using pre-pentium intel chips back in 1993.

    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 ekrn to fix the issue. 3, We should have 6.5 installers with a fixed ekrn.exe ready by tomorrow and will replace them in the repository too. 4, After remedying the issue, please consider upgrading to the latest Endpoint v7.2 wherever possible. While Endpoint v5 and 6.5 products will work until they reach EOL, we strongly encourage you to use the latest version which not only addresses bugs and issues from older versions but also brings substantially better protection against current threats.

    False positive reports To submit a possible False Positive see Submit a suspicious website / potential false positive / potential miscategorization by Parental control to ESET for analysis when you wish to submit via email or use Submit sample for analysis function from the program GUI of ESET product installed on your computer. Whitelisting ESET does provide a whitelisting service for software vendors by which you can submit your software to minimize the chances of false positives, e.g., when your software is being downloaded. This service is intended as preventive measure for trusted and undetected applications to minimize risk of future false positives. Whitelisting service is not a channel for removing existing detections, disputes or solving other unrelated problems. If you want to register your software for whitelisting, please follow the instructions in the KB article How do I whitelist my software with ESET? Requirement for False positive submissions When submitting false positive file(s) via email or via program GUI, it is necessary to send copy of falsely detected file(s) as well as description of the file. I will explain what information is needed and why it is important. 1) Name of the legitimate application the file belongs to. When submitting false positives you must be able to identify what is the name of application that is being falsely detected. No-name false positive reports (when information about the application name is missing) are harder/slower to examine and in many cases indicate correctly detected malware rather then false positive. Example of correctly provided information: “This file belongs to VLC media player 3.0.6.” When you provide the specific version number, it helps. Example how not to submit false positives: “I don’t know what it is and why I have it on my computer but I think it is a false positive.” If you don’t know what the file is, don’t report it as false positive. 2) Name of the application’s author, developer, vendor or website where you downloaded the software Each legitimate software have known author or there is known company who developed it. There is known source/origin where the software can be obtained and you can learn information about it. This information is needed in investigation process. Researchers need to verify whether the software is safe and they may need the full installer to evaluate the software properly. Researchers may need to investigate whether other versions of the same software were affected by false positive or not. It is important to know the source/website where you downloaded the software because some download websites provide different installers than original vendors. 3) Application's purpose Let the researchers know what the application is supposed to do, what value does it offer to you. This information is usually available on vendor’s website but there are many old applications where the website is no longer available, or software was distributed only on CD-ROM/DVD, or the software is custom/in-house developed and the description is not generally available. Examples how of application’s purpose: This is a picture viewer, video convertor, movie player, communication software, printing program, database program, web browser, accounting software, computer game, tool I use for programming, etc. Don’t hesitate to provide any additional information you deem important. You may add the specific detection name you saw when detection occurred. In case some specific circumstances are needed to reproduce the problem, tell it to the researchers how (For example it may happen that the file itself is not detected but it downloads/creates other files that trigger detection). You may submit false positives via email or directly from ESET product via Submit sample for analysis function. In order to use the function open GUI of ESET Internet Security, you will find following icon in Tools and clicking More Tools: Please select “False positive file” option and attach the file you want to submit. Please provide all necessary information (as described above) researchers need to process your false positive submission. Information you provide indeed significantly helps ESET laboratories in the identification and processing of samples. Thank you for your submission!

    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 that you also support science and charity. Machine translation: https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=sk&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.eset.com%2Fsk%2Fo-nas%2Fpress-centrum%2Feset-tlacove-spravy%2Fspolocnost-eset-vytvara-fond-na-podporu-ucinnej-diagnostiky-koronavirusu-sars-cov-2%2F Recognizing the seriousness of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus spread, ESET has decided to engage in the fight against the epidemic in Slovakia. The ESET Foundation has therefore set up a COVID-19 Effective Diagnosis and Prevention Fund, to which ESET will contribute EUR 300,000. The amount will be increased later if necessary. The aim of the newly established fund is to provide, in the first phase, the necessary equipment for improving the quality of diagnostics and introducing comprehensive testing in Slovakia. Since its inception, ESET has dedicated itself to the diagnosis of computer viruses and is symbolic to support the diagnosis of biological viruses in this situation. Even at such moments, the importance of science, which can make a significant contribution to solving the situation, has been shown. ESET Foundation supports science and research and is the organizer of the ESET Science Award. “We have set up a fund to support the effective diagnosis and prevention of coronavirus because we believe that only a systematic scientific approach will help us manage this epidemic. At the same time, it is essential that we think ahead today and take steps to relaunch the economy. General and systematic testing of the population will help in returning the employees to the work process and thus also help the Slovak economy, ” explains Richard Marko, CEO of ESET. Through the Fund, ESET will support the purchase of high-performance diagnostic equipment, the development of systems for more efficient online diagnostics, or contribute to the cost of operating or collecting and transporting samples. Public and private medical diagnostic institutions and laboratories operating in Slovakia that are authorized to diagnose this type or to take and transport SARS-CoV-2 related samples may receive financial support. These institutions can contact the ESET Foundation at nadacia[at]eset.sk . The expert guarantor in the evaluation of the use of the fund's resources is the recognized Slovak chemist Robert Mistrík. “After the first discussions, we are considering co-financing the purchase of the Roche cobas 8800 System, or co-financing its operation. This device is able to do real-time RT-PCR tests at lower unit cost and shorter time in automatic mode. It can evaluate up to 4,000 samples in a single day. We will look for a partner to operate this device. Of course, the fund will also be open to other solutions supporting its goal, ” concludes Robert Mistrík, the fund's expert guarantor. More information about the Fund for the Support of Effective Diagnosis and Prevention of COVID-19 can be found at www.nadaciaeset.sk .

    Thanks, it worked. @MartinK It's really counterintuitive to put it there. But, whatever, you can leave it as is, but when someone tries to update Management Agent from "Dashboard -> ESET applications -> Outdated applications" (or from any other location applicable) then ESMC should create task "Upgrade Security Management Server Components" instead of saying "No ESET products, which can be updated automatically, have been found".

    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.

    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 have built-in restrictions; e.g. NOD32 has an option for Windows and Linux. The other Eset desktop products only support Windows. And obviously, the Eset mobile version is for Smart phones.

    ESET NOD32 Google Chrome 79 crashes

    @Kirill Licenses for ESET products are not sold for a specific product version. Meaning, that with your current license you will be eligible to use the new V7 as well. Linux Endpoint product is the last one running the old version of architecture / scanning core, and it will be updated to V7 soon. We are already running a beta program (available here), V7 should not have this issue at all.
  24. 2 points
    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. The fix that Marcos talked about would be probably a small fix (hotfix) that will solve the issue with browsers and that's it , not a major upgrade.

    MDM certificate

    Hi, You should create a full chain certificate which contains SSL cert, intermediate, root and private key. - Download XCA and install it. - Download OpenSSL and install it. 1.) Create a empty file (C:\temp\cert-chain.txt) on your PC and past the following inside it: -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- (Your Primary SSL certificate from C:\temp\your_domain_name.crt) -----END CERTIFICATE----- -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- (Your Intermediate certificate from C:\temp\TheIntermediateCA.crt) -----END CERTIFICATE----- -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- (Your Root certificate part from C:\temp\TheTrustedRoot.crt) -----END CERTIFICATE----- 2.) Now replace the content inside the brackets with your certificates (which you can export via XCA; PEM txt format). The order above is VERY important so do not mix it! 2.) Export the private key (unencrypted in text format) with XCA from your certificate and store it inside C:\temp\server.pemkey 3.) Now merge everything together as pkcs12 (filename extension for PKCS #12 files is .p12 or .pfx). To do that open a CMD (run as admin) and perform: cd C:\OpenSSL-Win32 openssl pkcs12 -export -inkey C:\temp\server.pemkey -in C:\temp\cert-chain.txt -password pass:ABCD -out C:\temp\certificate(chain_and_key).pfx 4.) Your PFX file is now ready to be used.

    Description: Color code failing tasks Detail: The server used to color code the tasks that are failing. I'm running the latest ESMC, and now, that doesn't happen, and I have a hard time figuring out which tasks are failing. Is there a way to color code it again, or where can I see it? All I get is a generic email saying: "At least one client task has invalid configuration and therefore will fail."

    Then I'd recommend raising a support ticket with your customer care. It could be that the software utilizes Windows Filtering Platform and thus filters network traffic similarly to ESET which could be a problem. Further investigation by developers will be needed, hence a opening support ticket will be the best course of action.

    Blue Screen after uninstalling Nod32

    Seems to me this still could be useful. Load the HKLM registry hive and navigate to Services key per Microsoft linked article. Open it up and determine if the following Eset services entries exist; eamonm ehdrv ekbddflt ekrn ekrnEpfw epfw epfwwfp epfwlwf ? Then do a; cd C:\Windows\System32\drivers. Then enter, dir. Next for all the above Eset services present in the Services key, verify that a corresponding .sys file exists in C:\Windows\System32\drivers. At least this will show what Eset driver is missing from C:\Windows\System32\drivers if that is indeed the issue.

    Since you haven't been able to successfully boot that device, did you try the "Last known good configuration" option? Ref.: https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/666-advanced-boot-options.html If that doesn't work, did you try the "System Restore" option from the Win 7 Repair screen?

    Dear Linux community, We’ve been working on the new generation of our solution for Linux desktops for quite a while. The hard work of our development & QA teams, using technologies developed for the ESET File Security for Linux 7, were materialized into the first BETA version of our Endpoint product, which we would like to share with you. To mention just few of the top new features: Completely new distributed architecture, natively 64-bit, with better performance, security and stability New technology for On-access scanning by means of ESET-in-house-developed lightweight kernel module Optimized for multi-core performance Compatible with latest ESET Security Management Center 7.1 If you are interested in getting a chance of a hands-on experience with it and see the full list of improvements, just leave a comment here or send me ( @Peter Randziak) and @TomasP a private message. We are looking forward to your participation.

    To begin, anyone who hasn't updated their Realtek audio driver in the last few months is most likely vulnerable. All audio drivers prior to version 8857 are vulnerable. I am posting this because: 1. This is a kernel mode device driver vulnerability. 2. The outfit, SafeBreach Labs, who developed the POC: https://safebreach.com/Post/Realtek-HD-Audio-Driver-Package-DLL-Preloading-and-Potential-Abuses-CVE-2019-19705 , has a penchant for later using their POC's to show how AV protections can be bypassed using these vulnerabilities. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/realtek-fixes-dll-hijacking-flaw-in-hd-audio-driver-for-windows/

    [I use the latest ESET Internet Security version] A while back I started to notice my single thread speeds were going slow when I did speed tests, also downloads were going slow. It seemed quite random, a lot of the time it would be fine for the first few minutes of starting up my PC and then would slow down from my maximum 60mbits to approx 20mbits. I could always get full speed back for a minute or two by disabling the network adaptor and then re-enabling it. I couldn't work out what was causing it, I blamed it on my motherboard or NICs or router. Then my motherboard broke and I assumed it was just a symptom of that, even though I had tried two USB3 to NIC adapters and a new NIC card and different chipsets (Intel, Atheros, and Realtek), and the slowness happened with them all too (but as they all plugged in to the motherboard in one fashion or another I just assumed it was the board). So anyway, I got my new Ryzen PC yesterday, I noticed after re-installing everything the same happened again, so it HAD to be software as it was a brand new PC, so sadly I wasted a lot of money on NIC cards/adapters. So this time I reset Windows again to start fresh, and I made a note of every item I installed and when the problem begins, so I would install new software, speed test, and wait half an hour and speed test again. Everything was fine, until approx 1 hour after installing ESET, then the problem happened again. I uninstalled ESET just now and the full speed is back. Now, I can't be 100% it is ESET, because it did used to be random, but I have done speed tests 20x since uninstalling ESET and it has been fine again which is very unusual. Normally even though it was random, once it had begun going slow only enabling and disabling the adapter would help, or resetting the PC, in the very short term (a minute or two). If curious I use Interactive mode so I allow most things through, occasionally I deny but very rare only if I am unsure of the software I have downloaded. I probably should have fiddled with other settings before uninstalling, but I was eager to see if it was ESET or not as there had to be a common link with my previous computer, which was software of some kind. Now comes the odder bit. My other older PC (not the broken one, I always run 2 working PCs at home) also uses ESET, and that is fine and always runs at full 60mbit on single thread, so I have no idea why this is happening to this PC, unless there is some software I use on this PC that I don't have on my other one that somehow conflicts with ESET. The only similar left overs from my previous PC that broke that also suffered this speed issue is my PSU, case, Radeon graphics card, my RAID card, 6 external HDDs, 4 internal HDDs. The main OS drive is totally different. While I had the speed issues I removed my RAID card, my USB3 card, and all HDDs except the M2 and still had the issue, so I deduced it can't be any of those hardware items causing this. So, assuming this is ESET, I have to then think what is not on my other PC, which runs fine with ESET. So we have the AMD graphics card (a RX560), my other PC uses Nvidia. A different chipset, both my broken PC and new one is a Gigabyte model, although totally different model of course as my last CPU was an intel i7 and my new one is a Ryzen 2600x. The PSU. Software wise, I guess the chipset drivers would be different, the graphics drivers would be different, the motherboard software would be different. I keep both PCs very similar in the other software installed, as they are desktop PCs so I keep them fairly similar so I can use the same software in different rooms on big monitors. So any ideas ? Sorry for no log, as I uninstalled, but I am just curious if you have heard of this single speed issue happening before. Speed tests are fine for multi-thread tests, it is the tbbx1 speeds that are slow, but that seems to effect downloads too. I also don't get why disabling and re-enabling my network adaptor seems to fix the speed for a minute or two. So if you have heard of this issue before, please let me know, if not then I guess I will just keep using ESET on my other PC and just keep to Windows Defender on this one. Thanks. Knowing my luck, I will post this, and then find speeds are slowed again and it won't be ESET, but it seems too much of a coincidence that it went slow shortly after installing and better again after uninstalling.

    Unfortunately I am al so not sure how it was meant. We are officially declaring maximal number of managed clients to 10000 when using MySQL database, but it is not related to number of actually connecting clients, but rather limit is amount of data. ESMC installed over MySQL might have performance issues with processing larger amount of data and rendering larger datasets. As an result rendering of specific reports (threats for example) might be much slower, but in "clean" network even much larger environments can be managed with MySQL-based ESMC installation. Persistent connections as introduced in ESMC should actually significantly reduce load of ESMC server, especially in "dormant" state when no changes are made in management console. If properly configured on recommended HW, ESMC should handle hundreds of clients per second.
