KoenG, do you have that sample? Did you submit it to avast team?
Sure it is infected...

The problem I have with this thread is that there is no follow up from anyone that is posting the links to Virustotal...


All it takes is for the person submitting the file to add it to the chest and scan it every couple of days, and when it is detected, simply edit the relevant post to say that it is now detected. Otherwise IMHO there is no point in just posting the links...
This is what I do if there is a sample that I have to submit (good or bad) leave a copy in the chest, and then scan it every couple of days, once it is detected/removed from detection then the file can go.

You can even add comments via the chest so that you can keep track of the file itself...

They already posted they won't "follow" this thread... They would analyze the samples sent to them.

It would be a good think a track back from the user, yes.

Sorry, I didn't mean avast team, I meant those that post the links...
For instance, Marc57's post (nothing against him, just an example of what I meant) according to VT, there is another report which shows avast! detects it. All it needs is for the user to edit, and say it is now detected. Otherwise we just have a bunch of useless links...
