    Hi,

    When NOD32 fails to detect a virus as in the following instance this morning on Jotti, is it primarily because NOD32 does better in real-time detection as opposed to on-demand, or is it because its anti-trojan database still needs to be enhanced. Thanks for the info.

    All the AVs miss a bunch at Jotti at any given time.

    Example this morning at about 9am cst when I last checked.

    Last piece of malware found was Trojan-PSW.Win32.PdPinch.gen in winhost.exe, detected by:

    Thanks for the reply Stan.

    It's a tough world. It is interesting that you captured one where KAV was unable to detect. The only way to go is layered.

    While KAV may have the best overall detection rate I actually I see a lot that KAV didn't detect but others did.
