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
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........:-)
