How will .dll-injection blocking in Chrome 69 affect Endpoint Antivirus?

Recommended Posts

I understand that ESET Endpoint Antivirus uses .dll injection to Chrome as part of its normal operation. Google has announced that starting in Chrome 69, Chrome will start blocking this code injection, and by January 2019, all injection will be blocked. (https://blog.chromium.org/2017/11/reducing-chrome-crashes-caused-by-third.html)

How will this affect the protection that Endpoint Antivirus provides, and how that protection happens? Will there be any reduction in Endpoint Antivirus' capabilities? Or does ESET already have adaptive changes in development to address this Chrome change?

Currently we don't have any official statement on this subject. We'll keep you all posted and announce any news. Unfortunately, injection into Chrome cannot be 100% replaced with any other method.

A post-crash alert in Chrome like the one you linked is exactly how I became aware of this issue.
