Why Immunet Downloads .exe And .tmp Files?

Recommended Posts

I read about Immunet Cloud AV tool on Kreb's blog.


Immunet says it can very well work with another AV side-by-side.


When I enabled verbose notification in Settings, I could see pop-up flashing every now and than that a trusted file has been downloaded to a folder.


Sometimes, ESET SmartSecurity is alerting that a file is a potentially dangerous application.


I want to know why Immunet is downloading these files. Are these signatures?


But Immunet documentation says it is a Cloud scanning tool.

Under normal circumstances the Verbose Tray Notification feature should remain turned "OFF" unless told by an Immunet support person to use it. This feature is for troubleshooting and de-bugging purposes only. That's what's also creating all the temp files that ESET is alerting you to. Of course these files are not malicious but please turn the VTN feature off as it's not needed at this time, unless you actually like getting all those pop-ups. It's your choice I guess.

Cheers, Ritchie...

What you'll have to do is add an exclusion for Immunet's Program Files folder with ESET. This will eliminate ESET from flagging any of Immunet's files as suspicious or malicious. Here's a link to ESET support that outlines how to add an exclusion. http://support.eset.com/kb2769/?locale=en_US&viewlocale=en_US

It's also a great idea to add an exclusion with Immunet for ESET's Program Files folder too.

Best wishes, Ritchie...
