    I've often wondered if NOD32 updates covered a particular threat, and until now, manually trawled the update pages looking for a particular search string using the browser search option.

    This seemed a little tedious, so as our copy of the NOD32 updates is backended by a database, I knocked up a search:

    http://www.nod32usa.com/nod32-updates/

    So, if you want to know which updates contained dragonbot variants, enter dragonbot in the search box, and press the "Search NOD32 updates" button - and results will be shown...

    Limitations:
    • 50 most recent updates will be shown
    • keyword search only works on threats at this time
    Things to be added:
    • search by date
    • search by update number
    • paging for results past 50

    I hope someone else finds this useful too...

    regards

    Greg

    thanks zashita - I hope everyone manages to get some use out of it - I'm often asked if a threat is covered, and I normally refer whoever asked the question to the regular updates page, and having searched countless times for a particular threat myself, I know it's a pain.. so once the pain of searching for Nth time exceeded the effort of putting a simple search together, I finally got round to putting it in place! Now at least others can also benefit! ;)

    regards

    Greg

    It will be usefull :)
    Thank you to share this with us ;)
    And the nicest addition you could made (if possible), would be to highlight the searched words within the result, to reduce our pain :cool:

    Regards

    zashita: lol - yes - I'll be entering the wish-list for this, and just about every other section of our nod32usa website into our web based client/project management system - we're in the process of finishing the built of a system which holds all client relationship, client quotes, project management and much more... even internal website (or should that be ESPECIALLY internal websites) are entered into the system!

    Jaguar: you're welcome... I figured if I found it useful, then at least one other user might! ;)

    It was what I call a low hanging apple - ie, it was the easiest of the items to add, with perhaps the biggest benefit ... so after I got back from the fireworks display I went to for the 4th of July, I added it as a way of 'winding down'...

    Maybe 4th of July should come more often with such little ideas and great benefit ;) (and fireworks too)
