    I noticed that the NOD32 - v.1.1606 (20060616) update has a "Win32/Exploit.MSExcel.Downloader" is this the same as the "Downloader.Booli.A"? Is it just me or do others find it difficult to cross reference the updates that NOD32 releases with other virus names? The Virus Radar search returned no hits on "Win32/Exploit.MSExcel.Downloader". How often is the Threat Encylopedia http://www.eset.com/threat-center/encyclopedia.php updated?

    I would of liked to have replied to someone saying that NOD32 was already updated for the Zero Day exploit MDropper.J and Bookli.A but I find that it is very difficult trying to determine what exactly these updates are protecting against ie. more information on the actual trojan/virus.

    Before posting the above I went to the Threat Blog http://www.eset.com/threat-center/eset_threat_blog.php which is linked off http://www.eset.com/threat-center/pedia/w.htm which shows nothing regarding this. However after posting I found this reference to another threat blog
    http://www.eset.com/threat-center/blog/index.php which does! The links on the web site needs to be updated and consistent to cut down the confusion.
