hi, I got a virus warning when I Dodnloading "setuptools-0.6c3-py2.5.egg.zip" "TrojanSpy.Delf.s" , can you check the "stuptools" zip file
No, I can't, since I don't know what you mean by "check". I don't know what TronjanSpy.Delf.s *is*. Note that I built the current cheeseshop release of setuptools on a *Linux* machine, so I don't think there's any way it can be infected with a Windows virus. The only possible vector for that would be if the cli.exe and gui.exe files were affected, since I build those on Windows. So if that was what the warning was about, let me know.
Otherwise, you should report this as a false positive to your antivirus vendor, so that they can fix their program. It's likely that it is seeing some random data in the zipfile that happens to resemble some portion of the trojan in question.
