    I submitted a file that both Avast Home and a-squared free said had the ZapChast trojan, but that NOD32 said was OK.

    I noticed when I submitted that it said I wouldn't get a response unless more info is needed. From past experience, will I get a response telling me if the file was indeed OK or just a FP (though since it's two other scanners, I dunno about that)?

    Usually you'll get no response. Only if you submit a password protected file and forgot to include the password or something ;)
    And sometimes a few guys from Eset will respond on these forums about the file you submitted.

    Not too comforting. It looks like NOD32 was missing it, since I just tried Panda ActiveScan online and it found the same trojan. What's interesting is that BOClean doesn't see anything either when I use its file scanner by dragging the file over to the menu.

    Recently I received some non-functional Zapchat trojans, maybe it was one of them. Send it to support[at]eset.com so that I can have a look at it.

    Non-functional .. There is no threat because the trojan is not working and can't harm your system. Other AV's will still report it as a threat though, even if it really isn't.

    But let's see what it is after the guys at Eset has analyzed it :)

    usually it means that the threat was broken, or disabled in some way...

    So this DLL was in a ZIP. That mean if it was installed as it was supposed to be it would be detected?
