CSP kills web browsing (esets_proxy)


Recommended Posts

for days i've had a problem where i can only browse the web (in any browser) for about 10 minutes before i start getting "no connection" errors (on every browser and every website except Facebook and Google sites).  i spent hours and hours troubleshooting, trying a million different things, thinking it may have been my ISP, my router, etc.  of course i initially tried "turning off" all ESET modules just to make sure, but this made no difference.  

 

i have two macs, an imac and a macbook pro.  just for the heck of it, i uninstalled Eset CSP from my macbook and viola, no more problems.  so i started digging more.  i saw a couple similar topics in the CS forum here, so again, just out of curiosity, on my imac i tried manually killing the esets_proxy process.  viola, browsing back.  again, want to be clear - un-ticking the option in the GUI made no difference, i had to kill the process manually.

 

not sure what's going on with this, but thought you should know in case anyone else is having a similar problem.  i can only assume that eset is aware and hopefully fixing this soon.

Tomas has devs working on the issue after i sent them detailed logs.  i will of course post their findings here.

 

i will add that since i updated OS to 10.11.2, i haven't yet experienced the issue.  not sure what that's about.

same problem for me as described by alyssafriesen

 

ESET: 6.1.16.1 

maxos: 10.11.1

 

I kill the process > webbrowsing (any browser) works fine; but process comes back after some time.

 

unticking Web-security makes no difference.

 

any advise or workaround?

I am seeing this problem as well, currently running 6.1.16 on OSX 10.11.3

Although the same issue, the version you both mentioned is for the Endpoint variant, not the Home user Cyber Security versions in this topic.

 

However, @Marcos made this post in the relevant topic for Endpoints about this (topic is here: https://forum.eset.com/topic/5992-eset-endpoint-av-for-osx-61120-web-access-protection-severely-impacts-browsing/?p=40519)

 

A new service release should be available soon. We are still in the process of fixing bugs and subsequent re-testing by the QA department. For users with home version, we've prepared a fixed esets_proxy, however, it can only be used with ECS 6.0.12.
