The antivirus sent fake virus alerts
ESET NOD32 is one of the most popular antivirus solutions on the market but its popularity might be decreased by the recent fake alerts sent to the users. The parent company ESET confirmed the problems with its security product and said they were quickly fixed but didn’t mention a thing about the affected consumers.
However, the glitch was somehow useful for the affected users because it seems like the banners were trying to execute actions in the background without notifying the user of the computer. The flaw made NOD32 block this banner and protect users from the annoying ads. The real problem was that the antivirus solution incorrectly flagged the banners as a dangerous Trojan horse that could harm users’ computers.
