    intika received kudos from Peter Randziak in ESET NOD32 Antivirus for Linux Desktop version bug, active detection don't work for all process   
    Thanks for your answer, indeed I am running a company and indeed I have multiple licenses BUT i don't use the business version because it does not suit my needs, I don't need a central location to manage the different installations but I need that on each machine the main reason being technically advanced users that need to handle the AV themselves (and we are just 3 with 6 machines). 
    I tested the business version as it looked very interesting on paper... BUT it has its glitch as well... 
    - First the GUI is just used for notifications, there is no GUI nor possibility to use without ESMC
    - "/var/run" which is a system file/directory is included in your rpm for no reason, that can lead to serious issue
    - The kernel module had troubles to find the Linux sources...
    - The application is hardly linked to openssl v1.0.2 wich is a complete non sens (can not work with greater/lower versions of openssl)  
    I don't have the time for the moment to reinstall and troubleshoot the new version, and i can not send back global logs, the bug is clearly introduced by the new change to your library libesets_pac.so 
    I'll post back some logs if I have the time to test that on a vm

    First thank you for this nice product  
    Happy and sad: 
    It's really tiring to always have one of version out of two working on Linux, other than the bad/weird fact that we have to check manually for app updates; Every time there is an update I get exited and get happy because the product is rarely updated (it does the job tho, this is what's most important) but on the other hand application updates (not the data base) are a true disaster for a professional commercial product; I always ask my self if the new version would works and do extensive tests each time I update, that should not be the case, we are not beta testers but your paying customers. I know Linux can be complicated (and/or required very technically capable developers) but it's not more complicated than windows on the contrary it's simpler and fully open source... speaking of which I really think you should opensource Nod32 for Linux the product would become way much better. you can still keep the license side of it closed source (even if it's no secret it just use a simple authentication user/pass over web to get the updates...), you really just need to opensource it with an adequate protective license.... anyway I just wanted to share this mixed paradoxal feeling about Nod32 for Linux, it's amazingly great but sadly it is also a mess. the application look like it is just maintained to survive with the very very minimal functionality... even on the financial aspect you have to manually give each new user its license (user/pass) manually, this does not feel like a product from a big company like yours.   
    The v4.0.95.0 bug:
    After upgrading from v4.0.93.0 to v4.0.95.0 and rebooting of course, start testing with the eicar test file... Nod32 does not detect the virus on a lot of application, chrome browser (was the case before), micro editor, cat from terminal... etc. but it did detect and block the test virus with ark and kwrite... Using a RHEL based system with kernel v4.14.  
    Downgrade to v4.0.93.0 where everything works just fine, even with latest Firefox and Chrome...
