Yes this is nice from ESET. Like KSN, ESET's LiveGrid can be used too without agreeing to submit. But LiveGrid is no way as good as KSN.Sorry I missed this quote:
I think kudos goes to ESET for actually having a UI for communicating what they are uploading! Norton also has "File Insight" log events that roughly state that it uploaded something because you executed a download, for example, without a ton more detail than that.
Kaspersky's and F-Secure's are both really hush -- I don't see ANY log entries explaining that they are sending things back to the cloud.
Norton is the king of logs. Never seen a product with so much logs about everything it does which is great even though some logs are not easy to understand.
Hmm right, if more products provided logs of files it submits would be better. But some products are even harsher. If I remember correctly, Bitdefender doesn't even have an option to opt out of their cloud submission.
