I was reading a Microsoft news group  and came across this post

Got this during a scan of my computer:

infected: object C:\hp\bin\python-2.2.3.exe:\comparisons.html

result: trojan horse PHP/MPack.B

status: infected embedded object

inefected: object C:\hp\bin\python-2.2.3.exe

What can/should I do about this?

Thanks for your help.


then there is another post


I got the same thing with my free AVG, but it was not moved to virus valut.
Have no idea what to do. Any help is appreciated!!!

Mine says Comparisons.HTML PHP/MPACKB

Python-2.2.1.exe

then finnaly

I just read on the AVG forum, many folks  have gotten this threat today, it
is a false positive. To clear it, update your virus definitions and then run

another scan. The new update is suppose to fix it. I did an update, then
another scan, and it finally came back clean. Seems it isn't going in
people's virus vaults.

Hope this helps........:-)
