    It is like the Osama is death-file, You find the links to it from usenet. It says Arnold Schwartzzegger committed suicide. In the zip-file there is a .scr -file which Nod32 beta says is clean (so do many other AV-programs). But the tough ones like Kaspersky, F-secure, McAfee and Panda report immediately that it is infected with Hackarmy.gen-virus. I am very diasappointed to NOD with this.

    Hello,
    Please take a look at http://www.nod32.com/support/info.htm#CurVersion and search for Hackarmy. There are 7 variants of this trojan detected by NOD32. The one you have was detected as a generic sample - if you have the most current version installed (1.820) and NOD didn't pick it up though, please submit the file to samples@eset.com for analysis.

    It did not detect it for me either with the latest definitions and I submitted the virus to ESET.

    I also thought that NOD32 was suppose to detect viruses with it's advanced herusitic even without a vrus definition for it. This is what I thought made NOD32 one of the best Antivirus programs.

    Did you have the AV tweaked out fully or were you using it in its default configuration?

    I had also my options to scan everything as deep as possible. This one seems to be a hard bite for AV-proggies as many big players like Norton does not find it. And Nod didn't find anything even after it had infected my machine (did it with purpose, restored then a clean image...)

    Only Norman detects it heuristically.

    The latest version of NOD32 (1.821) already detects it.
