    Cool site that scans submitted files with various scanners and displays the % detection rate. I was just wondering why they don't use NOD32? At the top of the website it says McAfee have asked him not to use their scanner, I was wondering if ESET have done something similar.

    Jotti's scanner is not a tester for AVs but a online single file checker with multiple engines (i think it has 9 of them right now).

    If one discards the statistics, I think it is a very useful service, imho of course.

    I have run into occasions where top of the line anti-trojan products have given me a warning on a file that I have no reason to suspect being a trojan.

    A system like that would help me to get some kind of idea, whether it is a false positive or not.

    Of course, I don't know how legal it is to run a service like that (it depends on the laws of each country and I don't even know where that service is run).

    But useful service it is to me personally, nevertheless.

    I don't think it is meant to compete with Virus Bulletin reviews.

    PS BTW, isn't this in a wrong forum area?

    I suppose it is in the wrong forum.

    Not really because I was specifically asking if ESET had requested that NOD32 not be on the site. It has good heuristics so would be a useful addition.

    I asked him about avast! and he said he requires stable Linux version of AV(at the time i was asking him,there was no avast! Linux version yet). Maybe NOD32 lacks something or ESET simply doesn't allow him.
