  1. ESET has recently started giving these alerts... 1/19/2015 10:06:58 PM ssl://v1.auc.avira.com Blocked by PUA blacklist C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON
  2. Can I delete that dat file? Will a new one be created? I unticked "log all blocked operations".
  3. I was defragging my hdd, and noticed that the HIPS log was huge! I can't even view it because the hourglass won't go away. How do I fix this?
  4. I saw this post at wilders and would like to know the opinions of the ESET staff?
  5. I'm curious, will the HIPS be any different in the next version?
  6. Great! ESET is the best running software I have on my pc...I can't remember ever having any issues atleast on my pc.
  7. The update went smooth, are the existing settings affected whenever it's updated?
  8. I would love to get an alert whenever policy mode blocks anything, i'd use it more, cause no matter how many rules I have it always seems to still block something and interactive mode is way to chatty.
  9. I'm not seeing that, is it in the main settings or rule editor? Ok I found it but that's for rules that have been created, what happens if something is blocked that isn't in the rules editor?
  10. Is there a possibility to create some sort of alert for the HIPS when policy based mode blocks something? It's very annoying to have to go check the log to see if anything has been blocked.
  11. I'm not sure if this has been mentioned but whenever I do a right click scan I would like to see options in that small scan window to remove, delete, exclude etc it's kind of annoying not having those options atleast to me.
  12. Runtime packers are pretty much viruses that are compressed into zip packages or rars, or 7z, or whatever, and release when activated. There was big talks about this at Blackhat. Blogs on eset as well : hxxp://www.welivesecurity.com/2008/10/27/an-introduction-to-packers/ Why its not for default could have to do with system resources, ensuring weaker computer systems dont get bogged down and freeze up. Smart optimization kind of falls in a similar category, it basically speeds up the scans, which will help detect different sources of malware, but also might cause others to be skipped over, so they chose off by default. Long thorough scans are a more proven method in finding files, which scans every file on the drives & system, not just the high priority targets. Timestamp is an option to keep the original access time of scanned files instead of updating it , and is more or less for backups, and files that have been altered or zipped, or what have you .... Off by default because not everyone uses backup or similar and the files dont really change in size or format etc. Thanks for explaining all that, but how about the new features in the HIPS?
