  1. Same here. I already have a valid license, but when I log in to my.eset.com, and click on "ESET License Manager" , I get the message: A verification of license ownership is now required A verification link will be sent to email address you used for license registration [correct email address shown] When I click on "Send verification link" the message changes to "A verification link resent", the screen dulls, and I get a sort of horizontal progress bar throbber that just keeps going forever, but no email is ever actually received (and yes I checked my spam folder, and triple check
  2. In addition to Gentoo, this problem mainly seems to affect Ubuntu systems. In any case, the solution is simple.
  3. Mixing two or more conflicting security models on one system is a recipe for disaster. You either need AppArmor or NOD32, not both. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AppArmor#Disable_AppArmor_framework Also see this post, which explains why you need to change NOD32's default configuration, as it's too pervasive. My advice is that if you're running a purely Linux environment, then you should use one of the native Linux security models, not an antivirus product. The main point of running AV on Linux is as a gateway to insecure systems like Windows, or as a means of recovering them, n
  4. I just got bitten by this, and some research suggests that I'm not alone, so for everyone else's benefit... The default configuration for NOD32 is to add the on-access scanner library, libesets_pac.so, to /etc/ld.so.preload. This is extremely bad practice, and actually contradicts ESET's own advice, since it replaces libc fopen() et al calls on the entire system, potentially causing havoc. That is not how the scanner is meant to be used. In my case, GNU make mysteriously stopped working. Its processes became defunct. I couldn't understand why, until I changed the parallel jobs
  5. Despite NOD32's default configuration, which is very wrong and actually contradicts ESET's own stated policy, LD_PRELOAD should not be set globally, and certainly not for build processes. The libesets_pac.so on-access scanner should only be used discreetly with anything that introduces objects into the system from outside, such as a mail server or web browser. It doesn't really make any sense for trusted components that operate entirely within the confines of the system, unless the means by which those components arrived on that system cannot be accounted for, and they have subsequently ne
  6. ESET advises against setting LD_PRELOAD globally: The NOD32 installer for Linux needs to be changed to to reflect that policy, as it currently breaks ESET's own advice, and consequently causes a lot of problems that users find difficult to track down.
  7. However, Gentoo users should note that NOD32's installer, along with nearly all third-party Linux application installers, has no knowledge or understanding of OpenRC, and as such it will fail to add the service to the default runlevel, although it will properly install the service in /etc/init.d. This is easily rectified with: rc-update add esets default
  8. For the benefit of any ESET staff who might read this forum... I just wanted to say thank you for providing what is probably the only decent AV solution for Linux desktops, both in terms of detection rates and the very slick UI/UX. The next nearest competitor is Sophos, which recently and quietly dropped support for the GUI, and which has lower detection rates for both Windows and Linux malware. https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/122722 I'm also happy to report that, to my pleasant surprise, NOD32 installs and runs flawlessly on Gentoo, a somewhat exotic meta-distro that is
  9. Presumably you can add an exception rule, as per the Windows version. hxxp://support.eset.com/kb2769
  10. Yes, ransomware protection means protection against ransomware. Anti-ransomware protection would mean protection from anti-ransomware, i.e. something that stops you from protecting yourself against ransomware, which doesn't really make any sense.
  11. Yes, it happens when you click on the "Partner Login" link immediately under the "Suchen" (Search) box, which takes you to https://portal.eset.de, a domain registered by IKS Service GmbH, which I presume is ESET's official Partner Programme operator in Germany. This is legitimate, but the certificate has expired. IKS should be notified immediately.
