    Send the file to Eset at sample@eset.com :)

    Do keep in mind that the file will have to be compressed into a password protected zip file (with the password as "infected").

    How long will it last, until submited samples will get included into nod's virus signatures?

    I've send two days ago a sample of an trojan, which at this date even wasn't recognized by kaspersky. Now Kaspersky detects it as Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Vidlo.m. Nod32 still says its clean.

    The samples was send by the build in function in Nod 2.5.

    Any .exe file as an email attachment is likely to be a worm/trojan/virus so automatically is suspect and should never be run

    NOD will I am sure include detection as soon as possible, but all these take time to analyse and include dertections.

    It is a downloader according to you post so they need to run it, see what it downloads and run those and see what they download, etc etc until they get a full package and include detections for the whole lot

    I am sure you would rather they detect and fix the complete problem rather than just one part of it and miss the rest by only partially analysing the sample and causing more problems in the long run

    Nod are reasoably quick and getting quicker at detecting and including new threats, especially when compared to some other AV's & Anti malware applications that still only update weekly or even longer regarless of the threats

    Unfortuately one of the things that does slow down is having to spend a lot of time replying to posts like this rather than actually examining the files and building detections.

    Now don't get me wrong, I am NOT saying don't post, but give them a chance and many downloaders etc or attachments that need user intervention to do their naughty deeds will be a lower priority for dealing with than something that will automatically infect a computer. That is just real lfe in the same way a Doctor will treat your worse injuries, like bleeding or breathing problemsin a accident & prevent you getting worse before he treats or deals with your broken leg or arm

    Yes, you are right.
    These kind of trojans are very obvious and i don't need any antivirus to detect these. But it would be nice, as i am a new customer and it was the first virus/trojan i got since i had nod installed :)
