    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in ESET Memories   
    AMON is the former name of the real-time protection module. We still call it internally that way and also real-time protection driver in the latest v13 is called eamonm.sys.

    I gather amon is just a part of eset? Interesting to see how the GUI and GUIs in general have changed over the years

    Oh this is very old! , I never had my hands on it , it would be awesome to have our hands on the installers again to make some fun with XP virtual machines , but I guess that is not possible
    But I miss those days , golden time.
    When you had to remove Norton because it's eating most of the 512MB of RAM and switching to ESET for it being light on the PC
    v2 Control Panel I found it :

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in emails from ESET   
    It's a genuine email that you would receive for instance if your license was registered to a seller's email address and another user with the ESET license registered to the same email address was attempting to add it to the license manager. Please provide the public ID of your license so that I can check it out.

    Aryeh Goretsky received kudos from santoso in Are Old Version of Orbit Downloader Free from DDoS Weapon ?   
    Hello,

    I am the author of the Orbital Decay: the dark side of a popular file downloading tool article on ESET's WeLiveSecurity blog.

    Given the nature of the what was reported, I would caution against using any version of the software.

    Regards,

    The detection is actually correct. It was already reported here in the past and obviously an administrator of the website still hasn't removed the references to defpush.com which is why the detection is triggered.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Installer halts on windows7   
    When installing ESET on Windows 7, SP1 must be installed as well as Windows Updates KB4474419 and KB4490628 that add SHA256 code signing support.
    As for LiveGrid, please provide a screen shot of the pop-up prompting you to enable LiveGrid since we do not display anything like that if you choose not to use the LiveGrid Feedback system during installation. LiveGrid actually consists of 2 parts: LiveGrid Reputation system (should be always enabled) and LiveGrid Feedback system for submitting already detected and highly suspicious files (optional).
    The LiveGrid Reputation system is passive. It is essential for keeping protection up to date against emerging threats. This system doesn't submit anything and only queries LiveGrid to get essential information about hashes of files and to receive a list of malicious objects that is generated continually as ESET processes new malware throughout the day. Disabling LiveGrid Reputation system has also also adverse effect on performance, detection (the gap between updates is not eliminated) and cleaning. When disabled, ESET will not be able to skip whitelisted and trusted files that you have on the disk and will continue to scan them. When it comes to detection, ESET may not be able to recognize new malware because of missing LiveGrid blacklists. When cleaning, ESET may not be able to kill and clean malware because of missing LiveGrid information about files.
    The ESET Feedback system is active and it's purpose is to submit already detected and highly suspicious files to ESET. The more people use it, the more new malware the product can detect and clean and the smaller probability of encountering a false positive.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Yara Rules   
    It's possible to use Yara rules within ESET Threat Intelligence but that's a separate paid service that provides advanced users with insight into our intel and it's not related to user's network in any way, it's global.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in Endpoint Security Anti phishing non functional   
    Tonight (CET) we are going to publish links to fixes for Endpoint v5. A bit later we plan to release also a fix that will be smaller in size and will download the appropriate installed of the latest v5 Endpoint instead of having it bundled.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in How do i recovery 'Eset EndPoing Security 5.0' back with out any automatic update to 'Eset Smart Security' ???   
    Please refer to https://forum.eset.com/announcement/5-endpoint-50-65-and-eset-server-products-65-non-functional-as-of-feb-8-antivirus-and-antiphising-is-non-functional-reported/ and the KB article https://support.eset.com/en/alert7396-legacy-products-startup-issue.
    This was caused by a bug in old versions of our products, namely Endpoint 5.0.2248+ (except the very latest version 5.0.2271) and versions 6.5.
    There is already a fix for Endpoint v5, please refer to https://support.eset.com/en/alert7396-legacy-products-startup-issue and the section How to download the fixing tool for v5.
    Please elaborate more on "The 'Personal Firewall' is work only in 'Eset Smart Security V5'.  V6 and V7 not working properly." The firewall works properly both in v6 and v7. What works differently for you in v5?
    Endpoint v5 is going to reach end of life by the end of this year which means that even engine updates will not be guaranteed afterwards. We strongly recommend to upgrade to Endpoint 7.2 to those who can upgrade as soon as possible. Also please keep in mind that Endpoint v5 is not effective enough to protect you from current emerging threats while v7.2 provides a bunch of new protection features to keep you safe. Last but not least, neither Endpoint 6.6 nor 7.0, 7.1 and 7.2 were affected by this issue.

    Thank you. The address is categorized as malicious by Web Control. We have reported miscategorization to the provider of the url categorization database. In the mean time, creating a Web Control permissive rule and moving it on top of other Web Control rules should do the trick:

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Nightowl in Chrome 79 always starts a core dump and crashes   
    The current up-to-date version for desktop edition is the v4
    Endpoint edition v7 is running as BETA currently , once it goes stable I believe they will start looking at building the v7 for desktop.
    The fix that Marcos talked about would be probably a small fix (hotfix) that will solve the issue with browsers and that's it , not a major upgrade.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to SysEPr in Future changes to ESET Security Management Center / ESET Remote Administrator   
    Description: Color code failing tasks
    Detail:  The server used to color code the tasks that are failing. I'm running the latest ESMC, and now, that doesn't happen, and I have a hard time figuring out which tasks are failing. Is there a way to color code it again, or where can I see it? All I get is a generic email saying: "At least one client task has invalid configuration and therefore will fail."

    We'd like to use the device control features in ESET to replace the software we currently use, but unfortunately we aren't able to customize the specific message that displays. We want it to include our corporate policy for external devices and instructions to the user when a device they plug in gets blocked. Ideally we'd like to also include a URL that the user could click on to generate a request for access. 
    In short, it would be nice to be able to customize notification messages depending on the event in addition to globally.
     
    Thank you!

    Welcome to the ESET Security Forum!
     
    ESET is pleased to provide you with this resource in order to make it easy for you to ask questions and receive answers about ESET's products and services.  Understand that the ESET Security Forum is a private community for existing customers of ESET, prospective customers who are interested in ESET's software, ESET employees and business partners.  Because of this focus, it is not like a general public forum, where conversations take place on a variety of non-ESET and non-security related topics.
     
    With that in mind, we have the following rules in place:
     
    When registering for an account on the forum, please fill out the information accurately and correctly.
    Do not enter the Username and Password for your licensed ESET software, but instead choose a username (in Latin) unique to this forum.  You should also choose a suitably complex password unique to this forum as well. Do not create multiple accounts.  If a person is found creating multiple accounts, ESET reserves the right to take whatever actions it deems necessary, including banning, blocking, deleting and/or merging them.  The exception to this rule is ESET staff, who may create multiple accounts for testing purposes. No impersonating other forum users, ESET employees or other people. Use appropriate language in the forum.  No vulgar, obscene or rude language will be tolerated. No vulgar, obscene or otherwise offensive images or video will be tolerated. ESET staff have the right to move, edit or modify messages that you post.  This may be done for clarity, to move a message to more appropriate forum where it will receive more attention, or for other reasons outlined in these rules. All decisions by ESET staff are final, and not open to discussion. This list may be updated at any time.  Please periodically visit this page to review any updates. Do not post direct links to any executable files, malicious/suspicious software or web sites in public messages, even if you think the software or site is clean and incorrectly detected by ESET.  Break up the URL by inserting spaces into it, or replacing the protocol handler with an obfuscated one, like . Do not attach malicious or suspicious files to messages, even if you think they are clean.  Write a public message, and then use the "report this message" option to send a private message to ESET staff with a link. Do not post any personally identifiable information (PII) about yourself, such as an email or mailing address or phone number, in a public message. Do not post the username and password or license key for your ESET software in a public message. Do not post links to software cracking tools, license key generators, pirated copies of software or other illicit software in the forum.  If you wish to report a site, write a public message, and then use the "report this message" option to send a private message to ESET staff with a link. Do not post private correspondence (private messages, email, etc.) publicly within the forum. Do not post "A vs. B" or "Which product is best?" type messages in the forum. Do not post overtly commercial messages in the forum (this includes in your signature). Do not pre-announce releases.  Due to differences in scheduling, it may sometimes take several hours after a release has appeared on ESET's web site for the release announcement to appear here in the forum. Do not abuse the forum's rich text controls.  Messages and signatures with inappropriate font selection, including size, color and, for signatures, length, may be edited by forum staff to conform to standards of decency. Do not ask other users for logs, especially if they may contain sensitive or other personally identifiable information. Posts made on behalf of a 3rd party company may only be made from accounts registered with an email address from the company's domain (verifiable by ESET staff). Do not use the "Report post" function for other purposes than reporting inappropriate content requiring moderators' attention. Do not report possibly incorrect detections or blocks (false positives) in the forum unless they may affect a lot of users. If you think that your application or website is detected or blocked incorrectly, please report it to ESET as per the instructions at https://support.eset.com/kb141. Be civil, do not post sarcastic, offensive or mocking comments towards any person or entity. Do not post messages that are off-topic, keep the discussion to the point and do not lead it astray. To discuss a different, unrelated issue or question, always create a new topic. If you have any questions or comments, please contact one of ESET's moderators.

    Aryeh Goretsky received kudos from RB fashion in Future changes to ESET NOD32 Antivirus   
    Hello,
     
    Not every requested feature can be added at once.  ESET's project managers have to carefully look at the technical and market requirements for each request.  Sometimes, the amount of work required to implement a requested feature may mean that it needs to be put off for a few version releases until enough engineering time can be budgeted to implement, test and maintain the feature.  And sometimes, a feature might be requested that is just out of scope, offers little real-world benefit to customers or may even be against ESET's business practices.
     
    In any case, what I would suggest is to provide as detailed a description as possible of the feature you are requesting, in order for ESET's project managers to make better sense of it, and a little patience, as not everything can be done at once.
     
    Regards,

    It's not that big deal in my opinion @nonamelab, It's a way to bring more people to use ESET and in the same time giving the person who invited the other person who doesn't use ESET , a month of usage or more I don't remember exactly.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Cousin Vinny in Request for feedback on a plan to change handling of Potentially Unwanted & Unsafe Applications   
    Speaking as someone who is hands-on IT management rather than a reseller or MSP:  That is how I would expect it to behave and should.  My endpoints are configured for strict cleaning so I have not dealt with this issue, however if end users were greeted with option dialogs during an av scan without any way for the admin to suppress I would be quite aggravated with the product.
