[KB6512] ESET products version 6.9 system extension blocked in macOS 10.13 – 10.15

Issue

A program tried to load new system extensions signed by "ESET, spol. s.r.o.", which will be incompatible with a future version of macOS. If you want to enable these extensions, open Security & Privacy System Preferences.

Multiple notifications

Occasionally, macOS will display multiple System Extension Blocked notification windows. In these cases, System extensions need to be allowed when only one System Extension Blocked notification was displayed.

In macOS 11 (Big Sur), kernel extensions will no longer be supported in their current form.
In ESET we are working on a solution that will be available before the release of macOS 11.

Currently, follow the Solution section below to allow the kernel extension.

macOS High Sierra (10.13) and later contains a security feature that requires user approval before loading new third-party kernel extensions.

  • If you have installed the ESET product before upgrading your macOS to version 10.13, the kernel extensions are allowed automatically, and there is no action needed from the user.
  • When installing the ESET product on 10.13 or later, you need to allow the ESET kernel extensions manually. Physical access to the client machine is required—when accessing remotely, the Allow button is disabled.

See the Apple documentation on SIP


Solution

Remotely approve the kernel extension

To approve the kernel extension loading remotely, we recommend that you follow Apple's support guideline or Apple's documentation.

    Allow button is disabled

    In some cases, the Allow button might be disabled. Possible reasons for this include:

    • Physical access to the computer is required to allow the kernel extensions. The Allow button will be disabled if you are remotely accessing the computer.
    • The remote connection is open or was recently open on your computer. We recommend that you restart your computer to restore access to the Allow button.
    • You are using a third-party application to emulate a mouse or trackpad (such as MagicPrefs, Synergy, BetterTouchTool... ). You need to close or uninstall this application to restore access to the Allow button.
