    I'm waiting only for one thing: the inclusion of the Win32/Statik heuristics algorithm into the other scanning modules.

    Hope this is it.

    Moderately. Nothing to get excited over in terms of results, but heck, NOD32 needs all the help it can get.

    I'm having somewhat of a hard time finding samples that trigger this algorithm, and testing it is annoying because I have to upload the samples somewhere and download them. From what little I've seen, I'm speculating that it adds detection for certain packer combinations (whether it's an unpacker or packer detection I have no idea) that NOD32 currently chokes on. It's been catching mostly fake codecs and samples that were later detected as Win32/Pacex.Gen variants, for the time being.

    Thanks solcroft :)
    Pacex and Genetik detections have become fairly common.

    Hardy har har.

    Tell that to Sophos and Avira. F-PROT looks set to kick ESET's behind as well. And of course, let's not even mention Ikarus...

    Oh, really? And who's the judge of "many"? Let's be honest: you don't use those products, and you've never seen any.

    Take Avira during the last AV-C retrospective test. 3000+ more detections for only 16 more FPs. I think the verdict is clear.

    It is clear. This is off topic for these forums.

    I think we can discuss very simple and obvious facts without having to resort to defensive childishness. Right?

    Installer file (the MSI) for build 3.0.650 is 19.5 MBs , smaller than 3.0.642 , which is bigger (as far as I can remember) :D

    0.642 is 19.8Mb on disk, perhaps some code optimisation etc for 0.650
    So is your advice to download and install overo_O

    OK, who's already done and is it stable.

    3 installs, overwriting .642, here - XP Home, Pro, and MCE - stable, no issues. :)

    I got 19.985 MB for the installer file, though. o_O

    The files sizes are about the same then.
    The file size 'on disk' is greater than the file size of the installer.
    Disk manufacturers calulate meg, gigs etc in round numbers (1000's etc) as opposed to 'real' size of 1024. It makes the disks seem bigger;)
    So - 19.8 x 1000/1024 = 19.4 approx.

    :D

    DavidCo,
    Quite right! Thanks for spelling that out. :)


    Anyway, here's a list of the changes in .650:

    • Fixed problem with updating from a mirror http server when NTLM authentication is used.
    • Fixed problem with display of license expiration date.
    • Fixed integration issue with Microsoft Windows Mail under Windows Vista.
    • Fixed firewall issues.
