    I have this file that contained some viruses on my computer. It's a zip file with an exe in it.

    I ran it on a couple different antivirus scanning sites:
    www.virustotal.com
    http://virusscan.jotti.org/

    On the results page I had multiple viruses/threats found.

    Cryptolocker.Suspicious
    Mal/EncPk-AAQ

    TR/Crypt.ZPACK.25671
    Packed.Win32.Ransom-Crypter.1!O
    W32/Trojan.XCQA-2166
    W32/Trojan3.INH
    Worm.Aspxor
    Troj/Invo-Zip

    Given that these are all found by different security products are each of the threats the same or are some of them unique. I'm asking because I ended up opening the file when I meant to look at its extension and Norton blocked 2 attacks by:

    Trojan.Asprox.B
    Trojan S moaler Activity 2

    Norton didn't find any problem with the file when scanning it without opening it however. When I had the tech look at my computer they didn't concern themselves with the infected file and since restarting my computer it has been flaky.

    So, I need to know if they missed something.

    Different companies use to give different names to the same malware. Even a widely known trojan like Zeus receive different names like Zbot, Wsnpoem or Zeu s. In your case, it seems to be a trojan that encrypts your important files and personal documents to ask you for a ransom.

    Probably because it was in a Zip. Some Anti's don't scan inside Zips.

    You say that you Opened the file, the Zip or EXE, or both ?

    Where did you get the Zip from ?

    If you were Really infected, you would know by now.
