Eset Flags up Warning

  buteman 24 Nov 11

Eset Internet Security came up with a warning box.

Detected Covert channel Exploit in ICMP Packet. Remote Ip Address

When I open Eset nothing has been quarantines or anything like that it does not even mention it.

Would it be most likely the Eset Firewall stopping a program from entering.Or could it be more sinister.

gengiscant I googled for that and there was nothing for me to look at.

Obviously I must have worded it wrong.

I will have a good look through that.Thanks

It happened to me when I first Googled, but I tend to find that as fewer words as possible gets better results? In this case it was *Exploit in ICMP Packet. * that better results came up.

One more question if you can help.I can stop it from running again.But what is the possibility that it is something needed.

If I stop it and find out that I need it I take it it is just a matter of enabling it again.

Firewalls I could never understand them and how to use them properly.

Hi I found out it is just when I open my Poker Stars program that I get those warnings from Eset.

So going to ignore them I think. Whatever Eset is stopping does not prevent Poker Stars from working.

Any thoughts on this before I close the thread.

Reading through the links I posted I think you can safely ignore these warnings from Eset on this occasion.
