    Does NOD32 have detection for the Zotob worm (and its variants)? I don't see "zotob" listed:

    I'm not concerned about becoming infected; I'm just trying to determine if Eset is on top of it.

    I hope with 1.1196 definition, we are protected from Zotob.D, because here in Brazil there are more than 1.000 computers already infected.

    Marcos stated that Zotob is a Mytob variant, and that ALL Mytob variants had been detected using advanced heuristics - make sure you have AH turned ON - then you don't need to worry about Eset getting a definition update out to you in time ahead of EVERY single virus... AH is your friend...

    seems to be a lot of confusion over the zotob threat and its variants - i'm sure all the current threats are covered by nod32, it just complicates matters when different AVs call them different names.

    makes people extra-anxious when it hits the headlines: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4159002.stm and you cant see the name of the threat in your AV's signature list.

    Zotob seems to be detected as Mytob by nod32. if someone from Eset could just say YES YOU'RE COVERED, STOP STRESSING ABOUT IT! then that would be cool :D

    I'm not worried about becoming infected by zotob, or wotob, or mozambique, or whatever they want to call it. I'm not at risk. (Please, no pissing matches on why I'd make that statement.) I just wanted to verify that Eset was on the ball. I wasn't expressing doubt that they were.

    I think it's about time that vendors agree on a common naming scheme. But no, I'm not holding my breath.

    yep, i agree, would make it a lot easier if they used the same naming convention, but also not holding my breath. also not suggesting doubt on your part :)

    Is Ebot a variant of Zotob? Is NOD32 protected against it?

    I'm not worry about the thing, cause I can trust NOD 32, just keeping me sleep tight at night.
