More about Antivirus XP.

First of all, if you get a suspicious download send it to VirusTotal (www.virustotal.com/) which checks it via a number of AV engines.  As noticed in this article (www.theregister.co.uk/2008/08/22/anatomy_of_a_hack/), the XP AV scam is the best yet.  It’s actually worth reading the article carefully.  The author was testing via VM–Virtual Machine–and a lot of badware is good at detecting this.  That presents my shifty little brain with all sorts of possibilities but I’m simply not in the game–any of them–any more.
