Anyone knows what they mean by improving the HIPS ; is it improvements out of the box/premade rules, or did they increase it’s “tweaking potential “ :
“Similarly, ESET is continually working to improve behavioral detection, with a focus on extending protection across system components that are typically abused by malware. To this end, the Host-Based Intrusion Prevention System, which utilizes advanced behavioral analysis to protect your system from malware and unwanted activity, has also been bolstered with further detection methods. This includes improved detection of ransomware and other malware using suspicious encryption and decryption API calls.”

A crucial upgrade was made in the Advanced Machine Learning module, which now has better detection while retaining a tiny footprint. The improvements in the data selection and algorithm components will lead to increased detection of threats, including those transmitted via email. Synchronous Advanced Machine Learning in the Cloud, which runs more heavyweight detection models on cloud platforms, also brings considerable improvements for the detection of new malware.

The update also provides users with new protection in the form of the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and System Registry Scanner, which are capable of detecting malicious uses of the WMI and the system registry.

via What’s new in the latest version of ESET’s home Windows offering?

And no WMI provider crash seen in the Reliability Monitor? Thank you.
I wasn't aware of this. I see there are WMI crash on reliability monitor but this only happens if you scan WMI. ESET don't scan it by default so nothing serious also it's not creating any problem in the system. WMI is consistent. I'll see if there's anything on the ESET forum related to this. Otherwise I'll report it there that crash still happens with the latest version.
