    Whate are you doing ESET?!

    Signature updated to 3120 and EAV recognized thebat.exe as unknown virus?!?!?!
    I'm sure that exe is clean because it is paid verion. Now because of ESET I can't use my email client TheBat!!!

    I know that I can put thebat.exe in exclusion list but the QUESTION IS WHY YOU'RE FORCED ME TO DO THIS?!

    We're on the ball, the problem is being investigated and should be resolved shortly with a newer engine update. If some files have been mistakenly quarantined, you can restore them manually.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.

    The problem has been identified and fixed with update 3121. It was not actually a typical false positive caused by signatures or heuristics, hence it took us some time to figure out the cause.

    Does 3121 fix the issue with FileMaker FMPA_libFNP.dll which was picked up by 3120 this morning and broke my end users FileMaker recruitment database package :mad: ?
