I haven't taken much notice of eset_proxy process, but after the last update ( currently running Version: 6.8.300.0 ) My web browsers will randomly stop working. They "hang" on "establishing secure connection". I have 443 added to the port list, but I've tried with and without it.
When I DISABLE "Web access protection" everything comes back to life.
When the issue occurs it blocks Safari, Chrome and Opera all are the latest versions. This started happening with Mojave, and I thought it could have been that so I updated to Catalina and the issue persists.
I have no way of knowing
