    What's the best site for learning the alternate names used by various AV solution providers for the same threat?

    ie, if I learn of the threat, I'd like to know if NOD32 updates have covered it - which isn't easy as the name I know it by might be different from the name it is known to Eset as.

    example: bankash-a trojan (details here) - might be know as Banker.XX - by Eset - but we don't know for sure if it's been covered when various companies/web sites use different names...

    Until there is agreement on naming viruses, we will continue to be in the dark.

    agreed - in this particular case, I am "assuming" that the name was given to the trojan by M$ - so goodness knows what everyone else calls it... ;)
