Add or Edit detection exclusion

Exclude detection

A valid ESET detection name should be provided. For a valid detection name, see Log files and then select Detections from the Log files drop-down menu. This is useful when a false positive sample is being detected in ESET Internet Security. Exclusions for real infiltrations are very dangerous, consider excluding only affected files / directories by clicking ... in the Path field and/or only for a temporary period of time. Exclusions apply also to Potentially unwanted applications, potentially unsafe applications and suspicious applications.

See also Path exclusion format.

DIALOG_EXCLUDE_THREAT

See the Detection exclusions example below.

Exclude hash

Excludes a file based on a specified hash (SHA1), regardless of the file type, location, name or its extension.
