    The free version of ZoneAlarm definitely has been using  the Kaspersky engine for a while: https://www.pcmag.com/reviews/check-point-zonealarm-free-antivirus-plus .
    The paid consumer and enterprise versions use more Kaspersky components: http://svendsen.me/worried-checkpoints-use-kaspersky-products-heres-disable-remove/

    peteyt gave kudos to sanjay mehta in NSO and Pegasus back in the spotlight   
    the world is rocked by the horrifying news of how despotic authoritarian governments and their agencies have used the spyware pegasus made by NSO from israel to intrude the phones & privacy of journalists/opposition leaders/judges/activists etc.
    from all accounts, it is now becoming clear that the two primary operating systems on phones, android & ios by google & apple have intentional backdoors disguised as security bugs to allow the security agencies to snoop into any smart phone worldwide.
    my question is, as a responsible antivirus vendor, will eset ever be able to protect the users from such illegal intrusions ? is it ever possible, considering that the OS itself has been laid bare to such intrusions by incorporating "security bugs".
    phones, especially the smart phones are are no longer secure, but the stunning silence of all AV vendors is even more cause for concern.

    I see them the same as the passwordrevealor guy, designing something to hack, but NSO gets a pass because they do it for "law enforcement and national security"

    What I find funny is the people behind pegasus keep saying this person and this person etc. weren't being tracked by the software and the next thing they say they don't have access to customer data so can't see who/what their customers are spying on, which contradicts the previous statements

    peteyt received kudos from LesRMed in ESET Tech Support   
    My guess is that this is just included in case the user requires remote help, and it is just there to cover themselves i.e. it's made quicker by the fact the user has to already agree to it. I think they would still need to send the download, but it gets the legal stuff out the way ready. I could be wrong but I think this is probably most likely

    peteyt gave kudos to Marcos in DotNet MSIL / Injector.VGR   
    We've nailed it down. A legit tool was backdoored and loads a malicious dll with zero detection at VT which loads the following encrypted payload:

    I expect the detection to be available momentarily via streamed/pico updates.
    Also please confirm that you have enabled the LiveGrid Feedback system for maximum protection.

    Note: It is not Eset's responsibility to help web site owners remove malware from their web sites. Recently, @Marcos has far exceeded what is required as an Eset moderator in assisting web site owners identify malware on their web sites.

    peteyt gave kudos to Marcos in Eset Push Notification Service - problem when offline   
    ESET Push Notification Service has been used in business products for years already and now it's also leveraged by consumer products, to communicate with my.eset.com, Anti-Theft servers, licensing servers, etc.
    As mentioned above, in future versions it will be possible to disable the notifications when EPNS is not available.

    peteyt received kudos from notimportant in Is it safe to install Lightroom Mod APK 2021 for Android?   
    I should add that anything that is cracked that appears safe, could be dangerous, even if not detected.
    The problem is that as these are from unoriginal sources, you never know what they have done to it e.g. included hidden extras. Cracks are often used for malware distribution

    I dont think this is the right place to ask about "cracked" apk files 😬

    peteyt received kudos from Peter Randziak in High use of Memory by ESET Internet Security   
    Eset do recommended people use pre release updates on non production computers. The reason is often they will release new versions for people to test, often fixing issues, and by multiple people using it they can test if it works and also if there are any compatibility issues
    E.g. they could release a pre release update to the main stable channel that could actually have issues but they weren't detected because not many people had used that version. Eset does have quality control, checks etc. But issues can happen, things missed etc.

    peteyt gave kudos to Nightowl in Logins for 1.3 million Windows RDP servers collected from hacker market   
    I wonder why people open RDP to all , when sometimes it's companies that do that.. and even though you are opening it to all and still using a password like

    Running unpatched systems that are open to all with weak passwords, that is really bad.
    And if it had to be open to all , some products need to be used for protection , like an IPS or some NGFW and a looooong and complicated password is also needed , I wonder what kind of logic is this
    Firewalls are crying in the corner..

    peteyt received kudos from Page42 in Unwanted marketing message   
    Have you previously backed up settings and then reinstalled eset and then loaded the backed up settings?
    I could be wrong @Marcos but if my memory serves me correct there was a problem with this setting in the past.
    It wasn't being properly backed up/restored. When someone backed up the setting and then loaded it it would show as disabled but the user  had to enable and then disable again  as it wasn't properly saved
    EDIT
    Just found the link I remembered. Not sure if it's any good or related

    I'd also like this - I use 2FA wherever possible and an extra layer of protection is always a good one. Could always have options to remember devices to if the user wants to

    I did get the same alert I believe yesterday and I believe it was at the same time I'd opened steam but it went off straight away. Haven't been able to reproduce as of yet though

    As far as I know, this was already requested and adding 2FA is on the to-do list.

    peteyt received kudos from Aryeh Goretsky in What is the difference between an original ESET license and a pirated ESET license?   
    One thing that happens on this forum is a lot of users post that their license has been flagged. This normally happens when someone or some site sells a license to more people than the license is designed for.
    What seems to happen is the seller will buy a license for 1 single user and resell it to multiple users but as the license is for one user eset's systems will automatically detect it is being used on multiple devices and block it. For this reason eset always recommends users buy directly from their website and not other sites Including the likes of Amazon and Ebay who have users selling things.
    In general a lot of software can be obtained illegally via cracks but this is very risky as cracks are a popular method for distributing malware. The problem is you don't know what they have added to the program
