    Good day.

    What this is a possible oversight in securing settings for the on-demand scan in NOD32 Antivirus RC1.

    If one opens the gui and go to Computer scan -> Custom scan, one would see the setup button, which opens the settings for the currently selected profile. Here's the problem: if you password protect your settings, all will be protected (which I hope so :) ) except the on-demand scan settings in Custom scan. To make matters worse, changes to the settings is saved even if one sets password protection.

    If this behaviour is intended, I hope that an additional setting will be included to toggle whether access to on-demand settings thru the Custom scan is password-protected or atleast changes are not saved (please don't make me beg for this ;) ).

    Regards.

    What? Still no replies? Don't tell me no one recognizes the potential problem with this, especially by ESET.
