ESET anti-virus update results in mass false positives

Posted on Monday, February 28 2011 @ 14:43:35 CET by


If you've installed NOD32 or Smart Security from ESET and are receiving endless streams of virus alerts there's no need to worry. It appears that a new antivirus definition update from ESET has gone awry, NGOHQ reports:
It seems that another antivirus software has gone mad. This time it's the reputable ESET aka NOD32 and Smart Security. In the past few days, users have been complaining of massive amount of false positive alerts with ESET and the latest virus definition update. It looks like ESET is flagging plenty of legitimate 3rd party software as Win32/OpenCandy adware. Even yours truly has encountered the same issue – especially with installation programs.
