    Now that you've received a copy of this, have you tested to see whether or not WormGuard would have stopped it? Pete

    Believe it or not - I somehow got "over-looked" when copies were being mailed.

    Go figure! :D Pete

    I didn't notice a "Yes, it did" or a "No, it didn't" there, Gavin. :D Pete

    Okay, just so I'm totally clear on this (assuming that's possible about me and anything! <g>) -

    Simply having WormGuard running on your computer would have prevented infection by KillAV.N even though it was brand-new, unknown and not in anyone's DB?

    It would have warned on the file no matter how it came?

    Got some screenshots? Pete

    Haven't got screenshots sorry :p

    Yes, nothing can happen with this trojan, when Wormguard is installed and protecting. Thats a sure thing unless the user unwisely allows it :) Sorry I cant go into it too far, im still carefully analysing the complex trojan/XDCC hack kit mentioned in the TDS thread.

    And will be at it for a while yet ! Nasty things these are becoming :mad:
