DoubleAgent


Recommended Posts

According to this article ...

https://www.wired.com/2017/03/clever-doubleagent-attack-turns-antivirus-malware/

... and others I have read in the past few days, ESET is vulnerable to this potential attack.

Are there any plans for ESET to patch its Windows products to mitigate this issue? What is ESET's official position?

No, it's not. ESET has been even among the first to bring support for protected services which was already implemented in some v9 versions. V10 fully supports protected services on Windows 8.1+ which means that it's not vulnerable.

What's more, protection for the core process ekrn.exe (and egui.exe too) was added already in v4.2 quite a long time ago.

Currently most of less important ESET's processes are already protected by self-defense.

Since there's an ongoing topic on this subject (https://forum.eset.com/topic/11394-zero-day-exploit/), we'll draw this one to a close.
