Exploit Blocker

Exploit Blocker is designed to fortify commonly exploited application types such as web browsers, PDF readers, email clients and MS Office components. It works by monitoring the behavior of processes for suspicious activity that might indicate an exploit.

When Exploit Blocker identifies a  suspicious process, it can stop the process immediately and record data about the threat, which is then sent to the ThreatSense cloud system. This data is processed by the ESET Research Lab and used to better protect all users from unknown threats and zero-day attacks (newly released malware for which there is no pre-configured remedy).
