NOD32 Antivirus Update 1.1551

NOD32 Antivirus detection database has been updated to version 1.1551 (20060521). This update does include detections for the Word document trojan that I talked about in my previous post about being careful when opening Word documents. I've marked the related detections in red below.

NOD32 Antivirus is in my opinion the best anti virus program available. It is light on resources, easy to maintain, and has one of the best detection and removal capabilities among anti virus programs.

Since its first submission for testing in May 1998, NOD32 was the only tested product that has never missed a single In the Wild virus. NOD32 has been selected as the "Antivirus program of 2001" by Australian PC User magazine, "Best Buy, Best Performance, Best Value" by the independent UK Consumer's Association
From Eset's NOD32 product information page.

Threats added in this update include the following:

Win32/Exploit.MSWord.Smtag, Win32/Adware.MediaTickets, Win32/Exploit.MSWord.1Table (4), Win32/Ginwui.A (2), Win32/Ginwui.B (5), Win32/Small.KH, Win32/TrojanDownloader.Small.CKJ, Win32/TrojanProxy.Migmaf (2)
