    Hello, everybody.....recently I've discovered jotti's malware scan and since than I'm browsing very often this webpage. :)

    I've thought to something(correct me if I'm wrong) wouldn't be a good solution for NOD32 to request those files uploded there to imporve its defs (Because there are many viruses that NOD32 miss as I've seen on jotti's)

    They say on their webpage

    Tell me your oppinion about this....I consider it a good manner to improve NOD. ;)

    Hi pykko,

    All antivirus vendors participating over on Jotti's have access/receive malware samples (and some unnamed ones as well) - Eset/NOD32 included. No need to worry ;)

    Hi Pykko, if they don't already do this with Eset, they will when the new version 2.5 is loaded through the EWS (Early Warning System).

    Cheers :D

    OK...thx I've thought about this but... :doubt: I've noticed that one of the most scanned Trojans: trojan.dragonbot ( 463 times) is still not detected by NOD32. :(

    They do - started as soon as NOD32 participated ;)

    The number of uploads from one and the same malware does only indicate just that: individuals uploading one and the same file - and thus being scanned. Such an upload can happen within say one hour, and therefore is only important for statistics ;)
