Azure Code Signing message on Eset NOD32

Recommended Posts

I know my version of windows is outdated, that I no longer receive Windows security updates. However, I have been using ESET NOD 32 for many years and not had any virus issues or concerns.  I just renewed for the next year.  I get the message that "my versions does not support Azure Code Signing".  Is it safe to assume that I am still being protected, that this is not a major concern?

Refer to this Eset posting: https://support-eol.eset.com/en/trending_weol2023_10_2022.html . The important part to note is;

Without support for Azure Code Signing, it will not be possible to install or upgrade to later product versions starting from a specific version/build number.

itman- yes, i did see/read that ESET posting.  However, it seems that I was able to install/renew the ESET NOD32. 

I  am running 16.0.26.0

So is it safe to assume that I will just not be able to install a newer ESET NOD version, but that I am in fact using/running a version that is still protecting my computer.

Yes until Eset discontinues support for ver. 16.

Thanks itman for your insight!  I will assume that I am good for at least the next 12 months with the current 16. version; that ESET will not discontinue support during the renewal year

In case you will need to reinstall ESET after December 7, you will need to temporarily shift the system date backwards to make the system think that the cross-certificate issued by Entrust that was used to sign executables and modules is valid.

Marcos- I am not sure that I fully understand your guidance/suggestion/solution- meaning "shifting system date" is way past my area of expertise! But.....I renewed yesterday, so December 7 I do not think will be an issue.

You would have to set the current date/year for your Windows installation back to Dec. 6, 2023 via Windows set current date/time option. Since Windows has problems when the current date/time is not properly set, this might cause problems with Windows operation itself.

In any case, you have been warned that re-installation of your current Eset product is far from a "slam dunk" event.
