    Just out of curiosity - could you tell us more about this BZIP2 compression method in ZIP archive? (any descriptions, specifications, links, ...?)
    Does any software support it, or is it just an internal VBA32 format maybe?

    I know what BZIP2 is (as a standalone archive), but the original post implied using BZIP2 compression inside of an ordinary ZIP archive (i.e. some kind of ZIP format extension), if I understand it correctly.

    The most easy way to create such archives to experiment with them is to use 7-zip.

    If you install and/or uninstall antivirus software and test it with samples you'll see that JOtti is right and NOD32 fails and Kaspersky is the best!

    Are you comparing KAV and NOD32 on Linux, right?

    If no, you can't compare them...

    That is exactly the kind of comment Jotti himself is referring to here that made him pull his statistics as they were being misused and people quoting HIM like you just did for something he has never said. Now that this poor subject has been beaten to death so many times only to be "bumped" like this again, thread closed.
