avast! doesn't detect Dyfica Trojan
« on: February 12, 2004, 01:37:52 PM »
Today, 12/02/2004, Amon - resident scanner of NOD32 reported TrojanDownloader.DyficaAB trojan on my system. Since I have a bunch of AV products, I decided to test them and here are the results:

AV Product and version                 Dyfica trojan detected
F-Prot 3.14b                                  No
NAV 2003                                      No
PAV Platinum 7.05.03                      No
Avast! Home 4.1.32 vps 0401-13       No                :'(      
DrWeb 4.31                                   Yes
KAV 4.5.058                                 Yes
NOD32 1.623                                 Yes    

All AV products were updated today, 12/02/2004.

Guys?

Dyflca is a kind of Adware, or lets say it tries to download Adware. So it is not really a Virus related Malware. But from my point of view Antivirussoftware should detect such kind of Malware like Adware(downloader and Hijacker.

Send your sample to virus@asw.cz and i am sure that they will add it asap!:)
