nod32 antivirus 4.0.81.0 /tmp/esets.sock unavailable, freezes


Recommended Posts

On a fresh install of nod32 antivirus 4.0.81.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, I first set Apparmor to "complain" mode for all profiles and then went through the instructions in the ESET KB article 3723 to create an eset.service file under /lib/systemd/system and start service using systemctl:

 

hxxp://support.eset.com/kb3723/?locale=en_US

 

However, now I'm seeing multiple version update messages from esets_gui, and syslog is filled with messages from esets_gui, esets_daemon, systemd, and others:

 

warning: Cannot read from socket: Resource temporarily unavailable

error: Cannot get setup from daemon: Daemon closed connection

 

(I also notice that /opt/eset/esets/lib/esets_mac is running in its own PID. Should that be?)

 

...along with multiple network freezes.

 

Other info from the NOD32 about dialog:

 

Module   Version

Update   1062

AV and Antispyware scanner   1482

Virus sig db   13389

archive supp   1248

adv heuristics   1168

cleaner   1120

 

System info:

Linux 4.4.0-21-generic (64-bit) #37-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 18 18:33:37 UTC 2016

Intel® Core i7-5600U CPU

 

Any way to correct permissions, or maybe install a development build to correct the freeze issues?

This or quite similar behavior encountered last few days after had applied updates (security, recommended updates) to OS Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS.

Plenty of "socket read" errors in syslog. OS (a virt. machine) poorly responsible. Got rid of these problems by uninstalling NOD32 for Linux.

Since that removal no AV solution installed till now.

Dear friend,

I've installed NOD32 for linux too and it's hell on my server too... they didn't reply to my ticket (sent thru the app) and I'm not sure why they set this forum cause they don't replay at all.

So I guess the best way to have a fully functionnal Ubuntu is to remove this ...

Mixing two or more conflicting security models on one system is a recipe for disaster. You either need AppArmor or NOD32, not both.

 

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AppArmor#Disable_AppArmor_framework

 

Also see this post, which explains why you need to change NOD32's default configuration, as it's too pervasive.

 

My advice is that if you're running a purely Linux environment, then you should use one of the native Linux security models, not an antivirus product. The main point of running AV on Linux is as a gateway to insecure systems like Windows, or as a means of recovering them, not as an alternative to Linux security, which is already more advanced than any AV out there. Otherwise, if you have only Windows, or Linux and Windows, use antivirus.

hi,

https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/how-to-run-eset-nod32-for-linux-in-ubuntu-mate-16-04-or-16-10/9733/13

So here is a step by step instruction how I got it to work on any machine I have tried.

  1. Download from ESET
  2. Mark it as "Executable"
  3. Install the library libc6 32bit, with sudo apt install libc6:i386
    It is critical to use it like this with : , not like described here hxxp://support.eset.com/kb5827/2 with - between libc6 and i386. Installing it with - causes the system to freeze.
  4. Double click the downloaded file and install it. Restart and activate.
  5. To start it from the Systray-Icon, just click on the icon. To start it from the menu, change the Exec line in /usr/share/applications/eset-esets_gui.desktop to Exec=/opt/eset/esets/lib/esets_clean.sh

 

now it's working normaly without errors and freezes!

 

Best regards
