The following appeared in my Zone Alarm scheduled scan and in on-access scans when I attempted to upload the file to Virus Total:
"Decription Anti-virus detected an infected file
Date / Time 2009/02/08 05:55:30-5:00 GMT
Type On-Access scan
Virus name not-a-virus:PSWTool.Win32.OEPass.h
Filename C:\Programs-Utilities-Updates & Service Packs\Adobe Acrobat 6 Professional\PDF Password Crack.exe
I placed the supposedly infected file in Quarantine. A search for tha file on my PC showed it to have been present since 2005.
1) How might I have been infected this way?
2) Does the fact that the virus attacked a file named Password Crack.exe in any way imply that my passwords--stored in my browsers-- were cracked into and are no longer safe.?
3) Is this possibly a false positive?
4) How might leaving this file in quarantine affect the functioning of the Adobe Acrobat Professional?
Thanks in advance:
