About this Win32:Trojan-gen. {Other}
« on: August 04, 2004, 01:15:48 PM »
Hi all!

Well, as i have read through these posts a little bit i think you´re tired of hearing about this "virus" if it really is a virus, lots of different opinions about this i´ve noticed.

Well, i have no choice, just yesterday i also did a scan of my system and Avast discovered this, like many others i noticed, mine is also located in c:program/Winrar and i CAN´T get rid of it no matter what i do.

The funny thing is though that i´ve tried several on-linescanners (trend-micro, symantec etc.,) and they don´t find a thing. This makes me wonder as some ppl just say it´s a falsealarm but it makes me nervous anyway.

So, my good friends, what the %*^# shall i do?

Please someone give me a good, easy solution to this!

Thank You!

I have to admit that it is my moms computer.  I don't use winrar. I use www.zipgenius.it it is a free compression utility.  I am going to look at it Saturday, but it has been a repetive problem, always in the winrar file.  I plan on just removing winrar so she'll stop worrying about it.  However her pc auto updates on start up and it should be the latest version unless it has changed since Monday.

Basically, the latest VPS update should resolve all known false positives...

Using 0432-2 database, I get a trigger on "uninstall.exe" that comes with Meshcam (and on the Meshcam installation program)  but no trigger on winrar.exe.

Meshcam is at http://www.meshcam.com/

I've emailed the programmer, but I'm sure it's a false trigger.

Vlk, I have been trying for almost 5 hours to upload the file.  I cannot send it by my ISP's POP mail, nor my ISP's Web mail, nor Yahoo mail.  All seem to be out of service.  Can your guys download the program from http://www.meshcam.com/download.php on their own?  Thanks.

Ehm, what exactly is the problem? You can't send any emails? Or just this particular file?

Thanks

What error messages are you getting to say you can't send the email?

Sometimes ISPs have an attachment file size restriction, what is the file size?

Sometimes ISPs and mail servers block .exe files in a half hearted attempt to combat viruses. Try to zip up the uninstall.exe file and see if that will go.

Try Zipping the file with WinZip and password protect the archive. Send the file along with a text message containing the password.
