EIS Wifi security problem


Recommended Posts

On all of my laptops (latest Windows 10 Home 64-bit), I've run into a serious security problem with ESET Internet Security 11.2.49.0. If a known Wifi network is not available, EIS forces itself onto any unsecured Wifi connection it can find when it wants to check for updates. Where I live, that means EIS usually forces itself onto the strongest unsecured connection named "xfinitywifi". I have EIS Known Networks set to the default setting of "Use Windows setting". Windows 10 is configured to only auto-connect to known Wifi networks and works correctly, except when EIS goes around it to look for updates.

After I posted this thread, I saw another thread where ESET appears to have acknowledged the problem. I would post the link here but it doesn't seem to work. Search the forum for "wifi problem after EIS update" (use the quotes when you search).

In that thread, where ESET states it should be addressed in a future version of the product, I hope they mean a patch is due soon. This is a serious security bug that allows for easy hacking.
