my wife downloaded that, not sure how, came from a mail I think, she probably clicked on an attachment randomly
I found it in a shared folder, knew I never put it there, and it disappeared from view as soon as I clicked on it (I know I shouldn't have clicked, I should have scanned it first
). Okay I then found it in Chest on her laptop, explaining how it disappeared as I said.
One question I have here is why wasn't it scanned and sent to Chest immediately when it was saved to disk in the first place. That's an executable, so why was it ignored until it got manually executed
(not mentioning that the webshield didn't stop it).
just for info: the file was called flvdirect.exeinfo from prevx:http://www.prevx.com/filenames/X2669713580830956212-X1/FLVDIRECT.EXE.html
