JS/SecurityDisabler.A.Gen potentially unwanted application


Recommended Posts

Dear All,

 

I have one of our web-devs trying to use Selenium standalone server and when launching the java application through Eclipse ESET A/V blocks it with the following message:

It looks like its blocking the attempt of Firefox browser been launch which incidentally its version 22.

Please submit prefs-1.js to ESET as per the instruction here and with a link to this topic enclosed. Although it's unlikely to be false positive, we'd like to check it out to make sure.

Was there any fix for this as I've hit the same issue? The only way round I've found is to disable unwanted application checking which I'd rather not do.

 

Thanks

All prefs*.js files that we've received and analyzed had Firefox security features disabled. Please submit your files to ESET as per the instructions here if you think that your files are safe and are detected erroneously. Note that these files are not detected as malware but as PUA (potentially unwanted applications) which is an optional detection.

In addition to what Marcos stated, to help .....

 

Optional, meaning..... you and any other user / person can turn off or disable that feature, and it will be allowed after the fact.

Just so were all clear :)
