    Hi guys.

    I've just been browsing the forums at www.thedvdforums.com and one of the threads pops up this -

    http://www.karl.tracey.dsl.pipex.com/virus.jpg

    What's strange is that it only appears if I view the page in Internet Explorer. If I view it in Firefox I get nothing.

    I've posted a report there and the mods have had a look at the pages code and can't find anything out of the ordinary. I've googled for that virus and can't find much so I'm just wondering if anyone knows what IRC/Spyworm.B.trojan is?

    TIA

    Thanks Blackspear. Out of interest do you know what it does? I think it's a false positive but can't find out anywhere what it's supposed to do.

    I suggest you make sure you have the latest version of the program 2.12.3 installed and all programs are set to higher efficiency mode in the HTTP scanner setup (in IMON setup) as Blacskpear pointed out here: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=37509 coz IMON was supposed to intercept it before AMON had done so.
