    Yesterday I got infected with the toy.exe usb worm. Is there any setting I have to add to NOD32 to avoid being infected in the future, or is NOD32 unable to detect this worm.Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Hi AlphaQuad, welcome to Wilders.

    Could you please take the following steps:

    1. Upload a sample to www.virustotal.com This service will provide an answer as to which antivirus companies are detecting the file, including Eset.

    2. Send a sample to samples@eset.com

    NOTE: for future reference, please only send files that you are certain are malware or suspicious, so the virus lab isn't overloaded.

    Please include with your email, both the sample and the Virus Total scan results.

    Cheers :D

    First of all, make sure that you have scanned it with the most current version of NOD32. I've found some that is detected, so perhaps you're just using an outdated NOD32

    Edit: I've just found that a Russian guy submitted it yestereday, if it was you then it's the very same sample I scanned at VirusTotal
