  1. Finally! eset you are catching up with zero day protecion by putting in smart mode in your HIPS for version 8 all you need to do now is improve it to make it more responsive and enable it by default.
  2. The biggest problem with eset is the HIPS the way it's setup by default it doesn't do anything and it does not provide any zero day protection this problem has been there with eset since versions 5,6,7,8 please fix this. A lot of other security software testers would agree with me that this is something that needs to be fixed. If you don't believe this is a problem go to youtube.com search for pcsecuritychannel and click on the smart security 8 beta video and smart security 7 video then you will see what am talking about.
  3. Hi Thanks for your message all of the security software company's need to improve their PUP detection because there is always going to be a pup or pup's that are not in the software's database which make's them easy to install but sometimes a pain to remove without the right tools. PUP's in my view are malware because they come under Spyware/Adware.
  4. Hi Thanks for your message I really hope they set it to smart mode by default in the final version of smart security 8 I don't think it will be but if was it would perform much better against zero malware and you will actually see the HIPS working. The HIPS doesn't really perform very well in it's default setting automatic mode with rules. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ They need to work a lot on PUP Detection as well.
  5. The way the HIPS is setup by default it will just allow all unknown files to run and they might infect your system even if it's a false positive it still should ask the user what to do instead of just allowing it to run so people are not going to realise that they will have to change it to interactive mode or learning mode in smart security 7 and to smart mode in smart security 8 beta smart mode is better then interactive mode because with it set like that (it will ask the user for an action if no action is taken it will allow it this is the best option as it gives you more control of what hap
  6. In the final version of smart security 8 the HIPS needs to be set to smart mode so if you run an unknown file that eset does not no about it will block it and ask the user what to do instead of just allowing it to run then it will perform much better against zero day malware.
  7. My job is testing antivirus software and I tested eset today the way HIPS is setup it doesn't really do anything it didn't block any of the unknown malware I ran, The HIPS is the biggest problem with eset in my opinion and the Advanced Memory Scanner is pretty much useless at blocking unknown malware. Eset have no rules available to us so users will have to change it to learning mode or interactive mode which will keep asking you questions. If you have got some rules they need to be available to the users. Please Please Please fix this problem because the way it's setup it d
  8. You need to work a lot on your HIPS for zero day malware and unknown malware because you don't have any rules and because there are none preset any malware that is unknown with be able to fully run it should ask the user weather to allow it or block it. I have been an eset fan since version 3 and then the HIPS came along in 5 and is still not changed in 6,7,8 the problem is still here You need to change your default HIPS mode from automatic mode with rules to be more involved with the user this in my view is the biggest problem with eset. Please fix this in the final version of 8 or I
  9. You need to work a lot on your hips for zero day malware and unknown malware because you don't have any rules and because there are none preset any malware that is unknown with be able to fully run it should ask the user weather to allow it or block it. I have been an eset fan since version 3 and then the hips came along in 5 and is still not changed in 6,7,8 the problem is still here Please fix this in the final version of 8 or I will be leaving eset for good.
