Is this real or a false positive?
I scanned a short while ago, and found this: Backdoor.Win32.IRCBot.are,C:\WINDOWS\97029.exe
I did a search on ZA site and Kaspersky Labs and found nothing but ...
When I googled it I found on http://vgrep.viruspool.net/virus.cms the following:
Backdoor.Win32.IRCBot.are IKARUS T3SCAN V1.28 T3 V1.01.15 16-Dec-2007

And there's a bit more.
So is it or isn't it?
Re: Is this real or a false positive?
How are you doing? I hope you are well.
Sounds very suspicious. Copy the file and upload it to Jotti and Virustotal to confirm and then remove if it malicious with these:
If the stuff does not clear up after a scan, then start in the safemode and scan agian and once more in the normal mode. If it says bad files in the system information, then disable the system restore and then rescan in the safe mode. Delete all found.
Follow up with a full online scan with the Internet Explorer (these two use activeX - allow the activeX in the ZA too)
