Antivirus Suites Block DSEO
Posted by newsbot on September 09th 2009

It has come to our attention that several Antivirussuites have listed our Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider (DSEO) asa dangerous file. We originally created DSEO to solve the seriousdriver signature enforcement problem that appeared after Microsoftremoved the permanent command line switch that disables driversignature enforcement in Windows Vista SP1 and Windows 7. Sadly, theonly way around this is to press F8 upon startup and choose “DisableDriver Signature Enforcement”, which is temporary and unacceptable.Microsoft has left users without an option to disable the featurepermanently.Driver signature enforcement is indeed a good idea, but it is performedbadly. It requires all drivers and system files to be digitally signedwith a certificate or they won’t run. The problem with signing yourfiles is the fact that the certificate costs thousands of dollars. Ofcourse, that money is not a concern for corporations such as Adobe, butfor the majority of developers, which are freeware/open sourcedevelopers that make no profit, this is simply unforgivable.
