    Hi,

    A few months ago we had a thread about a file imon1.dat :
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=160635

    The discussion in that thread did get a little bit heated.
    Please, I don't want this thread going that way too !

    As some of you know, I run several file-integrity-checkers.

    Recently I did a test on my XP-home computer.
    You can read about it in this thread:

    It was about testing an ANI Exploit.
    IMON jumped up immediatelly with a warning.
    I wanted to take a screenshot, so I waited a few minutes before answering the IMON warning while I was starting my screen-capture program and taking the screenshot.

    Please note:
    This thread is not about that ANI Exploit.
    That ANI Exploit is just only an example.

    One of my file-integrity-checkers warned me that this new file was added to my system:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\imon1.dat

    I don't think that there is anything malicious with respect to this file.
    IMON was just doing its job: warning me (I don't let any scanner on my system do its job automatically without giving me a warning; but that's my choice).

    (Of course Marcos, if you want me to do it, I can send you the file in private ;)).

    Well, this was only meant to shed some light upon this file in general.

    It's a text file that contains information about files that IMON has blocked.
