    There was no need to update it. Rootkits are not very common nowadays like it was years ago. Plus detection is provided by protection features and update of the Rootkit detection and cleaning module is not needed to cover new rootkits.

    Why is the Rootkit removal and cleanup module only updated until August 25, 2017?

    Hello @Christoforos
     The team responsible was able to determine the root cause of the issue.
    Fix will be prepared, tested on test environment and deployed to production.
    Consoles has been restarted to resolve the issue until permanently fixed, so you should be able to access your ECA right now.
    We apologize for the inconvenience caused,

    AMON is the former name of the real-time protection module. We still call it internally that way and also real-time protection driver in the latest v13 is called eamonm.sys.

    Oh this is very old! , I never had my hands on it , it would be awesome to have our hands on the installers again to make some fun with XP virtual machines , but I guess that is not possible
    But I miss those days , golden time.
    When you had to remove Norton because it's eating most of the 512MB of RAM and switching to ESET for it being light on the PC
    v2 Control Panel I found it :

    This is very nice of ESET
    Also for people who are interested to give their computer power to help solve the problem you can do this using Folding@Home , https://foldingathome.org/2020/03/15/coronavirus-what-were-doing-and-how-you-can-help-in-simple-terms/
    But that will use most of the CPU and GPU if it's running on your computer , it will help scientists find a formula against the Corona.
    I hope it will be good and peaceful all over the world.

    ESET has been protecting users worldwide for decades already and have always provided state-of-the-art protection. While it was always our digital worlds that ESET has been protecting, now with the epidemic of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus the need to protect also users themselves became inevitable. Besides supporting various scientific and charity events, we are now creating a fund to support effective diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, giving 300,000 EUR to support the purchase of a diagnostic system capable of analyzing 4000 samples per day.
    By purchasing ESET's products you can be sure that you also support science and charity.
    Machine translation:
    Recognizing the seriousness of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus spread, ESET has decided to engage in the fight against the epidemic in Slovakia. The ESET Foundation has therefore set up a COVID-19 Effective Diagnosis and Prevention Fund, to which ESET will contribute EUR 300,000. The amount will be increased later if necessary. The aim of the newly established fund is to provide, in the first phase, the necessary equipment for improving the quality of diagnostics and introducing comprehensive testing in Slovakia.
    Since its inception, ESET has dedicated itself to the diagnosis of computer viruses and is symbolic to support the diagnosis of biological viruses in this situation. Even at such moments, the importance of science, which can make a significant contribution to solving the situation, has been shown. ESET Foundation supports science and research and is the organizer of the ESET Science Award.
    “We have set up a fund to support the effective diagnosis and prevention of coronavirus because we believe that only a systematic scientific approach will help us manage this epidemic. At the same time, it is essential that we think ahead today and take steps to relaunch the economy. General and systematic testing of the population will help in returning the employees to the work process and thus also help the Slovak economy, ” explains Richard Marko, CEO of ESET.
    Through the Fund, ESET will support the purchase of high-performance diagnostic equipment, the development of systems for more efficient online diagnostics, or contribute to the cost of operating or collecting and transporting samples. Public and private medical diagnostic institutions and laboratories operating in Slovakia that are authorized to diagnose this type or to take and transport SARS-CoV-2 related samples may receive financial support. These institutions can contact the ESET Foundation at nadacia[at]eset.sk . The expert guarantor in the evaluation of the use of the fund's resources is the recognized Slovak chemist Robert Mistrík.
    “After the first discussions, we are considering co-financing the purchase of the Roche cobas 8800 System, or co-financing its operation. This device is able to do real-time RT-PCR tests at lower unit cost and shorter time in automatic mode. It can evaluate up to 4,000 samples in a single day. We will look for a partner to operate this device. Of course, the fund will also be open to other solutions supporting its goal, ” concludes Robert Mistrík, the fund's expert guarantor.
    More information about the Fund for the Support of Effective Diagnosis and Prevention of COVID-19 can be found at www.nadaciaeset.sk .

    For normal use (without heavy gaming) or business use Linux is excellent , I agree.

    Ubuntu is good for starting and also for advanced , but for GUIs take a look at :
    Ubuntu KDE
    Ubuntu MATE
    Ubuntu GNOME
    LinuxMINT Cinammon looks a bit like W7 if you are interested
    For me I use MATE , It's great.
    You can also download the LTS edition , which will make your upgrades every few years(major operating system upgrade) , and also LTS is considered to be more stable , but the newer versions have newer features but I would go with LTS for sure
    Put it on a USB and run it as a live image , and test the linux as much as you want , when you will restart you will go back to your Windows normally , so that way you can give Linux a try , or fire it up in a virtual machine

    I have a local account. I do not use online anytihng for this win10 debacle.  I have SHUTUP switch off almost everything. I have no one drive, I have no microsoft accounts.
    microspasm have, over the years, clearly demonstrated their mistrust, disgust and lack of customer service for the very people who made them the global garbage patch they now are.
    As for a Linux recommendation, clearly, the front runner for new folk is Ubuntu.  The GUI has evolved vastly over the years, it is stable, useful and easy to get to grips with.  The standard desktop version contains all the workable software you would likely need. Installing more software is a doddle and there is a world of passionate, dedicated expert-like folk who will gladly offer any free assistance.
    There is NO activating online. There is (almost) no snooping - firefox, etc will have crash report info sent off but these things can easily be disabled. Almost everything you could want will be available as Open Source or GPL, etc so no worries about purchasing things.
    Virtualisation runs far better on the Linux platform than windows via KVM/QEMU. The only caveat that I have encountered is that cut/paste between host/guest and shared folders are a bit trickier to set up than would be the case with a windows setup. However, if you don't want a more hardware-centric virtualisation then you can still employ virtualbox which operates as well as virtualbox does anywhere.
    Software development tools do NOT require 10Gb or more of install as one gets with visual studio. By the same token, no registration is required such as microspasm force one into so they can spy on more of your activities.
    If one is a non-gaming user, Linux is ideal. If one is a business user, it could also be ideal but for the fact that the bulk of businesses use BackOffice tools - especially exchange/outlook; the latter of which has been altered so it is not so user-friendly any longer.
    I was weaned on UNIX (SYSV) and have been a ms/windows tech-type since MSDOS 3.x and windows 3. With every subsequent release, I have disliked windows less and UNIX-like more.
    The day windows is history will be a glorious day for the whole world!
    P.S. Once you feel confident enough you can even recompile your Linux kernel to streamline it to your tastes and speed-up your boot times.  Personally, I have not recompiled a kernel since using Slakware but it is fun to try and would take far less time today than the 4-7 hours it used to take using pre-pentium intel chips back in 1993.

    Any news on a fix for us Linux users who use Chrome, Chromium etc 😕 I see there is no mention on the Eset website. Is it too much to ask of Eset that they actually 'officially' acknowledge that there is a problem and they have a plan of action. I really do detest companies that don't keep their customers in the loop about progress (if any).

    A few final comments:
    1. Never ever install a browser extension/add-on from a web site request. Always install the extension from the Store associated with that particular browser.
    2. Never ever absolutely assume that a browser Store extension/add-on is 100% safe. Google notoriously and Firefox to a lesser extent do not test their Store extensions for malware prior to being placed in the Store. Apps are usually removed only after someone has discovered one is malicious or potentially unwanted status.
    3. Configure your browser such that extensions/add-on's are not automatically added. In other words, you must manually allow the request.
    4. AV solutions are as a rule are quite poor in detecting browser extension/add-on malware. This is because the app is not a stand-alone executable but running as a processing extension to the browser.

    If you are currently in Canada , you should buy from Canadian store
    Same as your credit card, you should buy from same country or you will get errors when you are trying to buy from ESET authorized stores.

    Buy through your browser , not the software , you may or may not receive a username among the cd-key , if you only received a cd-key , you will need to convert it to username and password , an ESET staff can help you with this

    We have recently discovered a problem sending customer care requests from the built-in form in ESET NOD32 for Linux desktop. I would recommend contacting ESET LLL via the web form or phone. We are working on a resolution to make the internal form work.
    We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Nightowl received kudos from Agathon in Using eset authentication server (with eset firewall as default)   
    Unfortunately there is no courses for ESET as far as I know
    But your ideal way for this is to install one of the either , ESS or EIS , you can firewall your RDP port which is TCP port 3389 to your IP Addresses so that will rest your mind that only yourself can connect
    but probably your provider has some built in firewall in your c-panel which can help you protect your VS
    If you can create Virtual Machines like in Google Cloud , it's fun to try OPNSENSE if you like to make some projects.

    The worm is replicating itself from one of the computers or shares in the Network , ESET won't be able to remove it from the remote location , it will only be able to protect the computer that it's installed on
    You need to clean the worm from the infected PC/share , first of all you should disconnect it from the network to prevent it from keep trying replicate itself to others, then you try to clean it off and make sure the machine is fine and then you put it back to the network.

    Your current license should cover you to upgrade your Endpoints and your current server to the current versions
    As also Marcos said the File Server license will be included among the Endpoints.
    You also need to watch out while using Windows 7 , it left the support , unless you buy support from Microsoft.

    @Kirill Licenses for ESET products are not sold for a specific product version. Meaning, that with your current license you will be eligible to use the new V7 as well. Linux Endpoint product is the last one running the old version of architecture / scanning core, and it will be updated to V7 soon. We are already running a beta program (available here), V7 should not have this issue at all.
