  1. I disagree VSD info is not that important because ESET products still detect threats based on VSD Removing info about Virus signature database in the taskbar will cause more time consuming to check info It's not simplification. It just blocking quick way to check info and bad user experience design.
  2. Without consent. Coin miner is malware. I hope that security software must detect such adware and Javascript more aggressive way.
  3. Windows Firewall

    You have a ESET Multi Device Security license so you don't need to buy something else for firewall. If you want ESET Antivirus + ESET Firewall, Just download ESET Internet Security from uninstall ESET NOD32 Antivirus, install ESET Internet Security Use your ESET Multi Device Security license to activate the software.
  4. Try ShadowExplorer ( hxxp:// )
  5. CCleaner Malware second payload discovered This is not good. It is more sophisticated we think.
  6. CCleanup: A Vast Number of Machines at Risk File: Malwarebytes, ClamAV and Kaspersky(cloud detection) could detect a malware. CCleaner v5.33.6162 and CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191 had been compromised. If you use CCleaner v5.33.6162 and CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191 you must update a program and scan the system with Malwarebytes (free).
  7. I think that MBAM is still effective second opinion tool. If you really throw away lifetime license. I'm willing to take it. * I know you are kidding
  8. Each to his own. Of course, You don't have to and also why not? CheckMAL AppCheck Anti-Ransomware free edition shows strong automatic behavior detection and provides automatic real-time backup of original files to recover files. You can add a extra layer which ESET does not provide. it's free and there are many quality free products. Do not think paid product is always better than free product? most case but not always.
  9. I agree with you and Ransomware Phishing (FedEx, UPS, DHL, Résumé, Friends or co-worker email) has become much more sophisticated especially after Yahoo service massive data breaches(1 billion Yahoo account has been hacked). I also received some Phishing email from full name of business partners, co-works and friends. Cyber criminals use vulnerability of PDF and MS Word document. For example if you open the résumé file (pdf or ms word) your system can be infected without any knowledge. Employee who receives tons of emails daily they can make a mistake and click or open file accidentally anytime even though he or she got cybersecurity education. But it's pointless Malwarebytes can detect that or ESET can detect this...etc at this point. If you send ELC logs to ESET staff then people who use ESET product will get benefit. I usually reported financial malware and adware which ESET missed. ESET product shows decent detection rate result all the time about Ransomware but it does not have a strong behavior-based detection system like Symantec SONAR or Kaspersky System Watcher for unknown malware(ex: new ransomware variants) and most non-technical people make difficult and use ESET's HIPS(Host intrusion prevention system) rules. You have to pay to use Malwarebytes Real time scan components. You can try CheckMAL AppCheck Anti-Ransomware free edition (it is free for personal use) It works with ESET product. Just my 2 cents
  10. "ESET NOD32 Antivirus nor ESET Endpoint Security v5 do not protect you from malware exploiting CVE2017-0144 at the network level." I understand that ESET NOD32 Antivirus does not protect from EternalBlue exploit(Wannacry ransomware attack) and EternalRomance exploit at the 'network level' because ESET NOD32 Antivirus does not have a firewall & IDS ESET NOD32 Antivirus also has a HIPS and exploit protection based on same database with EIS and ESS so I believe that ESET NOD32 Antivirus could protect the system from EternalBlue exploit and EternalRomance exploit when it happened WannaCry ransomware Petya Ransomware Outbreak. Any ESET staff can confirm ESET NOD32 Antivirus also can protect system from NSA exploits(EternalBlue exploit, EternalRomance ) at that time? Of course, I'm not talking about 'network level' protection.
  11. Are you using other software for adware or ransomware with eset nod32? Uninstall other apps and test it.
  12. There is no difference between Eset nod32 antivirus and Eset internet security for PUP detection. Check your web browser extensions / add-on and program related with Pop-up. remove it.
  13. It's true. Not just activation. Clearly "Use and activation in Canada only" Even if the installed and already activated ESET software is working outside Canada you are breaking the license. You cannot activate again outside Canada for fresh with a clean installation(Doesn't matter you activated once in Canada) It's very strong antivirus product regional restrictions I've ever seen. ESET did not do this before in Canada but has changed now.
  14. ESET Product (Retail box edition)- "For use and activation in Canada only." Today, I could confirm that - I cannot use the software outside Canada under license (I don't have to use) - I cannot activate the software again outside Canada in case after reset or OS clean install (reasons: malware infection, bad Windows 10 updates, major Windows 10 updates..etc) even if I activated in Canada once I returned the box to retail store and got a full refund. I believe that if user activated the software under condition once then the key must be region-free and no more restrictions but it is NOT.
