    nod32's trojan detection rate is sadly getting worse almost everyday im finding alltypes of malware that nod simply is not detceting

    you can see in this pic that nod32 is 1 on only a few av's that are not detecting this file im finding this really comman at the moment 1 of the reasons why i chose kav over nod32 :D

    In the av-comparatives test (August 2005), nod32 did better than McAfee at detecting trojans...a screenshot does not mean anything...

    And why is your pc full of trojans and malware on a daily basis? Stop visiting dodgy websites and you won't have the problem.

    I find it very interesting that no info/discussion about non-virus malware detection is being discussed here. I run ZA Pro 6 with anti-spyware off to allow NOD32 maximum exposure. I'm getting no non-virus hits at all; at least in the logs. When I periodically scan with Adaware, Sybot S&D I get almost all cookies, which straddle the fence. So I'm not even getting the non-virus threatware traffic to really see if NOD32 is intercepting.

    So again I ask the NOD32 community: are your experiences showing NOD32 catching non-virus threatware?

    Stick around here long enough, Trojan, and you'll learn soon enough that it is simply fashionable for many to bash one of "the big boys".....

    No reason at all to change anything if that is what you are inferring.:)

    KAV will also miss some that NOD and other AVs will detect.

    makes me feel that little bit safer knowing that these comman trojans are detected by my antivirus, if i had the misfortune of using nod32 i wouldn't feel as safe knowing anyone can download trojans and infect me
    if i was a nod32 user i would be thanking my firewall for saving me and probley checking my logs as we speak lol :)

    LOL, keep posting away. I have much better things to do.:)
    Both KAV and NOD are good. I use them both on different machines. Currently KAV has the edge on reactive detection while NOD can provide better proactive detection.

    Because the ESET gods said so. :)
    Thier response will be something along the lines of the Official NOD32 forum is for support, etc.

    Other than that this thread is a joke, with a simple search you will see that using an AT with your AV is the best approach, the layered approach.

    Trojan ... I don't see the purpose of your posts or this thread. But rather than wasting everyones time trying to be destructive, why don't you submit those samples to every AV company that doesn't detect your reported 'malware', then they can analyze them and add detection if necessary.

    Regards;

    A layered approach is good.:)

    how am i being destuctive, the point is obviously to find commany available trojans that nod32 and kav are not detecting is this forum a free forum or does eset call the shots im begining to wonder. and do you not know that virus total submit samples?? since i have uploaded them allredy "note the screen shots" my guess is that they will be detected by tommorow

    It's more in how you say it than what you say. You might as well say NOD user=Idiot.

    Well the fact is that KAV didn't detect it in that file per Jotti's scanner.
    However a number of other AVs did.:)
