Eset endpoint security for windows and WSL 2.0 memory space

Recommended Posts

So, from my understanding of the way WSL (Windows subsystem for linux) works is that both windows and the linux distro run on hyper-v on the machine that it was installed on as separate, but co-equal kernels.  If Eset Endpoint security for windows is installed, can it scan the memory space for threats in the WSL 2.0 memory space without having to install the linux client?

My concern on this is installing Kali Linux is fully supported under WSL 2.0 and I am concerned that it could be used as an attack platform outside the reach of Eset endpoint security.
