    What company is the fastest one in adding definitions?

    Lets say that you discovered not detected piece of malware, after submision how long did you wait for detection?

    this is the order for me: Dr.Web, Kaspersky and AntiVir...all adding them in 48H and sending you an answer with the result of sample analyse in 24H. :) Hope NOD32 will have this response some day....

    Seems to me the safest way is to have an antivirus that has good heuristics and a fast response.That way, if heuristics dont catch it it isnt long before it is covered.

    From my personal experience, I think Fortinet is also good at response time.

    We have FortiGate antivirus firewall at our corporate network perimeter, FortiGate can effectively catch most of malware (I'd say 99%+) that try to get through our network and then caught by eTrust Antivirus at clients/servers. As far as I've seen, we've always received virus signatures in time so FortiGate can stop all fast-spreading malware (e.g. mass-mailing worms) by its signatures without any problems, if not, we still have other layer defence.

    TAP, you posted an addo_O !!!

    I have never heard af an antivirus company what you told.
    I checked google, sure was some with a "fancy" page.

    But in this discussion, you posted a newcomer add?

    I use Avast, but we all know kaspersky has fastest reply, maybe :p

    EDIT:
    and checking a language tab in that site it was a chinese site.
    Knowing from where you come from, it was really an advertisemento_O?

    Lost your reputaion on me TAP.
    Maybe in a few years that company is on top, but for now, I feel bad about your reply

    @ Jarmo P, I'm sorry.

    What I said is my personal experience with FortiGate (luckily FortiGate does a good job for me), if it is considered as some kind of adds, moderators can delete my post with no problems.

    I've used Fortinet FortiGate antivirus firewall (hardware), CA eTrust Antivirus and a few other security products at work, and use avast! Home Edition on my personal laptop/desktop and my home network.

    I think it's not so strange that you haven't heard about Fortinet, because Fortinet's products (it's a network-based antivirus) mainly focus on corporate network protections, not for home users.

    I don't see Taps post as an add. It was a personal observation as to how well he believes his companys security program seems to work.

    I was thinking more on how long you usually wait for antivirus company to detect a sample after you submit it to them.

    I'm almost 100% sure that NOD32 detected all those threats proactively without needing to update :)

    From my experience , by far , Kaspersky.
    I sent them infected sample , they confirm it in 3 (three) minutes :eek: and add signature in the next update (about 40 minutes).
    This is the fastest response I ever seen.

    BTW I sent the same sample to eset and they still don't detect it after 26 hours now!:'(
    It's about Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Zlob.pl , ITW , agressive ,and hard to clean from an infected system.

    Hello,
    please PM me the email address you sent the sample from. TD Zlob is of the highest priority these days so I wonder if we actually received it. Now it's been confirmed no such sample has been received at sample[at]eset.com nor samples[at]eset.com. When re-sending it, use the address samples[at]eset.com.

    It has been detected by Nod32 on my system more than a week ago, but it wasn't dealt with properly. It should be moved to Quarantine, but it didn't. All what happened was a report and that's it. I posted about this problem and the answer from Marcos was: emptying the recycle bin should do the trick.

    See my post on may 10th in Nod forum called: Trojan Downloader
