    People, does NOD32 scan NNTP and P2P traffic on-the-fly? If not, will it be implemented?

    TIA,
    Scirious.

    However, wouldn't it be interesting to not allow a threat to be saved into my disk by scanning it on-the-fly? Mainly if you consider that even some free avs like avast has these capabilaties?

    TIA,
    Scirious.

    The POP3 and HTTP are more important than NTTP/P2P , IMON handles the first mentioned . You can't wish everything from a program , even though it is the best one. ;)

    Well, I'm seriously confused about this subject. I use Agent and just retrieved some new headers from the Forte-Agent newsgroup.

    Although I didn't notice much activity in NOD when the headers were being retrieved, I did notice that something was happening when I retrieved individual posts. Each time I retrieved a message, AMON appeared to be scanning the group directory database and incremented. It must have been scanning something. o_O

    AMON would be checking as the files were written to the hdd, not as they were being downloaded. Yes it is an argument of semantics, but the OP did mention "on the fly" which means as the files are being downloaded, the advantage being malware doesn't touch your hdd and is stopped in the data flow stage instead of in the cache as it is being written.
