    I received a lower right screen popup in light blue/green? from Eset. I'll call it a general interest notification as I don't have a clue to it's purpose. Eset threat encyclopedia in the Help gives me no information.

    I'm on line but only doing a quiet scroll of a text message when a Eset popup(internet Security) notifies me that a new device was added/connected. I clicked more info on that popup, and it gives me a company Sagemcom Broadband, with the next line an IP address, and the last line a MAC address. This doesn't seem to be logged in the Eset log file system, so I assume Eset sees it as benign.

    I have Bell Fibe as standard for everything in this house, including internet BELL(NNN) WiFi, with black boxes for whatever use nailed to the cement wall behind me(My PC is in the basement). So I'm surprised that this company needs to store anything at all of a business nature on my PC. Usually these are hard wired at Fibe install and independent of the software they provide. Or, I could be wrong and Eset is simply notifying me of the traffic it sees.

    An improvement to Eset would be a "user action" line on the pop up to set the non computer literate to alleviate the their concerns. It could say what Eset action was taken, ie: logged etc,

    I'm running Win7 64 and the latest Internet Security.

    Thanks for the help.

    First, you should have posted this comment in the Eset subsection in the Antivirus section of the forum. You should also post this comment on the Eset forum: https://forum.eset.com/ .

    It appears the popup you are receiving is a result of having the "Notify me about newly discovered network devices" option enabled in Basic subsection of the Firewall settings in the Eset GUI. This option is enabled by default.

    As far as this goes:
    Eset alerts will indicate what action was taken in the form of "blocked" or "allowed."

    As far as controlling the level of detail shown in the log files, see the below screen shot. This will control at the highest level what activity is logged and by default is set to "Informative." It can be set to "Diagnostic" will provide the most verbose logging activity and is not recommended for general use since your log files will rapidly fill up with event detail. Finally, finer granularity can be had in event log activity by specification of logging level within rule settings in the Firewall and HIPS sections for example. These settings override the prior Tools section global event logging setting.

    May I ask again a question about a site where Eset puts up a warning about https ?
    Before I do that, just a little bit more info:
    It's about a city in The Netherlands, The Hague, on which during WWII by mistake bombs were dropped (just only a few kilometers further they may have had destroyed V2-installations); see Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombing_of_the_Bezuidenhout ).
    The site involved is https://www.bb45.nl/
    I have checked the site at SSL Checker / SSLShopper https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=https://www.bb45.nl/ but I don't fully understand what it is actually saying there. So, what and why is wrong?
    Thanks in advance.

    According to Kaspersky that site uses self-signed certificate.Maybe ESET checks that also.

    Thanks. According to SSL Checker / SSLShopper there is more wrong at that site, as far as I understand it. Sigh ...

    Current update from ESET Administration on their forum (as of one hour ago):

    Today v12.1.31 has been released but since it's a staggered release, not all users will receive it immediately. It may take some time until the product updates to the latest version automatically.
    A release announcement will be posted later today after an official release.

    There is now a Eset Proxy Gui. Haven't seen that before.

    It was made primarily to save memory since the whole gui is not needed most of the time.

    The following is speculation on my part until Eset publicly releases further details; if ever. They tend to be a bit "tight lipped" when it comes to the internal workings of their protection processes.

    It appears two types of alerts will be generated from Deep Behavioral Inspection. The first type will be when one of Eset's behavioral signatures have been triggered and the process characteristics are of suspicious nature; e.g. a PE without a .exe extension, etc.. These factors will provide Eset enough confidence to outright block execution and display the following alert:

    Eset_Suspicious.png

    The second type of alert which I don't have an example of is when nothing specifically malicious has been identified with the process activity but it is being executed in a fashion known to be associated with malware usage. For example, a script being run from a shell process or as a child process. I believe the user will have an option in this case to allow or block the activity with the recommended action being to block unless the initiating process is known to be legit activity.

    In addition to what @itman posted, I think Deep Behavioral Inspection will use some rules from DNA detection to spot malicious behavior; it seems to be a evolution of what Advanced Memory Scanner can do.
