  1. On Mac CYBER SECURITY all traffic goes through esets_proxy. I know it has been like this for a while but for me it became issue when I went from 10.6 to 10.9 (clean install). Before (maybe it was on 10.6) I was able to use Little Snitch to filter outgoing connections by application and destination/port. Now it's tougher because many apps send all traffic through the Eset proxy and it's impossible to use filtering this way. I Can't meaningfully filter it. If I set one connection to block but then I need to set general rule to allow makes it the restriction redundant. I know Eset guys would t
  2. Just an update.. I tried to reinstall Eset and got again failure - installation failed message. However Eset got installed and it's running. This is weird. And that's after spending time manually cleaning the machine before. I am going to try installing version 4, just out of curiosity what it does. The version 4 used to run like an ice cream.
  3. I got rid of SugarSync. The Mac version got worse and worse with every release. For firewall, why don't you use Icefloor. I believe does better job with configuration than Eset CSP, if you are looking for wildcards and such. Eset's webfiltering is using Proxy so it's not transparent which application is connecting. Eset doesn't interfere with LittleSnitch, but it makes LittleSnitch completely pointless for connections that are forced through Eset proxy. You would have to block one by one by IP address, and that's not what LS is supposed to be designed for.
  4. In case you are wondering where is the Scheduler icon gone... I couldn't figure it out for a few minutes. You need to be logged into Eset CyberSecurity as Admin for the Scheduler icon to show up. The icon should be there but just greyed out, but not missing completely. Doesn't make sense and time wasted searching for it. Here is how it looks without being logged on as admin and after login (on the Home tab of the Eset window).
  5. Will do. What I mean with fresh install is obviously if I don't have anything installed on Mac then Eset runs fine as it should. But when I start loading stuff, 2xDropbox, Syncplicity, Hazel, Cubby, Sugarsync, Sharepoint tool.... all of which I need for work... plus App Tamer, Opera browser (or Firefox or Chrome, it doesn't matter), Witch, Outlook, Evernote, TextExpander, Little Snitch etc....... it starts to add. I can't pinpoint any of these having issues with Eset. I'll give it a try. If it doesn't work I don't have many options. Avast is probably consuming more resources than Eset
  6. This article says, heuristics on Mac is not really true Heuristics? QUOTE: "Sophos and Avast rely on these updates to protect you from malware as they do not have heuristics (actually none of the applications that are available for OS X use true heuristics)" SOURCE: hxxp://securityspread.com/2013/08/28/sophos-avast-antivirus-apps-os/ It is suggesting like if Eset Heuristics wasn't really worth it. Well I am thinking about turning the Heuristics off to see if it can resolve my issues... with CPU load on scan and virus updates.. https://forum.eset.com/topic/4529
  7. That non-descriptive error within the Installer is common for all applications which use OS X's installer when installation fails. If you want to see detailed progress and the log in realtime when installing something in OS X, press Command + L and select to 'View All Logs' when the window appears on the bottom. THANK YOU With the CPU, the real-time file system protection So, it is strange that you are getting up to 25% CPU when no activity is being performed (startup scan, update, realtime protection). Is there any heavy activity in 'Statistics' that might explain anything? There mig
  8. Exclusions in version 6 of CS is now buried under General settings. Personally I think it should have its own icon as it was before in the version 5.
  9. Can't install Eset CyberSecurity on OSX 10.9.5 due to unspecified installation error ------------------- SOLUTION: Run ONYX utility and all the maintenance tools and reboot. I didn't investigate further why this happened, maybe Eset support staff can review, it looks like the installer wasn't able to use the Temporary directory? ------------------- Issue: Installer gives me error message right after it starts “Validation of packages or something”.. I get the error message and installation stops. I tried uninstall using included uninstaller, manual cleanups etc.. Here

  11. What are benefit of Eset CyberSecurity (ECS) Firewall over the out-of-box firewall in OSX Mac? Does ECS work with the default application firewall? Does ECS handle incoming connections better than the built-in? Does ECS deal with PF and packet scanning and if yes, does it keep a local blacklist? Background: I use v 4 of ECS on a few Macs for a while and a couple of other Windows computers run Smartsecurity for a few years without any issues. OSX has default application firewall and using Waterroof I have modified a few rules in the packet firewall (IPFW) in OSX. in 10.7 and 10.8 the IPFW has
