    Just found this very important headsup which will effect most people. KAV and AVG are both exempt though !!!

    . . .

    AntiVirus Filename Bypassing

    Summary

    Several AntiVirus programs do not scan filesnames that contain non-printable ASCII characters, in addition instead of blocking them they are simply ignored.

    Far from affecting "most people":

    Vulnerable Systems:
    * BitDefender Antivirus
    * Trustix Antivirus
    * Avast! Antivirus
    * Cat Quick Heal Antivirus
    * Abacre Antivirus
    * VisNetic Antivirus (bypass only with manual scan)
    * AntiVir Personnal Edition Antivirus
    * Clamav for Windows Antivirus
    * Antiy Ghostbusters Professional Edition

    jim,

    You're right, maybe i should have avoided saying most. I do know though that there are a number of people anyway on here who do use at least the following.

    BitDefender

    Avast

    AntiVir

    Clamav

    I wonder why Symantec and McAfee aren't mentioned in any category (vulnerable or not affected). Same for NOD32...

    It's simple test. You can test it yourself with your antivirus if you have a virus infected file. And we can share our test results in here.
