LiveGrid lookups should block download of suspicious objects.

Advanced heuristics would block its execution

There's also a network scanner in ESET Smart Security and ESET Endpoint Security v6+ which can block malicious communication at the network level to increase protection even more. Also there is a mechanism in v7+ and Endpoint v6+ which is aimed at better detection and termination of malware encrypting files.
