I have had two instances of ZoneAlarm reporting the pressence of an active threat "Win32/Slerpon.A" With a threat level of high.
It seems to come with some spam, as each time this alert has popped up, there has been a spam that has just come in. If I
empty Zone Labs Spam from within Outlook, then do another Virus scan, nothing is found.
Coming back to the virus alert popup, when I select either "delete" or "quarantine" from the actions available, it always says "error"...cannot automatically deal with this threat.
If I select "what to do next", it says use Google to search for the virus name and the word "removal".
I have searched for all combinations of "Win32/Slerpon.A", and I only ever find lots of Win32 viruses, but nothing that includes Slerpon. This includes the Zone LAbs site.
If the product identifies it, and indeed says it is high level threat, then I would have thought there would be some other reference to it somewhere.
Have I encountered
a virus, Is it so new that no-one has seen it yet -I'm not that special, If no-one has seen it, how come ZoneAlarm can identify it???
Any help in dealing with this appreciated.
