Adobe Reader has a trojan?
« on: December 03, 2007, 08:55:34 PM »
I just turned on my wife's (Dell) laptop and the Dell Support center told me it didn't have the latest Adobe Reader plug-in for IE. So I had it take me to Adobe's website and clicked the install button and it began downloading.

As it was downloading the McAfee Security popped up saying there was a trojan in SGC (SGC15.exe), which was in the temporary files being downloaded by Adobe.

Does anyone else have information on this? Or even what SGC is?

I found a few mentions of this particular problem from a google search:

And all I see is people saying it's a false positive, but no official explanations of what SGC is or what it does. Interesting.
