    You have activated Anti-Theft on "DO....Y-LAPTOP", the name of the phantom account is "zyssowmqbx". You can disable AT via the AT portal https://anti-theft.eset.com. On "DESKTOP-J.....J-R......p" the name of the phantom account is "fkiynygdck".

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to ebill in About ESET Banking & Payment protection   
    Please try to open B&P from the shortcut and go to your bank site, FF should work fine for you this way.
    With FF and ESET banking and payment a separate profile is created. You may set your personal security you wish FF to use with B&P in this profile by just opening B&P and choosing FF "options" while in the B&P window (you can use tighter security than normal browser for example).
    Personally I love this method of operation, I have just my secure payment sites in the B&P profile. I open B&P from the desktop shortcut when I want to have its extra level of protection while making payments. I even organize my favorites in that profile making the house finances very efficient.  
    Getting every site to open as desired is quite a challenge with modern site design. If you supply your bank site the moderators may be able to pass that on to developers to see why it is not opening automatically.
    I hope this may help in your enjoyment of ESET, in my opinion one of the best  -- ebill

    Yes. The domain in question has began to resolve to an IP address that was blocked 2 years ago due to malware.

    The FP will be fixed in a few minutes. The IP address has been blocked since 2018.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in License Activation Issue   
    ESET NOD32 Antivirus for Linux desktop is a legacy product. Legacy products do not support activation but require a username and password for update.These are not usually included in the license email since current products require only a license key for activation but can be provided by customer care on request.
    I'm gonna send you a personal message with your U/P momentarily.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in ESET is blocking access to my business websites in Chrome   
    It looks like things have been fixed on the web server. Likely there was an issue with expired OCSP responses by the server.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in System Cleaner: feature request   
    This feature is intended for common users who have been hit by malware which changed some system settings and policies. Using the tool the user can reset particular settings and thus avoid reinstallation of the OS.
    The tool was in no way meant to be for experienced users who can fix possible issues themselves.

    According to https://support.eset.com/en/kb3678-is-my-eset-product-supported-eset-end-of-life-policy-home-products, v9 reached EOL in Dec 2019. We do not provide technical support and do not guarantee any further module updates for v9 and older.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in How long will NOD32 AntiVirus keep update database for Windows XP?   
    The latest consumer version with support for Windows XP is version 9 which reached end of life in Dec 2019. While we still provide module updates for it and will continue to provide them for some more time, module updates are not guaranteed for unsupported products that have reached EOL and can be discontinued without a prior notice.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to Marcos in ESET Home products and av-test.org   
    Both products are more-less same in terms of protection features. On the othet hand taking part in tests is quite costly so AV makers have to make decisions about spending the money effectively which is one of the reasons for that.

    Aryeh Goretsky received kudos from fabioquadros_ in NOD32 Detect Stalkerware   

    Yes.  Most are going to be detected as spyware, but also detections of trojans or agents are possible as well.

    Aryeh Goretsky gave kudos to JerryPenguin in ESET NOD32 Service does not start   
    Hello, everyone,
    now it works again.
    After a tip here in the forum I uninstalled and reinstalled the software several times.
    At the first attempts I had problems with the activation, but this worked without problems at the fourth or fifth attempt.
    Now my NOD32 runs also under Fedora 31 with kernel 5.6.x without problems.
    Happy Easter and stay healthy at home

    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 ?   

    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.

    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.
