Brute-force exclusions can be used to suppress Brute-force detection for specific criteria. These exclusions are created from ESET PROTECT based on Brute-force detection.


  • Detection – Type of detection.
  • Application – Select the file path of an excepted application by clicking ... (for example C:\Program Files\Firefox\Firefox.exe). Do NOT enter the name of the application.
  • Remote IP – A list of remote IPv4 or IPv6 address/ranges/subnets. Multiple addresses must be separated by a comma.

Managing Exclusions

The exclusions will be displayed if an administrator creates Brute-force exclusions in ESET PROTECT Web Console. Exclusions can contain allowing rules only and are evaluated before IDS rules.
