Live Grid setup

By default, ESET Cyber Security is configured to submit suspicious files to the ESET Threat Lab for detailed analysis. If you do not want to submit these files automatically, deselect Submit files.

If you find a suspicious file, you can submit it to the ESET Threat Lab for analysis by clicking Tools > Submit sample for analysis from the main program window. If an application is malicious, its detection is added to an upcoming product update. The following settings are available:

Submit anonymous statistics – The ESET Live Grid Early Warning System collects anonymous information about your computer related to newly detected threats. This information includes the name of the infiltration, the date and time it was detected, the ESET security product version, your operating system version, and the location setting. These statistics are typically delivered to ESET servers once or twice daily.

Exclusion Filter – This option enables you to exclude certain file types from submission. For example, it may be useful to exclude files that may carry confidential information, such as documents or spreadsheets. The most common file types are excluded by default (for example, .doc and .rtf.). You can add file types to the list of excluded files.

Contact Email (optional) – Your email address is used if more information is required for analysis. Note that you will not receive a response from ESET unless more information is needed.
