Unsolved Antivirus detection


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

today my ESET Endpoint Antivirus with version 10.0.2034.0 detected a potentially unwanted application with following message:


\\Uefi Partition = UEFI = uefi:\\Volume 9\Firmware Volume Image {1303221F-4197-B792-2466-F49E45233681}\Volume 1\efiinstnats - eine Variante von EFI/CompuTrace.A potenziell unsichere Anwendung - Säubern nicht möglich

CompuTrace seems to be some kind of protection again theft, that could not be turned off in a way ESET never detects it again. 

Google leads me to a ESET KB article https://support.eset.com/en/kb6567-you-receive-an-eset-uefi-detection to create a detection exclusion. 

But how do I know, whether that message is really unproblematc? Couldn't it be real malware?

It's not malware but PUA detection (https://support.eset.com/en/kb2629). Since flashing the UEFI firmware would likely not remove the application, the only thing you can do is silence the detection by creating a detection exclusion as per the KB you cited.
