NOD32 can detect it, but ClamWin can not.
Please check it.
Thanks.

ClamWin uses the scanning engine and virus signatures provided by the Clam AV project for Linux. Clam AV is responsible for all virus signatures, so undetected viruses (and false positive detections also) must be reported to Clam AV at http://www.clamav.net/contact on the web. ClamWin can not do anything with infected files or virus signatures.

I have reported the file to Clam AV as infected, so they will prepare a signature for it. It might take several days for them to do his however.

Thank you for using ClamWin!

Sometimes Clam AV does not work on a file. I suggest that you should report it to them at the address I gave you--maybe they will notice it with a couple of users reporting it. It might also help to check the file on Virus Total--because Clam Av should get a copy of the file from Virus Total if they do not detect it. ClamWin has no control over the virus signatures.

Thanks for using ClamWin!

Clam AV does not prepare as many signatures as most other AVs. It is used mostly on Linux email servers. Cisco now owns Clam AV, and some of their computer security experts work on Clam AV when they can--on a part-time basis. The ClamWin developers prepare a Windows port of the Clam AV Linux scanning engine and have nothing to do with signatures or development.

Thanks for using ClamWin!
