Re: sinteri virus

Just spoken to Adrian on the 'phone, and he did run the remaining two
av-sweeps in Multi-av items 3 and 4. i.e. Last night, I ran the Sophos one
and then set the Trend one running and went home. He tells me that he ran
the other two and now the CA etrust a/v "real-time" virus alert, for
sinteri, is not appearing but, there is an extra small CA-etrust icon in his
system tray with a little yellow thingy on it that pops out a message ballon
saying ....*etrust ...virus has been detected* and one can't do anything
else with it, for example right-click it to get a pop out menu or get iy to
expand in any way. * = his phone descriptions are even more vague and
inaccurate than I am !

Am on my way over there now, to have another go - will post any new findings
.....will subscribe him to this NG in OE so that I can copy and paste things
more accurately !

regards, Richard

Hi Richard:

There is no real wrireup at Sophos on "Troj/Dwnldr-CBY" and
I can only conclude that they are simple Downloader Trojans but are
indicative that they
*may* be more.

I wish after Sophos you ran McAfee. McAfee is at ~190,000 signatures
while Trend is

What would have been important to report was what is teh filly qualified
name and path of
the file(s) deemed by CA eTrust to be infected by the Sinteri infector.

Also I will note that Ewido is a fine product. Ewido was just recently
bought by Grisoft,
maker of AVG AV. Hopefully this purchase will IMPROVE Grisoft AVG's
software offering.

One final note is the Zone Alarm packages CA eTrust with it and often
those that say "Zone
Alarm" finds an infector really mean CA eTrust. { Likwise CA eTrsut
packages Zone alarm
FireWall with their software }
