Is virus known to avast?
« on: November 27, 2004, 01:05:00 AM »
Hello,

I am trying to find to find the currently spreading virus W32/Sober.i in the avast Virus-Database, but it is not listed.
The last entry I can find is Sober.H.
Can anybody tell me where in the database is Sober.i located? As it is a heavy circulating at the moment, I am sure avast is on top of detection and has it surely in in its database.

Can anybody give a hint where to look for the information?
I also didn't see the virus listed here:

Time to be afraid?

Different av vendors are using different names for malware.

Since you visited the Avast website, why didn't you look at THIS while you where there?

OK, thanks for making me happy again.

I didn't look that close. It's a pitty that there are no standardized names.
