Questions About The ESET Browser Extension


Go to solution Solved by Marcos,

Recommended Posts

Hi ESET Team, 

 

I just want to ask the below question of our client :

 

Does the Browser Privacy & Security extension scan browser add-ons/extensions?
 

My Response

ESET scans add-ons/extensions like any other files on a disk.
 
Note : if the extension is synchronized with the cloud account of the client  and keeps reappearing in the browser then the client would have to disable the sync before removing
 
I used the above response, since i saw it from ESET Forum,
 
Now our client have a clarification:
 
 
Client question "Good morning,
 
Thank you for this I have found the ‘files’ that correlate with the extensions in Firefox (My main browser) at AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox. I wanted to enquire about what criteria determines whether these are a threat or not and if you could provide a few examples of extensions that have been detected and removed by ESET."
 
 
Can you help us what would be the best response from his question
 
 
 
Cheers

Browser extensions are evaluated like any other files by detection analysts and it's up to them to decide if a file/extension is subject to detection or not. It doesn't work the way that there is a complete list of detection criteria and, if a file doesn't meet any criteria but is in fact highly suspicious or malicious, yet it would not be detected just because the specific criterion is not on the list.
