I am currently using NOD32 v3 (started with v2), and am quite happy with the product (though, of course, I have not had an occasion to put its capabilities to test). I have been recommending NOD32 to my friends and family, preferring it over Kaspersky's, Sunbelt Vipre, AVG7 and other products for various reasons. However, today a friend of mine - who is in the market for buying an antivirus product - pointed out a Wikipedia article about NOD32 which says "Eset Smart Security and NOD32 antivirus lack a Self-Protection module, making them vulnerable to viruses and illegal patches." When he wrote to Eset customer service, they gave him a stock reply which did not address the concern at all, but referred him instead to a few web-based reviews of the Eset products. I found this quite unsatisfactory, and frankly, embarrassing, since I had been speaking so much in favor of NOD32. Is it possible to have an honest opinion about this particular vulnerability mentioned in the Wikipedia article? Thanks in advance.
