Eset Smart Security Adware Issue


Recommended Posts

In our very very small business (2 computers) we have a lot of adware that is getting past ESET. PUA Detections are on, but these threats keep coming through.

Hello Frost. Are we talking like pop up ads? You must be careful downloading "bundled"  freeware programs (krappware is everywhere!). Always go to the originating product/program supplier, don't go to software centers like Cnet, Major Geeks ...etc (see https://forum.eset.com/topic/3938-here%E2%80%99s-what-happens-when-you-install-the-top-10-downloadcom-apps/?hl=cnet#entry23052

I use Adguard in addition to ESS. It's a free extension in Firefox and works pretty well for me.

That's my 2 cents-good luck.

Do you have detection of potentially Unwanted, Unsafe and Suspicious apps enabled ?

I ask since most users usually "complain" that ESET almost is too strict when it comes to these detections and not the other way around.

 

On the link below - do you pass all of the tests that AMTSO provides in order to make sure that ESET and other security products are set up correctly & works properly ?

Thanks, the linked pages were very informative and now I know Eset SS is doing it's job. Not that I ever doubted that it was. Now I know what all those warnings actually look like in real time. I appreciate it.
