Does NOD now stop theTrojan.Downloader-Gen
Most likely YES
However Trojan Downloader - Gen is too generic name , Provide more information what exactly are you asking . Have you been infected some time ago or what
Please look at [AVG antipsyware doesn't detect this file-why?] in Other Anti-Malware Software. That is where the trojan is discussed.
Hello again !
I read the thread (wasn't so concentrated) but I couldn't understand exactly and for sure if this file is real-threat/false positive .
If the file has really been submitted to Virus Total , all AV vendors (including ESET) will receive a copy of it . The OP of that thread didn't post the VirusTotal result and we can't be sure .
Simply a file name means nothing . You can have every malware and simply rename the file to ntos.exe , then put it in the %system% dir . You can also have a simple text file/clean , rename it to ntos.exe and put it in %system% folder . It is important for AV companies to analyze what is the content of the file and what exactly it does . If this trojan is important , massive , I am sure ESET will detect it . This is what I can say about that topic , the other is still unknown for me .
It´s a real threat
