    Hello,

    i have virus sample which i think is a autoit.xx variant
    i am trying to send the sample to eset, samples@eset.com and sample@eset.com for analysis using various mail clients
    but the problem is other mail clients detects it as virus and does not allow me to upload, And i am not sure if "submit the file to analysis" does really works..
    coz i have tried earlier sending the samples via it..never got the update for those variants, until i mailed them....

    Gmail: doesn;t accepts .exe files, so attach zip files
    Yahoo : Detects the virus ( Norton AVS )
    rediffmail : Detects the Virus ( Fsecure )
    myway.com : doesn't accepts .zip / .exe files.....
    what do i do..... how i do i make sure my samples do reach eset....
    i dont even get confirmation from them, bout samples, reaching to them

    thankz

    Hi,

    Just to shed some light to your inquiry. Don't you have or use MS Outlook or Outlook Express?

    I think that using either one will allow you to be able to send the samples to ESET and this will not be scanned by the web AVs that Yahoo, Hotmail and other popular web based email clients have.

    Hope this helps,

    Carlos

    You should archive (zip up) the files and protect them with a password. That way the virus scanners can't access the virus inside and thus not detect it.

    Or simply upload it to a file sharing service, such as rapidshare and send us a link to the file.

    Hello,

    Did you protect the .ZIP files with a password, such as "infected", "sample" or "virus"?

    Also, did you try changing the extension of the file from ".ZIP" to something like ".RENAMETOZIP"?

    Usually, performing those activities will obfuscate the file attachment to the point where it can be successfully transferred.
