    Three days ago i sent a sample of a suspicious file i rceived via email to eset for review via the analysis button. The Jotti-Online-Scanners didn't found anything, neither had nod32. Today I sent the same file again to Jotti and 10 out of 14 scanners did found a virus in this file. NOD32 still doesn't.
    I must say, I'm a little disappointed...

    BTW: Virus Name is Trojan/Proxy.Agen.Z.1.A (AntiVir)

    Shouldn´t submit a sample through the submit to analysis in NOD32 be enough?

    I´ve submitted many samples through the option to submit file to analysis in NOD32 and now wonder if they reached ESET at all...

    Well the problem is the user will see that feature, submit a sample and forget :)

    I´ll look for the samples in my computers HD when I get home and, if I have not deleted them by now, I´ll send them by email.

    One of them was a new version of Ghost Keylogger that is not detected by NOD. At least this one I remember where I downloaded from :)

    And by the way... You don't find good virus analysts around the next bus stop. I mean at least not during the winter time right now - it's far to cold here :D :D :D

    No, I didn't knew this way of submitting samples. I'll do so next time I receive a new and unknown Virus ;-)

    So out of curiosity what would be the average time detection is added when submitted using NOD32 instead of the email? Isn't it true that doing it this way by the time you look at the sample sent using NOD32 you would have already seen it sent by email or even having NOD32 detect it on your end as fast as these Virus' spread these days? I guess my question is what advantage is having the ability to send the sample in using NOD32 instead of email. I know it is a selling point but other than that I am not sure. If you could explain the answers above it might help me understand.

    Thanks,

    Chris
