    Not all products detect trojan simulator's kit. It is not an industry accepted standard, just something put out by one vendor. Many vendors did decided to include detection for it, probably because their customers asked, but many have not.

    Along with LWM's comments....you may wish to read MagnusM's comments concerning his intentions behind the release of this test trojan back in January 2003.

    I asked Kaspersky about this about 18 months ago. They said that as it's harmless, they didn't bother to include it in their database.
