    At work we use norton antivirus corprate edition, my boss was looking at webmail and she opened up an email infected with beagle and norton didnt do nothing to stop it. Realtime failed again and let windows media player files get replaced.


    I recently bought nod32 for my home pc and was wondering how nod32 realtime protection worked. Would it stop a virus from running if i was using webmail and opened a file?

    Yes AMON would catch anything from webmail, the new beta would catch it with IMON I beleive, but to answer your question, yes NOD should have caught it.

    Personally I never had any concern with Symantec products, except they use too much ressouce. IMHO Norton is a good product and never let me down.

    sorry, i don't agree there, on average once/twice a week, i see an updated nortons come in with problems and nod picks up viruses that nortons didn't

    Agreed, we have the exact same scenario in my 2 shops, they say they have Norton's, we say they have viruses, they are surprised, we are not... it's called experience...

    As you can see through all of my other posts and threads, I’m not into pulling down a product if it works or if I have no experience with the software. However, with Norton it is bloat-ware, that causes problems and in our experience does not work very well…

    Just my $1.00 worth, 2 cents gets you nothing these days… :D

    Cheers :D
     
  7. DUH! Were the definitions updated?, DUH!

    I've been bombarding NAV 2004 and SAV at work with ALL sorts of malware, Symantec catches them all.. Seems to me YOU folks don't know how to use an AV ...LOL

    NOD32 will detect the bug provided that either the signature is present in NOD32 database or the virus behavior falls under the heuristics rule sets.

    NAV update only 1 time per week. If you want to update NAV daily you need to do this manually! This is stupid.
    NAV heuristic is other bad point, indeed BloodHound is a joke.
    Ohhh, I forgave, NAV eat ram. and I know how use an AV ;)
