Strange Blocked Events in HIPS Log


Recommended Posts

  • ESET Insiders

I have all these strange entries in my HIPS log, and I have never seen these before until recently. I'm using Smart Mode, and I have not created any custom rules. I also have never received any prompts from the HIPS despite having all these entries in the log file. Should the HIPS be silently blocking all these events? Is this something I should be concerned about? I copied a few of them below. I attached the rest of the log with this post. The forum software said there were too many to paste them all below.  I'm using Windows 7X64 Ultimate SP1.

Hello cutting_edgetech,

 

Those log entries are from the default rules and the self-defense modules of HIPS. They are normal and nothing to worry about. In fact, with the default settings in HIPS, you should not be seeing those log entries. You should only see them if you have enabled the "Log all blocked operations" for the HIPS module (Advanced setup > Computer > HIPS > Advanced setup > Log all blocked operations).

HTH...

I did enable the logging for the HIPS recently. I just didn't expect to see anything in the log file without receiving a single prompt from the HIPS. Eset's HIPS behaves more like a policy based AE to me. Thank you!

AE?

Well... of course it's policy based - why do you think can you create rules?

 

HIPS alone is more or less policy based, but "sub features" like the exploit blocker or the advanced memory scanner are maybe less policy based and are working differently.
