This is the basic consensus of what is occurring @ PSX Scene where it was originally posted by the author.
1) He has a self replicating virus on his computer.
2) His intentions are to slander a popular product with ulterior motives. Possibly affiliated with an org.
Regardless of either here is what I posted to his follow up.
Let me present you with some evidence and statistics to prove the unlikeliness of your story. Since 2005, over 81% of consumers are using some sort of antivirus with 67% using some form of anti-spyware. Since that time, Antivirus and Anti-spyware have been merged into a single module we all call Antivirus programs (unless you are still running a SUPER dated program). Now, over half a decade later, I would expect that 81% to be significantly higher.
Let us move on to Exhibit B. I conducted some research about your Trojan.
The study surveyed 1099 U.S. consumers.
Based on the figures for the number of internet users below:
Number using anti-virus software ? 165,097,786.
Number using anti-spyware ? 136,562,366.
I'm assuming this is your scan from Jotti as mentioned in you initial post, since this scan was performed yesterday with identical names: Here.
I was able to match this virus back to 2007 using the hash and size info, on Avira's virus database (I would say, a pretty respectable antivirus program). Here.
If you look at the statistics of this virus - everything claims that it is a low threat. Not to mention under the "Statistics" chart, there has been no occurrences of any statistical importance. Zero to be exact, but I want to give you the benefit of the doubt.
In conclusion, this virus is dated. With over 81+% of our consumer population with a form of antivirus and spyware over half a decade ago. This Trojan can be picked up on ALL antivirus programs as it a VERY BASIC Trojan. With absolutely no surfacing of this virus as of late and your single random occurrence of a virus of little to no threat. It is time for your to ask yourself three questions, (1) why would ANYONE intentionally OR even unwillingly put a Trojan so incapable? (2) It has been over 24+ hours and I've browse all other forums with not as much as a peep? (3) Isn't it time to consider a retract and amend this story as a singled out occurrence, especially with all this proof?
If you choose not to, then I and everyone else here would understand your true intentions.
