sdnian gave kudos to Marcos in Endpoint Security Anti phishing non functional
Update (Feb 10, 16:30 CET):
1, A fix tool that will replace ekrn.exe with a fixed version will be ready within today (Feb 10). The tool will need to be run on machines with affected ESET Security products that are malfunctioning. No restart should be needed to get the product work. The tool should work for affected Endpoint v5 as well as v6.5 products also on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.
2, If you have an affected version of the product and it still works alright, do not restart the computer yet. Tomorrow (Feb 11) we'll be releasing Antivirus and antispyware module which will patch ekrn to fix the issue.
3, We should have 6.5 installers with a fixed ekrn.exe ready by tomorrow and will replace them in the repository too.
4, After remedying the issue, please consider upgrading to the latest Endpoint v7.2 wherever possible. While Endpoint v5 and 6.5 products will work until they reach EOL, we strongly encourage you to use the latest version which not only addresses bugs and issues from older versions but also brings substantially better protection against current threats.
sdnian gave kudos to MichalJ in Policy Setting - Exclusions
This is related to the new exclusions system. In case your policy has been converted from an old one, or you use older version of ESMC than 7.1, you will have the split of Performance & Detection Exclusions. If you create a new policy, you can only add performance exclusions to it, and detection exclusions would be handled via the new exclusions tab in the main menu.
So the one with detection exclusions is most probably a policy that included some detection exclsions (other than by path) before. The one which does not have them, is a policy which had not them defined before.
sdnian received kudos from pps in No need password to disable firewall in EES
The EES version is 7.1.2053. I've set a password protect in EES. When I right click the EES icon in the systray, click 'Pause firewall (allow all traffic)', a popup window appears asking for a password on the screen. Just ignore it, right click the EES icon to pause firewall again. Then the firewall been disabled now. It seems a bug, please check it.
sdnian received kudos from Peter Randziak in Activation fail. ECP.20006
Thanks for @MartinK and @Peter Randziak help.
I have found a solution to resolve this issue. The Sophos Firewall have a function - Web Proxy, it works as transparent proxy mode by default, after I added a rule to bypass transparent proxy for ESMC host, the product activation works well.
