    Appears that with yesterdays update to the program modules that Kaspersky alerts on Dr Web scheduler (drwebscd.exe) as being infected with Win32.ZMist. As noted, it is a false positive.
    More info here: http://info.drweb.com/show/2578

    It made the front page news at drweb.com and at first glance it looked like they were using the opportunity to crow about the Kaspersky false positive. Of course the FP deals with the actual program module so they do need to let users know but I still think deep down they're smiling. :)

    Further, if anyone was wondering what yesterdays updates to the program modules were about (like I was) it appears that it was mostly to deal with how trial keys are handled. For more info see here: http://info.drweb.com/show/2577
