Problems with Asus AI Suite 3 after last database update (08/08/22) in Kaspersky Internet Security Posted August 14 · Edited August 14 by Pica 47 minutes ago, AragornPT said: ASUS is also guilty here. I don't like Armoury Crate and I'm forced to use Aura Sync to manage my rig. And latest Aura Sync is 2 years old. In Kaspersky's side, it's necessary to implement an exception for ASUS vulnerabilities. This behavior should be automatically configured but with user's possibility to create exceptions (for ex. atkexComSvc.exe - ASUS Com service vulnerability trigger disabled by user option) Other securities suites also trigger ASUS as a vulnerability, but the users has always the option: "ok, I know that. Shut up and let them work." ( A special note to BitDefender and Norton: they don't even recognize ASUS Service as a vulnerability, so Kaspersky is better then them, but a definitive "USER (CUSTOMER) HAVE THE LAST WORD" should be Kaspersky policy. HW manufacturer's bundled software is buggy as a general rule, odd because they're the vendors for both the harware and the software so they should know best how to design software for their hardware. Someone at the Russian language forum noticed that this vital executable is classified as a trojan, after analyzing the traces he enabled. Normally that would count as a false positive, but the user is left completely ignorant of all this. There's not a single alert or anything unusual logged, the exe is still as trusted by KIS as ever. So since what we have is most likely just a program vulnerability, I 100% agree that Kaspersky shouldn't take an aggressive stance toward this file. They can notify the end user about its risky nature, but it should never be blocked without the users consent. Even if installing a new version of AiSuite3 or Armory Crate fixes this issue, how does that help those who have atkexComSvc.exe normally running in their systems but without those two other programs? I've looked into it but it's still unclear what all the places this exe comes from are and what it does, I know for certain I've never had AiSuite or the others installed. Some of these ASUS drivers such as AsIO.sys (that's usually found on newer computers with ASUS mobos) might be installed from the board firmware, some may come from driver CDs. It's difficult to keep track of these files and what should be safe to disable should an AV flag them as risky. My version of this exe is old, and there's no way to get a newer version of it without installing ASUS programs that I don't want. The installers could be unpacked, but that's probably more trouble than it's worth.
