    Or maybe, sometimes NOD is better and sometimes AntiVir, it depends... ;)

    This is absolutely a new malware that I got today.

    Re: antivir

    ...which brings us back to issue of jotti's scanner not being a reliable source when comparing AVs, seeing as it runs on linux and NOD32's settings (and maybe other AVs) can not be fully implemented.

    Maybe it isnt picked up by NOD32 yet, and maybe you have a copy of NOD32 to test this yourself...

    Re: antivir

    This can happen with all the AV's, but globally NOD32 is much better than AntiVir...

    By the way, did you try that file on Virus Total?

    Not yet, but with NOD32 2.51.3 Beta and best possible settings in it, here it is.

    Re: antivir

    But even AntiVir can't pick up all new one nasties. This is the second nasty that McAfee VSE 8.0i with AntiSpy module and 5.0.00 Beta scanning engine picked for me a few minutes ago.

    I would if i only had money for one program, of these two choose AntiVir and spend the money on a anti-trojan like BOClean or Ewido. :)

    People complain about theway Antivir updates. Updates are large downloads apparently and not as frequent as NOD so I've heard as I do not use Antivir.

    Antivir updates more than nod.
    Also antivir database is large ,about 180,000.
    what is nods.
    Tried both,and nod runs lighter on my system.

    theres no official poll, but ill put my vote for nod32. it offers fair detection rates, excellent heuristics and a light footprint.

    Both examples you present to highlight Nod32 in a less than good light are using a Trojan as an example! Surely you dont need it spelt out that Nod32 is an antivirus and not a Trojan scanner? Obviously some antivirus excell at both but Eset have never made this claim.
