    some heuristics flag this wordlist as malware. is it just one of the words that's setting it off?
    http://www.outpost9.com/files/WordLists.html

    dic-0294.zip

    thanks

    NOD32 says its clean.
    By the way that's an ordinary txt files, very very very low chance that it's malware :)

    I scanned the zip in VirusTotal and all scanners reported "no virus found"

    now i'm worried again, what did i end up scanning if it wasn't that zip o_O

    i scanned it at jottis and i got these flags -
    AntiVir Worm/SdBot.111616
    BitDefender Trojan.Downloader.Small.Gen
    F-Prot Antivirus Possibly a new variant of W32/Internet-Trojan-patched-based!Maximus
    F-Secure Anti-Virus Backdoor.Win32.SdBot.xd
    Kaspersky Anti-Virus Backdoor.Win32.SdBot.xd

    i was having problems getting it to scan the file, so i disconnected my http proxy. i'll try it again. when i looked at it it was just a wordlist. i'll try scanning it again.

    lol, ok i see what i did. it didn't scan at jottis, and i was just looking at the last malware found at the bottom of the screen :D

    does Kaspersky even use heuristics lol, ok i'm going to bed.

    anyway...

    Yes, what if it is the .exe form of a .zip, it could actually execute code during decompression.

    Kaspersky is supposed be issuing an update on Monday that I believe includes heuristics.

    lol, thanks, it's just a text file, i managed to work it out in the end. the reason i was abit frantic is someone asked for a wordlist and i gave that link, then i thought i scanned it at jottis and it contained malware, but i didn't realise jottis didn't do a scan. i was just looking at the last malware found at the bottom of the screen.

    i thought there might be malware somewhere in the zip, but my cousin thought the word list might trigger an heuristic flag because there was no other explaination at the time, i'll sit him down and have a word with him later :p

    According to the KAV 6 user guide, the current KAV already uses heuristics.

    Yes, Kaspersky uses Heuristics. Has been using it for some time, just like most other AV's.

    No, the update scheduled to be released on monday (Maintenance Pack 1) will not inclued an update to the Heuristics. The Heuristics update is under development.

    (A search on the Kaspersky forum would have given you this info, Howard... :D )

    I saw something that stated MP1 would be doing something with heuristics.
