    I am not running highjack this and I don't plan on downloading it anytime soon. I allready have the files isolated in a zip file and just need to know where to upload them so someone can look them over, Ad-aware has allready added them to there protection and I just need to know where I can upload them here.

    Hi twiztedmatt1007,

    We do not allow the uploading of malware files to the forum. I will PM one of the Administrators and direct them to your thread here.

    Please zip/RAR the files and attach them to an email addressed to me. You'll find my email address in my profile (left bottom corner).

    Thanks in advance,

    And know Paul will take care they will be forwarded among others to the submit@diamondcs.com.au email in my signature which is from the DiamondCS lab guys who will like to deal with it. We can't advertise that email address enough, just submit and you know it's in safe hands.

    Indeed Jooske - malware will be looked at and submitted to all software companies who could benefit from those - and as a result the users from all softwares ;).

    So don't hesitate to send them in, anyway; we keep writing this all time, only the very known normal stuff detected everywhere you can delete just like that, but everything which could be new, suspicious, new variant, anyhow a doubt about it, please do submit before deleting it from your system and the internet community as a whole will be very grateful!

    Thanks in name of the internet community as a whole!
    Fortunately that is Gavin's email account as he knows how to deal with the stuff second to none! Hurray for the Gavinator!
    Good Paul has an "all developers" forwarding email service too. It is very important all nasties get in developers hands so defense is spread over the world and hopefully stays few steps ahead of the malware development.
    It should be standard in instructions everywhere and we keep saying it in every support thread, to please submit the nasties, even if you think it's nice to have your system clean at the moment, we want to be sure it's not a new variant and you won 't get into new trouble with unexpected remnants etc.
