    Rami received kudos from katycomputersystems in EICAR for web protection   
    You could try to send the EICAR file by email and see if it gets blocked , probably you will be prevented from uploading it as attachment
    But you could search for EICAR file and copy the content of it , and paste in a notepad when you try to save the TXT file , ESET should prevent you from doing so.
    For more information about Eicar you could check here : https://www.eicar.org/

    Rami received kudos from NVMe in Very poor test result   
    Against 0-day threats , mostly all of the AVs will rely on their Cloud to see if there are another infection or threat that looks like the 0-day , but it might bypass the AV depending on the situation if I am not mistaken , AVs do act differently because each one has a different engine and way of detection and default policies that are set for the test/user , for example Microsoft Defender tests have a strict policy that will flag too many false positives , in the same time if you kill the internet so you won't have any cloud , Windows Defender will fail to detect a lot of threats because it lacks the cloud's data
    Even if you switch to another AV brand , you won't get the 100% protection because there isn't a 100% protection , the same thing goes for physical protections or for example a house door that looks like 100% safe , don't worry someone will know how to open it or brute force it , or kick it and get inside or anything in life , there is no 100%
    But indeed you still need to rely on the software that you are using that it won't fail you , but still most of the infections that people get are caused by themselves not the AV , whether they surfed a malicious website , or opened a file or gave an admin permissions to untrusted file so it starts
    But I do rely on ESET technology , It's light and the detection rate is high and I just got used to it , I don't feel like switching even though there are another 100% scores in the AV tests but I do prefer to stay with ESET , because I have been using it since the age of V2 , no I don't work for them.

    By removing one protection layer you mean that the file could be stopped at the download moment by web protection? or excecution moment?
    Or do you mean he did disable one of the protection features in ESET inorder for the test to start?

    I'm sorry, I don't understand. Each vendor uses its own mechanisms to detect and get suspicious files. There are many ways how vendors get samples but the quickest way to learn about new malware is via feedback systems which is ESET LiveGrid in our products. What matters is how quickly a particular vendor can identify new malware and respond to it by adding recognition.
    The problem with script malware is that scripts can be modified easily even by people with little knowledge (e.g. by kids or students) until they become undetected by the vendor that they focus on. No matter what vendor it is, detection of scripts can be relatively easily circumvented. The only 100% protection against script malware is blocking the script interpreter from interpreting scripts, e.g. which are placed outside of a folder in which execution of (legitimate) scripts is allowed. And that is also why we recommend applying HIPS anti-ransomware policies to improve protection even more.

    Still if you are a user that uses Python you could get infected if you are not paying attention , this is where ESET should act but it didn't
    Here are the results from the same test : https://www.thepcsecuritychannel.com/test-results

    Actually, I've contacted the site's owner again and he double-checked and found and fixed the issue. But thank you all for the attention.

    Rami received kudos from brezanac in Smart Security Premium & Webcam Access Notifications   
    I believe there is something in Google Chrome that is making conflicts with ESET , so ESET and Chrome is constantly conflicting.
    I am sorry I have no solution to this problem other than switching to Firefox till ESET/Chrome fixes this.

    Rami received kudos from Moriseif in I can't see "Refer your friend" button!   
    I have reinstalled Windows due to the bug of the CMD that I've posted about earlier (It's not related to ESET) , but I can confirm that Refer to your friend is not available for me also , I did download ESET from International Website , activated it again with my license , and Refer button is missing.

    Rami gave kudos to Tornado in INFECTED Computer Cleaned THANK YOU ESET!   
    Reinstalling Windows 7 would be a real pain compared to Windows 10 for example but the system file checker may help you. Take a look at this or this on Microsoft Answers.

    It's not that big deal in my opinion @nonamelab, It's a way to bring more people to use ESET and in the same time giving the person who invited the other person who doesn't use ESET , a month of usage or more I don't remember exactly.

    Rami gave kudos to TomasP in New ESET Security Forum theme   
    Hello forum users,
    ESET Security Forum is here for you for more than 5 years now and we are happy to see it grow.
    Back in 2013, we chose a look that was in line with our products, websites and overall brand at that time. However, in the recent years, ESET defined its brand design in more details and chose a unique color to represent and distinguish itself; a color that is present in most of our online and offline presentation materials nowadays, on our websites, etc. – the turquoise color.
    During the past year, we have designed a fresh new theme for the ESET Security Forum that fits perfectly with this new brand design. After implementing it and polishing the last few details that came as feedback from our ESET Forum staff (who have been using it for some time now), we are ready to unveil it for the world to see.
    When you are reading this post, the theme is already live, so you have a first-hand experience with it. We hope you like it – and in case you spot an issue, do let me know directly (via a private message).
    On behalf of the ESET Security Forum staff,
    Tomas

    You can appeal for adding support for Apparmor through your customer care. If there's a demand from users for it, I'm sure that it will be considered provided that there are no technical obstacles.
