Eset Antivirus Exposes Mac Users to Remote Hacking
Eset Puts Mac Users at risk for Man In The Middle (MITM) Attack
More and more security risks each day. Windows systems aren’t the only ones under attack. Look at this exploit of someone else’s software that could be on your computer. Make sure you keep up to date with the latest security patches for your system and software. Not sure why some like to put updates off till it’s too late. Make sure you back up data regularly. Always have a data recovery plan. Don’t have one? I suggest you put a protocol in place. You can never be too paranoid.
“Vulnerable versions of ESET Endpoint Antivirus 6 are statically linked with an outdated XML parsing library and do not perform proper server authentication, allowing for remote unauthenticated attackers to perform arbitrary code execution as root on vulnerable clients.”
