is the free linux version of bitdefender maintained? I mention this
because in a quick test, the latest version failed to detect
Worm.SomeFool.P (ClamAV).

Checking on and their version of bitdefender
picks it up as Win32.Netsky.P at mm Most of the engines on this site pick
it up as a Netsky trojan.

my bitdefender is 7.1-3, the site above doesnt provide version numbers
but I suspect version 9 pro.

I tested by:
/opt/bdc/bdc /folder/full/of/junk/df*
clamscan --infected /folder/full/of/junk/df*
