    Hello, I'm using Nod 4.2.67 64Bits in windows 7 and tried eicar test.

    When I try to open eicar.com in firefox nod blocks it 6 times (I only clicked one time the link). Nod shows the block popup six times. Why?

    Also when I copy the eicar code text in a txt file and try to save it nod detect it but in "Number of blocked attacks" it counts 2 instead of 1. I dunno what happens.

    It is my first day with nod32, just bought it today. I also have comodo firewall 5 and malwarebytes antimalware.

    Is it normal?

    Thanks in advance.

    It depends on how many times the browser attempts to download a file if a failure occurs (in this case, due to the file being blocked by EAV). The same holds true for writing the eicar string to a file. I've tried it with FAR and the counter increased by 1 after eicar was detected.
