    Just tested it.
    They are using Kaspersky.

    Tried to send a Win95/SK virus and got "Virus.Win9x.SK.8699" - no one else calls this infection like this except KAV ;)

    What difference does it make when you test it again? You have to have at least knownledge which viruses having which names for each vendor. And Kaspersky always starts virus names (fileinfectors) first with Virus.ThenSystem.ThenName.ThenVersion. Symantec for instance starts with W32/ etc.

    BTW... Umur nama? Umur berapa? :rolleyes:
