    Nod32 recently identified one of my files (which ironically is a "patch" for Nod32 itself) as being a Win32/HackAV.G virus during a in-depth scan. I was just wondering if this would be a false-positive since when I scanned the file with Norton, Kaspersky, and AVG, nothing came up.

    anyone? After spending hours googling, I still can't find a answer as to what exactly HackAV.G is.

    hi hi...

    i got the exact same issue but in reverse order.
    the first in-depth scan actually went negative, meaning no viruses found.
    for fun, i ran the 2nd, followed by the 3rd scans, one after another, and the program found the "Win32/HackAV.G" under my "C:\Program Files\ESET\nod32fix.reg"

    action taken: "leave"

    i cant find further info about this.
    anybody got any feedbacks or inputs or advice?

    Congratulations, you've just implicitly admitted the fact that you had pirated the software.

    The nod32 patch you are referring to is not an official ESET patch but rather a NOD32 crack allowing virus definition updates without the need to pay for a license. NOD32 started to recognize this patch (crack) as a virus, but there in no harm coming from that file, other than making your NOD32 copy an 'illegal' one.
