Many of the biggest virus threats come from local sources.
Files and other data from users are transferred by CD, USB devices and networks; they are the number one infection source for the Maritime industry.
I have taken over the administration of a Windows Server 2008 64bit installation.
The server has ESET NOD32 Antivirus Business Edition v4.2 installed.
Even worse, their name and products will be scratched. Finally today an ESET employee made a short statement on their support forum, almost 1 month after the first reports were produced: “An issue with ESET’s V4 software and Service Pack 2 for Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 2008 has been identified and the developers are working on a solution for it.
Currently, I do not have any information about when it will be available or what form it will take, but as soon as more information is available it will be provided.” Again, 1 month after the first reports were produced.
Embarrassing: the total lack of feedback from ESET regarding the issue.
Like I today already wrote on DSLReports, looking at all the threads and posts in their own support forums regarding the severe Service Pack 2 related problems, like e.g.system crashes, BSODs aso, and the fact that (apparently) ESET refuse to communicate with their PAYING customers about the SP2 related occurances, it is evident that ESET will lose customers.
