today i noticed that after turning off/on the "enable ssl protocol filtering" option, the newly created certificate has a date of 29/6 instead of 10/7, as the current is the 10th of July.

29/6 was the date that i installed the program from scratch after removing it with the safe mode removal tool. shouldn't the AV create a certificate with the current date? did this behavior change in the latest update? ESSP 15.2.11.0

I had uninstalled Eset on 7/5 and re-installed on the same date using an off-line download of ESSP ver. 15.2.11.0.

I just checked in Eset GUI what date is shown for Eset cert.. It is 7/5.

Next, I opened certmgr.msc. Then checked Eset cert. date for Eset cert. in Trusted Roots store. The Eset cert. date there is also 7/5.

I repeated what you did:

after turning off/on the "enable ssl protocol filtering" option

Again, Eset GUI Eset cert. display shows a date of 7/5.

Using certmgr.msc, check if Eset cert. in Trusted Roots store shows a date of 6/29. It is possible that when you reinstalled Eset, the Eset cert. from the prior Eset installation was not replaced for some unknown reason.

It's an expected behavior. The ESET root CA is not deleted when you disable SSL filtering, the root CA certificate is kept in c:\ProgramData\ESET\ESET Security\protoscanRootCert.crt.

after removing the program through the control panel and using the removal tool to clean any leftovers, when i reinstalled it it created a certificate with the current date.

thanks Marcos.
