Praises aside, it is nice to know you're protected, but I haven't noticed any official statement from Alwil in this thread. Or am I missing something here ? Who can guarantee this "good news there is detection" is official ?

Nobody guarantees it's official...

It will be good if Maxx posts something here...

If your windows is upto date,and you also use limited user rights,I beleive you will not get infected.Gmer detects and removes this threat.You need to scroll down,to read article
