Hi all, (2004-08-03)

I found a virus in LucasHacks files!
Itīs the virus "Worm/Lovegate.ad".

How to detect:

Run (Free) AntiVir (lates verion). english: http://www.free-av.com/ , german: http://www.free-av.de/
Run Norton Antivirus 2004.
Use the internet updater of both to get the laters Virus Definition for each programm!

Run just AntiVir -> nothing found!
Run just Norton Antivirus 2004 -> nothing found

Run AntiVir as backround virus scanner
and than run Norton Antivirus 2004 to scan the flodder with the infected fiesl!
Now AntiVir founds the virus "Worm/Lovegate.ad" in:
costrip15.zip -> dxfull\costrip.exe
costrip15.zip -> dxwin\costrip.exe
scummrev2.zip -> Sucmm Revisited 2\scummrev.exe

This fieles are from http://scumm.mixnmojo.com/!

I SUGGEST TO STOP USEING FILES FROM LucasHacks !

Well, that's strange. I find it weird that Norton AntiVirus (which I find to be very reliable) don't find any infections if they really are infected. I'm using NAV2004 with the latest virus definitions myself and found nothing either. Maybe it's that free anti-virus program that falsely detects the files as infected?

I suggest you change your virus scanner. I use NAV2003, like Tomas says, there's nothing wrong with those files.

Now i can find nothing to?

after i updated NA 2004 with the Virus Definitions created August 2 (Intelligent Updater)

befor i used the latest virus defenition from the LiveUpdate
(Virus Definitions created July 28)

Additional infos to my first post:
Virusdefinision: AntiVir 2004-08-03; Norton Antivirus 2004 2004-07-28(LiveUpdate)

i cannot belive that an antivirus program did auch a mistake.

under free-av.com you will find the free for noncomercialuse version of this retail product from http://www.antivir.de/en/

Maybe the fact that you trust your system to free anti-virus software is the problem?

And I suggest...

<drums>

that you stop running two virus scanners simultaneously. That's exactly the kind of situation that will cause false positives like that.

I'll shut up now.
