    This is nothing to be concerned about is it?

    Try changing it's scanning option from Auto to Scan.

    Sammo received kudos from Azure Phoenix in Brave Browser not protected by anti-phishing   
    I fixed the issue by changing the SSL scanning option from Auto to Scan. Now Eset detects phishing sites and malware just fine.

    It does not work with the new Edge Dev version and it often does not work with the newer versions of Firefox either.

    I just changed the year and months in the link to make it work. 😊

    I have always been very leery of comparison tests.
    Sorry if I came across as a bit snarky.

    Here we go again. Windows Defender had a whopping 74 false positives in this test. Refer to the below screen shot that clearly shows that WD "block-at-first-sight" was set to aggressive setting level; basically blocking execution of any process without established reputation. Whereas this might be acceptable to advanced security level professionals, it certainly isn't so for the average user; especially for corp. users.
     
    -EDIT- Also 55 of the WD 74 false positives were user dependent block/allow action. It is a no-no to have the user decide if a process is malicious or not:

    Ref.: https://www.av-comparatives.org/tests/real-world-protection-test-february-may-2019/
    Finally and most important, note the following. A-V C does not factor false positive scoring into its protection scores for its realtime tests as is done for its more comprehensive malware protection test series. Using the above false positive scoring criteria of 50% of user decisions are wrong, WD would have scored 27/752 or 96.4% placing it at the bottom of the protection scoring heap.

    A-V C is "very creative" when it comes to finding samples for its Realtime test series. It's not uncommon for it to slip in a few samples that are geographically restricted to one country and/or region within with an "in-the-wild" dispersion of < 10. The odds of encountering one these samples in close to zero.

    It must have taken a bit of digging to find a test from a year ago.
    Test like this are not worth their weight in salt.
    So what is your purpose and point in posting this?

    I assume the reference is to this year's most recent A-V C Realtime test where Eset scored 98.4%; approximately the same as it has previously scored recently in this test series.
    If one has concerns about Eset, refer to this more comprehensive test series where over 10,000 malware samples are used: https://www.av-comparatives.org/tests/malware-protection-test-march-2019/ . Eset scored 99.86% for malware protection.
    Again, this is only one AV Lab's test; and test series for that lab. Refer to all the AV lab tests that Eset participates in and you will observe that Eset is a top scorer overall.
