I am little bit freaked out


Recommended Posts

I am little bit freaked out, I use eset online scanner (one time antivurus scanner), avast, malwarebytes, roguekiller, malwarebytes mbar (anti rootkit).

Today is weird, Eset online scanner after updating acts weird, after update it refuses to launch, roguekiller reports that there is while website where I download it says the most actual version is still 14.3.0.0.

Avast suddenly needed critical update, roguekiller says that it has new update 14.4.0.0 while website says newest udate it still 14.3.0.0, and when instalĺing new version it asks weird thing, that it needs to shut down Windows Explorer and Total Commander in order to install.

I have been using all of these programs for years and I never encountered anything like that, I scan my PC every few days, and it is also weird that all of these programs needed had a
huge update today and all of them are acting weird at the same time.
Thanks

 

P.S. Virustotal reports that ESET online scanner that I downloaded from official website has a virus in it, false positive or not?

Oh, and question, ESET online scanner just doesnt launch since new update that came today, can anyone from eset please fix this? Thanks

Online scanner can be obtained here https://www.eset.com/int/home/online-scanner/

Much safer way than to get it from other unknown sources , it could have something change or tampered or malware infused.

If you are feeling paranoid , you can install ESET internet security and run a deep scan so it could scan your computer.

I don't like Avast as a personal choice for AV , I would change to ESET and for roguekiller I have never heard of this software also , I would swap it with HitmanPro.

this exe you have uploaded to VT has a different name than the original exe that is listed in ESET website , I won't take it , go to the original source always.

I have uploaded ESET Online Scanner to VT https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/6f245d40f1cbbc1786ca5884fdf5a39782bfb39f56121fe76494dfab1f6c3b1c/detection

I get the same detection that you got with that other exe , I believe it's a false positive.

One detection by some obscure AV solution. It's a false positive.

Exes I uploaded are from original source, official eset website. Their name on my HDD is esetonlinescanner_sky.exe, also esetonlinescanner_enu.exe.

 

This is where I downloaded them:

https://www.eset.com/sk/internetova-ochrana-domacnosti/online-scanner-antivirus/

 

and also english version of the website,cannot find it anymore.

 

Not sure why they are called EOS_v3.exe on virustotal.

I am uploading them here, could you check them please? Thanks

 

esetonlinescanner_enu.zip esetonlinescanner_sky(2).zip

Guys, I downloaded eset online scanner from https://www.eset.com/int/home/online-scanner/

 

That you provided here. This one as well turns itself off right after I launch it.

 

I suppose the new update bugged it?

 

Edit: Point also is that I always downlad eset online scanner from official website :D, not from any other websites. I usually dont even have to because it updates by itself.

 

I scanned my pc few days ago and eset worked fine, but upon todays update it eset started shutting itself off right after launch.

It could be some kind of bug , if you need to keep Avast as the real time AV for your computer , then to make sure run a deep full scan of your computer and check the results , after that run HitmanPro scan.

"this exe you have uploaded to VT has a different name than the original exe that is listed in ESET website , I won't take it , go to the original source always. "

 

Nightowl, are you referring to EOS_v3.exe ? On hdd it is shown as esetonlinescanner_sky.exe.

 

So, is it internal name of the file then and all right? Especially considering I downloaded it from official website.

 

It seems like this shutting off has something to do with new update, I found in my downloaded folder an old esetonlinescanner_sky.exe file, it worked, but after update it too shut itself off and now that it is updated it doesnt want to turn on either.

If you feel there's a bug in Eset Online Scanner, post in the appropriate forum section; i.e. ESET Standalone Malware Removal Tools.

A deep scan of your PC and then a scan from HitmanPro after them I believe you can feel safe.
