    In other words, the new Edge browers will employ the same security features as the old Edge browser.

    Does this mean features like banking don't work on Edge? I remember the feature always worked with Chrome despite enabling appcontainer in it.


    Though, I wonder if the banking feature was changing the Chrome process to untrusted.

    I already know about ESET for Android, I am asking why no ESET for iPhone.

    From the link TomFace posted

    23. Why is there no ESET product available for Windows Phone and Apple iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch)?

    Windows Phone and Apple iOS are proprietary operating systems with their own application stores. The only way to install software on your device is through these stores. Publishers verify each application and guarantee it is malware free. The applications from these stores cannot be run in the background, nor can they scan and delete other programs. Additionally, each application runs in its own segment– a sandbox–so that even if there is any malware bundled in with an application, it cannot be installed and spread to other programs.

    Exclusions should be used with utter care and used only to resolve specific issues that could not be solved other way with the assistance of customer care. Each exclusion creates a security hole since excluded paths will never be scanned by ESET and possible malware won't be detected even if was otherwise detected and blocked.

    Exclusions are a function in your product. Those possibles security holes are already there.   So, why not improve the way exclusions are done like above?

    It's a really good product. I have noticed you are updating the modules in a way you didn't in the past, or possibly that's my perception. The product internet security has many features.

    However, it would be nice to have a new and additional feature that really adds to the protection. Perhaps something like an AI feature, a bit heavy on resources so it should be optional. Or maybe a shielded 'session' (phrase?) for one's browsing experience, that keeps one's browsing activity separate from the rest of the system. Often people  just want to read the content of websites without doing anything, and I'd guess any malware encountered that way could be kept contained if there is a feature for that.

    Again, maybe optional because not everyone has a system with the resources for more demanding tasks.

    Possibly add an antispam feature for Thunderbird ? Personally I'm on version 5.

    ESET already has machine learning. It's called Augur 


    They already did many articles of the subject of ML.

  5. Malwaretips offer a Malware Hub section where users spent time testing security products.

    As far as I'm aware one of the rules there is to submit missed samples to the antivirus provider you are testing.

    Of course one has to wait for someone to actually test ESET.

    Camelia, you may want to review the BPP use via this KB. While it does not get into the technical aspects of BPP, it's a good review. I do not know if BPP uses it's own sandbox, so Azure Phoenix may have a leg up on me.;)

    One thing I do know is that it works well with my PW manager LastPass v4.1.48 which is a Godsend for me.:rolleyes:


    The fact it says "secured environment" makes me think of a sandbox. @Marcos can correct me if I'm wrong.

  7. If one uses a security product, it is understandable to want to know if it works and how. Safe habits plus knowing the strength and weaknesses(limitations) of a product is good.

    Norton has also completely failed with the test

    Do you know if Norton is injecting dll into processes to monitor them?

  8. One thing I have noticed from dedicated anti-exploit products is that they inject dll into various processes most likely to monitor their behavior for possible exploitation. However if one checks with Process Explorer you hardly see any dll from ESET. At most, you can see dll in browsers like Chrome and Firefox but those are for the Banking feature.


    So, I'm going to assume to whatever technology ESET uses for its anti-exploit capabilities are different from the standard.

    Used the above mentioned test to see ESET antiexploit capabilities; ZERO reaction from ESET.

    Now I know I will get "we know that is a test, that's why!!!"

    So, is there any test on the internet which can be used to test ESET capabilities (other than EICAR)????

    I'm curious. Did you used a 32-bit application for the test? If so, could you say which one?
