Eset on Ubuntu 14.04 and Xubuntu 14.04


Recommended Posts

This problem occurs on two fresh installs of Xubuntu 14.04 and two installs of Ubuntu 14.04 (one fresh and one upgrade from 13.10) installation file used "eset_nod32av_64bit_en.linux" Version: 4.0.81.0

Run file, asks for "Run as Root" password. Enter password and click ok. Error message "su: Authentication failure"
Run file with sudo command in terminal and installer starts normally. install with defaults and enable detection of potentially unwanted programs. Restart pc.
Activate with username or Password only will return invalid username/password using a valid username password, trying to activate a trial version after entering information does not appear to do anything.

Hello guys,

 

Do you have enabled root account? This issue is probably caused because you don’t have set root account. It is not enabled in Ubuntu by default.

 

I recommend to run terminal. In terminal enter command sudo passwd root , you will be requested to enter root password. Please choose root password wisely and don’t forget it.

 

Than run installer again, when request for authentication appears enter password you choose for root account.

 

You can find more information here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo

It seems installing gksu from Ubuntu Software Center works as well. If you enable root account, input root password, and if you install gksu, input user password. gksu is not installed into Ubuntu14.04 by default.

Eset Nod32 antivirus for linux was not upgraded for a long time, it is necessary to upgrade (v5 launch) and to add firewall, antispam etc. for better protection.

One can't compare this product to ESET Smart Security, or ESET Cyber Security Pro for OS X wich are "security suites" having additional features like Firewalls.

 

ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Linux is not a "suite" product, the equivalent for the Windows platform is ESET NOD32 Antivirus wich also does not have a firewall, antispam etc...customers may chose to use the Win OS firewall with it or some other 3'rd party firewall. Same with ESET Cyber Security.

Yes, may be firewall, antispam, etc. it is not strictly necessary but version need to be upgraded to reinforce security.

Upgrade?

I'm not sure, but I assume this product get module updates once in a while just like the Win version for example.

Upgrading doesn't necessary mean its security is getting better.

What do you think needs to be reinforced by this upgrade you are speaking of for security purposes?

I was referred to the actual security features or little new features and maybe some Graphical improvements.
