    Nod32 at its best...

    Before a virus definition was added to Nod32’s database, Bagle.AS was identified as "unknown NewHeur_PE virus". A definition has now been added.

    You can track the spread of Win32/Bagle.AS on www.virus-radar.com

    More information will be published on www.nod32.ch soon.

    Cheers :D

    Thanks for posting this. It is good to be reminded occasionally in this forum of how effective NOD32 is, as most of the posts - for obvious reasons in a suppport forum - relate to problems, defects, what NOD32 apparently didn't detect, what score NOD32 achieved in some virtual laboratory test etc.

    As I recall many times, heuristic is very very important for proactive protection. Thanks for all Eset to do a product that has a good heuristic and not only a AV that is fully based on databases/signatures.

    Yep, NOD32 saved my but today. I saw an email when I was checking my work email from home that looked like it was from someone I hadn't heard from in a long time. Unfortunately I opened it, due to extreme curiousity, even though I knew it looked suspicisous. Luckily NOD 32 came to the rescue: Virus Log - Win32/Bagle.AU worm - connection terminated! Hopefully I learned my lesson.
