MSIL/Microsoft.Bing.D - Potentially unwanted application found


Recommended Posts

Starting my PC this morning and received this notification.  This appears to be an actual Microsoft file?  Is this a false detection or an actual problem?

You can create a detection exclusion for the Microsoft Bing application.

Hello Dan,

I started rec'ing this notification from multiple workstations in my environment starting "Patch Tuesday" this week.  ESET appears to be deleting the installer, so, I've been ignoring it for the past two days; too swamped with other more important things.

Whether or not it's a false positive  seems to be a matter of perspective.  I'm not in favor of Microsoft's "update" philosophy so I consider these notices and ESET's blocking / deleting the install as confirmation that ESET is doing what I expect it to do.

Is this still the solution? I'm not very happy to exclude such an application like a browser that is exposed to the internet? Isn't it a problem from eset with copilot from bing? Cannot Eset update the detection-routine to work properly?

There is no problem with ESET, the problem is that Microsoft distributes the PUA with Edge updates. All you can do is either disabling detection of potentially unwanted applications (optional detection) or create a detection exclusion since it's probably impossible to make Microsoft not to distribute the PUA to you.

For me, it IS a problem with ESET, when ESET shows a false positive with die Microsoft Edge, which is on almost every Windows-PC around the world.

But it's not a false positive. MSIL/Microsoft.Bing is a correct detection / classification for an application that pushes users into changing the default search engine. Such applications meet the definition of potentially unwanted applications: https://support.eset.com/en/kb2629.
