    Hi

    I just installed NOD32 with password and do on. ;)
    The Update server is set to Automatic

    The problem is when updating, NOD32 tries to connect on HTTP to:
    www.refdesk.com (that doesn't seem reliable (http://www.aallix.com/finding.php?page=free+trojan+virus)
    or
    gin.ba.euroweb.sk (located in slovenia) :eek:

    Are those server legitimate for NOD32's updates?
    If yes, is there a list of the server adresses used by NOD32 to update itself? (So that I can set-up my firewall). What is yours? o_O

    Thanks you in advance! ;)

    There is an open question on what servers are mirroring the downloads at this moment. Here's a thread that shows what other people are seeing, and it references yet another thread on this:

    NOD32 access only on legitimate update servers. Updated are signed so you cant get wrong update. :cool:

    It seems the reverse DNS record of 140.239.119.12 points to www.refdesk.com. Hopefully we'll make it to update the record shortly.
