  1. One of our clients has two (2) phantom accounts (John and Henk). Anti theft is enabled for the phantomaccount "Henk". Is this even possible? Does he have to keep both or can he delete "John"? If so how?
  2. This is yet another scam: I had reported about this earlier: Scam: I'm a member of an international hacker group Headers: Originally in English, but now the message is being translated into Dutch: Again, this is a scam. There is nothing to worry about. You can ignore this.
  3. It was reported from Parental Control in ESET Internet Security. Sorry, @Marcos. Can you move this to the correct forum? Meanwhile I have found the reason: "Based on the logs, parental control stopped working after the request to resolve a category for IPv6-like URLs. This hasn't been implemented yet. A partial workaround for this will be implemented, so instead of causing parental control to be non-working, such URLs will be treated as uncategorized." If anyone is experiencing this problem it should have been fixed as of today.
  4. From a customer: Today I keep getting a pop up message saying the above and saying I should reenter my licence key. Which I have done. I also logged onto my.eset.com and I choose to send an email for eset verification which I have done, but still getting error message. I see parental control module 1604 was updated on 17/10/2108 so guessing this triggered it?"
  5. If you have received an email with subject "I'm a member of an international hacker group", it's a scam. Hi, Has anyone received an email saying: your email account was hacked? someone has sent an email you from your email account? they have your password? you were infected by a virus? the hacker has access to your messages, social media accounts, and messengers? the hacker has full dumps (backups) of you data? the hacker has recorded you? Well, this is not true. It's a scam. See below. But first, here's a sample of such an email: Now let's analyze this for a moment: your email account was not hacked; the hacker is just trying to use fear, obligation, and guilt to blackmail you. It's emotional blackmail. Don't let them fool you. the hacker has not sent an email from your email account. The only thing he did was change the "from address". Anyone can do that. More info here. they may have an old password. If you're still using that password just change it and use a strong password or a password manager. Passwords are available online. It's not that hard. See here or here or just Google it. When large websites get hacked hackers usually put the data online to show off. You can check if your password has been stolen. you were not infected by a virus?, the hacker is simply spreading FUD (an acronym for fear, uncertainty and doubt). You can scan your computer if you wish. the hacker has no access to your messages, social media accounts, etc. Again FUD. the hacker has full dumps (backups) of you data? More FUD. the hacker has recorded you? The FUD is getting boring. Some people work on desktops without webcams. So how can you record then? Once again: if you receive a similar email, it's a scam. It's safe to ignore it.
  6. I was just about to add a reply. I have solved it myself. And you were right, @Rami! I restarted the computer and the problem was solved. Thank you.
  7. I am getting this error: In Setup > Advanced setup > DETECTION ENGINE > AMSI : AMSI is enabled. There was another thread here but it does not apply to me (I believe that person had AMSI disabled).
  8. Not sure this is the same, @Marcos. This thread is about taskhostw.exe and your thread is about devicecensus.exe, no?
  9. I was under the impression it was related to this file. I might be wrong. Sorry.
  10. Can y'all check for a file called taskhostw.exe If you have it this may be the culprit...
  11. Everyday I get a notification saying taskhostw.exe wants to access my webcam. I block it but it comes back every day. Is taskhostw.exe safe or not?
  12. You clearly didn't read the links. Do you at least agree with me on that?
