    Is ESET working to protect us from the MS "DLL" security issue?

    Did not Microsoft release a security fix for that yesterday? Or were those something else?

    I don't think ESET can do much for this issue. It looks like it is up to the vendor of each product with the issue to fix it. So far ESET does not show up on the list of affected software. And there are Antivirus vendors that are on that list, so it could be worse. And the Microsoft fix doesn't look like much of a fix. If I understand correctly, it adds a registry key that lets you manually select the dll behavior per app by manually editing the registry. If I am not willing to do that, the average user isn't going to. o_O
