    I really don't know this program but as far as I know there is no better heuristic than NOD32's..

    DNAScan is very primitive against NOD32 Advanced Heuristics. DNAScan basically just reports more "exotic" packers as suspicious even if the program packed with it is perfectly clean. NOD32 never does that and always truly analyzes the file content.

    Lets get the facts out..

    CAT does *NOT* have Heuristics as most heuristics are known. Email confirmation from a head honcho at CAT basically said "Heuristics in our program essentially only exist as a checkbox. We plan to implement full heuristics at a later date."

    There you have it.

    They report *any* compressed program as suspicious, even when you use a completely harmless and common compressor like UPX.

    It's no heuristic at all, it's a packer detection

    Thats right. QuickHeal has no heuristics. It cant match NOD32 even with signature detection.
