Exploit Blocker

Exploit Blocker is designed to fortify commonly exploited application types such as web browsers, PDF readers, email clients and Microsoft 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 immediately stops the process and records and sends threat data to the ESET LiveGrid® 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 without a pre-configured remedy).
