    Is /v4.0.314.0 Final/ a scam or real?

    plus http://www.eset.eu/download/release-candidate has removed its RC download.
    but i got no message about this final version from eset's mailing list.
    odd:rolleyes: ...

    ~Unofficial links removed.~

    Bensec,

    Let's wait for ESET to announce their products. It is much safer to download from official ESET sites than second party hosting sites.

    I think the fact that the links are to Rapidshare says it all!

    We will see soon. Even it's unofficial, it's about time for ESET to release a new version.

    yep I fully understand. but news spread fast. I have saw this post in the eset Chinese official forum. and the thread holder says its from another popular native online community.
    Just wondering if this is true.
    if the shared files are shipped with rouge ware, well, i cant imagine.:mad:

    The Digital Signature on that thing reads 6 Feb and we're in the 2nd of March, if it were to be true that it did go final, the digital signature would of read 2nd of march.

    Therefore its a fake.

    I dl'd the "final" version, inserted my User/PW to get it, installed right on top of the beta, no problems. But it is still showing a expiration date of 3/17/09 instead of the date my license expires in 2010. Is version 314 the final or another beta version? o_O

    You need to put your username and password into ESS also. Since you installed over the beta, it is still using the beta login for updates.

    Well DUH! Thought by inserting it on the dl page would take care of it. After putting it in the program and updating, TA-DAH! Thanks.

    This cannot be true. They would not make this a final when so many people cannot use it because they cannot stay connected to the internet. If true bad move on Esets part.

    Well, this didn't last long. Thought maybe they were giving future dates for those who beta tested. This morning I boot up and it now reads 3/18/2009.

    I assume it will work this time if I enter my paid for username/pwd (choked on this earlier in the beta)? And only finish the license time from version 3?

    OK its real now.

    Goodnews:
    the installer from eset official site has been updated today. the installer's digital signature is signed on March 3rd ,which used to be Feb 6 two days ago. ;)

    Badnews:
    It seems that there isnt much change in this new installer. the only changed files ,compared to the old Final intaller(digitally signed on Feb6), are :
    APPDATADIR\Updfiles\em000_32_l0.nup
    APPDATADIR\Updfiles\em006_32_l0.nup
    APPDATADIR\Updfiles\em006_32_l1.nup
    APPDATADIR\Updfiles\em006_32_l2.nup
    are they signatures ?hope they can solve the RC issues like SSL ... asap.:D
