    Why NOD32 does not detects viruses, after the packaging:
    ASProtect v. 1.56, VMProtect/Ultimate, WinUpack 0.3.9, and many others.
    Will unpack, and when?

    Why check the potentially undesirable not detect all protectors?

    Detecting packers as such leads to enourmous number of false positives. Only packers utilized mainly by malware writers are detected as potentially unwanted applications providing that they also fulfill certain criteria.
