  1. Yes exactly. They are very sensitive about false positives and this is why they falling behind. Some other products are doing well in this regard while maintaining low false positives.
  2. Still that's not good enough. Maybe we could ignore if it was one or maybe two. But 7 ransomware miss at the time of testing is a huge number. It shows again what the OP suggested that ESET's ransomware shield is very bad and almost not effective at all. ESET needs to improve.
  3. Sadly this has been a known weak point of ESET and hasn't been improved it seems. Even in the last MRG-Effitas test, ESET missed 7 ransomware which is the worst result by far in the test. ESET is very weak against ransomware. https://www.mrg-effitas.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/MRG_Effitas_360_2021Q1.pdf
  4. This is not a solution to your problem but I think you should put the allow rule above the block one for Macrium. For firewall, the rules on top gets prioritize over the bottom ones. The same is probably true for HIPS. I'm not sure though so correct me if I'm wrong.
  5. This is common for Windscribe VPN to do this. You have to allow it if you want to keep using Windscribe. They use IKEv2 protocol by default, and it needs to temporarily modify the host file for that reason. It restores to the previous state when you disconnect. Also, this must be new for HIPS smart mode. I have never seen this before. Instead, I had to create my own rule to monitor host file modification. So I don't think this happened cause the VPN was updated recently. It's probably because ESET updated their HIPS Smart mode rule.
  6. You are right, but that didn't happen anymore when I reinstalled again a month later. The error logging issue is still common though for everybody if WMI is scanned. I also saw ESET's initial scan is scanning WMI. It shouldn't do this until something can be done to fix it.
  7. Can't something be done about this WMI error? I have been waiting for a few months for an update for ESET to fix it, but it hasn't happened yet.
  8. Nice one ESET 👍 Well said. I shared this in another forum and used this line.
  9. The forum has an option to enable dark theme? Where is it?
  10. No not this one. I mean ESET Endpoint product has full offline installer (160mb+ in size) containing all the modules till the day the installer was released.
  11. Is there anything wrong with ESET or its servers in general? In virustotal all ESET scans are resulting in "Timeout" https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/b3f6fbb4f049d0a99d882495ebc6b0086936daffa4275f1d4e36927e6e8dc8c2/detection
  12. I did, but it's downloading the initial update extremely slowly. 3 megabytes in 45 mins, so I had to uninstall again. Maybe something is wrong from my ISP's side. Everything else is running fine though. I don't know what's the problem. This is why I always wanted a full offline installer containing all modules. It would make the initial update smaller. ESET have such installer for business products but not for home.
