    I am currently using NOD32. I would occasionally use eScan TooKit Free to find anything else that NOD missed. Once in awhile eScan would find a file to be infected with a virus called BkCln.Unknown which NOD completely missed. Those infected files were usually found in my browser cache or temp folder.

    What is this "virus"? I tried googling it but nothing shows up.

    Thanks, that was actually the only thread I found through Google earlier but I still dont know what I am suppose to look for.

    First off, I have trouble understanding what FukenFooser is saying. I got the same infection message as him but I dont what "it" actually is.

    Was it a mailpv, byteVerify, java script, trojan or what?

    I agree, the more I read it the more confusing it seems?

    so... when do you guys move this thread?
    *sorry... I also can't find anything.*
    [advice]
    Try submitting the offending file to online scanners like Jotti's
    try submitting file to eScan/NOD32 people.
    But the "unknown" tag says that it may be heuristics at work, could it have been a false postive?

    Looks like one of those pesky Java things. Probably either from a "wrong" kinda site, or just a harmless file that has the "right" byte-signature at the "right" place.

    My eScan commercial edition does not report any BkCln.unknown in its virus list.
