    We are using updated NOD32 installations and we have several cases of computers that have their system date changed to the year 2020.

    I have tried to zip the sample file for eset analysis but most email systems are blocking the attachment even when encrypted with a password (I hope eset will have FTP for this). In lieu of this, I have used Submit file for analysis option and it worked.

    Going back to the said malware, anyone here also affected by it?

    Encrypted RAR archive won't be blocked because it can't be read . ZIPs , however , can be blocked because the extensions inside can be read inside . Use password-protected RAR.


    You'd better upload the sample somewhere (e.g. rapidshare.de or 4storing.com) and send ESET Labs a link to the uploaded URL.

    thanks for the tip, I've never thought of that. I've successfully submitted the malware sample using the method you've described above.

    Interestingly, since the affected computer will have the year set at 2020, once it encounters another autorun.inf virus, the console will say that the "date occured" is in the future.

    Alot of AV's tho along with some paid firewalls if you change the date it disables changing to Demo mode or to Inactive. allowing other things to install passed the AV.

    Just a thought.
