    It happens - Norton also detected Panda's definitions file as a virus once and vice versa.

    but nod23 heuristics system is better than norton , it is smart and powerfull

    norton and nod32 are different
    we cant say norotn do so nod32 ok if do the same
    all of them is unique

    there is a BIG problem , it need fast fix
    no excuse

    What? Your logic doesn't make sense at all really. Every AV has false-positives regardless of how "bad" or how "good" the definitions or heuristics are. Detection isn't an exact science.

    Also, since this is in Norton 2006 Beta, the file is actually new, and "unknown." (Off-topic: you actually have both installed at the same time?)

    Well, I agree that false positives do happen, but it should still be fixed (or at least looked at). Submit the file to Eset through the Quarantine function so that they can fix it.

    It's been submitted by 2 people out of several milion clients so far. The file is runtime packed with some strange packer - Daddy Cool will look into it later on today.

    Spot on Eset! Malware like this should be detected.

    I submitted this info on Malware Research almost week ago. Mike from ESET already noticed it back then so i'm sure they(he) fixed it asap. And from what i have tested right now the false positive is no longer there. Don't know for how long,but right now it's fixed...
