    Hi

    On the 12th I downloaded the latest Definitions from Symantec and
    did a full system scan with Norton Antivirus. Nothing was found.
    I submitted a trojan I knew I had to them on the 12th.
    Usualy they send an e-mail explaining it is either in their database or it isn't a problem file. This time I got no responce but today
    their program is catching it. TDS-3 allready does under a different name. The interesting thing is their site shows the tyrojan detedted
    along time ago. Have a look C

    Weird. There's no apparent need for secrecy or silence here.


    ...Or is there?

    Symantec labels all trojans that have the same functionality as Backdoor.trojan. See also the information on their website:

    That is what is stated at Symantec's website. Usually if you submit a trojan server for detection, Symantec will reply with a name, such as Backdoor.Tron or Backdoor.Latinus (there are many which come under this generic detection group). Did they provide such a name for your sample?
