    Firewall rules

    Thanks!

    Firewall rules

    So, how can I move a rule UP/DOWN or insert a rule between other two?

    Firewall rules

    It seems like somebody else had a similar idea....but a little bit too late. WFC has been acquired by Malwarebytes.

    Firewall rules

    No, I have 3 PC , each of the with ESET; I wanted to make all firewall rules in interactive mode and lock the firewall after that.

    Firewall rules

    It is possible, after I created the necessary set of rules in interactive mode, to lock the ESET firewall? In other words, do not pop-up any question firewall related and block anything which doesn't have an "allow rule".? This would be useful to set family PC (wife ,kid)

    Firewall rules

    Also, the notification if an application has been modified (by update) is disabled. Funny thing, some rules "allow this and that" are still enabled. Anyway, I uninstalled Internet Security and installed NOD32 antivirus + Windows Firewall Control , by BiniSoft.( Looks less sophisticated but easy to manage.)

    Firewall rules

    Any firewall I had so far would mark somehow the invalid rules ( Windows Firewall Control, PC Tools Firewall Plus). How difficult would be for ESET to implement that. BTW, if I disable Firewall only , what else is going to be affected??? I forgot to ask : what about duplicate rules?

    Firewall rules

    What happens with invalid firewall rules (let's say I uninstalled the program for which previously I had a rule) Thanks!

    2 HIPS 2 Many?

    It is very user configurable if you know what to do.

    Very dissatisfied with Eset

    How is this relevant???? If an antivirus has a mechanism based on HIPS /behavior analysis the detection is supposed to be generic. Of course , 24 hour later ESET will have time to analyze it and give it a name, but we, the regular users , are not looking for a name, we are looking for a detection.

    HIPS default rules

    I have no doubt that , with proper rules HIPS works. What I am saying is , in default mode HIPS is an empty box , with the only purpose to make some other modules functional. In default mode HIPS doesn't add another layer of protection . I asked ESET, in the past, to provide the rules (rather than KB how to create certain rules) all disabled and give the user possibility to enable them as necessary.

    HIPS default rules

    Yet I do not understand why HIPS ,a "fundamental component" can be disabled by any regular user in ESET settings.

    HIPS default rules

    I am not posting about HIPS not performing properly, I am posting about HIPS not performing AT ALL. As I said , in almost 5 years and 3 pc I never had a HIPS related alert, so what's the point in advertising HIPS as long as the only purpose is assure ESET functionality ,not to add another layer of protection. This was supposed to be posted in "ESET and AV Comparatives" here the discussion is pure technical...

    HIPS default rules

    So , if HIPS is strictly used internally, why make visible and accessible to users??? Why offer the option to disable it???? This creates a false sense of security (ESET has HIPS but XXXX antivirus doesn't)

    HIPS default rules

    So, are you saying that HIPS is just an empty box, waiting to be filled with customized rules????? I have been using ESET for almost 5 years now on 3 pc , with HIPS set on "Smart mode", yet I never got an alert HIPS related , unless I created a custom rule. The consensus here on this forum is that HIPS is another layer of defense, and if a malware is not detected by this and that, for sure is going to be blocked by HIPS. Really disappointed to hear that in fact HIPS doesn't do too much in fighting malwares.
