    Just to update-- Trend's pattern file 1.953.00, (of OfficeScan) updated
    today, does in fact catch price.exe as a virus, and identifies it as
    Bagel.AC.

    Looks like my "BargainBuddy" information is either outdated, or the Bagle
    reference is not entirely correct. I assume the previous, though.
