    Keep seeing this one a lot but no idea what it is exactly. It's on a machine that keeps reporting that Eset has been disabled. When I turn Eset back on and scan I find several instances of this small.PAC trojan downloader. It's location is in the system restore directory. From what I can tell it looks to be a false positive but then again, Eset keeps getting disabled and employees don't have the ability to do that. I had one of the detected files analyzed and the report was that there was nothing wrong with it except that it "creates mutex". That was it.

    Trojan downloaders with "Small" in the name basically don't do anything but download other files from the web.

    If you suspect that unrecognized malware is running on the machines, create a SysInspector log via the shortcut in the Start menu and submit it to ESET for analysis as per the instructions here.
