Network Inspector False Threat

Recommended Posts

I am currently using ESET Smart Security Premium I ran network inspector scan on my trusted home network. ESET initially advised me that it had detected a threat (open port 443) with my modem/router. I then disabled my VPN service (Surfshark) and re-ran the scan. ESET found no issues.

Is this therefore just a false threat detection of an open port, which is as the result of using VPN or is my VPN service leaving a port open and therefore vulnerable to be exploited?

Please carry on as follows:

  1. Enable advanced logging under Help and support -> Technical support
  2. Reproduce the detection
  3. Stop logging
  4. Collect logs with ESET Log Collector
  5. Open a support ticket and attach the logs, if not too big.

Of course when trying to reproduce again, all seems fine. Thanks for your assistance, should it re-occur I will follow the steps above. Please close thread.
