Trojan in Screenshot captor???
« on: March 12, 2008, 03:00:56 AM »
Bad surprise this morning, my MacAfee AV prog detected the following a generic.dx trojan in screenshotcaptor.exe:
3/12/2008   8:51:48 AM   Borttagen       C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\FindAndRunRobot.exe   C:\PROGRAM FILES\SCREENSHOTCAPTOR\SCREENSHOTCAPTOR.EXE   Generic.dx (Trojan)
3/12/2008   8:51:48 AM   Borttagen       C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\FindAndRunRobot.exe   C:\Program Files\ScreenshotCaptor\ScreenshotCaptor.exe\00558514.EXE   Generic.dx (Trojan)

Something to do with the hacking of the site?  >:(

Tomos has it right, its a *confirmed* false alaram with McAfee.

This thread is a bit more useful than the one Tomos linked you to: http://www.donationc...ndex.php?topic=12614

As for this:
Something to do with the hacking of the site?

The answer is decidely NO -- it's just a bad coincidence.  None of the downloadable files on DC were affected in any way.

This is simply (another) case of an anti-virus tool giving a false positive.  McAfee will be updated in a day or two and will stop triggering on the files.  Blame McAfee not me!
