    Since the latest updates today:

    Tools -> Log files -> ESET Personal firewall log
    Detected covert channel exploit in ICMP packet
    IP address given is for google.com

    I think something has been incorrectly changed in the "ICMP protocol attack detection" process?

    After installing the V4 Beta 1, I see this now too to my Office VPN. Is this a legitimate exploit or a false positive?

    Lots of luck getting any answer from support! The same problem surfaces in v4.

    I'm experiencing the same problem. Didn't have with with 3.0. For now I need to disable ICMP attack detection .
