Ekrn sent for analysis?

is this legit? and is there a way to find out what triggered the file being sent? It isn't very comforting to see Eset checking its own kernel.

It's legit but we don't know why it was sent. Maybe the signature could not be verified for whatever reason.

What's interesting is it appears ekrn.exe was submitted multiple times at different intervals on 7/29.

If something like this happens again and is persistent, it might be indicative of file corruption issues; possibly HDD related.

I was doing a scan with hitman pro at the time. And it sent ekrn to their server too. So I’m not sure it that may have triggered it. And yes I did two scans with HMP. So it’s likely what happened.
