ESET NOD32 for Linux Desktop version crashes browsers and applications

Recommended Posts

Hello Marcos,

we have a strange behavior with the V4.0.90.


Notebook, INTEL i7, LinuxMINT MATE 18.3 64bit, 8 GB RAM, 240 GB SSD, HOME is crypted

Fresh installation of LinuxMINT MATE ends in an boot time of 11 seconds to login-screen.

After installation of V4.0.90 the boot time takes 21 seconds to login-screen???

Checked with linux-kernel 4.10.x/4.13.x/4.15.x - the same.

Installed is a file:

sudo nano /lib/systemd/system/eset.service

with content:

    Description=ESET Scanner Daemon

    ExecReload=/bin/kill -HUP $MAINPID


and set with:

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl start eset.service
sudo systemctl enable eset.service

This is necessary because without, the package mail-notification did not work.

Hello Marcos,

we decide to remove ESET V4.0.90 from some machines, because strange behavior.

In LinuxMINT MATE 18.3 64bit and using SEAMONKEY V2.49.2 64bit as browser platform, the RAM ressource goes sporadically high.

Normally the RAM usage with SEAMONKEY is about 800 MB. After an undefined time (mostly 5-50 min.) and nobody work at the machine, the RAM is about 1.2-1.8 GB???

Same happened with SEAMONKEY V2.49.3 64bit.

It did not happen with ESET V4.0.85 !!!

So, ESET in the version 4.0.90 makes a lot of add. work and problems.

Hello Eset Team

I was able to upgrade to NEW version and apparently there are no more unexpected errors with browser crashes or conflicts with any other application.

Thank you in advance for all your efforts.

I downgraded from 4.0.90 to 4.0.88 because after a while ESET disables itself, it is no longer in the taskbar and esets_gui is no longer in the visible process in system monitor. 4.0.88 version works fine and does not have this problem

We have prepared a new version 4.0.88 which addresses the issue. It hasn't been thoroughly tested by QA yet but we've installed it on Ubuntu 18.04 x64 and didn't notice any issues with browsers. It will undergo QA testing soon and then will be released for the public.

In the mean time, you can download a 64-bit installer from here.

That link isn't working for me. Has anyone tried this new version that can attest to the fix?
