Hi Folks,

I caught another one.

Get it on:   REMOVED

It spreads by mail in Brazil.

Please, NEVER post direct links to viruses. Someone might actually click on that link by mistake! I hope an admin will remove it soon. marc_santosbr, please edit your post!

All right. I'm sorry.

So, is there another way to contribue with avast, by sending the virus that avast do not detected ?

From avast's website:

If you have any suspicious files that are not detected by the latest version of our antivirus programs, you can send them to virus@asw.cz. An ideal way to send such files is to compressed them as ZIP with the password 'virus' (so that the attachment is not deleted by some other antivirus on the way).

You can zip and password protect ('virus', will do) the suspect file and send it to virus @ avast.com (no spaces).

Give a brief outline of the problem (including the url you believe is connected), the fact that you believe it to be a new virus and include the password in the body of the email.

Some info on the avast version and VPS number (see about avast {right click avast icon}) will also help.
